Why InfoComm 2022 Attendees Should Check It Out: The Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay has been around a while, having been one of the first upscale burger restaurants in Las Vegas—and it continues to serve delicious burgers, fries, and shakes.

Why InfoComm 2022 Attendees Should Check It Out: Spanish Tapas. YUM. Both Firefly locations are conveniently located, yet off the crowded Las Vegas strip. They are energetic and fun with a modern aesthetic—perfect for a casual night out with #AVTweeps or a more professional dinner with clients. But the best part is the menu, which offeris unique, diverse, and freshly prepared small plates options. You don’t have to commit to a single entrée; sharing is caring, after all.

Whether you need post-drinking sustenance or a final meal before hitting the road out of town, you can never go wrong with a Double-Double and Animal Fries. There are two convenient locations off Tropicana Ave., on the way to either Harry Reid International Airport or the 15-South back to L.A. Enjoy! Oh … and take a local with you for tips on ordering from the secret menu.

Why InfoComm 2022 Attendees Should Check It Out: Being from SoCal, I have visited Vegas countless times. I like to find hidden gems off the strip. If you want some good Mexican food and margaritas without breaking the bank, you must try this place. I love ceviche and their Ceviche de Camaron is really good. For an entrée, either the carnitas or the carne asada. They have the best coconut margarita to wash it all down. Cheers!

Why InfoComm 2022 Attendees Should Check It Out: Cleveland knows BBQ! Slightly off the strip, nestled inside the Palms Casino, lies one of Vegas’ best BBQ spots. Those who have been to Cleveland know about Mabel’s (owned by the infamous Michael Symon), and this outpost delivers the same mouth-watering, finger-licking experience. Go for the brisket, stay for the ribs and grab a pint of good brew.

Why InfoComm 2022 Attendees Should Check It Out: A bakery that began in NYC, Milk Bar is a staple in my life.

Why InfoComm 2022 Attendees Should Check It Out: Besides the adorable décor (Egg chairs! Happy egg emojis!), Sun’s Out Buns Out serves up savory egg sandwiches and fries that are the perfect antidote after a long night out. Try their short rib egg sandwich with spicy mayo or my fave, the furikake fries.

Why InfoComm 2022 Attendees Should Check It Out: While there are so many amazing restaurants with amazing chefs and food, the setting of Trevi is quaint, yet also impressive. Nested in the shops at Caesars, you have an Italian café feel without being too much. The food is delicious and it is a great place to unwind with industry friends or clients do some people watching and enjoy the feeling of sitting outside—while you’re actually indoors.
