… and a bottle of Everclear at the bar at B&B Ristorante at the Venetian … (how would Food Network feel knowing their Iron Chef Mario Batali’s restaurant features, er, grain alcohol?)

But perhaps the most telling was the airport – where for $4 more, you can get a shot to go with your beer at the airport bar.  Or the fact that the cab driver who drove us told us how she got the name and number for a “gal, Annie, right here in Las Vegas who rescues ….”  Wait for it.
