Monday Mise en Place: Social House Takes Bluefin Tuna Off Their Menu

Social House Now Bluefin Free! Yay!

Social House Now Bluefin Free! Yay!

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve finally been able to take a restaurant on The Las Vegas Restaurants Serving Bluefin Tuna List Of Shame off the list! Social House at the Crystals Mall in CityCenter has made the responsible choice to no longer offer the gravely endangered fish on their menu.  I hope other restaurants on that list will see the same light Social House did and follow suit.  Many thanks to TLV Army member, Julie Minadeo, for alerting me to Social House’s decision.  Remember, if you see Bluefin Tuna on a menu or inquire about what kind of tuna a restaurant uses and they say bluefin, let me know!  Together we can play a significant role in saving a species. Not bad.

As the couple two three dozen TLV Army members who rolled out to the first Tasting Las Vegas: The Tweetup can attest, Chris Palmeri, The Naked City Pizza Shop and MoonDoggies Bar know how to host a hang!  Hot off the heels of the good times at the Tweetup, they’re hosting Las Vegas’ Biggest Thanksgiving Eve Party on Wednesday, November 24th starting at 9pm.  Back in Buffalo, Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest drinking night of the year as old friends come back to town and hang until the wee hours.  There will be all sorts of specials, the kitchen will be open all night, there’ll be drinking games, prizes and a whole bunch more.  Good times guaranteed.  Remember TLV encourages you to drink responsibly!  Please throw up in the toilet, not the sink!

And because the party never stops at the Naked City Pizza Shop you might as well just stay there through Saturday, November 27th as the NCPS and MoonDoggies Bar teams up with Fukuburger for a blowout hang event!  Stay tuned to Tasting Las Vegas on Twitter and Facebook as details roll out this week about the big event.   You can also follow the Naked City Pizza Shop on Twitter at @NakedCityLV and Fukuburger at @fukuburger.

Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast Taking A Break To Eat Turkey

Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast Taking A Break To Eat Turkey

A little programming note for this week, our next new Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast will be uploaded to the internets for your listening pleasure on December 1st.  We’re taking a week off for Thanksgiving.  We need it. I’m tired.  Really tired. However, there’s some exciting stuff when we return, one of which is that we’ll be starting a new format to the show!  We’ve decided to separate the restaurant talk and hilarious banter which we’ve all grown to love into one episode, then there will be a separate episode that will be just the Chef Interview.  The idea is that y’all will have two separate shorter bits so it will be a tad easier to digest.

Also on our triumphant return on December 1st, we will announce The Next Phase of Tasting Las Vegas which I couldn’t be more excited about!   Don’t worry, we’re still going to be the bubble gum and duct tape operation of Las Vegas restaurant news and reviews…we’re just going to have an addition to the family.  And no…The Wife isn’t knocked up.  In the meantime, you can catch up on our first 7 episodes which are all found here.  Enjoy and have a great Thanksgiving!

  • I think that deserves a round of back patting.

  • julia

    awesome news! BIG congrats

  • Thanks guys, but I don’t know if I should take any credit. For all I know it was just a coincidental good decision. I figure if they took Bluefin off the menu with the list in mind, they would have contacted me themselves. I mean….ummm…yeah…yay me!

    Either way, it’s a big win for the fish, and that’s what’s most important!

    I love being a member of the TLV Army!! Thanks Mike

  • I was thinking of it as more of a group effort. If we all vocally bitch, RT the bitching, as well as share the bitching on FB, well, you would think it would sink in eventually.

  • Congrats, and thanks for thinking of our friends from the sea. :-D

    And enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. I know I will. I’m sure I’m not the only one who can’t wait for the 12/01 big reveal.

  • when the TLV army grows will the dozens of us in rank and file be promoted to generals???

  • You are all generals in my eyes! But yes, O.G. TLV Army members will always have special privileges. I don’t know exactly what those privileges are, but they will be special!

    It’s most certainly a team effort, and I think getting Bluefin out of Las Vegas is a goal we can accomplish if we all work together.

    And I’m excited for the big announcement on Dec. 1st too! I think it’s something that a lot of people have been looking for. I hope.
