Thanksgiving is that one day when you get the opportunity to either share a lovely moment with the people you love or to torture yourself for 3 hours with people who feel like parasites. It's a matter of perspective. I love sitting with my wife and kids sharing a Thanksgiving meal while we look forward to winter and give thanks for the great year that has passed up by. Of course that is usually interrupted by my mother who needs to ask me if I'm going to lend my sister money and my younger brother who feels like he should be able to take home all the leftovers for his in-laws. Don't get me started on the neighbors who have those kids who never listen and feel they need to pocket my silverware. My aunt shows up with a store bought pie and complains about my gravy being too salty.
Forget that! I'm going to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving.
I figure I can have lunch at Olives at Bellagio followed by a snack and a drink at Comme Ca at Cosmopolitan and then an early dinner at Sage at ARIA and then a late night meal to cap off the eventing at Carnevino at Palazzo. That is the ideal Thanksgiving in Las Vegas.
Don't waste your time with the perfect brine. Don't chop all those vegetables. Find a place in Las Vegas to have drink. Book a nice hotel. See a Las Vegas show. Whatever you do, spend Thanksgiving with the people you really love in Las Vegas.
