Lotus of Siam is preparing to open a second location while it’s still repairing its temporarily closed original space. The East Sahara Avenue restaurant was forced to close after portions of its ceiling caved in following a September rainstorm. While those repairs are expected to take a couple of months, a new space at 620 E. Flamingo Road will welcome customers as early as the first week of November. That location, in the building that once housed Roy’s Restaurant, will remain open later than the original, possibly as late as 2 a.m.

The party starts at 10 p.m., with the contest getting underway at 1 a.m.

Up for a challenge?
It’s football season, when bro’s seem to be perpetually challenging each other on all manner of things related to food and drink. Can you eat 75 hot wings in 60 minutes? If you decide to go for the challenge at The Still at The Mirage, you’d better be sure, because failure will cost you $99. Success will net, besides the free wings, your picture on the restaurant’s Bud Bud’s Wall of Fame and a prize package of undisclosed contents that we’re hoping will include an antacid.
