Re: CCC..... I might be able to since Jamie had some questions he wanted to ask. But I'm not 100% sure

Wes, when do you get back?
I haven't been to the one at the Aria, but the Wynn buffet is the best Vegas buffet I've ever been to, hands down. No other buffet even comes close.

And my quarter ends near the end of March, I think.

Judging from the pictures on Yelp, the buffet @ Aria doesn't look that great. It actually looks like they are copying a lot of things from the Wynn (crab legs...). I could be wrong, though.

I'm not a big wine drinker. Unlimited wine doesn't sound too appealing - it's probably box wine lol.

Sorry, jumping in the middle, where and when are you going to somewhere? Lol

And when are we going to talk Sean? Can you come to CCC next week?

The Mophie Juice Pack is the best one on the market. Frm everyone I know who uses those cases with batts in them.

Neither. The once a week Sterling brunch buffet at Bally's is the best. Black Caviar, Lobster Tails, King Crab Legs, Sushi Chef, Filet Mignon, Lamb, Unlimited Champagne from a 40$ Champagne bottle.


Not cheap though. About 90$ a person but worth it.

I need to look into that. It sounds like a good deal. The Wynn buffet is pretty close to $90, iirc.

I could easily kill a bottle of champagne so that's half of my bill right there lol. Granted, I'm sure I'll be feeling it, but isn't that part of being in Vegas?

Last May I went to Vegas on my schools dime basically, due to that my friend and I ended up hitting all the Vegas buffets lol. Afterwords we didn't want to hear the word Buffet for atleast a few months. I think when we went to the Wynn it was 40-50$ for the buffet so wasn't anywhere near 90$. But it was the 2nd best one out of all the ones we went to after the Sterling Brunch Buffet.

It's easily worth it if you just drink enough Champagne and eat enough Black Caviar. I believe the price of Black Caviar is something like 300$ per pound. The lobster tails / Sashimi / crab claws & legs / Filet Mignon was good as well.

Rio Seafood Buffet. won Vegas' best buffet literally like 8 years. Voted BY THE LOCALS. And if you want some good local spots to hit, let me know. I used to hit vegas, literally once a week. even if it was only for 5-6 hours then drive back to Cali.

Wynn is probably the best right now though. M resort is pretty good from what i've heard but away from main strip.

Wes - as for the juice pack... it's not that bad. honestly, you won't even use it all the time or need to charge it all the time. it has it's own separate on and off switch.

I think the group is deciding on Wynn

Since they want to go to Surrender at Encore, it's right next to it. Less walking lol
