Mix 94.1’s Bite of Las Vegas celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. Nevada’s largest food and music festival and features more than 45 of Las Vegas’ restaurants on-site in decorated booths. “Bite of Las Vegas” restaurants compete for the best decorated booth on-site as well as nine different “Best Bite” food categories that are judged by The International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Las Vegas.
RBR-TVBR observation: Yet another good example of CBS Radio Las Vegas tying in sponsors and venues for a major local event—NTR on a grand scale. Other prime examples can be found with its Alternative X107.5 holding “Dave and Mahoney’s Beer and BBQ Bash” and the Las Vegas Ink’d Xpo – “Chopped, Screwed and Tattoo’d.” With the economy down as it is in that market, these casino-hotels are probably loving the chance to get locals spending money there.
