Mandalay Bay Food & Wine Event Teaser

Pin It PIN IT!

Happy Tuesday, friends! If you’re starving for a new recipe, stay tuned! I have one of those coming up right after this! Right now, I’m going to gush a bit about my trip to Vegas this UPCOMING weekend for the Food and Spirit’s Weekend! Vegas, it’s my happy place.

The event is being held at the BEAUTIFUL Mandalay Bay resort and casino. Guys, can I tell you how much I love Mandalay Bay? It was one of the first casinos I went to on my very first trip to Vegas (January of 2009) and I’ve been hooked ever since. This year will mark my first year actually staying there. Since most of the rooms look like this…

and the pool like this…

Well, I guess you could say I’m a little psyched. But that’s not all I’m pumped up about! The line-up of events is incredible. On Friday, we’re meeting and mingling with some fabulous wine makers at THEhotel at Minus5° Ice Bar. THEhotel is super duper fancy and the Ice Bar is one place I’ve been dying to check out. Pair wine, wine makers and a fabulous setting and you have one happy girl. Plus, we get dinner at STRIPSTEAK. So, yeah.

We have a full day of fabulous activities lined up for Saturday, including a late brunch and champagne toast. After that, a lunch at Fleur by Hubert Keller. Which is completely awesome. Then we have an interactive session with Vincent Pilon and a private dinner with Private Dinner with Christophe and Jeff Yedlin.

One of my favorite parts of the itinerary, though, HAS to be the private viewing of a concert with Colbie Calliat and Gavin DeGraw. Yes, you read that right. Private viewing. Oh and we get dessert too, of course.

On Sunday, we have a fun farmers market activity and I get a two hour spa appointment at Mandalay’s fabulous spa.

Can I just say I LOVE MY JOB? Because I freakin’ LOVE MY JOB.
