The best part about Halloween is that now you can dress like a slut in Las Vegas and actually get discounted food and drink because of it!  At what point Halloween turned into an excuse for women to wear skin tight leather and squeeze their tits out of the top of their shirt, I have no idea…but who am I to question the Great Wonders Of The World?  There are some specials happening throughout the valley during this holiday once reserved for children begging for candy with a plastic Superman mask on their face, one of which is at Tabú Ultra Lounge in the MGM Grand. Three cocktails tailor made for the the Halloween spirit will be featured; the Black Widow with Black Cherry Effen Vodka, lime juice and Chambord, a Smoking Zombie with Vodka, Gin, Rum and a float of Chambord, and Vampire Blood with Absolut Acai, Peach Schnapps and Pomegranate Juice.

Down the street at First Food and Bar at the Palazzo there will be featured drinks called the Trick or Chai and the Oktoberfloat on this Halloween.  Also they will be doing raffles and since Sunday is Movie Night at First, they’ll be playing A Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride after the football games.

However, to get you in the mood for Halloween day, the Naked City Pizza Shop inside MoonDoggies Bar on Desert Inn and Arville will be doing their Halloween hang on Saturday, October 30th! A Nightmare On Arville St. will feature food specials, drink specials, and the Bacardi Shot Girls will be on hand.  There will be raffles and contests for best costume as well, so ladies, get the girls good and propped up!  The Naked City Pizza Shop hang begins on Saturday, October 30th at 10pm and will probably last until about Halloween Day of 2011.

If you’ve been dying all your life to meet Dan Aykroyd (and really who hasn’t, Doctor Detroit, SON!), on Friday October 29th from 4-6pm at the Total Wine and More Boca Park location, you’ll have your chance.  The Ghostbusting Blues Brothers star will be on hand to sign bottles of his Crystal Head Vodka.

Big congratulations to one of my favorite Pastry Chefs in town, Keris of Bachi Burger, for landing a new gig with Alex Stratta’s pastry team at the Wynn hotel!  Don’t fear, Bachi Burger lovers, Keris’ signature desserts will still be at Bachi Burger as she’ll be splitting her time between the two locations.  I don’t know if Alex truly knows the talent he’s picked up yet, but all of a sudden the desserts at his restaurant just got a whole lot better!

Not really food related, but a great event is coming up that I wish I could attend.  Alas, The Man must be worked for and Tha’ Billz must be paid.  But, if you’re free and are looking for a warm-up to the Naked City Pizza Shop hang mentioned above, The Vegas Podcast-a-Palooza is this Saturday, October 30th at the Flamingo hotel’s Go Pool from 4-6:30pm. The peeps from Five Hundy by Midnight, The Strip Podcast and The Vegas Gang will be on hand doing their thing for all the world to see.  For more information and to print out your free tickets, visit http://VegasPodcastAPalooza.com.

And now for some Tasting Las Vegas news:

A few of you may have already noticed that TastingLasVegas.com has a slightly different look.  Just like its Papa, TLV has gotten a little wider. I added a sidebar on the lefthand side to free up some advertising space, cause Papa has gots to start paying the bills.  What do you think?  Too cluttered or is it ok?

Also, be on the look out later this week of a reboot of my Dish Spotlight Series! Exciting!

This week’s Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast will feature Chef and Owner of the Naked City Pizza Shop, Chris Palmeri where he dishes on everything from proper Buffalo-style eating to the proper way to store White Alba Truffles!  Also there’s a major announcement which you’re not going to want to miss!  All of this and more should be online as Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast, Episode 04 goes live on Wednesday, October 27th!

Speaking of Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast, it has now been listened to by people in over 75 countries! Last week, the first two episodes both spent time on the iTunes Top Ten Food Podcasts! I am amazed and very appreciative.  Thank you so much for bringing this bubble gum and duct tape operation into your home.  Remember, I’m always open to feedback, so fire away!
