I put this in another thread but felt it may be useful info here. I'd hate for someone to go there with the intention of dining at the buffet and it is closed. This was always a must stop for my wife and I. http://www.lasvegasadvisor.com/whatsnews.cfm#21171 From LVA "We just learned via an LVA reader (and confirmed with the property), that November 8 marks the last day for the Rio's Village Seafood Buffet, the only one of its kind in Las Vegas. As of that date, the seafood-only concept will be merged into the regular Carnival World Buffet and be available as a premium "upgrade" option for an as-yet undisclosed price. What's in store for the space currently occupied by the Seafood Buffet, which is located in the Masquerade Tower, also has yet to be announced."
