If you can't make it to Vegas you can certainly bring some Vegas with you. You can indulge in a splendid evening at Bellagio's Petrossian Bar with live music from David Osborn, the pianist to the presidents. Osborn has performed at the White House for many residents, including presidents Carter, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama. Guests at Petrossian Bar can relax on one of the velvet couches overlooking the casino while enjoying beautiful music played by Osborn on the one-of-a-kind Steinway Grand. The elegant lounge gently sets the mood for sophisticated tastes and discerning palates. It's designed to be the ultimate meeting place, where guests may choose from an array of offerings -- from afternoon tea to the finest Champagnes, Petrossian caviar and smoked salmon. On the other coast, New York City's 21 Club has been known to host many presidents and please them so much that they've even donated gifts to its "toy" collection. John F. Kennedy donated a model PT-109 (he dined at 21 on the eve of his inauguration) Clinton has donated a model of Air Force One to the collection and held multiple events at the restaurant, including daughter Chelsea's birthday and -- true to his publicized healthy eating (at least his love of vegetables) -- has ordered the Vegetable Tasting. Another president with a healthy choice is Gerald Ford. He ordered chicken salad from the Restaurant Week menu in 1994 and even keeps a private stock (wine) at the restaurant, while Jimmy Carter is a fan of the famous '21' Burger. Here's to dining like a president this holiday. >To submit a news tip, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
