360 Vegas Review: Planet Dailies Fall 2013

Every property in Vegas has a coffee shop, its part of the blueprints of a hotel & casino.  Slots here, craps table there and coffee shop around the corner.  As with everything in Vegas, quality varies from one property to the other.  But if you’re tired of the decadent dining surrounding you in Vegas, it’s the one place you can be sure to get a simple meal of eggs and bacon for breakfast or a club sandwich for lunch.

Enter Planet Dailies, the coffee shop at Planet Hollywood.  At first glance you get the impression something is different here.  Not only is the space modern and sheik but it very much fits in with the
property surrounding it.  The space showcase warm colours, wood furnishings and surrounds you with 48 flat screen TVs with programing consisting of movie previews, celebrity news and various accident-prone blooper entertainments.  But who cares about all that, how’s the food.

Why bother doing what everyone else does?  Why not attempt to rethink the standards and elevate them to a new plateau.  It is Vegas, blur the lines.  At Planet Dailies, the French toast is dipped in a crème Brule batter, the BLT is topped with two poached eggs and angus hamburgers are served on a bed of rice, topped with an egg and covered in gravy.  Good luck deciding what you want to try 1st here and once you do that, good luck trying to not order it every time you go back.  Rest assured that, almost without exception, no matter what you order, you are going to love it.

Twitpic of the week

It’s a metaphor for the entire Vegas experience.  Driving northbound on Las Vegas Blvd. when you see it in the distance.  The closer you get to the sign the more buildings stretch skyward.  The welcome sign smirking as if to say, “Yeah, this is how we roll”.  Especially for those of us that love the city, seeing all the options of epic stacked on top of each other is enough to get the heart pumping a little faster in anticipation of what’s to come.  If you’ve never had the change to do it, I high recommend it.  Go check out South Point, and then drive back to the strip.  You won’t be disappointed.  This week’s winner from @mlifeinsider captures a piece of that experience, possibly the money shot, if you will.
