Golden Nugget's Cafe Closed For Grossness
Good thing there's lots of options for eats in Downtown Vegas with more on the horizon (just check the right of your screen) because one just fell off the list -- Golden Nugget's 24/7 Carson Street Cafe. Not that it was actually on the list. But, it could have been added at the last minute. Maybe. But, now that ain't happening.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that city health officials closed the cafe down on Tuesday, as well as the employee dining room, "for numerous code violations including pest infestation." Pest infestation? We don't even want to know what exactly is meant by that. Ok, we actually, do want to know, but it wasn't reported. If we hear, we'll share. Right now, we're picturing some type of Hoarders situation. We knew we shouldn't have watched that marathon.
Update: The local ABC affiliate, KTNV, reports roaches and fruit flies are to blame. As in, "whole families of roaches." Gag. And, apparently, a third restaurant was closed as well, Lillie's Asian Cuisine. It shares a kitchen with Carson Street.
