In the first episode of our MUNCHIES Guide to Las Vegas, host Braydon Szafranski—a pro skateboarder and Vegas native—kicks off our visit by showing us the side of town not often visited by the 40 million tourists who flock to Sin City every year.
If there’s one thing locals know best, it’s food. And in Vegas, food often comes with a side of T&A, so Braydon and a few friends head to their favorite strip club buffet at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club for a nice selection of chicken strips, dipping sauces, and of course, naked ladies.
Vegas locals also know that some of the best food and drinks are found off the Strip. Braydon visits Lotus of Siam, one of Las Vegas’ culinary gems, for arguably the best Thai food outside of Thailand, prepared by James Beard Award-winning chef Saipin Chutima.
To wash it all down, Braydon takes us downtown to check out some of the best bars—both old and new. We sample Hunter S. Thompson’s favorite bourbon at Atomic Liquors, try some dangerously delicious cocktails at Bin 702 at the Container Park, and get down with some boozy yoga at Velveteen Rabbit before a sugar-filled nightcap at O Face Doughnuts.
