    Usually the first day it's pretty early like 4:30 or 5:00 (6:30-7:00 home). Then gets later to around 7:00.

    First day usually early 4ish (6pm home). Then it's whenever we feel hungry but if I'm making reservations I do so for about 6/7pm. (Which is 8/9 home time) We eat early dinner at home 5pm ish. Kids get home from school at 4 and are starved so it's all I can do to hold them back an hour. So while in Vegas come around 3pm I'm already hungry lol

    Also we only usually do 2 meals in Vegas. An early lunch and dinner. Maybe a late evening snack but nothing big or sit down

    It's already erratic at home. If I work late, I may not get dinner until 9PM, but I try to eat before then. In Vegas, it depends on what I've eaten before as sometimes I do a big breakfast and no lunch, other times I do a breakfast and a bigger lunch. Sometimes I want dinner early and other times late. Either way, I am usually eating at off hours and avoiding those busy 7-9 hours.

    Between 6 and 7 both in Las Vegas and home, maybe a little earlier on our first night (usually buffet) when our stomachs are telling us it's 8 or 9 (we live in the Central time zone). We never eat later than that in Las Vegas because of the time change-makes it a little easier to adjust going either way. Neither of us do well with biorhythm changes of more than two hours.

    I don't have a set time at home honestly with my weird hours at the casino plus my Uber driving. I just eat when I am hungry, same in Vegas.

    If it's a solo trip, dinner is usually around 7/8 depending on if I'm hitting up a show or not at 9/9:30. I usually eat a large breakfast around 10/11, have a mid-day snack, and then a pretty big dinner.

    It depends on if I'm on business or pleasure, but really, in both cases, dining is subject to change depending on time place and circumstance. Many of my meal choices are driven by what others want or what others are willing to eat. If I'm totally alone, I'll almost always do breakfast, often but not always skip lunch, and have an early dinner before the crowd hits. If I'm dining with clients, they usually call the shots.

    I guess in Vegas it also depends where you eat and when you can get in. I've wanted to eat at 6 and couldn't get a table until 8.

    Typically later in Vegas. If I have a reservation, it's usually after 8:00. If I'm by myself, it's usually after my gambling session for the night which might be as late as 2:00AM. At home dinnertime is all over the place, usually before 8:00, but occasionally as late as 10:00.

    I usually don't eat dinner (supper in our neck of the woods) at home--normally just a breakfast and lunch guy.
    When in Vegas my wife sleeps in so it's no breakfast, 1:00 lunch, and 8:00 dinner.

    When I'm drinking (which is pretty much wakeup to pass out in Vegas) I'm really bad about eating, so even though I go solo I still make reservations so it more or less forces me to eat. Normally it's early-ish in the night so I can avoid the prime dinner time crowds and get on about my night w/o having to break it up in the middle. Usually between 5-6p. At home it's usually 6-6:30p so no big difference.

    I have an 8p reservation on this trip though (want to hit Foundation Room and Skyfall at sundown) for Tender at Luxor, if I get there early I'll just tell the hostess I'm cancelling my reservation and sit at the bar. The beauty of traveling solo.

    Unless I'm meeting family or friends for dinner somewhere, I've often been guilty of losing track of time to the point I don't know if it's day or night.
    Not unusual for me to finally get back to the room at 3 am and realize I hadn't eaten since breakfast. Unless of course, the olives from the martinis count lol.
