Drink & Drag Vegas is Dressed Up and Ready to Party

Although Drink & Drag Las Vegas, billed as the “first-ever fully drag queen-staffed bar,” won’t officially open until May 5, 2012, the downtown establishment quietly began to welcome guests this weekend, and we were there.

Carlos’n Charlie’s Las Vegas Opens at Flamingo

The new Carlos’n Charlie’s restaurant has officially opened its doors at Flamingo Las Vegas, to much fanfare. Which is oddly appropriate, because this blog is already a “fan” of its “fare.” And just about everything else at this lively, liquor-fueled, tongue-in-cheek dining experience.
