The Treasures of Egypt will inspire our next adventure. From the early 20th Century we will find that pharaoh and farmer meet. You will also discover that connection between the Egyptians and beer. Explore the treasures while enjoying tray passed hors d’ oeuvres, culture, and nature. Our local favorite Valley Cheese and Wine will have some delicious artisan cheese and charcuterie tray, with some regionally produced cheeses during the social hour! We will then move to Heritage Park and dine at one long table with a talented jazz trio in the background as a seasoned brew master George Reisch from Anheuser Busch will educate us on how food and beer pair together.
The culinary creations will be prepared by executive chef Joe Koniski of the Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino. Four main courses and dessert will be paired with traditional beers and will consist of a taste of local, fresh and seasonal ingredients, served family style. Each experience is about four hours. There will be philanthropic donation made to the Las Vegas Natural History Museum supporting the cultural corridor in our community.

Executive Chef for the Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino – Chef Joe Koniski is a native of Steubenville, Ohio and has been a Las Vegas resident for the last twenty-two years. It was his move to our great city where his passion for the culinary arts flourished. In 1998, he was hired as Executive Chef of Café Bellagio and later joined the opening team of the Aladdin Hotel and Casino in August of 2000. After three years, he left the Aladdin to open the wildly successful NINE Fine Irishman. In 2005, he served as the Assistant Executive Chef at Treasure Island, and after one year, was promoted to Executive Chef of The Monte Carlo Resort & Casino.
Throughout his time in Las Vegas, Chef Joe has developed a philosophy about his food and his guests. “Don’t over think things; guests want great food, great service and a great experience. It’s our job to give them that.”
Colorado River Coffee Roasters in Boulder City, Nevada. “Micro-roasted” refers to coffee roasting processes in which the green beans are roasted in small batches to exact specifications so that the roasting can be fine-tuned for the specific bean, from batch to batch. The process is a craft tended by an artisan rather than a machine. Micro-roasted coffee is considered by many to be the best tasting coffee available on the retail market. The processes employed are designed to bring out the best of any coffee variety.
Bon Breads is dedicated exclusively to artisan breads. Each and every one of our recipes has been originally created and developed. All of our breads are made with raw materials such as unbleached or whole wheat or rye flour, salt, and water.
Gilcrease Orchard is located in the north end of Las Vegas. The orchard spans over 50 acres, with more than 6000 apple, pear and peach trees.
