When ELV — the man, the myth, the inveterate, insatiable, fastidious fresser — announced (on Facebook) he was about to do a dinner crawl through the SLS Hotel and Casino last month (to see how its eateries have held up after a year in operation), the comments he received both shocked and disappointed him.
“It used to be good, but isn’t anymore.”
“That place is always empty.”
“It’s about to go out of business.”
“You’ll find that most of the restaurants have either closed or have changed hands.”
Yep, that was the tenor of the comments he received….even as his staff was plowing through dish after tasty dish at the hotel….and he was live-tweeting about how extraordinary each mouthful was.
Well, nothing could be further from the truth.
