Did We Have the Best Time Ever? You BETTE!!!


What a fun Sunday! For our birthdays this year, my friends Michael and Donna flew us all to Las Vegas to see Bette Midler! Can you believe it? We even got to take a private airplane! What a luxury. You just pull right up, show your ID, and get in the plane. No security, and they even valet your car! Wow.

The show was OVER THE TOP. Spectacular. Everything a Vegas show should be and more. Salty songs and trashy jokes. Just up my alley!
Bette is a true entertainer, in every sense of the word. There was glitter everywhere! She had a massive line of dancers, the Caesar Salad Girls, and great back up singers and a wonderful band. We were so close! 6th row and right next to the stage! We could have reached out and grabbed her she was that close!!! I still don't believe what I saw with my own eyes! This teeny tiny 62 year old danced hard and sang even harder for 2 hours! Wow. Her voice is fabulous. It sounded beautiful. Much better than I've ever heard her sound on a recording.
We were laughing and crying through the whole thing. She will be there in rotation with Cher and Elton John for 2 years. If you get a chance to go, DO IT! You will not be dissapointed!

After the show, Allen treated us to dinner at Spago. Another once in a lifetime treat. High end restaurants, in my opinion, are one of the few areas in life where you get what you pay for. I ordered salmon. I am still thinking about it. Even the carrots tasted extra-special. Our waiter was named Zoltan!!! And we couldn't understand a damn thing he said!! Which made us feel even more fancy-schmancy!!
It was a quick one night stay, but it was perfect. Something I shared with my beautiful friends that I will not soon forget...

That sounds like the most fun EVER! I'm jealous that you guys got to go to Vegas (on a private jet, no less), got to see The Divine Miss M and were served by Zoltan (that really is a fancy name!)!! Oh and BTW - don't you look adorable!
