  • Irish Black & Tan on St. Patrick’s Day
    We like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a big way here at the Beach.  It takes two PhD’s to put this special Black & Tan together.  Use a lager on the bottom and pour the Guinness on top.  It helps that one of the PhD’s is in chemical engineering.  He’s the one that came up with the spoon. photos by Carol Georgi Dr. Nielsen and...

  • Bellagio, Chinese New Year, & The Golden Pig
    Yes, I know the Bellagio is not exactly "off the strip," but the conservatory there is so fine and the fact that it costs nothing to meander in wonder and awe, makes it worth a spot on my blog. The Chinese New Year exhibit is so fun and whimsical it deserves special mention. I love the lyrical water-sprite fountain that frolics its way through the lush foliage...
