We’ve already mentioned Restaurant Week a few times, and we’ll keep on mentioning it because it’s such an amazing week and benefits such an amazing cause.  Unfortunately, you won’t find much in the shit rag known as the Las Vegas Review-Journal, as they seem to think the importance of Restaurant Week is on par with some 3-course special being done at Viva Mercado.  I urge you, TLV Army, to not only support Restaurant Week and the good folks at Three Square, but to also let the R-J know how shitty their food and beverage coverage is.  It’s an embarrassment and a stain on our fine city.  Let them know it’s about time to get their head out of Sharron Angle’s twat and start covering some stories that actually make our Little  Twinkle in the Desert a better place.

Now that I got that off my chest, I look forward to hanging with all who make it out to the Restaurant Week kickoff event at Wet Republic in the MGM Grand tonight (August 30) from 8pm – midnight!  There are still tickets available for the low low cost of $30.10 and it would be great to see you!  To find out more about the Wet Your Appetite At Wet Republic Event as well links to Restaurant Week menus and such, check out our recent post; Restaurant Week in Las Vegas Approaches, Happy Dance Ensues

Another week goes by and another special launches at Hussong’s Cantina at Mandalay Bay.  This time it’s a combo deal for locals that has $3 get you a taco, a Dos Equis and a Tres Agaves margarita or shot.  This will be a weekly special held every Thursday from 7pm-9pm.  It’s launching this week on September 2nd and it looks like Carrot Top will be on hand.  A hang just isn’t a hang until Carrot Top shows up.

In honor of Robin Leach’s (you can follow Sir Robin on Twitter at @Robin_Leach) birthday yesterday, I’m going to steal a play out of his playbook and let you in on a little Wicked Whisper and Racy Rumor! Is it true that an award winning songwriter is in advanced talks to bring a cuisine that would be totally unique to Las Vegas, further putting us on the map  as a premier destination for world cuisine? Alright…so it’s not so wicked and it’s not so racy….and I already know it’s true….but I don’t know if I can spill the beans on it yet and thought I’d give it a shot.  Guess I’ll leave things of this nature to the master.  More on this groundbreaking restaurant once I see that things are more solidified.

Thanks so much to everyone for your support! You can vote once each day from now through 09/30/10!

Things are going great on the ‘Medium Raw’ Challenge entry front, although I think I need a minor miracle to make it into the Top 10.  Thank you so much to all that have voted and continue to vote once each day, as well as put up links on Facebook and Twitter.  If anybody happens to know Oprah and think she could put out a wee bit of a shout out, that would be groovy.  There’s only one month left that you’ll hearing me beg for votes as voting ends on 09/30/10.  Remember, if I win this thing, the celebration hang will be so epic that even P Diddy would say, “Damn, that was one hell of a hang!”  Keep up those votes!  Thanks!
