    I’d recommend L’Atelier at the MGM Grand. Unbelievable food and great ambience at the bar watching food being prepared! Great if you are solo.

    802/804 - some decent VP for reasonable stakes @ Aria. Near the Milf desk.

    Nice one! Save those dealt Aces for another game though! :bang:

    And 804 treats me like crap. My better hits have definitely been on 802.

    Damn, everything is packed! No room at the bar at Serrano or Sage. Fortunately, I managed to get a table in the Bardot bar area

    Considered it. But there are so many great options at Aria, I knew I’d find something good. And I didn’t want steak again. (Did I just say that?)

    I know it’s a sin but they have a great cheeseburger. I prefer that over the steaks there

    Disappointing about the buffet service. ARGH.

    And yes, you can split up the buffet coupons. A couple of times I used one coupon for the dinner buffet on one day and then the second one for breakfast the following morning.

    Since they are good for 24 hours only, it's marginally better to sign up for the slot tournament near the 3:30 pm deadline That way you have an opportunity to use them for dinner that day, or breakfast or lunch the following day until 3:30 pm.

    I was disappointed that the frisée salad was no longer on the menu...until I had the king crab Caesar. Wow so good.

    Unfortunately, they were out of the roasted chicken and the pork chop wasn’t quite as good as I remember it.

    Definitely adding Bardot to my list for next week, food looks outstanding.

    Good luck the rest of the way.

    Sorry for the lack of updates after dinner last night. But the gambling continued to be painful and not much of interest happened.

    I’m about to catch a ride to the airport so that’s it for the live portion of the report. I’ll try to add some details and food reviews when I get home.

    Thanks for following along!

    The King Crab Caesar looks delicious, @thecarve.:feedme: Are those fried capers scattered atop all that goodness?
    Looks like you packed quite a bit of good eating in there. Love it!
    Wishing you safe travels home and looking forward to your trip summary.
