Team USA Olympic gold medal goalie Hope Solo had a book signing at Sugar Factory in the Paris on Friday afternoon for her recently published autobiography “Solo: A Memoir of Hope.”
The two-time Olympian and former “Dancing With the Stars” competitor graciously posed for photographs and signed books, posters and soccer memorabilia for fans.
Post-book signing, Solo shopped for apparel and received her sugar rush sipping on a Very Berry Blast milkshake and trying Sugar Factory’s signature banana split sundae. Solo was dressed casually in a white T-shirt, jeans and heals, and ex-teammate Tina Ellertson and friends joined her.
Sugar Factory has four locations in Las Vegas: the Mirage, its flagship at the Paris, Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and its newest location at MGM Grand. Thanks to David Becker of WireImage for his photo gallery of the Olympic champion.

Paris Las Vegas The Paris Las Vegas transports visitors to the City of Light. Paris Las Vegas captures all the details of Paris, right down to the cobblestone sidewalks and half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Wrought iron street lamps line the 85,000 square foot casino with the legs of the Eiffel Tower sit in the middle of 1,700 slots and 90 table games.
Guests can dine at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, but beware, it's by reservation only. Diners can watch the world pass by at Mon Ami Gabi, a fine French restaurant where the most popular tables are the ones outside facing The Strip. Dining isn't just limited to the French, Asian restaurant Ah Sin is host to many dishes from the Pacific Rim. If you've just hit the jackpot on the casino floor, try the $777 Kobe beef and Maine lobster at Le Burger Brasserie.
Famous pastry chef Gaston Lenôtre opened a branch of his renowned pastry shop on the cobblestone-lined Le Boulevard, a street filled with intimate shops and restaurants, all underneath a blue cloud-filled ceiling. Strolling along Le Boulevard don't be surprised to see an extremely lifelike bronze statue move, that's because it's a real person
The City of Light doesn't go dark after dark. Anthony Cools - The Uncensored Hypnotist checks inhibitions at the door and pushes the limits of the audiences mind and body. Sitting right above the restaurant is nightclub Risqué, Paris' ultra lounge that is as fun as it is fantastic.
