When you think of a great Vegas buffet, chances are you think about the Bacchanal over at Caesar's Palace or Aria's awesome new buffet we plowed through earlier this year. What I WASN'T expecting was that Excalibur's buffet would be right up there, delivering a feast fit for a king. While the days of costumed knights and ladies is gone and so is the super kitschy medieval feast theme, what's replaced it is a super clean, light and airy dining room with an updated menu and easy navigation.

Like most guys, I lead a busy lifestyle and unfortunately that frequently means meals that aren't the most healthy. After all, it's easy to grab a burrito from the freezer and stick it in the microwave for a few minutes and call it lunch. In the past, I haven't been a fan of frozen meals but I decided to try the new LEAN CUISINE® Marketplace meals. These new offerings come in three categories that are much more upscale and designed for today's lifestyle: "Made With Organic Ingredients", "High Protein", and "Gluten Free". The days of being limited to salsbury steak and enchiladas are gone.

Ok, so I had some help but I think this is an AWESOME idea and it was super fun to try out. Essentially, each Hard Rock Cafe is participating in a celebration of different styles of hamburgers that are inspired by different awesome cities around the world. Different locations will have different selections from their list of 16 different burgers. Each of those burgers is inspired by a different city that hosts a Hard Rock Cafe location. 

Our collection included the Date Burger - Dubai, Java Lava Burger - Seattle, Schnitzel Burger - Cologne, and my favorite the Banh Mi Burger from Ho Chi Minh City.

Coke is one of my favorite brands because even though it has largely remained unchanged for more than 100 years it somehow still possesses that unique American feel. It's a confident drink that has maintained an incredible brand that elicits that feeling of comfort, warmth and friendship. So when I heard that they launched a new line of cans featuring "nicknames" instead of actual names, it got me excited.
