Thursday Podcast: Previewing Vegas Uncork'd


Pajama Party Brunch at Simon in Vegas (photo by Steve Dolinsky)

Aspen has the Food & Wine Classic, South Beach just had its own Wine & Food event, and we all know Chicago Gourmet’s weekend is slated for mid-September. In Vegas, they’ve been running Vegas Uncork’d the last few years, and this year is no different. In a city that brags about its world-class, celebrity chefs, this is the one time of year (Mother’s Day weekend) when all of these big names actually are in town, working the line, serving customers and teaching classes. I spoke with Erika Pope, the Director of Publicity for Vegas Uncork’d last weekend about what to expect this year.

Oh, in case you’re wondering what that picture above has to do with anything? It’s from Simon Restaurant & Lounge at Palms Place, where they have a “Pajama Party Brunch” every Sunday. I talked with Erika there, and so we just had to show you how the servers and hostesses come to work.
