Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast - Episode 02, Chef Lorin Watada of Bachi Burger

This week on Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast, I’m joined with The Wife and she does a fine job of breaking my balls right from the get go!  We talk about some good and not so good eats we’ve had recently, talk about a recent exchange between me and Haute Living’s Susan Stapleton and reveal [...]

The TLV Clips Show: A Look Back On Seven Months of Dick Jokes

It was just a little bit over seven months ago when I was on the hunt for available domain names to find the address where I can set up my house of disgruntled filth and hyperbolic verbosity.  We started at two with Michael also occasionally chiming in, but are now streamlined to have only one [...]

Why Does The Las Vegas Review-Journal Suck?

Often referred to in this very blog as garbage, rubbish and cancer-bearing feces, the Las Vegas Review-Journal is without question the very worst newspaper I have ever laid my eyes upon.  Being born and raised in the asshole of the universe, Northeastern Pennsylvania, even the shit-kicker rag that is The Times Leader puts the R-J [...]

Monday Mise en Place: RM Seafood Re-Opens Upstairs as Chef Andrew Weiss Heads For Battle at Bocuse d'Or USA

Before we dive into the week of food news that lies before us, I need to clear up a question I have been getting from a few of our faithful readers: “What the hell is a Mise en Place?” Mise en Place (pronounced meez ahn plahs) is French for “put in place” and is the [...]

A Brief Response to Two Idiots in New York

Looks like I’m already late to the party to fire back at David Landsel and Andy Wang’s seemingly unresearched display of Manhattanite Superiority Complex Idiocy they wrote for their 3rd Rate Rag (a.k.a. – The New York Post), as Eating Las Vegas’ John Curtas has already brilliantly responded in his blog.  However, with the magnitude [...]
