So part 2 of our Las Vegas journey starts with the end cap of night 3 which was going to the Peppermill at 2 in the morning. Now who does this? Well when you TripAdvisor or YELP anything food 24 hour in Vegas the Peppermill is #1.
It’s historic and legendary amongst Vegas locals. The exterior was a sight to be hold and the inside was even better. Be sure to check it out next time your in Las Vegas, it’s off the strip but worth it.
The Iconic Peppermill, since 1972.
Trees, booths, lights, sights and sounds of the Vegas nightlife crowd. After a long day of hanging out, walking, shows, the Peppermill was a comfort to say the least. The food was the best part, now you must get steak and eggs, DOH! It was simply the best.
2AM Steak & Eggs, yes please. NOM.

So my friends & I decided to go hit up Defcon, and check out Blackhat this year in Las Vegas and also hang out since one moved across the country. This was a totally slow time in Vegas and perfect weather. A lot of new restaurants, bars, things to check out since the last time I was in Vegas so come chill along in this 2 part blog post of our adventures.
Some real shitty Airport “smart bar” with crappy food.
Anyways read more to check out the start of our adventures in Las Vegas and catch a first class flight. =)
First landmark you see driving into Memphis
We begin yet another journey real close to Little Rock, AR which is the birthplace of Rock & Roll Memphis, TN. We drove the 2 hour drive and was a pleasant thoroughfare experience.
Though I hate rock, and I don’t give a shit about going to Elvis mansion. However one day I would like to check it out but it’s in the ghetto now and do not want to get shot. Come aboard this photographic journey of our hotel check in and to a top rated restaurant in Memphis, Flight. Also we end out the night at the largest Bass Pro shop!
Lobby at the River Inn of Harbor Town
Gluten Free Chic Fil Le Bun
This a late June catch up post to catch myself up at light speed ok, thanks. Each one of these could have been their own post but had to compile some to save some time. June is a wonderful month in Little Rock, very beautiful and a little hot. Not nearly as hot as Texas, the humidity is almost non existent here.
First up I tried the new Chic Fil Le gluten free bun that comes in it’s own wrapper that you probably should toast first at home, was a little chilly. It was decent, but I’d prefer an udi’s bun over that. I do enjoy their grilled chicken nuggets though.
Two Rivers Park Bridge
The Two Rivers Park Bridge is a pedestrian and bike bridge connected to Maumelle Park. The bridge is 1,368 feet long. It’s also a biotch to ride your bike over, but it’s a very clean bike ride and adventurous at that! Check it out and click read more. June Adventures!
Riding over the Two Rivers Park Bridge
Found this place on Yelp and was super curious as to what it’s image exactly was. Wasn’t boasting it self as a high-end steak house, nor a low end so had to give it a whirl.
Front of Butcher Shop
Butcher Shop is a huge building, with an open floor plan, kind of retro 90’s style which is cool, a lot of the older crowd enjoying themselves and an open kitchen towards the back.
Butcher Shop Menu
Our waitress at Butcher Shop was excellent, our food was decent, and a classic type place to enjoy a meal. This is a family restaurant that you could enjoy 5-6 days a week if you lived in the area and just wanted to enjoy some decent food and great service. Had the prime roasted beef which was tasty, and adding the sauce on top with a house salad and fully loaded baked potato. Tasty.
Prime Rib, Au Jus, Loaded Baked Potato NOM
I’ll be back. (Been back few times now)
Have to update everything I’ve eaten and I’ve already reviewed Ya-Ya’s but heres what we ate the last time there. NOM. So good still and amazingly gluten free friendly. It’s in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Worlds Largest Toy Museum?
Yes I think so let’s go. But first, breakfast at our hotel (which was the most pleasant experience of our stay).
Brunch at Chateau on the Lake (beautiful views, empty restaurant, but hey gluten free buns!)
Worlds Largest Toy Museum

So Silver Dollar city is:Silver Dollar City is a theme park in the US state of Missouri. Opened on May 1, 1960. The park is an 1880s-themed experience that fits Branson’s vision as a family-friendly vacation destination with down-home charm. Silver Dollar City’s operating season runs from mid-March until late December, with the park closed during the months of January and February.
So now you know, I read about this which is why another reason to come visit Branson, and we went when it was hot, I can only imagine what it’s going to be like in the colder months to go back and check it out. Before the park we stopped at a Craft mall right near our hotel which turned out to be a bunch of old people shit and sewn together homemade junk crap. Like Hobby Lobby type crap, but they had a grill in the back so we grubbed lunch.
Pickin Porch Grill (sounds racist) No gluten free bun but fresh stuff and tasted good.
Let’s goto Silver Dollar City! Hit read more
So me Mimi has been recommending hitting up Branson, Missouri forever and I know it’s an older people town but since collecting antiques I thought it would be an excellent idea. Also I found they have the world’s largest toy museum so yes let’s go. First night we drove in from Little Rock which is about a 3 hour drive and stopped at few aniqtue spots (all overpriced) and cruised through the Ozarks. Waterfalls on the side of the road were awesome.
This is what part of the drive looked like.
View from our hotel Chateau on the Lake after checking in. (snazzy hotel but shit service, I mean shit service).
