Obama speaks at UPS in Las Vegas
President Obama, who arrived in Las Vegas late Wednesday afternoon and was greeted by Mayor Carolyn Goodman at McCarran Airport, stayed at the Element Hotel in Summerlin on Wednesday night. The president ordered 12 pizzas and cannolis from Dom DeMarco’s Pizzeria & Bar for his staff and himself.
Dom DeMarco’s is a new restaurant that opened last month in Summerlin by pizza maker Dom DeMarco of the award-winning Di Fara’s in Brooklyn, NY. In addition to serving the pizza that has been an institution in New York for more than 45 years, the Summerlin location also serves salads, pasta, wine and 12 beers on tap.
Obama spoke at UPS South in Las Vegas this morning and is scheduled to depart for Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado around noon. Thanks to Richard Corey for his video of Obama’s speech (“It’s great to be back in Las Vegas!”) posted on YouTube.
