Las Vegas, NV - Jim Flynn's BestWeekends

Las Vegas, NV

Las Vegas, NV Overview

Las Vegas was founded in 1905 with the opening of the railroad that linked the city with Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. Around 1931 when work started on the Hoover Dam and brought an influx of workers, the town exploded. The Mafia began building casinos and theaters and it wasn’t until the mid-60’s when Howard Hughes came to town that the Mafia influence waned. Today the city is a family friendly destination with casinos, entertainment and luxury dining.

Hugo’s Cellar

Hugo's Cellar is a somewhat unlikely choice for dinner. It doesn't show up on any "lists" of the best restaurants in town, it has been around forever and it is located underneath the Four Queens Hotel, a decidedly down market casino on Fremont. This is "old school" Vegas. It's dark with cozy booths, candles, artwork…

Lakeside Wynn

I am kind of a stickler when it comes to seafood. If it has been frozen, I can tell with the first bite and I am done with it. That makes Lakeside at Wynn the perfect seafood restaurant for me. Lakeside serves Hawaiian seafood, line-caught by family fishermen in Hana and flown daily, directly to…
