I’m high class. When I go to Vegas, I dine at the Wynn. Of course I stay at the Flamingo – but I dine at the Wynn.
I highly recommend the Terrace Pointe Cafe. They make a nice Turkey Sandwich – good quality Turkey, nice bread, etc. But, I recommend this place for the atmosphere. It’s quiet and away from all of the Vegas scum and it has a great view of the pool and terrace. But don’t take my word for it. Check out these douchebags hanging out at this place. (BTW, I don’t know these nerds, I just found this photo on the Google Search)
Pretty nice, huh?
Ok, here’s the deal. I’m going to Vegas. Pretty much everyone has been to Vegas – so YOU TELL ME where I should go to eat a Turkey Sandwich. And no, I’m not going all the way out to some fucking hole in the wall in Henderson to grab a TR. Keep it on The Strip or Old Vegas.
I have quite a trip ahead of me this week:
Tues – Late night flight to Vegas
Wed/Thurs – Vegas. None of this bullshit like they had at Paris last time I was there. When I am in Vegas and want a Turkey Sandwich, I expect a fucking Turkey Sandwich. And I will find one.
Fri – Driving to LA. I think I will stop in Barstow and see what they have to offer.
Sat – Disneyland. Does the Magic Kingdom have a magical Turkey Sandwich? We shall find out.
How big of a deal in the world of Turkey Sandwiches am I? Such a big deal that when I request the presence of a certain hot shot owner of a chain of sandwich shots at a meeting, I get it. I also order off the menu.
Today, I spoke with Jeff Sinelli, who is the Founder of Which Wich. I wanted to speak with him because we will both be speaking at the upcoming Word of Mouth Marketing Association Summit in Vegas. I wanted to see if Jeff would be interested in getting a beer and a Turkey Sandwich and talk some shop. He’s on a tight schedule as any sandwich entrepreneur would be, but he’s going to carve out some time for me.
I’m calling this meeting “The Turkey Sandwich Summit”. It’s kind of like Reagan/Gorbachev in ’86 – two world powers getting together and discussing important stuff.
More details to come, but needless to say – this summit is going to shape how Turkey Sandwiches are prepared and eaten for years to come.
BTW, I did have a Turkey Sandwich from Which Wich today. I went with the “Thank You Turkey. Nice sandwich. One side had a little too much cranberry and they forgot my lettuce, but overall, a solid Turkey Sandwich.
Ahh, the ups and downs of Vegas.
The ups: Mr. Lucky’s at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino makes a nice Turkey Sandwich. But what’s best about their Turkey Sandwich is that you can get it any time of day. Want to do some early morning Roulette and grab a Turkey Sandwich after hitting “black” five times in row? You can do that. Want to get loaded playing Pai Gow Poker and satisfy your Turkey Sandwich temptations at 3am? Fine. It’s available. BECAUSE THEIR WHOLE MENU IS AVAILABLE 24/7.
The downs: The same cannot be said about “Le Cafe” at the Paris Hotel and Casino. At “Le Cafe” you have to wait until to get 11am to get a Turkey Sandwich. They have a nice display of the Sandwich sitting out to tease you, but when you order it – you are DENIED and forced to get a fucking ham and egg croissant. And I think that’s bullshit.
I’m not saying that every place needs to be as accomodating at Mr. Lucky’s. But waiting until 11am to start serving lunch, complete horseshit. Especially in Vegas.
When I drop $500 on blackjack, I expect a fucking Turkey Sandwich when I ask for it. Got it “Le Cafe”?
