Hey guys, writing from the Westin in Vegas (btw, this is the BEST deal on hotels in vegas for friday/sat. If you book early, $119 a night all day long, plus triple Starwood points right now.) Normally stay at TheHOTEL at Mandalay Bay, but this place is really nice for the money, I'd rather spend the extra $300/night on clothing Anyways, the new forum shops are done, and they are spectacular, at least to look at. New stores for guys include Bally, Ted Baker, Scoop NYC, and probably some others I'm forgetting. Women will enjoy a Kate Spade and Juicy store, in addition to a bunch of others, it is really nice looking though. The coolest thing that they've added to this place is the new flagshop Tourneau store though. This place is seriously as big as a Best Buy and full of high end watches. I saw IWC, Rolex, Patek, Breitling, Vacheron, Ulysse Nardin, Zenith, JLC, etc... prices more or less sucked, they had a preowned daytona stainless for $14k... (ugh) but it was cool to see almost every high end watch under one roof. We went to Lutece tonight. That place is awesome. I would give it a 45/50 overall (I'm going to post restaurant reviews with scores soon in the food section) with a great ambience (except the music), wonderful food, appetizers, and desserts. The lamb was probably the best I've had anywhere and the pan seared foie gras was to die for. Best thing was, I got 20% off by booking at Dinnerbroker.com. Total bill for the two of us including appetizers, wine, dinner, and dessert, was about $150 before tax and tip. Still lots of American Jackass looks going on here, will post some more about this later, and some pics from our trip, once I get on a broadband connection.
