Authors Laury Bakie and John Bakie will be coming to Amarillo December 9th and 10th for a number of food focused book signing events.

Known as the couple that ate 750 meals in Las Vegas, Laury and John Bakie are seasoned food writers who have just taken on Las Vegas to give travelers worthy advice and foodies a jaw-dropping look at dining in America. Their book, titled The World of Las Vegas Dining, has been called “The Coffee Table Book of the Year” and features the most influential collection of celebrity chefs ever put together. The book also has food drama portrayed in over 700 photographs. Las Vegas being all the rage with world famous chefs makes their book the most interesting restaurant book possibly ever published. Its enticing photography gives the foodie something to savor at every turn of the page.

John Bakie passionately admits their two year food marathon in Las Vegas has been replaced with a book tour that resembles a traveling Las Vegas party.“We go city to city meeting wonderful people all over America and celebrate with them the enjoyment of food at great restaurants all across the country. The support we have received by the restaurant community around our country is heartwarming. Being welcomed by so many restaurants has turned our book tour into one big celebration of dining in America. We are so thankful, after all the hard work we put in, to be given this opportunity around the country to share our book and honor an industry that makes so many millions of people happy every day.”

You can meet the Bakies and purchase a copy of their extraordinary book at three different events taking place in Amarillo. On Friday, they will be sharing stories and talking with people about their Las Vegas experiences at a book signing at Ohms Cafe located at 619 S. Tyler Street. Then on Saturday Laury and John Bakie will be at Hastings Flagship store at 2020 South Georgia Street signing their book from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM. On Saturday evening they will be at Amarillo’s premier steakhouse Embers, located at 2721 Virginia Circle, for another celebration signing their book from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. With time still left for some holiday shopping The World of Las Vegas Dining is going to make food enthusiasts very happy and certainly make anyone who travels to Las Vegas extremely well prepared to make the most of the city’s myriad of restaurants.
