In honor of the Winter in Venice festival going on at the Venetian/Palazzo today (especially the “How to Italian” food festival starting this morning), we at ELV thought a little music was in order:
Archive for the ‘Events’
ELV note: You’ll have to scroll to the 55:00 minute mark,* i.e. five minutes before the end of the broadcast to observe the restaurant critic with a face made for radio actually SITTING IN THE ANCHOR CHAIR LIKE THE BIG KIDS and being interviewed by Krystal Allan about our two big foodie events of this weekend: the Winter in Venice “How to Italian” festival going on tomorrow at the Palazzo Atrium from 11am-3pm, and the Container Park — which officially opened this week in downtown Las Vegas.
* ELV is convinced that Marcella Ruth Schroader Curtas (D.O.B. 08.10.24 – The Official Mother of ELV) is the only person who ever bothers to do this.
There’s something happening this Sunday. Something that hasn’t happened here in 2 years. Something I’ve mentioned several times in the past because of the great impression it left me the last time it was here. I’m talking about COCHON 555, BABY.
As a little background, Cochon is a touring show, part education on the virtues of the most delicious of animals (besides the giant tortoise, apparently), and allowing chefs to REALLY show off. (more…)
Remember when I posted a little ol’ article about how October is going to absolutely friggin’ PACKED with events? Five big events, that seems like a considerable amount, correct?
TURNS OUT THERE IS MORE
Also we can call it four big events because the Jean Louis Palladin dinner has been moved to February, in hopes to relieve chef stress to less-than-lethal amounts.
Looking transplendent in his all-white attire — and bedecked with the de rigueur Greek fisherman cap — ELV put in his annual plug for the Greek Food Festival this morning on Wake Up With the Wagners — at the ungodly hour of 6:15 am.*
The festival begins this afternoon at 3:00 o’clock on the grounds of the St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church,** where ELV will be working at the bar and serving up ouzoritas*** all night long.
Kali orixi! (“bon appetit” in Greek) to all, and see you at the bar!
* There are only two things a gentlemen should be doing at 6 o’clock in the morning: sleeping….or coming home and getting ready to go to sleep.
In two weeks, Las Vegas’s best Greek restaurant will open for only three days.
It’s about the only time all year ELV gets excited about Greek food (along with when he gets invited to a relative’s house) and he will be tending bar (and over-serving ouzoritas to himself) next |Friday night if you’d like to drop by.
Speaking of getting excited, there is nothing, NOTHING exciting or interesting about the Vegas food scene these days — which is the reason our website posts have been few and far between. (When we can work up the enthusiasm to write about it, we’ll give you our less-than-enthusiastic take on Echo & Rig.)
In the meantime, we’ll look forward to gorging ourselves on Las Vegas’s best Greek cooking, Friday-Sunday, Sept. 27-29.
