Pocket Aces Dinner
You'd better have pocket aces if you want to attend this pricey dinner affair. Friday August 6, at Sancuary on Camelback Mountain Chef Beau MacMillan will be joined by Akira Back, a chef at Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Lounge at Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas for the Pocket Aces Dinner, part of a continuing guest chef dinner and lunch series. Guests have the opportunity to watch the preparation of the 12-course Asian-American meal and ask the chefs questions. Highlights of the massive menu include Foie Gras, Miso Cod, Smoked Octopus and Tuna Pizza. The meal is, of course, paired with wine or cocktails. All this for only $195 plus tax and gratuity.

Lobster Pot Pie
We've had this recipe bookmarked since February and have been drooling over it for months. We imagine sticking a fork into the golden, flaky pie crust and savoring the buttery lobster and tender vegetables swimming in a warm creamy broth. One day we'll have the time and money to invest into a meal like this one, but until then, it makes a good fantasy: Lobster Pot Pie. Indulge!
