Look! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No…it’s a pancake the size of Mars! And yes, you will be able to get that planetary-sized pancake at the M Resort as of October 7th when Hash House A Go Go officially opens its third Las Vegas location.  Sunday – Thursday the Hash House M Resort location will be open from 7am-11pm, and on Friday and Saturday they will sport some late night hours and be open from 7am-2am.  With the M’s 32 Bar packed with all sorts of beer on tap, this will prove to be a very fun, possibly dangerous combination.  Oh, and speaking of big ass pancakes, The M Resort location will have a special M&M Pancake just for it.  M&M Pancake at the M.  Get it?

Good Times Guaranteed At the Naked City Pizza Shop!

Good Times Guaranteed At the Naked City Pizza Shop!

Starting this Tuesday, October 5th, there will be a weekly hang geared towards Las Vegas’ restaurant industry folks at the Naked City Pizza Shop!  There will be food, drink and shot specials.  The hang starts at midnight and the kitchen will stay open until at least 3am!  A hang that starts at midnight on a Tuesday (technically Wednesday…let’s say the hang starts at 11:59pm on Tuesday so there’s no confusion)….I love Las Vegas.  And I love the Naked City Pizza Shop.  Remember, the NCPS is located inside Moon Doggies Bar on the corner of Desert Inn and Arville.

Tis the season for ethnic festivals and now the Lebanese are having their turn with The 3rd Annual Lebanese American Festival hosted by the St. Sharbel Maronite Catholic Mission from Friday, October 8th - Sunday, October 10th.  All of the food is made from scratch by real live Lebanese people.  Apparently one family is making 1,500 kibbe balls.  That’s a lot of balls.  The St. Sharbel Mission is located at 10325 Rancho Destino Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89183. For more information you can call (702) 616-6902 or visit www.lebaneseamericanfestivallasvegas.org.

It’s not this week, but just a heads up, on October 17th, RM Seafood is hosting one hell of a sick dinner to benefit the Jean-Louis Palladin Fund for the James Beard Foundation.  The whole menu will be cooked from Palladin’s book, “Cooking With The Seasons.” Here’s who’s cooking the food:  Rick Moonen, Adam Sobel and Gerald Chin (Rick Moonen’s rm seafood), André Rochat and Gary LaMorte (André’s and Alizé), Mark Hopper (Bouchon), Luciano Pellegrino (Valentino), Vincent Pouessel (Aureole), Barry Dakake and Geno Bernardo (N9NE/Nove), David Werly (Le Cirque), Martin Heierling (Sensi/Silk Road), Hugo Coudurier (Restaurant Guy Savoy), Jean Joho and Joung Sohn (Eiffel Tower Restaurant), Michael and Wendy Jordan (Rosemary’s) with desserts by Megan Romano (Aureole) and Michelle Lee (Rick Moonen’s rm seafood) and wines provided by Wirtz Beverage.   That’s pretty sick.  Tickets for this amazing event roll for $295 a person.  For more info about the Palladin Fund for the James Beard Foundation, visit http://www.jamesbeard.org/index.php?q=education_jlp_about. For more info about this extraordinary dinner call RM Seafood at (702) 632-9300 and ask about the Palladin Dinner.

The Other Good Part About Football (photo: whitemeat.wordpress.com)

I don’t really give a shit about football, but I’m sure glad for the specials it brings to just about every restaurant with a TV and a barstool.  RM Seafood is sporting some nifty specials, such as; select half-priced sushi rolls, $5 Stella Artois and Asahi Drafts and a $12 RM Burger special which I have now had three weeks in a row and I can’t get enough of it.  Easily one of the best burgers in town…yes…at RM Seafood.  Also rolling with footyball specials is Rao’s at Caesars Palace.  Rao’s is doing something cool where they are taking some of their classics on the menu and transforming them to tailgating food.  Uncle Vincent’s Lemon Chicken Wings, Meatball Hoagies and a Flatbread Steak Melt to name a few.  Also joining in on the fun is the Vin Bar and Lounge at Valentino’s in the Venetian.  They’re putting together antipasto platters of all sorts of charcuterie, salumis and cheeses.  Also, there are crudo platters where you can choose from a number of raw items like Blood Orange Lobster Tail or Green Apple Scallops. For the crudo plates, you can either order a la carte or have your choice of three for $12 or six for $24.

A New Low In The History Of Eating Out

A New Low In The History Of Eating Out

Hopefully with the technology gods at our side, the very first Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast will be online and ready for your enjoyment sometime in the afternoon on Wednesday, October 6th! Yes, I have polluted your eyes enough with this mess…now it’s time to get to work on the ears!  Joining me on this momentous occasion will be Michael Manley (remember him?) and, of course, The Wife! I’m also very excited to announce that that very first interview was with the one, the only, the fighter and the lover….Executive Chef of Wazuzu, Jet Tila! Jet has had, and continues to have, an extraordinary amount of shit going on, so we had plenty to talk about.  We covered everything from Schwan’s to Wynn rolling vegan-style to cooking for James Beard’s groupies to his thoughts on Vegas in general.  Good times were had, you’re not going to want to miss this one!  Make sure you also follow The Official Twitter of Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast at @TLV_ThePodcast!
