On Mother’s Day, the order I placed online was filled by a local florist: standard protocol. I took my parents out to lunch, then dropped them off around 3:00 PM. Despite ordering flowers to be delivered that day, I assumed they might arrive a day or two later – if at all. However, before I arrived home, I received a call from my Mom. Very excited, she said I just had to come back to see the flowers; and, she needed to tell me what happened. With 60 mph winds and temperatures nearing 80, I had visions of her bouquet strewn over every inch of their cul-de-sac….and, yes, this has happened on more than one occasion. But when I arrived, I had to catch my breath: the most impressive arrangement, exhibiting the exemplary talents and expertise of a truly gifted designer, and most importantly, a florist who takes pride in their creations. While admiring the arrangement, Mom raved about the level of service, unheard of these days. The flowers were delivered while we were at lunch; upon returning home, there was a detailed message on their answering machine and a note on their front door, apologizing for attempting a delivery while we were out, and the name and address of the neighbor who accepted delivery. To be afforded such courtesy and professionalism is rare, particularly on the busiest day of the year for florists. In keeping with the level of craftsmanship and etiquette are the unsurpassed selections and superior quality of flowers. Nine days have passed, and the arrangement is still on display, as the Oriental lilies are still blooming.I was compelled to send an email, expressing my appreciation and commending the impeccable service and superior product quality. Faith Lough (proprietor) responded humbly, appreciating the acknowledgement and accolades, and offered her assistance with any future orders. I thought this was a courteous gesture, and protocol for a business savvy merchant.Two days ago, a dear friend called and informed us of his daughter’s unexpected and sudden passing. I ordered flowers for the family yesterday and, in fact, Faith tended to my order personally. After finalizing my order, I realized an error on my part, which Faith also remedied; she, then, took the time to send me an email, and ensure my requests had been addressed and all issues, resolved. Today, I am ordering an arrangement for the funeral, and though it is out of state, I am confident that Faith will personally see to it that the local florist understands that (s)he is representative and an extension of the superiority she demands of herself and We Luv Flowers.It is a privilege and I am proud to be able to share Faith’s arrangements, which demonstrate her unparalleled talents. The degree of professionalism, courtesy and customer service are rare, and greatly appreciated. Faith obviously takes pride and is personally involved in every facet of We Luv Flowers.
I have been to the original in Munich so I'm really happy to have a Hofbräuhaus right here in Vegas. While it's not an exact replica (and the food isn't quite the same), the true German essence is captured through the boisterous atmosphere, authentic imported beer and decidedly German menu. I love to take out of town visitors here, and I visit a couple of times a year when I'm missing the gorgeous country of Germany -- one of my favorites I've ever visited.You'll find the as-big-as-your-head pretzels and all sizes of cold beer (from bashfully mini to "holy cow" huge), and and certain times during the year there will be a good German band playing live. Even if you aren't a beer drinker, it's just crazy to come here and not order a beer! It's so good and there's something for everyone from super light to the darkest of the dark. Come during Oktoberfest and you can drink their truly exceptional imported specialty beer. Don't forget a designated driver!This is a great restaurant for large groups as the venue is equipped to handle them. Patrons sit at long, shared tables (just like in Munich), so be prepared to make friends! Kids seem to love the place too because they can dance around and jump to the music. The German food is authentic and tasty. Not fantastic but good (and overpriced). There's a great tiny gift shop in the lobby with cool beer steins, stuffed bear toys, funny hats and lederhosen. The waitresses wear just sexy enough drindls, a big plus for the men in your party. I know my husband and his buddy enjoyed taking a shot and getting paddled by one of the ample-bosomed girls on our last visit. Yes, you can get bent over a table and paddled. It's a gimmick but it's funny to watch guys whoop and holler. The mostly concrete beer hall is huge and cavernous (just like in Germany), so be warned that this is not a place to come for an intimate dinner or soft conversation. It is loud, loud, LOUD in there. When the crowds get heavy, the band gets even louder. Pounding on tables, stomping on the floor, drunken singing and shouting out toasts is not only tolerated but openly encouraged. If you know the chicken dance you will have a blast.While the noise is to be expected, the biggest negative is the service; I don't think I've ever had good service here but that's okay. You'll most likely be too busy stuffing your face with pretzels and beer to worry about that!
I'm going to chalk this review up to growing pains and I promise to revisit this location again soon, but my first visit to Farmer Boys was less than successful. I'm so happy to have a nice new burger joint on the Southwest side of town, but this place was more of a miss than a hit with me. And I know my burgers!Let's start with the positives: the place is spotlessly clean. I mean "I'd have zero qualms about eating off the floor" kind of clean. That's a pretty major feat considering I visited at 12:30 on a Tuesday during peak lunch rush hour. The place was packed, there wasn't any seating, but it was super clean. The interior design is very welcoming and comfortable too...if you can find a seat! I asked for my burger wrapped in lettuce low carb style and there was no confusion, so yay for that. Now for the not so good: the menu is a little confusing if you are a first timer. Step back and really study it. Lots of choices, and it doesn't make sense what you get with what. Like can I have fried zucchini if I get a combo, and how many do I get? Nobody could give me a definitive answer. The employees were confused too -- they didn't know what was supposed to come on my burger (and subsequently left the avocado off of my avocado burger). We also had to ask several times for silverware and a side of mayonnaise. When I finally got the kitchen to give me the missing avocado, I was handed a cup of mashed up avocado instead of the pretty slices shown on the menu photos. It still tasted good so I didn't care, but I think this is worth noting.None of these complaints are that serious, but there was one big problem with my meal: it simply didn't taste very good. The food tasted fresh, but it was so bland. It was like the cook forgot to season my meat and zucchini. It was so weird! I don't cook with salt at home -- I actively avoid eating it -- but I had to reach for the salt (something I NEVER do). Freddy's, Fatburger and Smashburger all make more delicious burgers.I really want to give Farmer Boys another chance, and I think they deserve one. But I wanted to share my first impressions for now.
Okay, this is the deal. Phantasy Hair Salon owners “say” they do not accept reservations. In actuality they do. If you go in and sign their book and come back hours later, you are the next person in line.This is what happened to me…I went in and saw 7 names on the list. I sat and waited as 4 people got their haircut. In walks a family of 5 and they go and sit down without writing their name on the list. I figured then that something was up, but I wasn’t sure. When the 4th person was finished getting his haircut, 1 member of the family of 5 walked over and sat in the barber’s chair.Sure, their names were on the list a page before mine…but when I sat down I hadn’t figured on waiting for 12 people (or possibly more…how far does the list go back?). Someone should have told me OR they need a better system.Poof! 30 minutes of my day was wasted PLUS the time it took to drive there. Why not simply accept reservations instead of wasting people’s time?!?If you want a good haircut, these folks can deliver…BUT you’ll NEVER know what the wait time will be once you make the long drive there. I’ve gone to Phantasy Hair salon and had to leave SEVERAL times either because the wait list was too long or because there was an unexpected sign on the door during regular business hours announcing that they were closed that day. In actuality, I’ve had to leave the salon more times than I’ve received a haircut…so the odds of winning big on the slots at the hotels on the strip are better than getting a haircut at Phantasy Hair Salon.Good luck to you if you’re willing to gamble a good part of your day! I'm not anymore.
I'm a coffee snob, there's no doubt about that. I'll admit it. It all started when I first traveled to Italy and I tasted a REAL espresso. There's no turning back from that, and Starbucks just doesn't cut it. There's a REASON there aren't any Starbucks stores in Italy!Sambalatte is a place where they understand good coffee. Each beverage is hand crafted so it's not a place to go if you are in a hurry. I don't mind if the baristas take their time making my coffee, it just goes to show how important it is to them to put out a good cup. It's pricey ($4.50 for a cappuccino) but it's GOOD. This coffee might not significantly change your life, but it'll make you much happier than a Starbucks run would. Give it a try if you are at the Monte Carlo!Make sure you order your coffee to enjoy in the store, not to go. You'll be treated to a real cup, a proper sized portion, and gorgeous coffee art! A cappuccino is worth it just for the pretty presentation! This location has a fantastic attached outdoor patio so on a nice day, sit outside and linger while enjoying some of the best people watching in the country. On nice evenings, there's sometimes a band that plays right outside so you get the bonus of a free show too.I love this place and I love their coffee. I frequent both locations (the one in Summerlin mostly). I'm so happy that this Strip location has opened because our tourists can now enjoy this yumminess.

I absolutely LOVE what KG Dominican Beauty Salon did with my hair. The results are amazing!!!!! I've gone to the best salons around the world and I have not been able to leave with the satisfaction that I received from KG Dominican Beauty Salon.
