Monday...err...Tuesday Mise en Place: Tasting Las Vegas Has Returned!

From Highway 1 in California

From Highway 1 in California

What’s good, everybody?  Did you miss us?  Did you even know we were gone?  The Wife and I are back in Vegas from a much needed vacation, the first one we’ve taken in well over three years!  We did a road trip through the Great State of California where we first went to Sequoia National Park, then one of my favorite places on Earth, San Francisco, then up to Yountville for our 5th Anniversary (can you believe it?) and finally making our way down the coast to Santa Barbara.  We drove a total of 1,559.1 miles and ate at (I think) 27 different restaurants / food stands / places where calories are consumed.  Much more about our epic journey through the Golden State to be posted this week…

Las Vegas' Restaurant Week Benefits Three Square! Yay!

Las Vegas' Restaurant Week Benefits Three Square! Yay!

Get your fat pants on deck as one of the best weeks of the year, Restaurant Week, rapidly approaches with it falling on August 30 – September 5 this year!  Over 80 restaurants in town will participate with special menus they create for $20.10, $30.10 or $50.10, a portion of each of the proceeds will directly benefit the our favorite charity, Three Square.  As we get closer to the August 30th start date, the participating restaurants will be putting out their special menus and we’ll certainly pass along the details once we have them.

For those of us interested in shortening our life spans with grotesque food challenges (Dobranski Burger, anyone?), Emily’s Cafe in the Club Fortune Casino located in old school Henderson now has a Colossus Burger Challenge. If you alone eat the 12-pattied monstrosity in 20 minutes or less, you get the $19.99 burger for free, get your picture on the wall and get a t-shirt.  Eat it after the 20 minutes, you still get the shirt.  Due to fear of The Wife’s Wrath, I will not be attempting it, but I sure as hell would like to see someone try!  Let me know if you’re going down!
