Las Vegas Restaurants Move Over, Flavor Flav is in the House

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Las Vegas flavor-flav-fried-chickenLegendary and notoriously, notorious rapper, Flavor Flav is indeed working up the final paperwork on placing one oh his Flavor Flav’s Fried Chicken Restaurants in the heart of Las Vegas.  Executives from the Las Vegas Riviera Casino are in discussions with Flav about featuring his chicken franchise inside the hotel.  There are still some details to work out, but it looks like Flavor Flav will have his restaurant in Las Vegas this year.

Flavor Flav’s Fried Chicken’s corporate location is in Iowa.  Featuring the restaurant in such a predominant Vegas hotel could spawn larger national growth for the hop-hop star that is a man of many talents.  Flavor Flav, in an article on CNN was quoted as saying, “My chicken ain’t no joke. I ain’t scared to go up against the Colonel, tastewise,”   Flavor Flav is a New York Native and attended cooking school in the seventies.
