You're sitting at your desk thinking, "I need to talk to Zeke Quezada today!" Get in line behind my wife, who just so happens to forget that if she sent me an E-mail maybe I would respond. You're headed to Las Vegas and you are just not sure about a thing or two. No worries, drop me a note and I'll try to help you. If I don't get back immediately, don't take it personally, the in-box can get a little thick with questions and I can only type with one hand if I'm at a restaurant stuffing my face and abusing my liver.

For 20 years I have traveled with a sense of purpose. I'm looking for the experience others never even hear about. From 3 star Michelin restaurants to lolo's on the beach in Sint Maarten I've been fortunate to try food all over the world. I have had the opportunity to dive the Great Barrier Reef, ski the Canadian Rockies, sail the Caribbean and fish in the Sea of Cortez. I've borrowed towels and coat hangers in 5 Star hotel and slept with the insects in thatched roof beach bures from Belize to Bora Bora. Ultimately, I do it all to have a story to tell. There is nothing quite like a good travel story.

My attitude when it comes to travel? A simple word, adventure. In Las Vegas that could mean 48 hours with no sleep and a great run at the craps table. It could also mean a nice dinner with someone special and the time of your life! Carpe Diem!

I eat, I drink and I try not to spend too much money. My newest book "Restaurants in Las Vegas: The Best for Less" is available from Amazon and you can have it on your mobile phone, iPad, Kindle or on your computer.
