This past weekend, Rose. Rabbit. Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas debuted a new chapter of amusement with the launch of Breakfast at Piffany’s.
The inaugural evening kicked off on Wednesday, April 30. As midnight approached, an intimate crowd converged inside the Study at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. where attendees were greeted by the hosts of this late night affair – Piff the Magic Dragon and his Chihuahua sidekick Mr. Piffles.
As the night’s emcee, Piff thrusts his guests into a mystical world of hilarious trivia and tableside magic topped with an expert sleight of hand. The duo both dazzled and harmlessly harassed guests with astounding illusions and competitions for points and prizes. Everyone is encouraged to participate and dine on the special late night dragon fare. Concluding this evening of mayhem is a boisterous live auction that unfolds as guests bid for a delectable croissant, with all proceeds benefitting Communities In Schools of Nevada (www.cisnevada.org), which ended up being sold for $1,300. All those who win the mouth-watering flaky treat join the exclusive Croissant Consortium, with the highest all-time bidder having their photo framed and placed on the shelves of the Study.
In all, a total of $4,490 was raised from nightly auctions for the croissant during the grand opening weekend of Breakfast at Piffany’s. On Friday, May 2 comedian Brad Garrett along with a second guest split the coveted pastry with a combined winning bid of $1,400, but not until a man from Garrett’s team and a dainty woman with deceptively dexterous digits from another team attempted a thumb war for the top spot. The following evening, Las Vegas Sun and Vegas Deluxe columnist / television personality Robin Leach, Communities In Schools of Nevada Board President Susie Lee, CEO of Palms Casino Resort Dan Lee, and Ellis and Yvette Landau all split the prize with a combined bid of $1,750 – the highest raised thus far.
Breakfast at Piffany’s is a complimentary experience taking place every Wednesday – Saturday from midnight until 1 a.m. in the Study at Rose. Rabbit. Lie., and is available by reservation only. Delicacies such as Piff’s Special Biscuits, Princess Bait, The Chalice of Chocolate Milk and other edibles and refreshments are available for purchase. All proceeds raised during each night’s croissant auction will be donated to Communities In Schools of Nevada.
