Mon Ami Gabi - Paris - Las Vegas

I was in Vegas for the weekend and had an early dinner at Mon Ami Gabi at Paris. I just wanted something light so I went with the Pepper Ahi Tuna Salad. I tried a Blue Moon beer with it. It's a light tasting beer that you add an orange slice to for flavor.

After I ordered I was surprised at the speed at which I was served. The salad came before the beer made it to the table (this was nice since I was by myself and didn't have anything read to keep me busy). The meal was fresh, filling, tasty and just what I was after. The service in the restaurant was prompt, polite and attentive. I would recommend this place on a sunny afternoon. The patio is the best place to enjoy people watching along with the Bellagio fountains.

Crave Cookies & Cupcakes

Last weekend we were out for a walk and we passed by a storefront I've strolled by numerous times but never went in....well this time was different. Maybe it was the smell, maybe it was the fact that I was hungry, or maybe I just wanted something sweet.

Where you ask ? Crave Cookies & Cupcakes

The selection was great. They had all sorts of different flavours. We at first thought, we'd get one each and a mini for our little guy...but when they asked us we quickly said 'HALF DOZEN !'.

We selected a Lemon Lime Twist, a Crave-o-licious, a Velvet Elvis, a Princess (vanilla), a Dirty Blonde, and of course for me Just Chocolate.

And as you may have already guessed, they didn't stand a chance. The cupcakes were awesome ! the only warning is...they are not cheap....but...they are well worth it once and a while.

I would highly recommend Crave if you need a sweet fix !
