Road Trippin’ with Chef Scott Commings: Heading Back East to New York at Freedom Beat


Grab a Seat for Stop #4 on the Monthly Culinary Road Trip Dinner Series on Wednesday, June 7th  at Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino

LAS VEGAS – (May 16, 2017) – With three sold-out stops now crossed off the map, Chef Scott Commings brings a taste of New York to Freedom Beat at the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino on Wednesday, June 7th. After launching in March with a soulful stroll through the “Big Easy,” followed by an April stop in rustic Colorado and the May tour of his native state of Wisconsin, Chef Commings is excited to bring the eclectic cuisine of the city that never sleeps to Las Vegas.

Hosted on the first Wednesday of every month, this intimate dinner series (maximum of 25 guests) is designed to be family-style and interactive with Chef Commings taking control of the wheel for each monthly road trip. In honor of New York, this dinner spotlights the foods and drinks that remind Commings of one of the most assorted cookery’s in the U.S.

The New York menu will include deli-style favorites such as the Onion Bagel and Mini Reuben, the Italian classic Meatballs & Marinara, and of course no trip to “The Big Apple” is complete without an original slice of New York Style Pizza. Passengers along for the ride will be treated to a regional beer and cocktail and enjoy an encore dessert of Baked Alaska.

Unlike traditional dinner series, the Culinary Road Trip is designed for those who like good food, good music and great fun. Priced at only $35 per person, tickets for this delicious culinary journey are now available online at Eventbrite; event starts at 6:30 pm. Only 20-25 seats will be available for each culinary road trip and tickets are available at a first-come, first served basis. All guests will receive a Culinary Road Trip Passport – the more Road Trip cities you visit, the more great rewards and dining experiences you will receive for future visits to Freedom Beat.
