    Trips to Las Vegas:
    I see the ACG has a 2/1 Buffet at Arizona Charlie's on Boulder.
    Never been in that part of Vegas.
    Would need to take the bus.
    Which bus?
    Where would you catch it downtown?
    How much?
    Does the bus unload & load back up at a close spot to Ariz. Charlie's?

    Is the buffet decent?

    Looking to see a different part of Vegas and a little diversion from Dowtown.

    I know nothing about this casino, so if it would be a worthless trip, give me honest opinions.

    Thanks, Sue

    Trips to Las Vegas:
    You would take the BHX bus

    (not the HDX that one does not stop at Az Charlies but goes directly to Sahara and then to Nellis (Sam's Town)
    Or after July 7, directly to Sunset and then to Fiesta Henderson.)

    Normally, you would catch the bus on Ogden across from the new Downtown Grand but there has been construction there and when I was there in May the bus stop was temporarily moved to Carson.

    Here is what I wrote in May

    To get the HDX or BHX out of downtown (at least temporarily) go to the D pool corner (Carson and 4th) and kitty corner to it and down the block a bit on Carson is the pickup, marked by a cheezy yellow paper sign. There is no shelter so it can get hot. It runs about every 20 minutes but it is best to have a schedule in your pocket and go five minutes early rather than wait longer. Guys waited and watched from the shade of the Fremont parking garage and then jay walked across the street. This is a bad idea. Every time I go locals tell me about jay walking fines and they are pretty hefty. This trip I found out that if you step off the curb and look down the road to see if the bus is coming, you can be fined for "intended jaywalking." Because you might not have time to cross Carson with the light, I'd recommend waiting for the bus right at the stop.

    If you are at the stop and look over at the D, you see above the pool the huge poster of legs and high heels. Then directly across the street is a sign that says, "to Fremont parking".

    Remember it is only temporary and once the construction is done on Ogden I expect the stop will go back to right across from the Downtown Grand (old Lady Luck) where it was permanently moved from across the street from the Gold Spike.

    The dropoff on the way back to downtown is in the same spot, between the Gold Spike and the Cabana rooms.

    When you come back it will still drop you just past the El Cortez on Ogden.

    You can take any bus from the front of Binions to the BTC and then find the BHX there but it adds about 15 minutes to the trip because you are backtracking to catch the bus where it begins the route.

    I have not been to Arizona Charlie's in years so I can't comment on the casino or the meal, but I remember the place as very smoky.
