Hash House A Go Go in Las Vegas Hosts Viewing Party for Travel Channel’s “Man v. Food”

Hash House a Go Go restaurant teams up with Mix 94.1 and Jack FM radio stations in Las Vegas to host a viewing party for the Las Vegas episode of “Man v. Food,” which features the restaurant’s twisted farm food.

There will be happy hour prices on drinks from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on August 12 featuring $2 domestic 20-ounce drafts, $3 imported drafts and $3 well drinks. For non-drinkers, Hash House’s signature Kiwi Watermelon Lemonade, featured in the show, will be available for only $1 and the first 50 people to arrive at the event will get their first drink free. Attendees can also enjoy complimentary big food appetizers including meatloaf sandwich skewers; mini double stack ham, egg and cheese burgers; mini chicken and waffle bites. Raffle drawings will be held throughout the evening where guests have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes including concert tickets and a $100 gift card to Hash House A Go Go.

“Man v. Food,” airs August 12 at 10 p.m. on the Travel Channel, following host Adam Richman as he travels the country in search of restaurants that serve the biggest and best local meals. After seeking out each city’s top culinary destinations, Richman puts his appetite to work and attempts to conquer the toughest food challenges.

Apparently, Richman, who also experienced eating the bodacious six-pound, two-foot long Big Badass Burrito [prior Las Vegas Backstage Access article] offered by the NASCAR Cafe in Las Vegas on the episode, is really hooked on the Hash House after he devoured the fried chicken eggs Benedict- grilled mash, fried pasta, buttermilk biscuit, tomatoes, spinach, bacon, half-pound fried chicken breast, scrambled eggs, grilled cheese and chipotle sauce.  Talk about a Tum’s moment!

Top Chef Filming in Las Vegas?

If the Tweets on Twitter are to be believed, the sixth season of Bravo TV’s Top Chef has reportedly begun filming on location in Las Vegas.  top-chef And apparently Los Angeles Times reporters are believers too, saying that filming for Season Six will begin today.

Las Vegas has already been an integral part of Top Chef history. The Season One finale took place at the MGM Grand and most of the season’s shows have found Las Vegas chef’s represented in the kitchen including Season One runner up Tiffani Faison, Season Two runner up Marcel Vigneron, Season Three winner  Hung Huynh, and Season Five chef Eugene “Gene” Villiatora.   

Althought the host site has not been officially named, the newly opened M Resort in Henderson, Nevada is rumored to be the site of the chef-on-chef competition.  

Other reports have Top Chef filming in Seattle, Washington.  However, it’s possible that both stories are true.  Bravo TV has announced both a “Top Chef Junior” and “Top Chef Master” series – spin-offs of the original TV show that targets a different caliber of culinary king and viewer. 

“Top Chef Master” will begin airing June 10 and will feature 24 prominent Las Vegas chefs, including Hubert Keller, Rick Moonen, Roy Yamaguchi and Ludo Lefebvre.

Keller has Fleur de Lys restaurants in San Francisco, his home, and at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas; Moonen co-owns rick Moonen’s RM Seafood at Mandalay Bay; Yamaguchi has two Roy’s Restaurants in Las Vegas and Lefebvre recently left Lavo at The Palazzo in Las Vegas to open Ludo Bites in Los Angeles.
