Our birthdays are two days apart in May, and we have made amazing foodie plans for a special weekend. "Vegas Uncorked" is a 4 day food and wine event sponsored by Bon Appetit magazine.
We have three free nights at the Paris Las Vegas, so we will arrive on Thursday evening. Here is a description of the events we will be attending! (We are still considering a Thursday night chef's dinner at Guy Savoy's as well.)
