Taking a break for Café Bustelo at Gila Blend inside a casino

— The play on words on this Café Bustelo sign — assuming it was intentional — might not be so obvious if you haven’t spent much time in Arizona. Gila Bend is a small town in Maricopa County, located near a bend in the Gila River, about an hour’s drive from Phoenix. However, it wasn’t the playful name that lured us into this snack bar at the Quechan Casino, a few miles from Yuma, across the state line in California.
Weird dinner experience at Gordon Ramsay Steak, Las Vegas

Weird dinner experience at Gordon Ramsay Steak, Las Vegas

— Our beef Wellington, now completely cooked but neither carved nor garnished, was brought out to us in a frying pan lined with what appeared to be coarse salt and a handful of peppercorns. Basically we were teased with our dinner, only to have it taken away again. I’ve decided to call this the proof-of-life phase of our meal. They showed us our dinner just long enough to let us know it existed, and then quickly returned it to hiding for another eight to ten minutes.
