    What Blasphemy, no Buffets on a CST trip report?? That just can't be possible ...
    Let's just take a few moments to remember some of my favorite Buffets foods like: Endless Seafood, Tandoori Chicken, Seafood Bouillabaisse, and all of these desserts ...

    Now to move to the future, yes I'm heading to Vegas in about 25 hours from now. This trip is mostly a Restaurant Week trip but it is an extremely early birthday trip for my sister. She has lots of work in July so she suggested to do it early. We'll be there until ...well I'm not sure how long yet. Right now it is set to 3 nights at Vdara but it's not concrete. There might be another day added if it is a good trip. Lots of stuff on this trip.

    1. Bellagio Conservatory
    2. KA
    3. KA Backstage Tour
    4. Mat Franco
    5. MB Spa
    6. MJ One
    7. Moneyline VP Tournament
    8. Shark Reef
    9. Shopping @ Forum Shoppes, Linq Promenade, Miracle Mile
    10. Zumanity

    Food list includes (RW = Restaurant Week Menu):

    1. Buddy V's Ristorante (RW)
    2. Cafe Gelato
    3. Carnegie Deli
    4. Charlie Palmer Steak (RW)
    5. Five50 (RW)
    6. Milk
    7. Mon Ami Gabi (RW)
    8. Vdara Market
    9. Zuma (RW)

    Maybe more stuff too ... Tons of stuff to do but plenty of time to play some slots, especially Kronos. Still searching for my 5-Symbol trigger OR a full screen Kronos. I hope you enjoy this TR and if other members want to meet I can try to fit that in.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Good luck! I’d love to see a picture of a full screen of Kronos. Do it!

    The Ka backstage tour sounds interesting. Maybe you’ll get your buffet in if you add a day-it’s a good reason.

    Have fun and good luck!

    Me too, this is the closest I've ever gotten. Dated 2-21 last year.

    Yes, the KA backstage thing is free but it's only available at 12 and 12:30 p.m. on Tues or Sat. I'm going to try to fit that in on Tues.
    I just got a 2 Aria Buffet from MV so I got it as backup or for the extra day if needed.

    Let's just hope things go well, my sister will decide during the trip to stay another night or not. :)

    I don't know how I got tickets for MJ One as they were mostly sold out on 6/23 and 6/24. Nothing was available at all. And then all of a sudden these tickets became available for 6/23. I never get comped tickets so this is the best price I could find at $99 a ticket. The prices below are actual prices. Thanks to ~$50 of service/entertainment fees, it came out to about $253.

    Oh dear, I made a gigantic error in my itinerary.
    I forgot Charlie Palmer Steak was not open on Sundays. Now I'm trying to rearrange the schedule.
