Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
Everyone makes New Year's resolutions, and most of the time, they don't last. This year, try a different approach: Enjoy a little Las Vegas indulgence first, and then you'll be ready to stick to your New Year's pledges.
For example, if you have a sweet tooth and are committed to cutting back on treats, hey, that's commendable. But before you do, enjoy one last round of delicious desserts at the Sugar Factory inside Paris Las Vegas or Ghirardelli's at Carnaval Court, the outdoor promenade at Harrah's Las Vegas.
Suppose you vow to save money by eating out less this year. Again, that's admirable - but that's no reason to give up your culinary cravings completely, so take a January trip to Vegas and enjoy a few more award-winning restaurants, then start your resolutions in February. We won't tell.
Perhaps you're a sports fan whose significant other claims you are spending too much time in front of the TV so you've promised to cut back on your sports viewing? Well, get one last screen-fest in with football playoffs, college and pro basketball, and hockey all going on simultaneously on huge screens throughout luxurious Vegas sports books.
Your resolutions can wait. After all, you can't break one if you haven't started it yet. So enjoy a little Vegas and then your New Year's commitments will be easier to keep!
Tapas. Whether you like them warm or cold, you'll find a tasty variety of Spanish appetizers at restaurants all over Las Vegas.
Enjoy tapas and more than 50 other shareable dishes at Johnny Smalls inside the Hard Rock Hotel. Or head over to ARIA Resort & Casino at CityCenter and grab some authentic tapas at Julian Serrano. The renowned chef is a native of Madrid and dishes out great tapas along with signature shellfish, ceviche, paellas and more.
For an intimate setting, try La Cave at Wynn Las Vegas, the perfect retreat for indulging in savory small plates. At Jaleo inside the new Cosmopolitan, chef Jose Andres brings the flavors of one of the country's first successful tapas restaurants to Las Vegas.
