While I was having a relaxing Sunday evening, licking my wounds from a brutal weekend of college and NFL parlays, I heard a disturbing call into a favorite Las Vegas podcast – Five Hundy By Midnight. I may have misheard the caller; but I can swear that the person said:
THERE IS NOWHERE TO GET A CUP OF COFFEE AT THE PALAZZO
This sent me into a frenzy trying to find out if this is true. Suddenly my chill night of podcasts and NFL highlights went away and my laptop and iPhone got fired up.
Before I get into anything else:
THERE ARE PLACES TO GET COFFEE AT BOTH PALAZZO AND VENETIAN
I’ll be staying at the Palazzo on my next trip to Las Vegas and I would not stay at a hotel that didn’t have a coffee shop. Starbucks, Coffee Bean, Dunkin Donuts, whatever. After throwing the question out to my twitter folks and pulling up The Palazzo website I found that there are multiple locations. Whew!
There is a Coffee Bean at each hotel. This is a west coast staple with good coffee. There is also an illy location called espressamente illy at Palazzo. There’s an illy location at the Borgata and Harrah’s in Atlantic City. The coffee is nice, but add some espresso and you are rocking!
After about 15 minutes my nerves were calmed, but now I feel like I’m jacked up on Mountain Dew…like the kids from “Talladega Nights.” I’m going to chill out for the night.
