In Vegas, brunch is as important a part of the weekend’s entertainment as the day clubs, shows, hotels, and gambling. And finding the best breakfast in Las Vegas serves a couple of important functions: You can regard it as a recuperative treatment for the prior night’s hijinks, or a head start into whatever you’re getting up to later in the day. Either way, the best brunches contain both the important elements of great food, of course, and great people watching. Add in a boozy element or rosé-all-day menu add-on, and you’ve reached the Vegas brunch trifecta.

Perhaps it isn’t surprising that Las Vegas has a selection of restaurants and bars that welcome customers’ dogs. The city has one of the highest dog park rates per capita in the country.

This is good news for dog lovers who know that the happiest hour at any bar takes place when both two-legged and four-legged patrons are served. Showing up to brunch with a canine companion might be a serious faux pas in some cities, but the places featured on this map welcome the presence of puppies.

From restaurants such as Town Square and Downtown Summerlin’s Lazy Dog, which offers chef-prepared meals for dogs, to breweries like Big Dog’s Brewing Co., a haven for local beers and local pups, it’s easy to find dog-friendly dining in Las Vegas. Know of another favorite dog-friendly destination? Hit up the tipline.

Legendary Nevadans: Mark Twain – Nevada Magazine

All Nevada is a stage, and cowpokes, artists, activists, and visionaries are the players in a drama centuries in the making.

Whether born or raised, these special characters aren’t just Nevadans: they’re Legendary Nevadans.

In 1861, Samuel Clemens was living his childhood dream as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi. The 25-year-old had established himself as a talented, respected navigator and earned a considerable salary of $70 a week (equivalent to about $2,000 today).  But that summer, Clemens knew his days as a pilot were over.

The Civil War had just begun, and military blockades were undoing his livelihood. With few prospects in his home state of Missouri, a new opportunity suddenly appeared from his older brother.

Many cities are identified with an iconic food.

Philadelphia has its cheesesteaks, New York has pizza, New Orleans has po-boys, Baltimore has crab cakes.

Las Vegas has all of them, because Vegas means a buffet. “I think it’s about having a sense of indulgence and having everything. All of the choices are there for you but you don’t really have to make a decision,” says Wes Holton, executive chef at Bellagio Las Vegas, “I think that kind of sums up Vegas and what people expect when they come to Vegas.”
