Clearly doesn’t stay there. Here are some Thursday things, shared by that one husband of mine.

1. As most of you are aware, I was in Vegas over the weekend attending a wedding for a close friend from work.  I split a room with a co-worker, who I later found out snored like a chainsaw.  It was loud.  It was relentless.  I got approximately 7 ½ minutes of sleep that first night.  And now I completely understand what Jess has been saying for the past 42 odd months.

2. You may also have heard that I have a strong dislike for ricotta cheese.  Always have. So you can understand the great joy it provided my wife’s cousin Lacy, to inform me at a Christmas party that the dish I was enjoying was not pasta drowned in olive oil and mini ice cream scoops of finely grated parmesan cheese, but rather pasta drowned in olive oil and mini ice cream scoops of ricotta cheese.

3. Which brings me to my next point. I was informed that in the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas there is a secret pizza joint.  It’s not advertised anywhere.  So since it was SECRET and PIZZA it was my life’s mission to find it.  And find it I did… smothered in ricotta.

4. I guess I like ricotta now.

5. I was propositioned by a lady of the night on Saturday at approximately 8:00AM, after another sleepless night, as I was finishing up my run outside the Bellagio. Yeah… I’ve still got it.

    “Lady of the night.” Hilarious. I was in Vegas in February and was shocked to see the skeezy folks with the girlie flyers actually hand one to a child. I’m upset that I didn’t know about this secret pizza place.

    LOVE that the Mr. did a post. You two sound similar. I used to hate black olives until I found out tthe tapenade I was devouring at a work Christmas party was full of them. Now I honestly do love them. Oooh, or those homestyle ripe green ones, they are like butter! Anyhow…

    • Mr. How Sweet — April 5th, 2012 @ 8:06 pm

      I’ve been sworn to secrecy!

      But if I were looking for a secret pizza joint I just might take the escalators up to, let’s say, the third floor. Then I might head straight for a hallway that could be lined with old Sinatra and Dean Martin album covers.

      And if there was a secret pizza joint they would probably serve New York style pizza. Which I guess would taste pretty good.

      But you didn’t hear that from me.

    If my brother’s wedding weren’t so small – I’d wonder if Mr. Sweet and I were at the same wedding. It was a great weekend for a Vegas wedding :)

    I want to live at the Wynn. I could not get over how gorgeous that hotel is.

    I never thought I liked ricotta either .. until I ate it without knowing in a restaurant dish. I still don’t love it if it’s a big blob. I also don’t like “raw” cheese (like cubed cheese with crackers) but I like most cheese when it’s melted on pizza or a sandwich. I know, I’m weird.

    Can she be a lady of the night if propositioned you at 8am? Wouldn’t that make her a lady of the awkwardly early morning?

    DUDE! I went to Vegas in November and obsessed about finding the secret pizza place for weeks before our trip. I was so pumped when we found it I did a little happy dance right there in the hallway. That ricotta pizza was so good!

    My husband always says that guys don’t share rooms…maybe it’s because of the snoring!
    I also found it amazing to see kids being handed “lady of the night – or awkward early moening” fliers when we were there!
    It was a few years ago that we went…but I had no idea that there was a secret pizza place…I will keep those secret (I have no idea where I heard them…) directions in mind next time!
    Thanks for these posts, they are wonderful!

    How did you find out about the pizza place??? I loved the Cosmo hotel when we were just in Las Vegas (There are like 200 Vegas pictures all over my blog) but we ate our pizza at New York New York. Sounds like a great trip (minus the rommate)!
