Vegas Mate Review of the Week
This week’s review comes to us from Scott Wolff; it’s his Feb 19th review of the Buffet @Aria – 5/5 chips

Twitpic of the week

This week’s winner goes to @JohnColsonphoto for yet another unique, askew photo of Vegas.  This time, it’s a photo of the reflection of Paris’ Eiffel Tower and Balloon, Bally’s hotel signage and a small amount of Flamingos building and signage in Cosmopolitan’s windows.  All that with a bunch of light spots scattered all over.  I love how the windows jaded pattern causes the reflections to look as if they are being viewed from a broken mirror.  It’s almost like a metaphor for the Vegas experience, through the looking glass.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this guy has skill.  I would just love to wander the strip with John one of these times, just to see what he sees.
