There’s no reason to leave the table hungry during one of Las Vegas’ biggest weekends for foodies.
Though the event doesn’t have an official title, organizers are calling the six events this weekend a “culinary extravaganza,” given that a whopping 35 restaurants — not only from along the Strip but from throughout Las Vegas — will serve up their wares over the three-day festival. A couple of events are sold out, but here’s the bite-by-bite lineup for the tasty activities still available:
“A Family Affair: A Bloody Mary Brunch.” Saturday, 10:30 a.m. at Stripsteak inside Mandalay Bay. Chef Michael Mina will serve his wife Diane’s favorite Bloody Mary concoctions alongside dishes such as an egg scramble with Kaluga caviar, pancakes with foie gras butter and pork belly poached egg with Béarnaise foam. Tickets are $75.
“Hey Chef! A Social Meal with Chef Shawn McClain and James Trees.” Saturday and Sunday, 5-10:30 p.m. at Libertine Social inside Mandalay Bay. McClain, a James Beard award winner, will be joined by executive chef James Trees of Esther’s Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas for two evenings of small plates including agnolotti with mint pesto, bacon and Fontana pizza and ricotta gnudi. This event is not ticketed. Simply show up to order items starting at $14.
