Evolution Las Vegas kicks off on April 18 at the new Caesars Forum Convention Center behind The Linq Promenade. The event, a collaboration between Caesars Entertainment and Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits of Nevada, honors celebrity chef Bobby Flay with the Dom Perignon Award of Excellence, while the event itself donates a portion of the proceeds toward scholarships for students of the UNLV William F. Harrah College of Hospitality. Tickets start at $150 per person. EaterWire]
