The Epicurean Affair 2009

The annual Epicurean Affair is always held at the Flamingo pool. If you've never seen the Flamingo pool, you should. It's a fantastic area, with lots of waterfalls and paths that take you to another, more secluded pool. It's extremely lush and beautiful. If you're looking to visit Vegas on a budget- stay at the Flamingo. The pool alone is worth it.

I could probably leave the blog at just this one picture.....check out these hot-ass women! I swear it's tough for a normal girl like me to walk around with women who look like this. It does some major damage to my ego- ouch! Seriously, it's hard to imagine that there's REAL women who actually look like this. Life is so unfair!

However, they were very kind and friendly, so I'll be nice and tell them thanks for their hospitality!

And then I might call them skinny bitches behind their backs....

This year's Epicurean was definitely a toned-down version of last year's, but that didn't make it any less fun or yummy. Here's the grand entrance. Pretty and pink, aye? They had these unusual chandeliers that hung from the pink towers that sparkled when they caught the colored spotlights. Very cool.

Do you see what I mean about the pool? This is the second pool towards the back...
Luckily, everyone was ready to have their picture taken. Unlike last year, when I actually had a girl (who was wearing ONLY pasties and a thong) tell me she didn't want her picture taken. Girl, please. You're walking around totally fucking naked at a food event. I'm going to take your picture anyway......
I'm really nice, aren't I?
But this year, every girl I turned my camera to was polite and friendly, and actually gave me eye contact. Thank you, devil lady!
Oyster shots.....mmmmmm.

They had desserts of every kind, every flavor. Not only that but each one was beautiful- like food art.
My favorite dish at the event? The scallop plate from Marche Bacchus. Oh...mah......gawd. it was the BEST scallop I've ever had. Yum. I've heard amazing things about the restaurant but I've never been...yet. I think I will make the hubs take me for my birthday next month.

The New Belgium brewing company was there. Did you know that Fat Tire is my favorite beer of all time? It's Colorado-based brewery. I could drink it every day if it didn't turn me into an alcoholic and make my ass fat.
I learned at the Epicurean that they now have Fat Tire in a CAN. This is big news, people! Here's my hubby's lovely skills at displaying it for me....he could be a Price Is Right girl!

It was so much fun to be able to take a bite of something and then move onto something else. So many flavors all in one place.

My husband wasn't feeling very well, so we didn't stay very late. But I snapped a picture just as the pink Flamingo lights were turning on. We had a fantastic time- The Epicurean is most definitely my favorite date night of the entire year!

I used to live in Vegas - it is sin at its best! Food, liquer, and a dazzling feast for the eyes.

Wow! What a beautiful event! I wish I was there with u. I did a series of pool reviews and I never had a chance to do the Flamingo. Obviously I was missing out. I"m going to check it out this summer for sure.

Why do women have to flaunt their bodies like that? What about us frumpy women?

Looks like a great date night.
