S3E3 - Why Representation Matters in Hospitality
Celebrating Black History Month Do you ever feel like other people are trying too hard to categorize you? Maybe it's by your race or sexual identity, or even your birthplace? When entrepreneur Ryan Brown entered the hospitality business, she wanted everyone to just see her as a hard worker, someone striving to be a badass business person. She tells Chefs Lorraine Moss and Louiie Victa she now realizes that even though these are important goals, it's also important to be a black female role model because representation matters. Brown sees her family's Downtown Las Vegas bar, Classic Jewel, as their own lane of activism, a place where you can feel safe no matter who you are, a place to enjoy a cocktail and hookah, or even attend a community or political event. Classic Jewel has hosted President Joe Biden. Hear how she made that happen and why she thinks one day, it'll also host fellow sorority member, Vice President Kamala Harris.

Tamales & Familia Merry Christmas family! Feliz Navidad. Happy Hanukkah. Have you ever had a dream that took years to accomplish, but kicked into high gear after one BIG life event?

S2E15 - A Pizzaiolo & That's Enough - John Arena
John Arena keeps an old note inside his favorite pizza book. It reads "Sono un Pizzaiolo, e basta!" It translates to "I'm a Pizzaiolo, and that's enough!" The pizza maker is co-owner of Metro Pizza in Las Vegas, a joint that harks back to a time of mobsters and classic crooners. In Vegas, he's thought of affectionately as "The godfather of pizza" or as Chef Dan Krohmer calls him "pizza Yoda"; interestingly, he may be known better outside of the city than in his own neighborhood. A member of America's number one pizza team, "World Pizza Champions," Arena became a pizza professor when he started teaching a class at UNLV Hospitality on the "History and Culture of Pizza." In this podcast, he shares with Chefs Lorraine Moss and Louiie Victa the origins of pizza around the globe from Egypt to Italy to the United States. The New Yorker explains why ANYONE should be able to express themselves by making pie whatever way they choose (including with pineapples and/or Ranch dressing).

This is a rare, raw, and thought-provoking conversation with one of the premier pizzaiolos in the country.
