    I would say thank God for buffets when it comes to having a child with special needs. I too have been through the 'cant wait' situation so many times due to my ds having Aspergers, so getting in, getting ds fed and getting out again has been very important to us too. And of course there are the characters.
    However you are right folks, there are some awful buffets and hygiene sometimes leaves a lot to be desired.

    Many of the Las Vegas buffets are in a slightly different class, aren't they?

    I tend to not like buffets but I do like Sweet Tomatoes and Boma. That's just because they are different than the normal buffet.

    The Executive Chef (Barry) who was our favorite at Cape May left there for Vegas. I would like to see/try the buffets there one day. A friend of mine told me there is one there (of course, there may be more than one) that all you can see are rows and rows of seafood. :D

    Different class all together, I'm thinking. :yes:

    We went to a couple of champagne ones and I thought ok, it's $25 or something, so it'll be one glass of bad champers. Food was great and as it turned out they kept coming over and refilling the glasses with extremely nice champagne. Really amazing value

    Yes! The Rio! I couldn't remember the name of the place.

    Keith, champagne and nice food, doesn't get any better than that, eh? :D

    It's apparently variable. The time we ate there it was awful! We haven't had the nerve to try it again! :lol:

    So, I need to go to Las Vegas for the buffets? They have 5 Cirque du Soleil shows there too! Who needs gambling?

    Plus a few Dragone (spelling?) shows. He's the former artistic director of Cirque.

    Fair warning! Prepare to be miserable! :lol:

    It's still fun, though. We stay indoors as much as possible during the day and go out after dark. Still hot, but at least the sun isn't pounding down on you. The strip is designed for endless walking!

    Mom went to visit a cousin of ours this past April. She said the weather was perfect then. I'll have to try to go in the spring.

    I've "heard" that there are any number of people handing out flyers for "entertainment" if you get my drift. Is that true? I'd not be thrilled with that. Las Vegas has never really appealed to me for several reasons, but that is one of them. :unsure:

    yeah, it's why I dont do a lot of walking in vegas! I tend to get cabs, well seems to be limos over there, to different hotels and just enjoy the hotels and the shows.

    Vegas is great, just don't book any of the shows after 10pm that's when they go topless. It's like watching 100s of tiny poached eggs all dancing in rythm.
