Tuesday I took Cardgrrl out for a lovely birthday dinner at Tao Bistro at the Venetian, followed by a stroll down to the Bellagio to get dessert at her favorite gelato/pastry shop, Jean-Phillippe (the place with the famous chocolate fountain). The pastries were just too beautiful not to document. She had the key lime one. I just had a small cup of berry sorbet, which was delicious. We ate them while watching a couple of the dancing fountain shows.
Incidentally, if you've ever wondered how high the water shoots in the most powerful of the central jets, you might have a hard time finding the answer online. Incorrect information is given in several places. The real answer--or as close to a real answer as it seems possible to find (we know because we disagreed on our estimates, and spent some time looking it up)--is "over 240 feet," as declared by the firm that designed the fountains, here.
