Define Sexy At HYDE Bellagio Las Vegas

Thursday April 24, 2014

Hyde BellagioQuantifying sexy is difficult. Frankly, my wife finds me sexy yet most might find me repulsive. It's all relative if you really think about it. That is unless you walk into HYDE Bellagio Las Vegas at the Bellagio Hotel on the Las Vegas strip. The decor features sleek lines that include leather sofas and hardwood floors that invite a comfortable feeling while lending to an upscale atmosphere. The large windows looking out to the Bellagio Fountains and the Las Vegas strip make this indoor/outdoor club the type of place that will define your Las Vegas vacation. If you walk into HYDE Las Vegas and order a Cucumber Watermelon Margarita or an Old Fashioned you'll be transformed into sexy. I'm not lying. If you are at HYDE Bellagio there is a good chance you have your very own brand of sexiness.

HYDE Bellagio opens nightly at 5pm and serves a small plates menu until 10pm and then it gradually transforms into a club after 10pm. VIP tables, a cocktail program and food from Circo right next door makes this a spot that has to be on your to do list in Las Vegas.

Plus, you will look and feel good just sitting at HYDE Bellagio.

Why Do You Go To Las Vegas?

Tuesday April 22, 2014

Las Vegas
Explain the decision to go to Las Vegas. What happens to you when you decide you're going to Las Vegas? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and scream "Vegas!" or do you secretly sit in your cubicle and plan the trip everyday for two weeks? Do you get in your car headed for the grocery store only to end up at a Las Vegas pool drinking mojitos with complete strangers? What happens that makes you head to Las Vegas?

For me, I usually will start dreaming of a destination. I'll think about the drinks I can have at Comme Ca at the Cosmopolitan with a view of the Las Vegas strip and my new found friends. I'll want to lounge on the prestige level at Palazzo Las Vegas before a meal at Carnevino. I'll get excited about seeing Penny Pibbets at Absinthe at Caesars Palace with the thought that maybe she'll just make eye contact with me and let me touch her puppets. I'll fantasize about the food at American Fish at ARIA and the possibility of one day mastering the art of cooking a fish in a bag.

Just like that I need to spend some time lost in the world that is Las Vegas.

Why do you do it?

Las Vegas Weather: Pool Season in Las Vegas

Monday April 21, 2014

Caesars Pool

Abdominal muscles are overrated. That's right, I said it, I'm not ashamed, I don't spend enough time in the gym, I have too much wine and I always order dessert. Just because I indulge does not mean that I will not be busting out my manhandles by the pool this summer. Maybe I won't look like the hottest guy at Rehab or Wet Republic or Liquid but I can guarantee you that I can cannonball with the best of them at the Flamingo, the Tropicana and Mirage. I'll also have my share of mojitos at the Mandalay Bay, the extra large ones at Caesars and even order one of those not so good ones at the Palazzo. (I kidd because I care, I'm sure Palazzo fixed that problem with the rude bartender at the pool who could not believe that she made a poor drink) You see pool season in Las Vegas is that time of the year when you embrace the Las Vegas weather and you work with what you get. Spend more time in the water, a little time in the shade or on a raft in a lazy river, whatever you choose you will be having a good time in Las Vegas!

Is there a right time to go to Las Vegas? Is it too hot? Is it too cold? I'll tell you that there is no wrong time to go to Las Vegas, but if you are planning on sitting by the pool and you want a least average temperature in the 70's your best months for good weather in Las Vegas are between April and October. Of course, the exceptions to that are if you are leaving the Great White North and minus 7 temperature and you find yourself in Las Vegas on a day in February when it's 64, if feels like summer to you.

As summer approaches you should know what the weather in Las Vegas is like before you plan your trip. Don't be alarmed by the warm temperature in July, the drinks are cool and the water is refreshing in the shallow end of the pool. Also, everywhere you go the climate controlled air will keep your body temperature right at that point where you think you might need a sweater.

The weather in the warm months in Las Vegas

  • May Weather in Las Vegas - Perfect golf weather with average highs in the 80's
  • June Weather in Las Vegas - Pool weather with averages in the low 100's, evenings are perfect for walking along the Las Vegas strip
  • July Weather in Las Vegas - I won't lie, it's hot, but it's a dry heat. Personally, this is my favorite time of the year, prices are lower, the pools have plenty of action and naps in the middle of the day make sense.
  • August Weather in Las Vegas - Highs are still in the hundreds but by now the temperatures for you back home are bad so at least you have a cool pool with shaded cabanas to hang out in.
  • September Weather in Las Vegas - If you don't have children this is the best time to visit Las Vegas. The kids are no longer at the pool but the mid 90's temperatures are perfect for longer days with a drink in your hand and your body in the water.

  • October still has some great pool days and the weather begins to look like a Las Vegas interpretation of Fall. Don't expect any major changes unless you walk into the Bellagio Gardens.
