Hash House Comes to Downtown

Mmm... breakfastes!

Although we’re still bummed about Firefly’s Plaza location closing, today’s announcement that Hash House a Go Go is taking over the hotel’s old buffet space is welcome news.

The new location is scheduled to open in early September to coincide with the freshly renovated Plaza’s reopening. For more details on how things are shaping up at Plaza, check out the interview Steve Friess conducted with CEO Tony Santo.



As we speculated on the podcast a few weeks ago, tasty tapas restaurant Firefly will not return when Plaza reopens later this year. In a Las Vegas Weekly article today, Steve Friess spills all of the dirt. It turns out the downtown crowd was just looking for a cheap view of Fremont Street.

The other two Firefly locations are still alive and well, and a third location is on the way. They’re a bit of a pain for us tourist shmucks who like to stick close to the Strip and Fremont Street. However, if you didn’t make it to the Plaza location during its short 18-month life, you may want to grab a cab and check one of them out.
