Vegas has it all, big and small.
This weekend, Vegas has plenty of sweet and surprising goodies for your Easter basket. What's more, you won't have to hunt for them either - you can find them all here!
Friday, April 6:
Saturday, April 7:
Sunday, April 8: There's no better way to end a weekend of partying in Vegas than a nice brunch, and this Easter Sunday, our restaurants are pulling out the stops with elegant meals and unbeatable specials.
Vegas is unique in that any time of day, whether it is six in the morning or six at night, there is always something going on, every single day of the week. It is a never-ending adventure, full of activities, excellent cuisine and great times just waiting to be had.
The best part is that you can experience Vegas the right way with fewer crowds by planning your vacation midweek. Mid-week occupancy is 13 percent lower than weekend occupancy, so you will have more options for seats at your favorite shows, more leniency in restaurant reservations and so much more!
No matter what you plan to do in Vegas, consider experiencing it all on a Tuesday or Wednesday. There are plenty of shows and events that take place mid-week. For example, this Tuesday, April 10, you could check out IMPACT-An Explosion of Magic and Music at the Clarion Hotel and Casino, see ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace for some adult entertainment or hit up Excalibur for a little Thunder from Down Under action. Check out more events here for any day of the week.
Imagine waking up bright and early in the morning to hit up Bali Hai Golf Course with the buddies, then joining your wife for a delectable breakfast at The Venetian's Bouchon. Next, relax with some serious pampering at the Encore Spa for a massage or exotic body scrub. You could then head over to the Stratosphere for a bit of adventure with SkyJump. (You'll want to have an empty stomach for this one!)
But wait, the day has just begun! After your relaxing and adventurous morning sans crowds, sit back, grab a beer and cheer on your favorite team at Lagasse's Stadium at The Palazzo. Then, head over to the Flamingo for Nathan Burton Comedy Magic or stop by Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden at The Mirage to glimpse lions and tigers and dolphins ... oh my!
Because it is midweek, it's easier to get reservations at the top restaurants in Vegas. Finish off a fantastic day with mouth-watering cuisine from Craftsteak at MGM Grand or Wolfgang Puck's Spago at Caesars Palace, open every day. Finally, head over to some of the Strip's most luxurious lounges including Chandelier at The Cosmopolitan or ARIA's Gold Lounge for a signature cocktail and fabulous people watching.
There is always something happening in Vegas, any day, any time. Book your trip mid-week to the crowds! See you soon!
If you've ever caught yourself at home watching cooking shows, mouth watering as celebrity chefs prepare their signature dishes, wishing that you could taste those delicious creations, look no further than Las Vegas! Vegas is host to several celebrity chefs including Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse, Todd English, Bobby Flay and more!
Known for the best of restaurant hospitality, Wolfgang Puck opened his first Las Vegas restaurant, Spago, in The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in 1992. His restaurant thrived, so he opened five more Las Vegas-based restaurants including Chinois in The Forum Shops, Postrio at The Venetian, Lupo in Mandalay Bay, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at MGM Grand and CUT at The Palazzo.
Emeril Lagasse is widely known for his jovial personality and Cajun and creole-influenced cuisine on his show Emeril Live. For a taste of his delicious New Orleans-style dishes, visit Emeril's New Orleans Fish House at MGM Grand, try Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian or dine at The Palazzo's Table 10 or Lagasse's Stadium as you watch the big game.
Todd English is a renowned chef, restaurateur, author, entrepreneur and television star. For a delicious Mediterranean meal, check out the beautiful and romantic Olives at Bellagio for a view of the Bellagio fountains every half-hour or grab a bite from the Todd English P.U.B. at Crystals for traditional East Coast grub.
Known for his expertise in barbecue grilling, Bobby Flay's dishes are bold, zesty and fun. Check out his restaurant Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace for southwestern flare. His Mexican spice-rubbed pork tenderloin and mango-spiced crusted tuna are sure to impress.

There's a reason it's difficult to find clocks in our resorts. It's because in Vegas, no matter what time it is -- it's Happy Hour! Since it's Friday, and 5 o'clock somewhere, let's talk Happy Hour with some great places to down a cocktail in Vegas.
Blue Martini at Town Square Las Vegas has drink specials from 4-8 p.m. every Friday and is a great place to kickstart your weekend of fun.
Downtown, there are plenty of places to enjoy a drink and some scenery. Check out the Happy Hour deals at Hennessey's Tavern on Fremont Street. At the opposite end of the Strip, another place to enjoy a beverage with some unique surroundings is the Hostile Grape at M Resort, where you can choose from 160 wines in a contemporary "cellar."
Happy Hour in Vegas! Almost redundant, isn't it?

Sometimes we blog about things because they are relevant to Las Vegas' nonstop energy, unique activities, electric atmopshere, or because they somehow specifically relate to the city we know and love as the world's most exciting and vibrant destination.
But sometimes, we're just hungry. And in the mood for pizza.
What better place to find New York-style pizza than at New York-New York, where Il Fornaio offers some seriously tasty wood-fired flavors, and the wood-burning brick oven at LAVO inside the Palazzo always produces authentic pizza.
Wolfgang Puck's signature Smoked Salmon Pizza with Dill Cream is just one of the delicacies on the menu at Spago inside Caesars Palace, and for those of you who are up for the challenge, try to find the hidden pizza stand inside the new Cosmopolitan hotel. It's so hidden even we're not sure where it is, but trust us, it's in there.
No matter how you slice it, there's always good pizza to be found in Las Vegas! For more pizza options -- and details about all the other foods you can enjoy in the many gourmet restaurants in town, check out our dining section at LasVegas.com!
