Out with Firefly, in with Nacho Daddy

A Tony Hsieh restaurant fave is opening a location on West Sahara, taking over the building that formerly housed Firefly.

11/20 Update: All the renovations are done and Nacho Daddy "Summerlin" at 9560 W. Sahara is set to open on Tuesday, November 25, 2014.

Sept. 25, 2014: The Firefly sign came off the building last week and the dumpster’s getting full at the new Nacho Daddy location near Summerlin (for all of you who think Sahara and Grand Canyon is Summerlin, it’s not—but it’s really close).  

One of Nacho Daddy’s signature items is a shot of tequila with a scorpion (the “world famous scorpion shot”), which tells me that I’ll be looking for a certain kind of lunch companion when I visit their establishment. (And by “certain kind,” I mean “easily talked into swallowing a scorpion.”)

Firefly’s location now is 3824 Paradise Road.

Are you a Nacho Daddy fan?

Vegas Pics – Mother Nature vs. I15

Last week, Mother Nature decided to take out  I15. After the water subsided, the trucks got to work.

On Monday, September 8, flash flooding demolished large parts of I15 north of Las Vegas. After the waters receded, crews from Las Vegas went to work rebuilding the roadway.

My hubby was among the many who worked long hours last week to repair the interstate. He managed to get this shot of the damaged road.

It reminded of something my dad used to say: “We have flood control. When it rains, the flood is in control.”

Monday’s  flooding was extensive in Southern Nevada, Arizona, and parts of Southern California. What kind of damage have you seen after last week’s floods?
