Spending Money Like It’s Water in Las Vegas

With a  city that has rooms that  can range  from  $29.00  up to and over $29,000, Las Vegas can certainly accomodate everyones budget!

Sernedipity 3 of New York   has been one of my favorite haunts for over 20 years!  I was  so excited to see them open at Caesars Palace . I stopped by recently for their world famous  Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, an indulgent concoction blending 20 different kinds of chocolate into an icy, rich cocoa flavor.($8.95)

Next to me, a couple was feasting on the infamous Golden Opulence sundae for $1,000. The restaurant’s golden opulence sundae is covered in 23-carat edible gold leaf and is also rich in flavor thanks to Tahitian vanilla ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla beans and chunks of rare Chuao chocolate from Venezuela.

They confided in me that yesterday they treated themselves to the $750 cupcake at Palazzo. Made with special chocolate from Venezuela’s Valrhona plantation, Tahitian Gold Vanilla Caviar (the Palazzo calls it the world’s most labor-intensive agricultural crop) and Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac, the Decadence D’Or cupcake is the piece de resistance at the Palazzo’s Sweet Surrender  cupcake shop.

Money means different things to different people!  It can buy you a lot – or just a little. I guess it depends on how much you have to blow.

What else  can  $750  buy you in Las Vegas?

It can get you  One night’s stay at Aria’s  1,465 square-foot penthouse city-view suite with personal concierge and private elevator access.
