Starting today (June 28th), Hussong’s Cantina is starting a 20% off deal on food for Las Vegas area locals!  Kicking off the discount will be none other than Mayor Oscar Goodman at 5pm as he gets his charcoal portrait hoisted among the likes of the venerable Norm Clarke.  Also for both tourists and locals, Hussong’s will be having a happy hour Sundays – Fridays from 4pm-7pm featuring 2-for-1 draft beers and original margaritas.  The 20% food discount for locals, however, is all day everyday (although only for parties of less than 6).  Check out Hussong’s Cantina at the Mandalay Place Shoppes in the Mandalay Bay resort.  Don’t let the T.G.I. McBullshit-style explosion of kitsch all over the walls give you the wrong first impression as it did me.  The food and drink here are muy tasty.

Speaking of tasty Mexican food, Dos Caminos at the Palazzo resort is going to be having a special Pig Roast Buffet on July 4th.  From 11am-7pm, Dos Caminos will celebrate our nation’s independence the way it should be celebrated…with all-you-can-eat roasted pig!  The buffet will feature the aforementioned piggy along with Jumbo Shrimp Fajitas, Skirt Steak, BBQ Chicken, Turkey Burger Sliders with Mole Poblano and a whole host of side items.  Cost is $30 for adults and $12.95 for kiddies under 12 (tax and tip not included).

I was sad to not be able to attend, but I’m happy to report that last week’s guest dinner at RM Seafood with Top Chef Masters winner, Marcus Samuelsson, was a big success.  All in all, the event raised $15,000 for local charity Three Square, which comes out to be 45,000 meals! Congratulations to Chef Rick Moonen and Chef Marcus Samuelsson on a job well done.

Retro Bakery

Retro Bakery

We mentioned this last week, but congratulations again to our Champions of Buttercream, Kari and Brian Haskell of Retro Bakery, for their gig on baking up some cupcakes for the CBS After Party of yesterday’s Daytime Emmy Awards.  Retro Bakery is now on a much-deserved summer vacay and will be back to the business of making our asses bigger on July 8th.
