Who doesn’t love a good play on words. Especially the subtle witty kind that sneaks up on you. I had a great stay at the Liberty Hotel a few weeks ago (I’ll tell you more about that later). The hotel was renovated a couple years ago from what was previously the Liberty Jail. If you […] read more»

I tried the beef dashi soup. It was incredibly hearty, and rich with a slight hint of sweetness. My favorite part […] read more»

The atmosphere is classy but casual and the overall aesthetic is very well thought out. It has an upscale rustic vibe with hipster accents like string lights. They offer French comfort food you can’t pass up. Our one big tip, is do not leave the premises without trying their brussel sprouts. We had the distinct […] read more»

My sister and I just returned from an amazing trip to Vegas. We both donated a bit of dough to a variety of casinos, but people tell me the odds are stacked against us?? I am beginning to thin there may be something to that. It is open air on the corner of Las Vegas […] read more»
