PB&J Margaritas and the New Boxing

This Boxing Is Not Normal Boxing
BOX SEATS

This Boxing Is Not Normal Boxing

It’s called Big Knockout Boxing. It’s similar to boxing-boxing, only with more knockouts, a tiny circular ring, shorter rounds and zero room for playing defense. If you’re into it, the inaugural fight is Saturday at Mandalay Bay. If you’re not into it, the inaugural fight is Saturday at Mandalay Bay.

A Place to Break Bread. And Plates.
MISS CLEO

A Place to Break Bread. And Plates.

Friendly reminder: SLS Vegas is opening on August 23. Friendly corresponding announcement: so is Cleo, that famed LA house of Mediterranean flatbreads and pork belly kebabs. Just look for the place with an honest-to-God designated plate-breaking area. Silly Grecians.

Kanye and José Andrés. Naturally.
FEST CONTROL

Kanye and José Andrés. Naturally.

Kanye West, Skrillex and José Andrés walk into a festival. Oh... you’ve heard this one before? Fine. Joke’s over. It’s not like you were interested in getting tickets today for a three-day festival in October where those musicians will be performing and that chef will be cooking anyway.

You, Beers and a Roof Deck
CARSON CITY

You, Beers and a Roof Deck

Roof decks are a lot better when you’ve got foods and beers in your hands. Funny, that’s exactly what happens at Carson Kitchen, chef Kerry Simon’s new downtown spot. So when you see the beef Wellington empanadas and strong cocktails, you’ll know they’re for your hands.

Now open, Carson Kitchen rooftop, 124 S 6th St (between Fremont and Carson), 702-473-9523

PB&J Margaritas. This Place Has Them.
PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME

PB&J Margaritas. This Place Has Them.

All margaritas are not created equal. Take these 10 new ones at Mandalay Bay’s taco-and-tequila haven, Hussong’s, for example. One of them is the Carnaval de Rio Rita with passion fruit and pineapple. Another’s the PB&J with blackberries and peanut butter cups. See. Nowhere near equal.
