SHOT Show 2012: After Hours-It’s Time To Eat In Vegas

Okay, I know this blog posting has absolutely nothing to do with the outdoors, hunting or fishing.   But as a public service to my fellow gastronomically challenged peers heading to the SHOT Show in one week, here’s a listing of some recommended Las Vegas dining establishments you might want to check out.   Much of this list was compiled courtesy of, while bits and pieces were also distilled from other sources on the web, as well as my past personal experiences.

Aside from seeing all the great products at the tradeshow, one of the other important elements of SHOT is winding down after a long, productive day.   Thankfully, Las Vegas has a multitude of great dining and lounging experiences to finish out the perfect day.

If you have any additional suggestions on other great places to try out, please leave them in the comments section below.   Otherwise, enjoy the list.Buffet
