It was as if “The Chairman of the Board” Frank Sinatra was still alive and in fine voice. It’s truly uncanny how Bob Anderson can sound and look just like Ol’ Blue Eyes, the leader of The Rat Pack. Bob was a miraculous lookalike and soundalike. Vincent Falcone’s 32-piece live orchestra was flawless and amazing. People were singing and amazed by the stunning resemblance created after Bob’s two-hour-plus makeup session. The makeup transforming him into Sinatra is perfection.

Southern hospitality, fried chicken and waffles and down-home cooking made their way to Las Vegas with the opening of Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, a Miami import, at the Venetian Las Vegas. The most important thing to know: There are four types of fried chicken on the menu, including Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken that’s made using a recipe passed down from owner John Kunkel’s grandmother.

Southern hospitality—the words just go hand in hand. So why is Southern cooking (other than Louisiana-style offerings) so underrepresented in this hospitality-focused city? The South is a lot larger than Louisiana, and its food a lot broader than Cajun and Creole. That’s probably one reason those in the food and beverage community are so excited about the January 2 opening of Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in the Venetian space that formerly housed Pinot Brasserie.
