The question is whether it's possible to subsist for an entire weekend solely off of 'wichcraft and In-n-Out burger (okay, and a single, over cooked, steak). The answer to the question is yes.

As an aside, neither 'wichcraft nor In-n-Out burger are particularly good.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

i did that once for 4 days and it was fine but i also had a haagen daz shake, every day.

'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Valuable nutritional content there. The four slices of processed cheese on my four-by-fours really weren't getting me the calcium I needed.

(real) Canadians don't use ketchup, malt vinegar on the fries only. Source of endless frustration for my mom during family vacations to the states.

ETA: Though perhaps I overstate the case - malt vinegar on fries may be regional delicacy: Toronto's British culinary appendage.

You should have gone to the Fukuburger truck for late night burgers and fries. Usually hangs out in Chinatown on Spring Mountain Road. Excellent burgers and fries with crack sauce. Much better than In and Out.

Any good Chinese Places open up? I am reading about this place Boomin SPot Mini Pot, which has great reviews on yelp. Appears to be a Hot Pot place.. Also, next to Yun Nan Garden, I noticed a place serving Hunan food called Dong Ting. I think I want to go there this trip too. I will be in town for several days.

So, I have a dinner planned for some of my employees tonight. We are at Bally's again. I want Mon Ami Gabi but, i feel like it's going to be too loud and sitting outside is not an option. I am considering, going to Batistas Hole in the Wall or was considering La Provencal. Has anyone been to Batista's? Any other suggestions.

went to Del Frisco's last night. There was a strange sulfur smell in the air . I was nervous I was having a stroke or something but, it must have been an issue with the plumping. I seemed to be the only person to notice this so I left it alone. We were celebrating a customers 50 birthday. We took several shots of this vodka sitting in pineapple juice. We ordered an 03 lopez heredia. sides were delicious. lobster mac and cheese, creamed spinach with bacon and potato chips.

Fun night.. I think this is the longest I have stayed out of Chinatown while in Vegas. Heading over to Yun Nan Garden tonight.

Add Hong Kong Garden on Jones between Spring Mountain and Desert Inn to your list of places to try.

Yunan Garden to the dome piece. The three of us ordered 8 dishes without including going to the cold dish bar and ordering sour cabbage, peanuts and little fish and some sort of dried spicy beef in a spicy sauce.. Most likely shin..

The standouts were the cumin lamb, the fried pork rib pieces covered in some sort of dried grain. There was also some sort of combo which included sliced fish and pork intestine stew we put over rice. There was also sweet and sour fried fish, green beans and minced pork,.. I see since I have been there, they won an award which called them one of the top 100 Chinese Restaurants in the country..

It rained for a few minutes.. It was an intense rain with crazy winds.. The rain was coming sideways. I have not seen it rain like that in Vegas for a few years.

I love this place.. And my favorite customer, who i have dined with all over China, called this one of his favorite Chinese restaurants he has ever been to..

There is no doubt this place is special. Followed by a nice run on the black jack table. life is good.
