On May 10, 2009, Scott Frost, owner of Hussong’s Cantina at Mandalay Bay, was in a tragic accident, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down.  Tonight, May 17, 2010, Frost is launching the Spinal Injury Recovery Foundation along with a new drink called “El Gigante” (Frost’s nickname) of which part of the proceeds from each “El Gigante” sold at Hussong’s will go to benefit the new Spinal Injury Recovery Foundation.  ”El Gigante” is made from Reposado tequila, Grilled Ruby Red Grapefruit, Ginger and Lemongrass.

Another major milestone has been reached with our little bubble gum and duct tape operation here at TastingLasVegas.com, and it comes through a visitor from North Dakota.  Why a visitor from North Dakota you ask?  Well for about two months, North Dakota was the single hold out of a United State not represented by a visitor to TastingLasVegas.com.  Over the weekend, a person from the Bismarck area checked us out, now giving us the authority to say we have readers that span from North Dakota to North Africa! We are so honored to have visitors from all 50 states and 6 of 7 continents (Antarctica is still holding out) and there is no way it would happen without the incredible support of our readers here and friends on Facebook and Twitter.  Thank you to all for helping us get the word out and extending our family worldwide!
