Bocelli at MGM Grand Arena for Allyn’s BIG Birthday
How fortuitous that Allyn was celebrating her BIG birthday the same weekend as her vary favorite singer, Andrea Bocelli, was performing for one night at The MGM Grand Arena.
Both of her kids and her best friend popped in to help her celebrate.
We grabbed a limo for the night so as not have to fight the traffic to say nothing of the alcohol issue. Given it was Allyn’s birthday I asked her to select a restaurant and she said SW Steakhouse at The Wynn. Awkwardly I had to turn her down saying I was not going to get a limo for a two block ride so I looked for a new deluxe place a ways away.
We opted for Michael’s Gourmet Room at South Point Casino. Who would have thought that a locals’ casino would have such a restaurant? The food, service and ambiance were all spectacular. We will be returning for certain.
Allyn made her best friend and daughter join her in wearing fascinators for the evening.
Bocelli was great of course.
The Grand Arena is a great venue in its own right. I need to go there more often.
