Weekend Getaway: The World's Most Famous Chefs Host A 4 Day Vegas Feast!

With Memorial Day so close we can feel it, you might think this is the time to cleanse, not chow. We'd agree, until we heard about Vegas Uncork'd by Bon Appétit, a four day culinary bonanza in the City of Sin that features enough eating events for Augustus Gloop—if he happened to be a food snob. Think intime luncheons, tasting, dinners, deserts, even blackjack, all with culinary creations prepared by some of the world's most acclaimed chefs. They're not messing around—the roster this year includes Alain Ducasse, Tom Colicchio, Francois Payard, Joël Robuchon, Guy Savoy, and Nobu Matsuhisa. If you're not already in a contact food coma, we're suggesting this as a perfect last minute vacay—just 55 minutes away by air—that's less The Hangover, more Julie & Julia (and kind of the coolest Mother's Day brunch ever). It all kicks off Friday night at the Garden of the Gods Grand Tasting (set among eight pools!) at Caesars Palace, with offerings from more than 50 award-winning chefs and sommeliers. Actually, maybe you will have a tiny hangover....
