Just about everyone has visited Sugar Factory at Paris Las Vegas. The food and cocktails are great, and the sweets are even better.

The next time you stop by, look up. The Paris has some incredibly detailed statues on its facade, including one that seems especially appropriate in a spot up above the Sugar Factory.

Suger

Told you it would be useless.

No, that’s not a typo, it’s just an odd coincidence. This statue is that of Suger, a French abbot who was instrumental in the development of the Gothic style of architecture. More here.

Apparently, being a French abbot didn’t pay particularly well, because Suger could only afford one name, but he was nevertheless an important historical figure, now immortalized at Paris Las Vegas.

Bonus Suger trivia: Suger’s closest friend in school later became King Louis VI. It’s good to know people in high places.

So, the next time you’re strolling The Strip with your Sugar Factory Couture Pop, look up and give a lick in honor of Suger. Because now you know somebody in a high place, too.
