America Restaurant (Las Vegas 2013) – The Cronut

During our recent visit to Vegas, they were doing a bunch of renovations at the New York – New York Hotel so we almost didn’t go inside.  Lucky for us we did because we accidentally stumbled across the America Restaurant which serves cronuts.

Spice Market Buffet (Las Vegas 2013)

We’re not as young as we used to be so we don’t spend as much time at buffets in Vegas anymore.  Still, we felt like we needed to try at least one during our visit so we picked the Spice Market Buffet located under the Planet Hollywood casino.

Serendipity 3 (Las Vegas 2013)

Just like The Cheesecake Factory, Serendipity 3 is one of our go-to places in Vegas.  Located right outside Caesar’s Palace on the Strip, they seem to have had some changes to their interior since our last visit (perhaps they’re undergoing renovations).

Oyster Bay (Las Vegas 2013)

Serendipity 3 (Las Vegas – Caesars Palace)

The Webster’s Dictionary defines “serendipity” as the phenomenon of finding valuable things not sought for.  Of course, Annie Edison would say describe the “Webster’s Dictionary defines…” intro as being the Jim Belushi of speech openings.  It accomplishes nothing, but everyone keeps on using it, and no one knows why.
