Tribute Tuesday ~ to those who serve…

& since we’re in Las Vegas, taking a look at the Rio, we’re not talking about the military. We’re talking about the boys in black—the bartenders at McFadden’s and the ushers and waiters at the Chippendales show.
First off, to the cuties who work at McFadden’s—especially the New York boys, Eric and Neil—Yooohooo! Thanks for putting up with us ladies and chatting the time away with us before we went to our shows. You two were lots of fun to talk to. Maybe next time we can get you to take your shirts off… 😉  McFadden’s is a great Irish Pub within Rio. They have a sign that warns patrons about dancing on the bar. Here’s Kelly, the blogger extraordinaire, with the sign.

The second night we were there they were having the final round in the Girl-on-Girl Kissing Contest. As the first pair were making out, one of the other couples fell off the bar onto the flock of guys below. Guess they didn’t head the warning on the sign. (If I remember correctly, no one seemed to be hurt.)
Quite an interesting place and event in which to watch human behavior, but as a writer isn’t that what we do? Find out of the ordinary things, observe and document? Even if you’re not a writer, it’s a good place to grab some beer and grub. Plus, you can see Rio’s Show in the Sky right outside the pub in Rio’s Masquerade Village. It’s a free show, open to the public, performed hourly from 6 pm until 11pm every Thursday through Sunday. The male and female dancers are hot!
Then of course there’s the staff up at the Chippendale’s show who add their own special touches to the Chip experience, especially the tall guy in the leather pants…mmmm… but more on Chippendales is to come this week so I’m not going to spoil dinner now. 😉

Tribute Tuesday ~ Great Food!

Today’s tribute is to some great food off the beaten tourist path.
Visiting, or do you live in, Las Vegas? Like Mexican food?
Then you’ll have to check out this great little place southeast of the strip.
El Herradero Restautrant. Located at 1725 E. Warm Springs, Las Vegas
The restaurant is a small place located in a strip mall. There’s no alcohol there and the hours seem somewhat limited (Mon-Fri: 9 am to 8 pm & Saturday 10 am to 6 pm ~ my recommendation is to call before you go to confirm their business hours 702.270.3444). But the food is wonderful! The chips, guacamole and salsa are homemade. The chips aren’t all that salty and the salsa has a nice combination of bite and sweetness. There’s a good selection of different dishes and the portions are generous. For those who like kick with their food, they have a “salsa buffet” that has different levels of hot sauces. Prices are reasonable.
