My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it. I’m holding on to the actual memories I had with my mom the letter has been given to my brother to do wh

Carniveno - Restaurant by Mario Batalli

Carnevino is in the Venetian in Vegas. We were actually on our way out going to another hotel restaurant but were hungry and checked out the menu and decided to stay. I am so glad we did. First the host asks about any dietary restrictions told her we were vegetarian and she put it in the computer. The server came over to explain the menu first thing he suggested we try the meat special so the message about vegetarian didn't get to him. Once I told him he explained every vegetarian item on the menu. The menu is organized in sections salad, pasta, meats, and you get sides for veggies. He said the pasta was the side of a bread plate. When I asked about the ravioli he said it was just one ravioli and swayed me away from it. So I went with a pasta made with mint and eggplant, and order the crispy cauliflower on the side. My companion ordered a cream pasta and a side of fries. They also had an extensive wine list ranging up to 30K in price. My companion liked her cheaper glass of wine. I asked them for a virgin cocktail and to surprise me they did. I don't know what was in it but I really liked it, it tasted like there was homemade ginerale in it. After ordering I went to the bathroom so another person gave me a tour with directions on how to get to the bathroom past the wine room which was amazing then past the banquet room.I came back my companion said i was breathless I was in awe on how beautiful that room was. The restaurant was nice but that room was something else. They had brought fried balls to the table I think they were cheese, and I think bread as well I don't remember but I remember the butter being really good. The service was fast then the food came the pasta was a huge bowl of pasta like a dinner size not the bread plate size the server had suggested I forgot I was in america with their huge portions.  The pasta was good lots of fresh veggies in mine. The sides were another huge portion the cauliflower was lemony but it was something that since I was stuffed I didn't eat much of, the fries were also more roasted potatoes so weren't eaten either. We decided it was our last night there so to end with tiramisu for dessert that was also very good. What I noticed about this restaurant was there is equal attentiveness to service and food which is so rare that the combination of both is achieved successfully. I was expecting the bill to be quite high considering how much we ate and how luxurious the atmosphere was but the bill was roughly $100 which for dinner in Vegas for the amount of food we ate was actually a good deal. This is my new favourite restaurant in Vegas and really love that all though the name is Carnevino I am a non meat eating non wine drinking person and still love it.
