Vegas Recap Day 3 and 4: Michale Jackson's Dad, David Copperfield, Bass Pro Shops,The Buffet and Studio B

Here is part 2 of our Las Vegas trip. You can see part 1 HERE. Get ready for some more photos and major food porn!


Day 3

Sunday: I took a photo in front of the "Welcome Las Vegas" sign. I know, very touristy, but I don't care. It's such a beautiful sign. It's even more beautiful at night with sparkly bright lights.





We had brunch at The Buffet inside the Wynn hotel and casino. Zagat.com rated it top 10 best buffets in Vegas and Yelp rated it 4 stars. The line to get in was very long but we were commintted. We were hungry and literally drooling over the photos on Yelp. 

The long wait was worth it. Just like Wicked Spoon, they had a variety of food to choose from and were served and presented elegantly. Everything I had was amazing. Very fresh and delicious! Also, the decor was beautiful and whimsical and the service was great as well.

Wynn Las Vegas
3131 Las Vegas Blvd S

Las VegasNV 89109
Brunch $35







Plate 1: Cucumber gazpacho, squid salad, shrimp with cocktail and hollandaise sauce. Their shirmp cocktail was addictive. It was sweet by itself and it was even better with the cocktail sauce and hollandaise. I had 3 cucumber gazpacho because it was that good. Very cool and refreshing with a hint of sweetness. The squid was very soft and tender and had a nice tangy sauce. I ate it with a tostada shell.


Tomato gazpacho with mozarella ball. Very yummy too!


Plate 2: As you can see I got more of the shrimp cocktail. Then, I tried their sushi rolls and smoked salmon with capers and horseradish on toast. Salmon and sushi rolls were fresh and delicious.


Plate 3 Ham and egg benedict, baked salmon, pork bbq bun, pepper crusted smoked bacon and prime rib with hollandaise sauce. They smoke their own bacon, OMG. I just died.


Plate 4: For brunch, they had a great selection of desserts, but these were the ones that caught my eye. 
vanilla cream puff, banana bread pudding, chocolate brownie mousse, blueberry and lemon custard and white chocolate covered marshmallow pop. Everything was delicious, but my favorite is the banana bread pudding. It's warm, moist and comforting.


White espresso and coconut gelato. I ate it with the bread pudding ^_^.


See that man in a light brown jacket with a black hat? That's Michael Jackson's dad. I saw him in front of The Buffet while waiting for Kiko. Pretty random huh? A hot Asian chick was walking with him and 3 big body guards.




Afterwards, we went to Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. It's like Sephora for men but 10X bigger. It's a one stop shop for outdoor sports such as fishing, hunting, shooting and etc. They have fishing gears, clothing, boats, motor bikes and etc. It even has it's own hotel, casino and restaurant.

Also, if you watch the reality show Top Shot on History channel, then you probably know that Bass Pro Shops is their major sponsor. Kiko and I love that show. He actually got me into it! I always mimic how the host talk especially when he says, "The winner of this challenge will receive $2,000 gift card from Baaaaaaass Pro Shop" with hands on his waist lol.



People were literally staring at me as I posed next to this big horn lol.




They offer fishing lessons for free!








This place is huge!!! All I did was follow Kiko around and took pictures ^_^.



I want one of these camouflage tents. It's too cute!





Sat down on the fish bench to take a little break. 

After Bass Pro Shops, we went back to our hotel to rest. Then, we went to see David Copperfield live on stage. If you don't know who he is, he is a very popular illusionist and according to Oprah, "The Greatest Illusionist of our time". We decided to see him because we wanted to see some kind of magic show. Well, he didn't disappoint. We enjoyed his performance. He was very funny and was very good at what he does. He did some tricks that I thought was worth the expensive ticket price lol.

After the show, around 8:30pm, we decided to walk on the strip. It was still very hot and dry (98 degrees), but I didn't mind. I like how I was able to wear my tank dress and sandals at night. We also gambled a little. It wasn't planned, but we went inside Ceasar's Palace and next thing you know, we were on the slot machines. 


How cute is this? Breakfast at Tiffany's slot machines.



Penny slot machine for me! And look, I won $16.20! Whoo hoo...I lost it after 30 minutes though haha...Dang it!


Random photos on the strip. It's so beautiful!











Day 4

Monday: All our bags are packed and ready to go! We checked out around 10:30 and headed to a buffet for our last meal in Vegas! 

I was so tired when when I woke up, but still managed to put on a little makeup: Wearable smoky eyes with nude pink lips. I'll do a separate post on the makeup and outfits I wore.





Studio B Show Kitchen Buffet in the M Resort Spa and Casino was near the freeway on the way home, so we decided to eat here. It has great reviews on Yelp and was recommended by the locals. Compare to Wicked Spoon and The Buffet at Wynn, this one is way cheaper in price about $15 per person. The food was really good, but I had tasted a few that were very bland.



Just like any other buffets in Vegas, it was very big and had a great selection of food.


Dessert section. I like the tall faux wedding cakes for decoration.


Plate 1: Glass noodle salad, imitation crab salad, corn and bean salad, sushi and pancit. I was surprised to see pancit, a Filipino noodle dish. I tried it, just to see how it compares to my mom. Eh? it was okay. It could use more soy sauce. The crab and corn salad were addicting. I went back for seconds. The sushi was just okay and nothing special.


Plate 2: Calamari, fried breaded shrimp, baked mussels, steamed mussels, fried cod, stuffed salmon with basil cream sauce, Mexican shrimp and chimichurri shrimp. Everything was very good except for the fried cod. It was bland, no flavor at all. 


Plate 3
 All meats: Beef tri tip with bbq sauce, kaluah pork, hamburger steak, pork bbq ribs and beef stroganoff. All very good and tender but the hamburger steak was so bland ugh! It doesn't taste anything at all.


Plate 4: Desserts! Coconut and strawberry meringue, mini key lime pie, creme brule, tiramisu, chocolate souffle and flan. It was perfect! 



That's it for our Vegas trip. It was really fun and enjoyed every bit of my buffet experience lol. Gosh, I'm such a fatty! Now, back to reality, back to work and eating normal haha..






Thanks for stopping by! I will do a separate post on the makeup and outfits I wore in Vegas, so stay tuned!



Have a great weekend!!!
