One nice thing about staying at the reasonably-priced Bally’s is that it is connected to the more-expensive Paris Hotel.
This beautiful glass ceiling is above the walkway connecting the two hotels.
I took a picture of this Italian restaurant in the Paris Hotel because D ate at this restaurant when he was on his business trip. I had never heard of this chain before. It is known for its meatballs.
We mad breakfast the biggest meal of our day, which is what you are supposed to do when you run a race at night. We ate at Mon Ami Gabi, which has a lovely patio right on the Strip in front of the Paris Hotel, across the street from the Bellagio. There were heat lamps, so we ate outside.
We had the croque madame and bananas foster waffle (with fresh whipped cream not pictured). We thoroughly enjoyed our food, and it was just nice to be outside and soak in the atmosphere.
Afterward, we took a stroll across the street to check out the Bellagio. It is always fun to see the seasonal decorations.
We also stopped to look at the Jean Philippe Patisserie.
The multi-tiered chocolate fountain was mesmerizing.
The desserts were works of art!
There was a long line of people wrapping around the store, which I joined like a lemming. However, after waiting for around fifteen minutes (and not moving very much), I realized that there was not a certain thing that I “had to” get, not to mention the fact that we had just finished a large breakfast. So, we left without buying anything, but it was still fun to look!
