The Venetian Resort Las Vegas is giving its guests plenty of reasons to celebrate the month of June with tasty bites for Pride Month, Father’s Day and everything in between.
The Venetian Resort was born from love and celebrates inclusivity and love for all— all year long. To recognize the LGBTQIA+ community and honor Pride Month, guests will find an array of treats from cakes to cocktails, special Pride-themed apparel and the resort tower signs will display the colors of the Pride flag on June 1.
BLACK TAP CRAFT BURGERS & BEER
Celebrate Pride all month-long starting June 1 at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer with a Vanilla Rainbow CrazyShake. This must-share-on-Instagram vanilla shake features a vanilla frosted rim covered in Nerds, topped with a rainbow donut from the famous Las Vegas Donut Bar and garnished with a rainbow unicorn pop, sour rainbow gummy rope and whipped cream.

In honor of Pride Month, Bouchon Bakery is bringing back its Rainbow Cake. Pastry chef Nicholas Bonamico created the dessert in honor of the Supreme Court’s legalization of same-sex marriage. The dessert has seven layers of multicolored almond cake with apricot and raspberry jams alternately layered between each color. A rich dark chocolate glaze covers the top and it’s finished with a glimmering luster dust. Bouchon Bakery’s Rainbow Cake is available by the slice or can be pre-ordered as a full cake.
Dessert and rainbows— it’s the only way to celebrate Pride Month. Carlo’s Bakery has crafted six layers of colorful, delicious cake. Each layer is separated by a generous amount of icing – available in vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. Rainbow sprinkles cover the entire outside of the cake for additional pops of color. This can be purchased by the slice or as a 6- or 10-inch cake.

MAJORDŌMO MEAT & FISH
Guests can celebrate National Steak Month any day of the year at Majordōmo Meat & Fish by David Chang with its custom trolleys and tableside steak presentations.
“The prime rib I love because it’s this whole tradition,” said David Chang. “This whole piece being wheeled out, being carved— and you’re just getting something that’s so tender. It has different pockets of flavor.”
The smoked, whole-plate short rib starts with a dry-aged Creekstone prime rib beef that’s cured for 24 hours in savory seasoned salt. Then, it’s smoked for five hours before being carved and plated tableside.
