Long Weekends Mess with My Head

Yeah, so we had a long weekend to celebrate the end of summer. Frankly, I THOUGHT I was ready for summer to end, but clearly I wasn’t, because I was STILL too busy having a great time to remember I was supposed to post a blog. I could say that I was going to a kick ass fundraiser for my Food Bank – Three Square – and I wanted to be sure to be able to write about it, but that would just be incidental. I did go to a fab event last night, but it was still Tuesday and I still should have written.

This will be MOSTLY a photo blog about the food I ate during Restaurant Week, and the fun I had over Labor Day weekend, in reverse order. But first about the fundraiser:

Three of our local food writers have a fun book out called “Eating Las Vegas – the 50 Essential Restaurants”. They have picked on Chefs and restos here in town, in their book, in their columns and sometimes in person. This time it was the Chefs opportunity to fire back at them. It was all in good fun and the Chefs, not always known for being good public speakers, did a great job. Our panel of roastees were all good sports. Thanks to Al Mancini, John Curtas and Max Jacobson for being willing to sit thru the commentary. And thanks to Dave and Mahoney of X 107.5 for being our fantastic Roast Masters. All proceeds from the event went to Three Square as a kick off to Hunger Action Month. I hope they make it a regular event!

Then Monday there was the All White Party at STK. Yes that is very cool performance art of black electrical tape on nude women. For more pics go to Spy-On Vegas

Sunday I stayed home
Saturday was National Bacon Day and Brian Howard did us all proud. This menu was fabulous!

And Restaurant Week

This week will be MORE more sedate…just about boring in fact.
