Good Luck, Al Mancini
Al Mancini just posted that today is his last day after a decade at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Here are my thoughts and well wishes.
I just saw Al Mancini’s post that today is his last day after a decade at the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Al initially wrote about the music and nightclubs scene but in recent years has become — in my humble opinion — the most trusted food and restaurant writer in Las Vegas. I really enjoyed Al’s wide range of expertise, from taco stands to the finest haute cuisine in the world. Al wrote about both with equal expertise and passion.
It deserves a mention that writing for a broad audience, with severe limitations from a major news division on length and style and reference points is a far more challenging task than those of us who pen amateur “reviews” and can go off on tangents and spew whatever thoughts come to mind. Given Al was confined by strict journalistic standards, his content and writing voice were all the more impressive.
I believe next Al is going to do some podcasting and other media projects. I look forward to following those endeavors and wish him much success. Let me also thank Al for so many insightful articles on food and drink here in Las Vegas. Hopefully, he’ll continue to share those perspectives which make us all richer in knowledge and experience.
