ALL OVER — Holy meat. Eater Vegas has its own share of The Five Days of Meat coverage. Look for interviews about why that Kobe beef you're eating is not true Kobe beef and the 240-day dry-aged beef at Carnevino, where to find extreme meats and iconic meat dishes in Vegas, a random assortment of meats on a stick along with the charcuteries of the city. Also find out about one of the oldest gourmet rooms in the city, Michael's at South Point, and some of Matt Hurley of Wolfgang Puck's Cut's favorite meat joints in town. Most importantly, you can vote for your favorite steakhouse in Las Vegas here.

VENETIAN — Word is out that Yardbird Southern Table & Bar is headed to Sin City, taking over the former Pinot Brasserie space. The 2012 James Beard Foundation semi-finalist out of Miami plans to serve up its Southern fare, including fried chicken, in early 2015.

HENDERSON — LYFE Kitchen expands to Las Vegas, opening its first vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and omnivore spot in The District at Green Valley Ranch. Yes, it has an herb wall.

VENETIAN — Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has a busy weekend up her sleeve, taking her first stab at comedy and hosting the World's Largest Bachelorette Party at Tao and Lavo. She talks about why she likes to go to buffets, whether she hits the nightclubs and why it bothers her when fans talk to her while she's eating.

NORTHWEST — You can't buy it, but the guys from Brew Dogs on the Esquire Network cooked up the world's most expensive beer with Tenaya Creek Brewery.
