There’s a time, sometimes, in the middle of the night when you really don’t even know the time. But it feels like your time − the crowds have thinned and the planned portion of the night is over. The clock seems to be telling you that morning is coming soon – so why sleep now? But it’s been some number of hours since dinner and it’ll be some number of hours until breakfast. And you’re hungry. Crazy hungry. Food needs to happen. Now.
It takes time to hunt down the perfect late-night meal in a new city. Here’s a guide that will save you valuable chow time.
You’re with a big, close-friends group. You don’t mind sharing with these peeps because you know you can fight for what you want. But, honestly, you don’t care what you eat. You all know you’re gonna pass out after, wake up in a couple hours, and eat it cold for breakfast.
Tacos are a simple situation. You had dinner before. But then you had tequila. And now you need tacos.
It’s a specific kind of late-night hunger. You went to a concert or live event (somewhere that made you move a lot). Maybe you ate before, but you’ve worked up a burger-sized appetite. This differs from a pizza hunger because you’re not in the mood to share.
Sometimes the details don’t matter. You just need a lot of food. You want options and portions. No restrictions. No questions.
You were out late, but other than that, it’s been a pretty mellow night. Maybe it’s a first date and you don’t want it to end. Or maybe you’ve been catching up with an old friend. These places give you a classy atmosphere (at least by 3:30 a.m. standards).
It may be late. But this is Vegas. There are plenty of places to get food where and when you need it. Go, eat, and enjoy the hours that most of us don’t get to!
