Back to the Namesake

The first two food marathons of the year are currently in planning mode. The first, Fuck the Westside Food Marathon 2007, will only include restaurants east of the 110 Freeway. Current options include SGV, Hot Dogs, Dumplings, Sushi here, Sushi here, Vietnamese Sandwiches, BBQ, Korean, Tacos here or Tacos here.

The idea of a Las Vegas food marathon has been mentioned many times. Until recent years, a strict liquid-only diet hindered any chances of completing a successful marathon. This year I'm allotting an extra day to make sure mass consumption is achieved. One sure stop will be Lotus of Siam. There's been discussion about Rao’s, the East Harlem legend that’s served up joyful evenings of homestyle Italian food and camaraderie since 1896, and is now open at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas! I know there are fans of Pink Taco, the Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay and Hugo's. We'll have to see where this one goes...
