    So good to have that confirmed! Hopefully the lines won't be too long when I'm there.

    I think @bubbakitty and @Joe could add to this.

    All I “heard” is it will be much more expensive compared to the buffet (which was cheap) and less labor intensive. Doesn’t narrow it down much but in a month or so we’ll know for sure.
     
    Tirement party over again…..poor thing.

    Anytime they use the word “experience” it’s either going to cost more money or the experience is comparable to a visit to the proctologist. Remember CET’s “parking experience”?

    Music to the ears of many I'm sure. Not a buffet person myself, but every stay there I do the breakfast buffet at least once.

    That's also along the same lines I heard from a manager back in June.

    It seems like many buffets, cafes, and major eateries don't seem to open for dinner or they are open only on certain days.

    Is it a problem for Vegas visitors as to where to have dinner daily? Pre-covid times people would eat a light snack during lunch just to tie them in before dinner.

    Maybe now it is the opposite. Eat a hearty midday meal then a light snack at dinnertime.

    When they use that term "experience", it makes me feel warm and fuzzy. and nauseous.

    I think anyone who goes there now really needs to pay attention to hours. A lot of things aren't open the way they used to be and a lot of things might close early due to staffing. Restaurants are busy around the clock there right now.

    Despite being disagreed with in a similar post, you can have enjoyable meals without the waiting and beat the lines if you look around, ask around, and use some street smarts. Places that are under the radar or somewhat out of the way are not as busy. I was in LV for the better part of last week and the only annoyingly-long line was at a food court! I noticed a number of additional places that had immediate seating. The one buffet I did try had a line, but it moved right along.

    If this was something I could bet on, I'd put $5 on No.

    perhaps a military or senior citizen discount?
    the price of the brunch is double the price of the old breakfast buffet

    My guess is that using the term experience, means this won't be grandma's buffet. The pricing tells me they mean business, spelled b-i-d-n-e-s-s-! The days of the buffet being a loss leader are probably history.

    I'll be curious to hear members evaluation of the buffet "Experience" with new pricing. I used to stop in a couple of times every trip for breakfast, but at nineteen bucks a pop I can do that elsewhere.
