1. The Stove just celebrated its one-year anniversary with a special celebration with an amazing spread prepared by Chefs/Owners Scott Commings and Antonio Nunez that included prime rib, salmon, pastas, vegetables, stuffed olives, peppers and mushrooms and plenty of appetizer plates. Several of our staff were there to partake in the festivities, including Bob Barnes, Shelley Stepanek and Elaine and Scott Harris. The deck of this second-floor establishment is great for a drink and a place to relax and the view over the Vegas Valley is stellar. Chef Antonio told us they are making an announcement soon; can’t wait to hear it. 


    After a two-year absence, Editorial Director Bob Barnes made his way back to Buddy V’s Sunday Brunch, located within The Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes. Manager Rebecca Mendiola was a delightful and charming host and informed us of several new upgrades to the brunch. In addition to its expansive spread set up on several stations (antipasto, carvery, sweet table, chefs corner and kids corner), now there are NY strip with chimichurri, white pizza with mushroom and artichoke, smoked salmon, hummus, goat cheese with tomato and basil and mini-cakes in flavors such as carrot and raspberry white chocolate. The brunch is held Saturday-Sunday from 10:30-2:30 with live music performed on Sunday.
