Mother’s Day Ala Las Vegas Style

There are some holidays that go hand-in-hand with the fabulous glitz and glitter that is Las Vegas.  New Years Eve, any three-day weekend, any day that let’s you blow off fireworks from the top of the parking garages, just to name a few.  But there’s one day that may not be what you consider a natural fit with the Las Vegas economy – and it really, truly, is the most natural of all holiday destination matches – Mother’s Day in Las Vegas. mothersday

Looking to give Mom a few days off the clock?  Perhaps a room with a (Strip) view, room service and sunshine by the pool may give her the chance to dial down the stress and forget her carpool duties for a while. 

Want to spoil Mom and give her a pamper-by-numbers opportunity?  How about a luxury suite at the Trump Hotel along with the Mother’s Day Spa Package at The Spa at Trump?  This package includes a facial, pedicure and spa robe for $179.  

But if you would like your mom’s spa day to do more than celebrate your special lady – how about the Trump Gold Package?  Donate $25 or more to the American Heart Association (via the Trump Hotel) and receive a Gold Body Scrub, Gold Facial, Trump Massage and Gold Bar Box Set for $189. 

Restaurants in Las Vegas will be offering many unique luncheon and dining opportunities that will work for any budget.  

At $50 or more per person, the Paris Hotel and Casino’s premier restaurant, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, will offer open early on Sunday, May 10 for a Mother’s Day lunch brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Reservations required. 

Or for a few dollars less, about $35 per person (special pricing for children), ENVY the Steakhouse at the Renaissance Las Vegas will also offer a brunch for Mom’s on May 10 complete with mimosa’s and Wes Winters at the piano. 

With options ranging from Rumjungle to Pamplemousse, it will be possible to wine and dine Mom regardless of what type of meal she may be interested in and the budget available for the celebration. 

So give Mom a chance to break away from the every day routine and have a very grand Vegas Mother’s Day.

The Shade Tree’s Pre-Mother’s Day Walk to Aid Las Vegas Homeless

Las Vegas is not known for its universal kind, caring and compassionate ways in dealing with its growing homeless population.  Quite the contrary.  So, anytime there is a local fundraising event that helps, Las Vegas Backstage Access likes to lend a helping hand.  

This Saturday, May 9, when The Shade Tree will host a pre-Mother’s Day Walk of Hope to raise funds for their downtown shelter for homeless women and children. 

Proceeds go to The Shade Tree, which provides shelter, food and clothing to more than 3,000 homeless women and 1,000 homeless children each year. 

The “family fun walk” will begin at 9 a.m. at Children’s Memorial Park, 6601 W. Gowan Road, near Rainbow Boulevard in Las Vegas. 

Registration is $25 for adults and $15 for children under 12.  For more information and to register, please visit http://www.TheShadeTree.org
