Actress and model Mena Suvari and fiancé Simone Sestito spent last weekend at The Palazzo Las Vegas. The blushing engaged couple checked-into their luxurious Siena Suite Friday and then dined at TAO Asian Bistro at The Venetian with friends.
On Saturday, not even intermittant rain showers and high winds could keep the happy couple away from Absolut Saturday at AZURE pool at The Palazzo. After getting her hair styled at Canyon Ranch SpaClub Mena, absolutely glowing in a green flowing sundress, complete with dazzling engagement ring and Simone made their way to their cabana poolside. Very much in love, the couple giggled, kissed and relaxed with friends while sipping Absolut cocktails and lunch by Wolfgang Puck at Azure. Mena then revealed her Perfect 10 figure in a matching green and white bikini, all the while sharing smiles and stolen romantic moments with Simone.

How time zooms by at warp speed when you’re passionate in what you do and have a never say die attitude. Success is the tasty fruit of victory. Just ask Sally Steele, publisher for VEGAS ROCKS! magazine. Fighting the grasp of corporate Las Vegas biggies that apparently enjoy swooping in for the media kills and “friends” that say she couldn’t pull it off, Steele has squashed her detractors and beaten all odds and is now celebrating five years in business in Las Vegas. Way to go, Sally!
The once jilted bride and single mother, with no prior experience in publishing, made bank for her and her children by driving limousines in the wee hours and backstreets of Vegas. But, during it all, the dream and passion of publishing a Las Vegas rock n’ roll music magazine remained uppermost in her mind and actions.
Celebrating her achievement while recognizing those many supporters and true friends who have steadfastly believed in her and given so much, Steele is having a blow-out fifth anniversary rock n’ roll party like no other on August 29. The best rockers will be on hand to wish her well. You’re invited to come out and join in on all the fun and great music.
