Enjoy the Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity

Apparently the original one is located in New York, and that’s the main one people said I had to go to. When I was looking around for “things to do” in Las Vegas, I came across a Serendipity there near Caesar’s. I had hoped to be able to go and enjoy a frozen hot chocolate. On the last day, a friend and I went walking around and got there for brunch. We walked up and gave our names to reservations. She took down my friend’s phone number and that became our pager when a table was ready for us. That was pretty neat. It allowed us to be able to walk through the stores at Caesars.

When we were seated, my friend decided to get one of their sandwiches. I went with a Banana Cream waffle. Both were quite large in size but very yummy.

Then we got the main treat. a Frozen Hot Chocolate. I assumed there was only one type, but they had a few different ones. Both of us decided on the Mint one. It tasted like liquid Andes chocolates. VERY YUMMY!!

Interesting enough they spell it as Frrrozen Hot Chocolate. And you can order to make and have some at home. Might just have to do that.

Have you been and had the frozen hot chocolate? Which Serendipity? 

 

 

How cool, an Ice Bar in Vegas

I read about an ice bar experience in a Vegas hotel a few years back. I knew whenever I went, I was going to track it down and go check it out. Last year was my first time in Las Vegas and I can say I had a blast. A number of people in a group I was with was interested in going too. The Mandalay Bay was just down the street from our hotel, so on one of the days there, a few of us went to the Minus 5 bar.

There were a few different packages to getting into the bar. Most of us chose the basic one (this includes a parka, gloves, and 2 drinks). If you want more drinks, you can open a tab. We had to put our purses, shoes, and all electronics (they said it was because of the cold) in a locker. When we were all ready, we walked in. First thing I thought of was that it was small. That actually makes sense because everything was ice, the walls, benches, tables, light fixtures, bar, and drinking glasses.

We all got a drink and hung out around a table for a little bit. A photographer came in and we took a couple of photos. Then an alcove in the back corner was open, so we sat down and chatted. One of the guys was from Indiana and took off his parka for a bit, he said the temp was about average at home. Not so for the rest of us, being all from Northern California (oh, and one from Oregon).One of the guys started stacking our cups and another guy decided to knock his into the tower. This made them crash and break. The photographer was back making the rounds and saw this occur. She gave the guy the “look” he shook his head and pointed to others, which made us all point to each other and she caught that moment on camera. It completely summed up the experience. I couldn’t have had a more fun group in there for this memory.I don’t remember what we all talked about, but we laughed so much and I guessed looked like we were having so much fun, that other people came over and joined us for a little bit. We finally decided to leave to get ready for dinner. Chipped in for the photo package and marked this off the list.

Have you been to an ice bar? thoughts? Would you go more then once?
