It’s national Lasagna Day!

29 Jul

It’s National Gain Weight Day! ha ha! That is what  I did this morning all in celebration of National Lasagna Day! The family-style Italian restaurant, Buca di Beppo, is offering FREE lasagna all day. Valid at any of the 87 Buca locations throughout the country, guests who purchase any Buca Small or Buca Large sized pasta or entrée will receive a free lunch-sized portion of lasagna.  Buca di Beppo lasagna is famous for its towering layers of lasagna noodles stuffed with homemade meat sauce and a combination of ricotta, mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheeses! It’s nine layers people! Do you hear me selling this food! We had a Lasagna eating contest today LIVE ON THE AIR and while I did pull out a secret weapon… I lost to a waitress that had mad eating skills! ha ha! So if your in the mood for some food…. hit up Bucca!

Detective Extreme Amy was busy all morning solving clues! The murder mystery dinner theater show  “Marriage Can be Murder” is celebrating ten years! The deadly show is the longest running dinner theater show on the strip. The entire cast was outside The Fitz this morning trying to figure who murdered who?!?  While the scene was a bit bloody…. the killer turned out to be an obsessed Fan of  Fox5’s Ted Pretty and Jason Feinberg! ha ha! It was so funny! A lot of viewers thought I was the killer! Come on people… do you really think I would do such a thing. 🙂 Check out the show. It is a lot of fun and full of surprises.

FOX5 AMBUSH Makeover!!!!

24 Jul
Hey Everyone! Check out my newest segment….called FOX5 Ambush Makeover! This morning I broke into a viewer’s home (with her husband’s help of course) and woke her up LIVE on the air with the surprise of her life!  Meet our first victim… Dawn Sabraw! She was nominated by her husband Scott to get a makeover. With the help of the FOX5 Pretty Police team…Dawn looked almost 15 years younger. The 38 year old grandma and mother of  four children really touched the hearts of  the staff at HAUTE SALON! They donated several hundred dollars to Dawn to help her son get new wheels for his wheel chair.   Dawn’s son was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.  She works several jobs, donates a lot of her time to the Salvation Army and other non-profits, which is just one of the many reasons why she deserved the makeover.  Dawn also has a myspace dedicated to mentoring and encouraging moms with kids who have special needs. Her husband Scott said Quote, “She works 24/7 and does it with a beautiful smile and no complaining! I don’t know how she does it!”   I want to send out a BIG thanks to the entire FOX5 Pretty Police Team… Thanks to Meg Marakas, Angelina and Rick Bowles, Christy Polichio, Octavio our fabulous make-up artist, Ashley Mcbeth, Ashlee Spotofora , and Tululah G for providing the clothing.  We’ll see you next month with our next Victim!! Watch out… I could be knocking down your door next!

OMG!!! Extreme Amy got her shop ON!!!

13 Jul

Hey ladies… I wanted to let you know about a little secret here in Vegas! I get a lot of e-mails from many women asking me where I get some of my clothes that I wear on the air.  While I love to shop on the strip there is another store that steals my heart here in Vegas! It’s called Patty’s Closet and the best part is…. there are three stores in the area! This weekend I completely got my shop on…to the extreme! It was like a “Patty’s Closet Saturday! I literally went to all three stores looking for the goods! What I love about this little hole in the wall boutique is that everyone is so friendly. The ambiance of all the stores are so cute. Everything in the store is unique and there is only a limited number of the styles of clothes so you won’t see another person wearing your  *new* shirt! ha ha! But… the best part is the PRICES! Everything is very affordable and perfectly priced! You will not feel like you over paid. I was very lucky to meet the owners Patty and her husband Juan and their story behind the creation of the stores makes you want to shop there even more.  There is nothing I like more than supporting non-chain shops whether it be a restaurant or in this case a clothing store.  What I love about this store is that everything is very FASHION FORWARD… there is not one item in the store that isn’t cute!  Here is the website for those of you who love to shop till you drop!  More importantly… stop by one of the stores… you will not be disappointed! If you want to become a fashionista…this store will do it! 🙂
