Bourdain Does Vegas (Again)
It is hard to think of a better way to spend 4/20 than booze, bong hits, Bourdain and Vegas. Yes kids, Bourdain is back in Vegas. With Ruhlman in tow too. He's swapped his previous home in a spartan Wynn Panoramic with a Caesars villa... rendering, in Vegas terms, the difference between his Travel Channel and CNN shows.
He's written up a preview. Here's a taste.
The very nice people at Caesars Palace, well acquainted, no doubt, with Ruhlman's reckless ways at the blackjack tables, gave us a "villa" for a week. If you don't know what those are - don't worry, I didn't either. You can't rent them. They don't "exist" on the web site. When my wife paid me a surprise visit in the middle of the shoot, the front desk expressed total ignorance of even the existence of such structures. But they are there. Massive, colossal maximally luxurious homes, buried right under the noses of the unwitting masses. Multiple bedrooms, living areas, game room, screening room, outdoor fire pits, pools, hot tubs, silent butlers who appear from nowhere to inquire if the gentlemen would like a cocktail, a snack, a couple of giant porterhouses.
