Tomorrow I hit the skies for a quick Vegas trip to experience 2 top MGM destination hotels! Right on the strip, New York New York and the Monte Carlo have lots to offer those who want the total getaway package. Gaming, larger-than-life pool scenes, and night life like Cirque de Soleil’s Zumanity and the latest show to hit the Monte Carlo, Jabbawockeez, make Vegas the quintessential adult playground. Right now, both hotels are each running exciting sweepstakes packages enabling your quick escape without dropping a penny…at least before you set foot on the gaming floor. I’ve made it easy for you!

Being the gastronomic geek that I am, there are two venues that I can’t wait to visit. One is Nine Fine Irishmen at New York New York. The entire bar was built in Ireland, shipped to America, and installed in the heart of the Vegas Strip. With
Harp Lager and Magners Irish Cider on tap, I can only guess how the menu will authentically round out their extensive whiskey selection as well. The other is Minus 5 Ice Bar in the Monte Carlo Hotel. It’s name is completely self explanatory. Everything inside is made of ice…the walls, the bar, the sculptures, the seats…even the glasses that hold their signature vodka-based cocktails are crafted from frozen artesian water imported from New Zealand. An on site ice carver changes the bar and sculptures every 6-8 weeks, continually re-inventing the experience. Since the interior is kept at a steady minus 5 C (23 F) guests are outfitted in Eskimo-like ice gear including insulated jackets and gloves.
