Vegas Food Special with Bill Barnwell

At long last, we were joined by enemy friend of the pod Bill Barnwell. ESPN’s NFL senior writer limited it to three football questions, so he met up with Kevin in Las Vegas to discuss the evolution of the Vegas food scene. Football talk starts around the 29-minute mark. By the way, after this pod we went to Block 16 at the Cosmopolitan and the Pok Pok wings were much better than my previous visit.
