Good eats in Vegas. Posted on 07/15/2002.

Just spent a long weekend in Vegas. I'll write about it more later, but wanted to let y'all now that I've found my way to happy dining in Sin City -- The Bellagio's Buffet. $25-$31 (depending on the night) means it's not cheap, but the selections are very good--for the price, you're guaranteed to actually enjoy the food you're eating, instead of scarfing it down for the sake of sustenance. And... Kobe beef! Happy massaged cows in all their rich buttery goodness! All you can eat! Where else can you say that?

The Paris buffet is also worthi visiting, especially for the cheeses and pastry. And if you're a fan of seafood, be sure to check out the Rio seafood buffet the next time you're in town. Mmmmmm....

write up your advance for design reports already... my Vegas eating memories are vague at best... drinking stange conctails from glasses shaped like sarcophagi and lookin' sharp seemed more important at the time.

The buffets sound delish, albeit a bit more then I like to spend... but getting my money's worth has had a hefty result for me..
My fantasy is to lose down to 100 pounds and eat my way across the country... starting with the Kobe beef,(which I've never had) and seafood buffets. (does that include lobster I hope?)
After, possibily ending with a decent weight, and well satisified.. Or even more an addict to the foods I already desire, and to foods I would then add to my list of favorites.. in quanities I don't need.. Oh well....
Happy eating all!!
