Monday Mise en Place: Hash House A Go Go Holding Job Fair For New Location

Hash House A Go Go Logo

Hash House A Go Go Logo

Las Vegas went such a long time with only one Hash House A Go Go location, but now they seem to be popping up like pimples on Montana Fishburne’s ass.  The third location will mercifully take over the Red Cup Café space at the M Resort and is slated to open sometime in October.  They’re looking for a wide range of positions, both front and back of house, and they are holding a job fair in the Molise Room 4 in the M Resort on Tuesday August 17 and Wednesday August 18 from 9am-6pm.  If you’re looking for a gig, make sure you’re prepared for an interview.  Best wishes to all applicants!

Pistachio Summer Fruit Tart from Bachi Burger. Amazing.

Pistachio Summer Fruit Tart from Bachi Burger. Amazing.

Due to overwhelming demand, Bachi Burger is shooting their day off out the window and are re-opening with slightly shorter hours than the rest of the week, 12pm-8pm, on Sundays. (of course they’re keeping their Monday-Saturday hours from 11am-2am) By the way, they’ve got a new limited-time special burger there called the Spicy Miso Burger along with a new item on the dessert menu, a Pistachio Summer Fruit Tart, that will knock your socks off.  I call the Spicy Miso Burger a Four Napkin Burger.  You need three for your face and hands and one for the mess that is sure to be made in your lap after you take your first bite.  The Summer Fruit Tart is easily one of the best desserts I’ve ever had and comes with this Plum Wine Ice Cream that will make you thankful to be alive. They’re good.

Good Food Made Here. Silk Road.

Good Food Made Here. Silk Road.

One of the highest recommendations I give is for people to hit up Chef Martin Heierling’s Silk Road at the Vdara hotel for breakfast.  I just got word in that for a limited time, Silk Road will be offering half priced bottles of champagne along with their fabulous Sunday Brunch. Like we needed another reason to go eat the sensational food, half price bottles of bubbles ain’t that bad!  Remember, it’s only for a limited time, so make sure you call ahead if the deal is going to make or break your visit.

Celebrating the anniversary of Hawaii’s Statehood, First Food and Bar is throwing a full blown Luau on Saturday, August 21st starting at 9pm.  They’ll have all the traditional Hawaiian grub from Kaluha Pork to Spam and will be having drink specials as well.  Anybody that scores a picture of 0 in a grass skirt and coconut bra will be my Hero for Life!

Vote Once Per Day!

Vote Once Per Day!

Speaking of First, thank you so much to all that have already voted and have been promoting my ‘Medium Raw’ contest entry!  We still have a long way to go as I’m over 2,600 votes shy of the top, but I’m still hopeful to make up some ground with us being able to vote once per day from now through 9/30.  I know many of you have posted links on Twitter and Facebook, but I do have to give a special shoutout to two fabulous ladies that have been going above and beyond trying to get the word out, @aka_kristin and @Adeviousone on Twitter.  It seems like everytime I go on Twitter, one of them has put a link up, browbeating their own followers to help me out.  Thank you so much to both of them and thank you so much to everyone for your incredible support!  With your help, we can bang this thing out and take one home for the 702!
