Another Hidden Gem on the Strip

We found a hidden gem during a recent foray to O’Sheas. It’s free entertainment in the form of “The Rock and Roll Game Show.” It’s a little music, a little comedy, a little karaoke…and a whole lot of people getting silly in public.

You Had Us at "Cotton Candy Martini"

There we were, strolling outside of Caesars Palace. Loving the vibe on the Strip. And we stumble across a charming little restaurant called Serendipity 3. We knew we were in trouble, because this was the first thing we saw. Soon after, it began. A journey into deliciousness. Into decadence. Into colors and flavors beyond description. First,….
