Not sure how long this flavor will be available, but if you haven't try it, go Menchie's and try this yummy flavor before you miss it.Of course I couldn't refuse trying other flavors, so there are some other flavors of froyo under cinnabon froyo.. This was $3.92So I had $1.08 left on my gift card so I got one more froyo. This portion was around $1.10. This time I got cinnabon froyo with mochi, banana, and cinnamon roll pieces.http://www.menchies.com/

    I just received this nonstick silicon baking mat by Frazoni and I really love it. It really doesn't stick!The Frazoni Non-stick Silicone Baking Mat is great for baking. Basically, food does not stick to it. This means that cleaning after baking becomes very easy. It bakes more evenly, because the mat distributes the heat better than the baking pan alone. It also allows cooking healthier food, because no grease needs to be added just to avoid sticking. It saves money, because it lasts a long time, and no parchment paper or baking spray is needed anymore. It can also be used as a non-stick…

Steve Aoki's birthday was a big ol' throwdown (which is what's to be expected when you're famous for rafting over the crowd) at Hakkasan on Friday. Which had to take his mind off the fact that he's locked in a lawsuit with his late father's wife over the inheritance he and sister Devin fought to win. They're charging stepmother Keiko Aoki (and this pulpy family drama has been going on for years) is squandering the money they have in trust on…

More women have come out to say the Cos assaulted them (it's hard to figure how he had any time to actually write any comedy in the '60s and '70s), including Lou Ferrigno's wife, Carla, actress Louisa Moritz and Angela Leslie and Therese Serignese, who…

The afterparty was at Hyde, where Jeter was spotted chatting with Jessica Alba, who had the good fortune to date the greatest shortstop of our generation around 10 years ago. It probably had to be tough for her, letting Jeter slip away like that, then having to come face-to-face with a living reminder of your failures. She could've been there at Yankee Stadium, celebrating that improbable extra-innings walk-off against the Orioles. Instead, she was hanging…

    Experiencing the holidays in Las Vegas are unlike being anywhere else in the world.

The temperature might have something to do with it but beyond that Las Vegas is never really like any other city in America. There’s just always something different in the desert air.

    I’ve written about The Linq Hotel and its predecessor, The Quad, often this year (here and here) but that’s with good reason. Its inexpensive prices and center of the Vegas Strip location is great for anyone visiting Las Vegas. The property was previously called Imperial Palace and changed to The Quad a couple of years ago. Renovations of The Quad were done in a half mannered way. Much of the casino floor was renovated but the hotel rooms were still old and unappealing. Those $29 a day room rates could only keep people staying at The Quad for so long. Well, that changes as the…

    Before moving to Las Vegas I used to stick to the Vegas Strip and Downtown Vegas. That’s really what I wanted when I visited Las Vegas. I never rented a car until deciding to move here. I drove away from the touristy areas for the first time on my last visit as a tourist. It wasn’t as much of a great experience as much as it was an eye opening experience. I saw Las Vegas as a town for the first time. It became more than just hotels and casinos that I came to love so much. I always heard about how inexpensive things were off the Vegas Strip but I didn’t care. I just wanted to drop my…

    Martin Garrix finds time for raceway fun in spite of hectic schedule On the surface, Martin Garrix may not seem like your typical teen. After all, while most teens his age are spending most of their days studying in a classroom, the Dutch DJ/producer is probably in the studio working on his next hit single or taking over the booth at some of the hottest nightclubs in the world. But underneath his musical and artistic exterior, Martin Garrix is just like anyone else his age. And not surprisingly, he enjoys the same kinds of activities the average 18-year-old does. Like go-karting. “It’s…

    When it comes to putting on a show, Steve Aoki doesn’t do ordinary. Step into Hakkasan Las Vegas for one of his trademark Neon Future shows and expect nothing short of extraordinary. Steve Aoki works to make his events unique. The Hakkasan resident likes to separate himself from other artists through his level of fan involvement at his shows. When Aoki takes to the Hakkasan booth, champagne showers and inflatable rafts are just some of the sights you can expect to see during Aoki’s high-energy sets. You should also expect to eat cake. And no, that’s not some sort of metaphorical…

Additionally, you should be tipping drink servers so there’s going to be a cost. Still, we love getting “complementary” drinks. They add to the entertainment of being in a casino. The cost of a complimentary drink may seem less expensive on the surface…
