    I don’t usually pay attention to commercials but this one got to me. I congratulate you on not only overcoming your demons but starting a successful business for yourself! As a social work student stories like yours really speak to me and make me want to reach out and try harder to help others. I can’t wait to stop by the next time I’m in Vegas!

    I’ve been coming to E.A.T. For awile now. I love your place. Every time I eat there I say I’m going to eat something different! So far it hasn’t happened! I order the eggs and bacon and sourdough bread. At least my husband Jack has tried different things and loved everyone. I recommend your place to everyone. I saw your commercial for American Express and was truly touched. I’m so glad you made it. My son Paul was 30 when he overdosed. I love to hear when somebody lives and lives their dream . I see you help others too. I really am proud of you! Take care!

    Thank you! I have been sober almost two years and have started over at 32. I too lost a boyfriend to drugs and several jobs. I’m still rebuilding but am onto a new career in nursing. This commercial made me cry. I too have been given a second chance.
