Faye Day two in Vegas

Last week I was in Las Vegas for the Summer Journalist Immersion Tour, hosted by and R&R Partners. I already gave you the rundown of how day one went. But, just like many trips to Las Vegas go, after the first day, the rest becomes kind of a blur. I was having way too much fun to be in my hotel room behind a computer screen, but I’d be happy to fill you in on all the action now.


After mingling with the bunnies at the Playboy Club on the first night, I woke up excited for another full day of Vegas fun. I needed some grub, so I was happy the first stop on the day’s tour was Wazuzu at Encore, a trendy pan-Asian restaurant headed by Chef Jet Tila. In the restaurant’s bright red dining room, there was a large dragon on the wall made out of 90,000 real crystals. It gave me something to admire as I spent all of lunch sampling Wazuzu’s different dishes, like their “drunken” noodles, teriyaki beef bowl, and yellowtail sashimi. We topped off the meal with a delicious shot of Moonstone Coconut Lemongrass Sake, which had yummy notes of coconut and bubblegum. And here I thought sake only came in one flavor!

Wynn Spa

Finished with lunch, we walked across Encore’s expansive lobby and up to the second floor to have massages at the Wynn Spa. I was booked for an 80-minute Thai deep tissue massage, which includes a series of stretches to relax the muscles. The spa itself was very ornate and felt like a secluded sanctuary – a huge, welcoming Buddha rested at the end of the long hallway as I entered the massage rooms. Devin, my massage therapist, made me feel really comfortable and relaxed. I thought I’d be unnerved by the fact that it was my first time having a male massage therapist (“His hands will be all over me!”), but I actually felt very at ease, and was able to completely sink in to the massage table as my stress floated away.

I came out of my treatment feeling lightheaded yet heavy with relaxation. I took a refreshing shower in the Wynn Spa’s showers, then headed back to the Hard Rock Hotel to get ready for a night out on the town.
