Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas, NV, United States : SO much fun! Club XS in Las Vegas is packed and the music is pumping and you can dance all night and keep going. It's expensive for drinks so bring your credit or meet a hottie to take you like we did (you can "grease" the bouncer to let you skip the line). The pool has an area to take your shoes off and dance in the water!! We didn't see any celebs but we hear there are always celebs there like the girl from the Bachelor or Paris Hilton or whoever. Dress up and dance!!

Kobe fillet kabob with wasabi is to DIE FOR! At Raku Restaurant Las Vegas there are so many yummy dishes you wont know which to get but you can do their tasting menu for $75. Everybody loved the foie gras but I'm not a fan if you like tofu you'll be in heaven they serve it chilled or not and its so yummy. The location is not the best, but once your inside you wont even notice or care

Las Vegas, NV, United States : I've been to Touch of Las Vegas day spa a couple of times and I recommend it if you don't have the time or money to spend at Qua (the BEST spa ever!) come here and you get a facial, mani/pedi, brazilian or even ear candling which was new to me but was a nice experience

Of all the pools I have been to in Vegas and Ive been to most of them this one at the MGM Pool in Las Vegas is seriously the best! There is not just one pool but several and each is different and has different people and music. Not even mentioning Wet Republic but thats more of a dance club at a pool. The winding river goes all the way around the pool area. The whole pool is huge! I think I saw three areas to get drinks or food and the waitresses come around so you can even order while you are in the water!

Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas, NV, United States : OMG- Gucci, Tiffany&co, Fendi, Cartier, Dior, Salvatore Ferragamo and more more more!! Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is like you are in this cool indoor mall but there is a blue sky above you and statues that move and talk (for real!) and lots of energy. There are some really restaurants but the shopping is the main attraction

Distinctively cool little place in a tiny strip mall. Whining Pig in Scottsdale is a bar covered in shellac'd pennies, chalkboard wine and beer lists covering the walls, tight seating but not so tight we couldn't find two empty stools right at the end of the bar. Jovial server/owner "Greg", a great playlist, and Trivial Pursuit card boxes, plus random Valentine's candies, really made our experience stellar.

Scottsdale, AZ, United States : If you want authentic Japanese fine cuisine that goes beyond mere sushi, Shinbay Scottsdale is one of the best places you'll find. It is a tasting menu with 3, 4, or 5 course meal. Dessert is also provided in addition to the courses. The courses are small so I do recommend the 4 or 5 course. Adventurous food for foodies, however very pricey

The Boulders in Scottsdale is a Waldorf Astoria hotel, but it's not at all like what you would expect. It is primarily a gorgeous golf resort with manicured greens and amazing views. But the spa is the reason I stay here. They drive you around in golf carts so I call and make an apt at the spa and then when I'm ready to go just call the front desk and they send over a driver to drive me through the beautiful grounds to the spa. You can spend all day at the spa and not ever want to leave. The views and the slow pace and the beauty of the grounds all make it peaceful and serene and you stay in a casita or villa so you sort of have your own place and you feel like you live there or wish that you did.

Located in the old railway station, the Chophouse Denver is THE hot spot. There is a cool bar, a great crowd (with lots of hot guys) and the food is so good! And its in LoDo (lower downtown) so it's close to hotels, stadiums and other bars, etc. I love the Lobster Club and the steaks of course but you HAVE to try the chicken tenderloins- YUM YUM

Sable at the Palomar in Chicago is a cool Americana, circa 1940's, bar at the Palomar Hotel. The atmosphere feels like you're in an old Hollywood movie or something. They take their drinks seriously at Sable. Their bartenders are mixologists and take pride in making the best drinks around. Ask for the "Board of Directors" which is no longer on the menu, but you can still order)

Salt Lake City, UT, United States : Salt Lake City, Utah- The Bayou Salt Lake City is a really cool restaurant / bar with over 300 beers and great Cajun inspired food. The Fish and Chips are halibut and are awesome. And you get fries either regular or sweet potato or a platter of both and the fries are excellent and come with this awesome fry-sauce (it's a Utah thing). There is a small patio they open when it's warm and the bar is located on State St and about 6th S so it's right downtown. Across the street is The State Room, which is a concert venue with small acts but some cool ones (we saw English Beat). The Bayou has a really atmosphere and Thu-Sat there is live music and they always have great bands. I highly recommend The Bayou

Salt Lake City, UT, United States : The Stateroom Salt Lake City is a cool concert venue across the street from The Bayou (one of my favorite bars in SLC) and has local bands and also some good name acts (we saw English Beat and Ratt) and has a cool atmosphere. There is a bar and dance floor and the seats are actually church pews that have aligned in a movie theatre-style ascending seating so everyone has a good view. But we just danced so we didn't even sit the whole time.
