ELV thought this would be a good time to share a few thoughts on the James Beard Awards, or, as they’re known around the ELV household – Passover.
Monday at 11:00 at the Venetian/Palazzo the James Beard Foundation will mark the 25th anniversary of the awards by announcing the finalists for this year’s ceremony — in New York, in May — right here in our humble burg.
The fellow pictured above is named Robert Smith. Boring name that. So boring in fact, ELV thinks his name been working against him when it comes to his (not yet) winning a James Beard Award for having the best wine program in the nation. ELV thinks if his name was Shirley Yamamoto or Rampun Anamanawannamoana he would’ve garnered one by now.
