Peggy and Phyllis join me in Las Vegas for the kickoff to Sisters’ Weekend. After meeting at the airport and picking up our rental car, we go to Caesar’s Palace for lunch at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill. The food is really excellent and we all enjoy our lunches.
Then we jump in the car and head off for Utah where we will spend the next couple of days. Got to stop and say hello to Arizona along the way!
On Friday we visit Zion National Park. We take a walk up the Weeping Wall Trail, visit the Gift Shop, take a look at the Great Arch and travel through the tunnel to the upper portion of Zion. We even see a wild mountain goat. Then we head back into Springdale for lunch at Oscar’s and a little shopping.
One night we go to dinner at the Kokopelli Restaurant at Entrada. Amazingly the food was not too bad!
On Sunday we take the long way to Hoover Dam. We are all concerned about the low level of water and the fact that no one seems to be taking it seriously.
Our weekend winds up with dinner at B & B Ristorante, a Mario Batali venture. We have the pasta tasting menu which turns out to be disappointing. We also catch the show, LOVE, about the Beatles.
Too quickly our weekend is over and we all head home. I think, though, that we all would like to make a weekend get-together an annual occurrence.
