Restaurant Week in Las Vegas Approaches, Happy Dance Ensues

One of the greatest weeks of the year we have in Las Vegas will be taking place between August 30 through September 5; Restaurant Week! I think only behind the week the Porn Convention is in town, Restaurant Week features over 80 of the finest restaurants our Little Twinkle in the Desert offers, each preparing a special three-course meal with a portion of the proceeds benefiting our favorite charity, Three Square.  Learn more about Three Square by checking out our post back when Vegas Uncork’d was rolling along.

There are three different price levels for the three course meals, $20.10, $30.10 and $50.10, with each restaurant donating $4, $5 and $6 of that price, respectively, to Three Square.  Three Square says only $1 in donation pays for three meals for people in need, so think about the impact we can all have by eating some magnificent food while supporting an outstanding charity!

Kicking off Restaurant Week will be “Wet Your Appetite At Wet Republic”. From 8pm to midnight on August 30th in Wet Republic at the MGM Grand there will be a blowout party kicking off Restaurant Week that will feature Chef Hubert Keller manning the DJ booth for a bit and a whole slew of entertainment that spans from synchronized swimmers to Recycled Percussion.  There will also be complimentary food and drink provided until 10pm from several of the MGM Resorts restaurants participating in Restaurant Week such as; Joël Robuchon, Craftsteak, Fiamma, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, Jean Georges Steakhouse, Sage, Burger Bar, Fleur de Lys, Sensi, Osteria del Circo and Todd English’s Olives.  Tickets for the Wet Republic event can be purchased for $30.10.

    This is MY Porn convention! I will be trying a couple places including First and possibly Aureole. Maybe even the kickoff party. Where will YOU be eating Mr. Tasting?

  • Seriously, this is my porn convention, too! It’s so tough to pick. I don’t know….Sensi, Eiffel Tower, Rao’s, Stratta, Bradley Ogden, BOA, MOzen Bistro, Lemongrass and a few others are prime targets. Oops…that’s already more restaurants than days. I don’t know…I think I’m in trouble. I’d like to go to places I normally don’t go to and try new things.
