    So much truth in this statement!

    We will be in LV again in March.
    So what's different for THIS trip?
    • My attitude. I'm not so in love with Vegas anymore that I will overlook details like prices, service and "value" perceived or otherwise.
    • Budget, low/no roll. 80% NGO. seriously, gambling 2 out of 10 days.
    • No "high end" restaurants. It's all fast, casual, HH or buffets this trip.

    Like you said above, we were tired of the crappy service $60 lunches or $100 dinners that were just burgers or a sandwich and fries.
    Why egregiously overpay for sub-par cafe food?
    At least with a buffet it's usually fast & inexpensive. Plus there's usually a decent variety.

    I'll take a low-roller knee on this trip.

    That was a good report, lots of detail and variety. I may be one of the few VMBers who has never eaten at Peppermill or played Sigma Derby so enjoyed seeing both! Thanks for sharing.
     
    Fingers crossed - it's been almost a year

    Great report and pictures. Agree with you on the escalating food prices, it's insane for regular, nothing special food. But you can still find cheaper options at certain places. Still love Vegas though!! And that phone number is all over the Strip. I saw it numerous times walking Las Vegas Blvd. a few week ago.
