June saw the coming and going of WTE-World Tea Expo back in Las Vegas after holding it last year in Long Beach, CA. Promoters tell us the move back to Las Vegas, where it all started with George Jage, was a request of both their exhibitors as well as attendees, who seem to love visiting this place and find a tea expo is a perfect excuse to do so. Welcome Back to Las Vegas World Tea Expo! We were able to catch the Ito En Team at WTE with their excellent variety of flavored teas and matcha.

Our Editorial Director Bob Barnes recently sat down with General Manager David Wilson at Public House in The Venetian to enjoy a flight of some of the more than 200 different beers being served there. We can verify that there is no crap on tap here, with a well-rounded beer list encompassing nearly every beer style and food that is worthy of the gastropub classification.

At a recent F&B show, our favorite uniform and logo designer, Lucien Salama, CEO of NewChef Fashion of Southern California, showed us some of his latest designs for new and upcoming national foodservice businesses. As one of the original innovators in foodservice uniform design, Lucien has built a long list of dedicated followers who are always delighted to see him still attend shows and expos to get direct exposure with clients. Here Lucien presents his designs and logo creations to potential customers.
