So a group of casinos have this deal called Buffet of Buffets. For $45 you can eat at any of 5 buffets as much as you want during 24 hours. If I timed it to have my first breakfast late and my second one early, I could get 4 meals out of it. It sounded good. Since I was staying at Planet Hollywood, I had my breakfast at Spice Market buffet, which was nice. It had every possible breakfast food you can think of – except bagels.
For lunch I ran over to Paris, next door. I remembered their sausages and pastries were good. I had charcuterie, sausage and prime rib. The shrimp were peel-and-eat to slow you down, so I didn’t bother with them.
For dinner I decided to have crab legs at Spice Market since I was peckish, then wander over to Rio and have their famous seafood buffet later. As I sat in Spice Market picking my dried-out crab legs, I started looking around. What had seemed like an explosion of flavor now seemed like a monument to American gluttony and greed.
The crab didn’t offer much sustenance, so I still made my way over to Rio. To continue my disappointment, the seafood buffet was not included. They had a second buffet, The World Buffet. The line was as long as for Space Mountain at Disneyland. The longer I waited, the more I felt like I was in WalMart. And I didn’t want to eat in WalMart. So I abandoned the line and had an awful plate of fish and chips in the sports bar.
The next morning my buffet breakfast was yogurt and Raisin Bran.
