Gordon Ramsey Steak (Paris) – Through the English Channel

April 9, 2013

We all know Gordon Ramsey. The ill tempered celebrity chef from England made a name for himself. When I think of him, he isn’t smiling or laughing. I think of angry eyes, wrinkles on the forehead, and fire coming out of his mouth. That imagery to me, is more laughable than scary. But truly, Gordon […]

Holstein’s (Cosmopolitan) – Only on the Outside, Not Inside

February 22, 2013

First of all, I want to start off by saying that the Cosmopolitan is starting to irritate me. Everything that is the Cosmopolitan is now obnoxious and boring. The types of people the property attracts is just garbage — the bottom of the barrel. Don’t get me wrong. The building and architecture and design of […]

When going to Vegas, some just eat purely at buffets. For some reason, buffets an Las Vegas go hand in hand. They won’t eat at buffets every day when they are at home, but when at Vegas, its buffet after buffet. Hence, they made the Buffet of Buffets, which is a 24 hours pass to […]

Secret Pizza / NNPK (Cosmopolitan) – I Play a Game of Hide and Seek with Food

September 14, 2012

Secret Pizza is just what Cosmopolitan is about — Mysterious, a bit of deviant. I mean, where else will you find a pizza joint with no markings or signs of any nature. No Name Pizza Kitchen? Check.

Hash House a Go Go – So Much Food, And Too Much Food

February 26, 2012

Everything about Vegas is over the top.  One of the most over the top breakfasts can be had at Hash House a Go Go.  They are known for their crazy concoctions of burgers stacked high, pancakes larger than pizzas, and breakfast plates big enough for three, four maybe. I have been to the one in […]

January 4, 2012

Sometimes you want to be bad.  That is what Vegas is for right?  What if you already are in Vegas.  Where do you go to be bad?  Well, Cosmopolitan of course. As they say, they have the right amount of “bad”.  I don’t really know what the right amount of bad is, but if it’s […]

Minus 5 Ice Lounge (Mandalay Bay) – Ice Everything, And Everything Ice

December 8, 2011

Drinking and lounging around inside of an ice bar — how cool (pun intended) would that be?  Minus 5 at Mandalay Bay was a great experience.  What isn’t cool is that they won’t let you take pictures inside. Here is how it goes down.  You pay for a package.  You empty our your pockets and […]

Pizza Place (Wynn) – The Esapanade Is Spectacular – Where’s The New York Pizza?

November 25, 2011

I want to say, for a regular pizza place, the interior was amazing.  The seating was very cafe like, located at the Wynn — everything was impeccable.  The couches, the flat screens, and cealn atmosphere was what attracted to me to this place — other than the fact that I was in the mood for […]

Burger Bar (Mandalay Bay) – Nutella Shake Is All I Need

November 2, 2011

Burger, shake, and fries.  Nothing is more American.  My cousin raved about the burgers at Mandalay Bay’s Burger Bar, so I had to give it a try. Upon walking in, it reminded me of a sports bar slash Irish pub.  It even had accents of a classic American diner.  The TV on each booth even […]
