It's too bad Tom Gorman went to the Bellagio Sunday brunch ("In Sin City, a Spot Worth Coveting," Weekend Escape, April 7). If he had stayed at the Palms and enjoyed Sunday brunch at the newly opened Garduno's restaurant in the hotel, he would have enjoyed the finest chile verde and sopaipillas west of New Mexico. We have driven to Albuquerque just for a "Garduno's fix," and now it is just a few hours away. JANA GUEST Ridgecrest

I'm a lot less tolerant of bad service, improper food preparation and lack of hot water than Times staff writer Tom Gorman appears to be ["Lake Las Vegas, Sin City's Alter Ego," Oct. 19]. That 45-minute late souffle would neither have been waited for nor eaten nor paid for. The rock-hard over-medium eggs would have been sent back in a New York minute. The lack of hot water for the hotel whirlpool would have been publicly mentioned at the front desk. The water taxi would have been the last straw.

Rod Laver and Ross Case led Australia to a 5-2 victory over the United States in Laver's best-of-seven-match Legends Cup Sunday. Australia had led, 2-1, after Saturday's competition.
