Las Vegas: Gritz Café (@gritzcafe)

I’ve had this place bookmarked for the longest time.  They serve fried chicken, waffles and grits… sinful, comfort food.  The reviews on yelp said the place is tiny, a bit slow (as they cook to order) and terribly busy on weekends. For my visit, I came on a […]

Las Vegas: Brooklyn Bowl 

It’s been about 2 years since I was last at Brooklyn Bowl.  The last few times I tried going, they had a private party and canceled my reservations.  I had given up going here but I gave this place one more try on this visit.  Hurrah! I got […]
