Absolutely one of the most amazing parts of going to Vegas was seeing Yelena! She was coaching the Stanford B team. Here she is deliberating with the other coach, strategerizing and scheming about how they would win the whole tournament (yes, she's wearing Christmas colors):
The second most amazing thing about Vegas also had to do with Yelena. On Saturday night she, Jenny, Bryan, Liver and I went to the seafood buffet in the Rio. It was one of the most gluttenous experiences I've ever had. There was mini lobster tails, crab legs (both hot and cold), shrimp, sushi, different cuts of meat, oysters, and the most amazing dessert bar ever, complete with a gelato wheel-of-fortune thing. An attendant presses a button to spin the wheel of gelato and your flavor of choice stops in front of her; she scoops out a generous portion of gelato-y goodness into a cute plastic cup and gives it to you. Personally I think it would've been much more fun if we could've done it ourselves, but people would've probably broken it.
Here's some of my desserts: chocolate cake/mousse thing, creme brulee, and hazelnut gelato.
