The senorita bread here...OMG. I can only imagine that one day someone sat down and had an epiphany about how to create the perfect mixture of sugar, flour, and butter. And then...the senorita bread was born. *cue heavenly music*
I was at the 49ers game this past Sunday when they played the Cardinals, and all I can say is, "Who got it better than us?!" The stadium was still packed and full of energy even though it was cold and rainy, and despite an off-game from the special teams, our 49ers still represented out there. I'm not sure how this season is gonna end, but I do know that the 49er Faithful have finally been rewarded by Harbaugh and the boys for sticking with their team through the down years.
5 stars for the 5 Super Bowl championships they've won...maybe we'll be seeing a 6th one soon?The year was 1986. I had started to get into watching Niners football after hearing my family always… En savoir plus
I stayed here on a Vegas trip back in mid-August. I liked how the interior had a sort of faux-Paris sky thing going on with the ceiling, and the floors were made to look like they were cobblestone streets. The room we stayed in was more than adequate, even though it had an outdated TV set that looked like it was made in the late 90's. I'd heard the buffets here were really good, but I never got the chance to find out firsthand since the lines for them were super long on each occasion my friends and I tried to check them out. And as other reviewers have pointed out, the location of this hotel is great because it's in "le centre" of the strip. All in all, I wasn't blown away by this hotel, but I'd probably consider staying here again on a future Vegas trip. 3.5 stars, mes amis!
I've never been to France. Hell, I've never been to Europe. But, I can say that I've been to Paris...the hotel, not the city.
I was here last month when DJ Pauly D. of Jersey Shore made a guest DJ appearance. Normally, I'm not too big on house music, but I actually enjoyed the stuff he and the other DJ's played on the night I was here. Maybe it was just because of the amount of alcohol in my system, but I actually found myself bobbing my head and doing a bit of fist-pumping.
The crowd was mixed, there was a good amount of eye candy, and the level of douchebaggery was surprisingly lower than I thought it might be. I should also add that their bartenders were pretty cool even though they were busy during the majority of the night's events.
If there is one thing I would complain about, it would be that we found out that we were on a waiting list for table service when we thought that we would have table service for 7 people (4 guys, 3 girls).
Nevertheless, we still all had fun here and made the most of our night here. I'd consider checking out Rain again on a future Vegas trip. Since I can't give this club 4 fist-pumps, it'll have to settle for 4 stars instead.
3 stars sounds just about right for this club. It was...aight.
- the music (mostly old-school hip hop with a bit of current stuff and house mixed in)
- the free shots waitresses were offering (but with a very obligatory tip)
- the smokingly hot bartenders
- there was a certain level of snobbiness that emanated from the females there on that particular night...maybe it was just a bad night to be there?
- wasn't really crazy about the layout
- the atmosphere there was kinda blah...I didn't know that was possible in a Vegas club.
This was the first place my friends and I ate at when we were in Vegas last month. I'd honestly never heard of it, but one of my friends suggested it, and I'm actually glad he did. I thought it was cool how they had an actual Harley in the corner (you could actually take pix on it), and another Harley sorta hovering in the air on the other side of the restaurant. I was super-hungry and I wasn't feeling "bad to the bone", so no, I didn't take a pic in front of that Harley.
I ordered the southern fried chicken plate, and as one of the other reviewers noted, they really do give large portions. When I saw how much food was on my plate, I was almost overwhelmed, but in a good way. The fried chicken was pretty good, and I did like the mac & cheese that came with it.
Our server was a pretty cool dude...I think his name was Andrew? He did a good job of checking up on us frequently and making sure everything was fine. I'd definitely check this place out again on my next trip to Vegas.
So I came to this airport for the first time ever last month. I thought it was weird how we had to take a tram just to get to baggage claim. Say what? I'm used to just hoofing it to baggage claim in all the other airports I've been in (to tell the truth, I haven't really been in that many).
It was a trip seeing the slot machines in here though. I guess nothing says Vegas more than bright lights and rows of slot machines in your main airport, huh?
I was going to give this airport 3 stars, but I'm gonna give it a bonus star for the amount of eye candy I saw in the taxi line at this airport. Normally, I'd be feeling impatient waiting in line for a taxi, but the females I saw in that line made it worth the wait.
I used to come here a lot with my grandfather when I was a kid in the early 80's. That was the genesis of my youthful fascination with Twinkies, Hostess Cupcakes, Ho-Ho's, those chocolate and white frosted mini-donuts, and all those different flavors of fruit pies they had. Damn, I think my mouth just watered after I thought about all of those goodies just now. It's a wonder (pun intended) that I didn't end up as an obese kid since I loved all that stuff back then. I haven't been here in years, and I definitely don't eat as many Hostess treats as I once did, but this is a spot that will always mean something to me. It reminds me of simpler times...when my grandfather was still alive and I was just a kid who wasn't trying to be mindful of eating too many sweets.
How the heck are there are only 2 reviews for this place??
I don't really have anything new to say on top of what's already been said about Sunflower Bakery in other reviews here, but in my honest opinion, there are 3 basic reasons to check this spot out:
1.) the caramel cake
2.) the buko (coconut) pie
3.) the red velvet cupcakes
You'll mainly find Filipino-style treats/pastries at Sunflower Bakery, but even if you're not Filipino, I think you're guaranteed to find at least one thing you'll like.
Now you know!
(and knowing is half the battle)
I dunno what it is, but Ohana used to be better back in the day. And when I say "back in the day", I mean like 2008ish, and not "back in the day" in the way that a rapper says it. A few years ago, I used to come here about once a month, and considered it a nice alternative to the L & L in Hercules. But the last few times I got something from here, the food was just aight. It's just not as flavorful as it used to be, kinda like gum after you chew it for about an hour. I don't expect the food here to be up to the standards of the same dishes in Hawaii, but they've fallen off a bit from where they used to be, standards-wise.
