If you anticipate FOMO as a result of this weekend's Pebble Beach Food & Wine, you should probably book a trip to Vegas. For one, Vegas cures most cases of FOMO. But more importantly, Vegas Uncork'd by Bon Appétit, a four-day foodie extravaganza involving luncheons, dinners, tastings and demos from culinary heavyweights (Tom Colicchio, Paul Bartolotta and Michael Mina will all be there) goes down May 5th-8th.
The first thing that you might notice about SF chef Hubert Keller's new Burger Bar, situated directly below the Cheesecake Factory in Macy's, is the merchandise. There, behind the bar, a headless, legless, busty mannequin sports a tank top and bikini underwear, both emblazoned with a sparkly martini glass and the Burger Bar logo. Upon seeing that, I remembered that the first—the original—Burger Bar is located at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas (there's a second in St. Louis).
