Famous Las Vegas Welcome Sign by WestCoast_Eden.

In Sin City, USA, where a thousand pretty women are waitin’ out there, there are even more restaurants. Try nearly three thousand.

Last year, one-fourth of the top grossing restaurants in America were located in Las Vegas.

Five-star restaurants. Gorgeous restaurants. Celebrity chef restaurants. Outrageously expensive restaurants. Restaurants with seatings excruciatingly difficult to snag.

But even here, where money exchanges hands constantly, the economic downturn is winning, and restaurants and their employees (by the thousands) are losing.

Earlier today, I tried an experiment. As a member of, the online restaurant reservation service, I attempted to make reservations at several swanky Las Vegas restaurants located on the Strip for tonight, just a few hours away.

Welcome to Kyla's Korner - Musings of a Mother

Kyla's Korner

By Jennifer Fischer

Welcome to Kyla’s Korner – Musings of a Mother.  I’m sure readers of our Barking Lot feature have been wondering why I write about dogs and DON’T have one but DON’T write about babies and DO have one.  Well, wonder no more.  I’ll be writing about both from now on.

As with the Barking Lot, my goals are to entertain, enlighten, inform and occasionally cause you to stop and think.  No major controversies on my blog.  I leave the heavy hitting to my blogger-extraordinaire journalistic husband.  Kyla’s Korner will be similar to The Barking Lot in that I will walk down memory lane occasionally, offer observations and opinions, highlight something in the news and yes, brag about our beautiful daughter Kyla.  Honestly, how could I NOT brag about this beautiful face?
