5:45 AM – My alarm went off and I immediately dressed for my morning workout.
6:00 AM – I went to the hotel gym to get in a run on the treadmill and to watch news coverage.
7:15 AM – Post workout, I showered, got dressed, and conducted my first phone conference call of the day. I ate breakfast while on my call.
8:30 AM – I made my way downstairs to the conference for the first of four important meetings.
10:45 AM – I checked out of the hotel and made my way to the Aria Hotel via Uber.
11:15 AM – I checked into the Aria and was thrilled with the beautiful view from our room.
11:45 AM – After a work call, I went down to Javier’s for a solo lunch. I have been to Javier’s multiple times and I was craving their chile rellenos.
My lunch totally hit the spot and I answered emails in between bites.
12:30 PM – Back in my room, I unpacked while on a conference call, then worked on work emails and documents.
2:00 PM – John arrived at the hotel and got settled in. I took a nap while he worked. Once I was up, we both did a bit more work before readying for dinner.
6:30 PM – We both love walking, so we walked to dinner. We ended up walking all the way to the Wynn to do some window shopping, then made our way to the Palazzo where we had dinner reservations at CUT.
7:30 PM – CUT was crowded, but they sat us on time. Amen. This was our second time at the restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. We started our meal by sharing a salad and noshing on the house-made bread.
John also had a custom whiskey cocktail made table-side.
We each had a steak for our entree (I had a Wagyu petite filet that was amazing!), and we shared Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes for sides.
We also shared a carrot cake with meringue for dessert.
Everything was perfect about our dining experience – the food, the ambiance, and the service.
9:30 PM – We walked back to our hotel and enjoyed seeing the Chinese New Year decorations each Hotel displayed along the way.
