Members of the U.S. Olympic Women’s Water Polo team including KK Clark, Sami Hill, Ashleigh Johnson, Melissa Seidemann and Maggie Steffens headed to Las Vegas over the weekend to celebrate their gold medal at the Rio Olympics.
The group spent their Saturday at Tao Beach at the Venetian on Saturday afternoon. The Tao staff treated the team to a patriotic presentation at their daybed as DJ Cool Whip and DJ Big Ben manned the decks for SKAM Saturday.
On Friday night, six members of the 2016 Olympic gold medal winning USA women’s water polo team dined at N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms. Ashleigh Johnson, Maggie Steffens, Kaleigh Gilchrist, KK Clark and Sami Hill ordered up Kobe beef stew spoons, chilled shellfish, crispy lobster pot stickers, sautéed Shetland Islands salmon and summer vegetables with a lemon vinaigrette.
After their dinner, the group got an exclusive VIP tour of the restaurant and kitchen led by executive chef Barry Dakake. During the tour, the Olympians met president and CEO of the Palms Todd Greenburg, and signed chef Dakake’s famous celebrity shakedown door.
Maggie Steffans showed off their signatures on Instagram, writing: “Legendary dinner. Legendary chefs. Legendary athletes. Legendary door. Thanks @palmscasinoresort for everything! #joiningtheparty #polopartyatthepalms.”
