Every time I go to Vegas, I'm reminded how truly enormous human beings are in the non-California parts of the United States. It made it almost impossible to walk through the packed casinos and Caesars Forum Shops - remember that scene in "King Kong" when everybody's trying to run through a canyon without getting trampled by stampeding dinosaurs? It was exactly like that, except instead of stampeding, these massive creatures waddled.
Had dinner at a friend's sushi restaurant, Kaizen, which is across the street from Hard Rock. I remember when they moved to Vegas last year to open their first restaurant, and now they're already planning to open their third. I'm not surprised - the food is pretty damn good. The interesting thing about the Hard Rock location is that most of their dinner customers show up after midnight - bartenders from TAO, waitresses from Nobu, and strippers from Club Paradise. So as of next week, they'll probably be the only sushi restaurant in Vegas open til 6 AM. If you're in town, I highly recommend a visit. At the very least, if you show up around 4 AM, maybe you can get a lapdance with that spicy tuna salad. I'm sure you can think of a better tuna/stripper joke than that, 'cause all I can think of this instant is slumber. Anyway, their website's here.
