So..what's for eats?

So I went to Cafe Rio in Las Vegas yesterday. The food was fresh as usual and there were a lot of items on the menu. My husband had the enchilada, which to me was pretty sub-par flavor-wise. Usually I have the shredded beef taco which is usually pretty good. However, I decided to try the shrimp taco. I wasn't too impressed with the flavor. The shrimp were pretty bland and the taco was a total snooze..even with all of the extra salsa and sauce I put on it.

I don`t like the fact that the food is not consistent. Sometimes the flavors are out-of-this-world; other times not so much. There are however some cool aspects of this place, like freshly made delicious tortillas and over a hundred drink combinations. The staff is great too.My husband and I were remarking about how we wanted to try one of the desserts one day and the cashier actually brought samples to our table for us. We tried Tres Leches (Three Milks). It was great and we ended up buying it. Overall the place is cool. It has a funky Mexican decor and prices aren' t too bad. We usually end up spending about $20 for two people with drinks. If you are feeling a bit adventurous it is worth a try!

My Rating: 3/5

Wahoo!!

Hey folks,

Just wanted to let you all know what I have been up to lately. I also wanted to do a micro-review of one of the restaurants I have been to recently. While I LOVE being an author and blogger, I also have bills to pay so I had to do the 9 to 5 thing for a bit until things really take off. Since I just moved to Vegas about a month or so ago, I have been super busy.Now that I have settled in a bit I can continue my work. Anywhoo..I have been all up and down the Las Vegas area and I have barely scratched the surface. There is so much to, do, and EAT..yes I said EAT (we will talk more about that in another post). Today after work I went to a place called Wahoo. It is a cool bar & restaurant with yummy fish tacos. That is what I ordered but my husband had the 'Pig Bowl'. I tried some of it and while I liked the fish tacos (which is what this place is known for), I LOVED the pig! It was so flavorful and unique. The rice was slightly hard but everything else was fresh and on point! The bathrooms were clean and there is a baron one side with slot machines (typical for bars here). The staff is friendly and the prices aren't terrible (around $20 for 2 people with drink depending on what you order. It wasn't too crowded but it was a weekday. If you want a cool atmosphere and good food then come here. You won't be disappointed!

Let's do Vegas!

Hey folks,

It has been a while since I have posted in Traveler's Pique but I am finally here in Vegas and loving it! I am no longer a tourist, I live here which is really awesome. You are probably wondering what this means for you and why you should care. Well..I will be giving you in-depth reviews on all of the local restaurants, casinos, hotels, night life, etc.

Of course I will continue to post reviews of my travels outside of Las Vegas but for now, this is where you want to come if you want to know what to do when you visit sin city. Also, my readers will enjoy an exclusive discount of 10% off at Johnson Imagery (on all packages) when you visit Vegas by using promo code: PIQUE10! Stay tuned and see what awesome things I have in store!

Your favorite travel destination during the holidays?

Readers,

Are you ready for the holidays? What are some of your favorite places to visit during this time? Do you like snowy environments or do you prefer something warmer? I love the heat but the holidays are the one time that I actually like snow. There is something about waking up on Christmas and seeing a thick blanket of snow that makes you feel really good. Some of my family members love the snow as well but some actually travel to the islands during this time because they want a mild environment during the holiday season. Many people in my area (New Jersey) like to go to the shore during the holidays. However, because of Hurricane Sandy this has proven quite difficult because of all of the damage. Some people even rent cabins in the mountains to go skiing.

Whatever your destination is just remember to cherish the moments you have with your loved ones. Many of the families in Newton, CT cannot hold their children anymore. My heart goes out to the victims and their families. Let's be safe during the holidays no matter where we are and let's keep Newton, CT in our prayers.

Green light for Vegas!

Hey all,

Sorry it has taken so long for me to post. I have been very busy lately. So..I decided that I like Vegas so much I am moving there..seriously! Time will only tell whether or not I will stay for good but I know that I am not moving back to New Jersey unless I have no other choice. I really like Atlanta as well so if I ever leave Vegas it will be for Atlanta.

Atlanta is awesome, the food, the atmosphere, the people (except when they drive, ha ha), etc. Vegas is awesome because the people there are really diverse and the environment has so much to offer. Life has brought a lot of twists and turns so Vegas should provide the perfect reset.

Where are some places that you have visited throughout your travels that you wouldn't mind living? What do you like about these places? Is it the people? The atmosphere? It is important that we take risks in life sometimes and if we make it, then great, if not then so be it. It is better to take a risk and to fail (and try again) than to remain stagnant and run the risk of becoming dull, boring, and stifled.

I will be posting a lot more soon (several times weekly) but for now my posts will be about once or more a week until I am done packing. You think cross-country travel is hard..try moving ha ha! I hope all is well with you and that your holidays are going great thus far. Whether you are traveling this holiday or staying home, always remember to be grateful and to let your family know that you care no matter what. If there are any unresolved issues remember, the holidays are a time for forgiveness :-)
