    I have spent enough on chips that I now have the award for 2 free lunch buffets to be used Monday-FRIDAY. Lunch is until 3 and the gourmet dinner (with lobster) starts at 3. If I get there around 2:45, cash in myvegas for the 2 lunch buffets, can I stay through the dinner conversion and get the lobster?

    The may not put a lot of the good dinner items out right at the time of the switchover, but it's a good plan if there is no line at that time to get in.

    Depends on how many other "like minded" people like you will be standing in line.
     
    A quick one day in-n-out to collect Silver Strikes
    Lake Tahoe for late CNY. Hope it isn't snowed out like last year!

    Weekday gourmet dinner buffet with lobster? Is this new? I just had a tuesday dinner buffet at Aria end of April; and it had pretty bad seafood selection, crab legs, shrimp, and mussels were all mixed up and looking very unappetizing.

    They usually put out the premium dinner items around 4

    I've never heard of a buffet putting so-called premium items out at a later time. If dinner starts at a certain time, that is when the switchover is made.

    We did this years ago at the Bellagio buffet. We slow played it for a bit as it took them about 15-30 minutes after the switchover to get the crab legs and other dinner only items out.

    You must have snagged it at the right time. I looked and it is not available. Good eating.
    But as said before, you might have to wait in line for a long time, past the dinner start time.
    Anyone know what happens then?
