BakeSpace is heading to Las Vegas for the yearly geek pilgrimage to CES (Consumer Electronics Show). While we’re excited to check out the new technology, we can’t wait to sample some of the great food that has made Las Vegas a destination for foodies.
This brief guide is by no means a definitive list to eating in Vegas it ain’t too shabby.
Please feel free to add your own suggestions (simply post a comment), and let us know specifically where we should go, what we should order, and why.
