Drinking Bloody’s a the Cosmo hotel in Las Vegas.
Crazy to think that at a buffet in Las Vegas you could find a hand crafted cocktail such as the Mombo Italiano and yes I do know this is supposed to be about “Bloody Mary” but in reality the Mombo is a Bloody Mary with a twist. The bar at the Wicked Spoon *great name for a buffet btw* has made vodka infused with roasted garlic then mixed it with a balsamic reduction and basil, added mixed with tomato juice and just the right touch of cucumber to make it the tastiest Bloody Mary on the strip, in my EXPERT opinion. Of course #Cosmopolitan_LV needs to incorporate this into their other bars like the Vesper in the lobby.
UPDATE 251pm: We had about 30 people come for the event. An awesome turnout. Great location and it turns out they were having an event there tonight so we were able to get in on the music, adult beverages & bbq.
Today has been officially designated International Cash Mob day. We, at TeamVegas, are proud to participate in this awesome event. It’s one thing to say you are going to create jobs but it is another when people band together to shop their local business in order to infuse money from the surrounding community into the local economy. Small business is what is currently driving our economic recovery. Sure big companies like GM and GE are hiring but so are the food trucks that feed the plant workers, the local dry cleaners that supply clean uniforms.
We went to Eddie D’s with some anticipation after opening the door and seeing the prep station was open to view and the nice welcome we got from the cashier.
We ordered our pie to go and I tackled the meat ball. the sauce was delicious. while the meat ball itself was a bit dry, the sauce was 10x better so who noticed once you combine them.
Service was quick despite it being lunch hour and it seemed to be quite a few regulars since the counter staff called them by name.
Sadly when we got home with our pie, it was uber disappointing. the dough was cardboardish, the sauce was just a swipe and the extra cheese we’d ordered was none existent.
Since our dentist & new favorite bakery is there as well, we will go back and try the sandwiches. From the reviews here, it looks like their sandwiches fare better then that pizza. Of course there is the Vegas water factor in the dough.
See Yelp post for review
I haven’t tried this one yet, but one of our staffers rolled by there yesterday and snatched one up along with his favorite, HopScotch!! He reported back that Pistachio may replace HopScotch on his must have list for a swing by Retro.
*hands on wide hips*..Now I know the Electric West, AMD & IWCE vendors can use the “luck o’ the Irish” on St. Paddy’s and what better way than to throw a booth party with a sweet little treat from Retro Bakery.
