Culinary lava lamp Guy Fieri's Las Vegas restaurant Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar opened back in April, and on the ridiculous menu is a dessert called "Guy's Cheesecake Challenge." It's "a huge mountain of cheesecake topped with potato chips, pretzels + hot fudge." Writes Andrew Kiraly over at KNPR:
