Miss America 2010

Miss America 2010

Miss America contestant’s filled one of the dining rooms of Buca di Beppo at 412 East Flamingo Ave, Las Vegas to the delight of all the people having dinner there. It was so special to spend a few hours with the 53 contestants and to see the joy and happiness they were all displaying. All the Miss America hopefuls were full of laughter and smiles and all were so beautiful. It was their once in a lifetime moment of being in the Miss America Pageant.

The contestants made a special appearance to unveil Buca di Beppo’s new ice cream sundae which will be added to the menu next month. They all took turns making the huge sundae with Chef Ryan Smith and they couldn’t wait to eat the sundae after they made it.
Miss Nevada, Christina Keegan and Miss New Jersey, Ashley Shaffer enjoyed working with Chef Ryan putting the finishing touches on top.

Equally excited were all the other contestants as they all came up to be part of the sundae making. I am happy to report that they all ate the sundae and licked the spoons afterwards. (MissRhodeIsland, Ryan, MissTexas)

Miss New Jersey, Ashley Shaffer, 22, is from Perrineville NJ and she said she has wanted to be Miss America since she was five years old. Ashley went to Atlantic City each year to see the parade on the boardwalk and she has dreamed of this moment since then. I think it was many a young girls dream to be Miss America. Ashley’s platform is on enhancing children’s health through education and support. (Ashley Shaffer) (video) (video)

I have to compliment the chefs and everyone associated with Buca di Beppo for the great food and the hospitality. I definitely am going back to the restaurant and I will be bringing my friends and family.
