How to Have a Great Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day Dinner

They’ve done our laundry, made our beds, tucked us in at night, and always made sure that we didn’t go hungry. Show your mom how special she is this Mother’s Day by planning out the whole day full of surprises for her.

Mother’s Day Breakfast

Moms rarely get to sleep in late, so let her sleep in and treat her to breakfast in bed. You can serve up a traditional breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, and pancakes with coffee and orange juice. She’ll love the gesture and enjoy the opportunity to stay in bed. This is also the perfect time to present her with a Mother’s Day card filled with words of your love and gratitude for her.

A Little Bit of Pampering

All moms deserve a little extra tender loving care. Take your mom to get her nails and hair done, get a massage, or for a spa day. She deserves the opportunity to relax and will appreciate being pampered. Most moms don’t get enough self-care, so remind her that she is important and needs to take some time for herself.

Something Fun

After she’s feeling refreshed from her pampering, take mom out for a little bit of fun. This can be shopping, a walk in the park, a movie, or even going to a nice museum. Whatever you think your mom will enjoy. Remember that the day is about her to take her and do something she’ll love.

There are plenty of options to choose from in Downtown Las Vegas. The Container Park is a great destination for shopping and walking around. You can check out The Mob Museum or the Neon Museum to take in the history of Las Vegas. If your mom enjoys the pool, take her to the rooftop pool at The Plaza for some fun in the sun.

Mother’s Day Dinner

Give back to your mom this Mother’s Day by treating her to a lovely night out with some delicious food. Every mother knows that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, which is why we’re serving up a special Mother’s Day dinner at Oscar’s Steakhouse at the Plaza Hotel & Casino.

Say “thank you” to mom by taking her out for a delightful meal surrounded by the people she loves the most. Moms are always cooking up wonderful meals for family and friends, but on Mother’s Day, you can tell her that we’ll handle the cooking at Oscar’s.

We’ve put together a special menu with a luxurious meal just for mom. The meal starts with her choice of Tomato and Burrata salad or Truffle Risotto and for the entrée special she’ll be served Crispy Branzino.

No matter how you end up celebrating the day, remember to give mom your love and remind her that you’re thankful for all she’s done for you.

D*Face Unveils Latest Las Vegas Downtown Art

If you look on the side of the Plaza Hotel & Casino, you may see something that looks like it was pulled from a horror or suspense comic book. Dface in las vegas The latest piece of art to join the Downtown Las Vegas area is a large mural created by D*Face, an English multimedia street artist known for his sold-out galleries and collaboration with the world’s top music artists. His style can be considered a modern twist on retro comics and skeletons are a frequent staple of his work. D*Face’s latest masterpiece is his tallest and widest mural ever created. Overlooking the pool deck of the Plaza Hotel & Casino, D*Face created a chilling scene reminiscent of old horror comics with a retro feel. The mural, lacking any captions or words, encourages viewers to interpret the scene, which includes a frightened young blonde woman with big blue eyes, a menacing skeletal hand, and a slowly opening door. The artwork stretches across three different parts of the Plaza Hotel & Casino, creating a depth effect for viewers. Completing the mural was a challenge that D*Face relished. It pushed him to overcome his fear of heights and work within the uneven architecture of the Plaza Hotel to create something unique. D*Face was lifted on a platform with a rope pull system to finish the mural. D*Face masterfully used the architecture and placement of the mural to create shadows that extend the boundaries of the mural and transform it from a two-dimensional piece of art to a surreal 3-D mural that comes alive as the sun sets.
D*Face’s mural joins Shepard Fairey’s colossal mural on the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Downtown Las Vegas.
