It might have to wait two years. Next year am hoping to go to Miami for Wrestlemania, and can't afford a Vegas trip on top of that.

But I do want to settle it sometime, and if the Wrestlemania trip fails to materialise, or could be turned into a 2 leg trip then next year it is.

Awwww, c'mon! Croupier versus the IP Buffet is a much bigger deal than Cena versus The Rock...

You know if we wait too long we might miss our chance? One of Nareed's Laws states everything in Vegas is ephemeral. They might close the buffet, they might close the IP, they might implode the IP even. So why not do it with your wife this year and whatever unsuspecting subjects agree to it, then post the results here? It would be a shame not to quantify the IP's Emperor's Buffet in our lifetime (or words to that effect).

Of course, this board is based in Vegas and that means it's also ephemeral, so... :P

Nice! That was right there waiting to be said, and I didn't even see it. Well done, sir.


I suppose if the event can't wait, I could observe/judge in Nareed's stead. But it sounds conspicuously like Nareed is just looking for excuses to never have to go back to the IP buffet, even if it is 2 years from now...;-)

The easy thing to do, which I also thought about, is to hit all 7 buffets in one business day, without eating a full meal at each. I say easy because you could, for example, have breakfast at Rio at 9, then a snack at Caesars around 11, then lunch at Flamingo, then coffee and dessert at Harrah's, then an afternoon snack at IP say around 4, then dinner at PH, then coffee at Bally's.


Let me save you some time and heartburn. If you're gonna buy the All-Day Buffet Ticket, no reason to hit IP at all, and only do Harrahs and Flamingo if you have time. Even Caesars buffet was disappointing when I did it (waaaay overcooked meats, no spoons anywhere or lemon wedges for tea, etc.). Just stick to Rio, Planet Hollywood and Paris. And do Rio at lunch, better selection than at breakfast. I eat there a lot, since it's half-price for locals.

Wouldn't you? :P

Of course you would. You offered to observe or judge, not to take part. Why is that? :)

I know. Last year in fact I skipped IP because of the low quality, and Caesars because of the distances involved. I tried all the others at least once. Rio and Paris way more than once. It was a really good deal.

But the challenge is to hit all seven between 9 am and closing, which I think is 10 pm. Since it's a challenge, then you'd ahve to do all 7, incuding the dreaded IP. I think I've said it's not bad, because it would need to improve substantially in order to be called bad :P

Maybe you should try a challenge similar to this one where they were required to "eat at least two pounds of food at three of the worst buffets in town, all in one day." Of course this was a while back so the Boardwalk is no longer available, but they started at Circus Circus and ended at the IP so you could do something like the Riviera in the middle.

The challenge was mainly to rate the IP Buffet, to see how bad it really was, not to attempt to kill myself with bad food.

And the only reason I planned on going to Wrestlemania was to see the Undertaker go 20-0 then retire. Im more shocked the wife agreed to it.
