With about 500 items on the menu at the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, there are a lot of superstar dishes vying for your attention. The desserts, though, often steal the spotlight. We snapped pics of 11 that caught our eye during a recent visit. We would love to be able to tell you the….
BurGR restaurant at Planet Hollywood has quickly become one of the hottest burger joints in Vegas, but now it’s even hotter. The restaurant recently lit up a cool new decorative feature along the restaurant’s outer wall, a 30-foot-long, glass-enclosed wall of flames. The fire shoots out of two sculptured, serpentining steel burners, making the restaurant….

It’s Vegas, just deal with it. Thanks to the roaming balloon-maker at Carlos’n Charlie’s restaurant at Flamingo for the balloon sculpture this blog probably does not condone.

The individual-sized portions at the Bacchanal Buffet inside Caesars Palace are pretty much made-to-order, which means the food comes out so hot, the buffet gives out colorful little plastic thingys to help protect your digits. We think they make a great Vegas keepsake. Get ready to use your finger protector thingy a lot at the….
