Alpines & Buffets (Main Street Station RV Park – Las Vegas, NV)

We got to meet Larry Lewis and his wife Rita from the NorthWest Alpine Coach Association (NoWACA) Chapter.  It’s always good to meet other Alpine owners 🙂   Larry & Rita did an overnight stay here at the Main Street Station RV Park on Tuesday and Larry came over to introduce himself after they pulled in.  I got the chance to talk with them more this morning (Wednesday) before they pulled out for the Phoenix area.  Larry showed me the really cool MCD shades they had recently installed in his 2007 Limited SE.  I really liked the electrically operated shades on the inside of his windshield.

Safe Travels Larry & Rita!  See you in Quartzsite next year 🙂

The big event for the day on our Tuesday here in Las Vegas was a visit to the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace (←link here).

According to the website: “Leave it to Las Vegas to revolutionize the classic buffet concept. Using a $100 million budget, Bacchanal completely reinvented the traditional buffet in 2012, with modern food presentations and an upscale setting.  Approximately 15 daily chef’s specials are added to the daily menu, and they change depending on products, season and chef’s whims.  Can’t choose between the truffle scalloped potatoes and sweet potato tots? Try both! Mini salads such as the watermelon and feta let you try several separately dished items at a time.  Fill your plates to the top with prime rib, chilled king crab legs and roasted South Carolina shrimp and grits, or oak-grilled lamb chops, hand-made dim sum, pho and baked-to-order soufflés.  Read more about Bacchanal Buffet on Total Vegas Blog.”

Man was it good!  But, also pricey… we paid ~$95 for two people after they tacked on an 18% gratuity since our party had more than 8 people.

Afterwards we hung out with the kids at Caesars Palace and supported the slots and electronic BlackJack table for a while.  Later on, the kids all came back over to Fremont Street to close out the night.  Fun times for all 🙂

Check back later for more LV adventure…  We’ll have to say goodbye to all the kids tomorrow (Thursday) and then we’ll convoy with my brother Steven, Cheryl, Stepdad Jim, Mom, and Aunt Kathy (in their Class-C) on to California to visit our brother Ronald.  We have a 90th birthday celebration for an Uncle to attend at his place there in Westley, CA.

In other news:  my IPhoto Library got corrupted somehow this morning, so I had to perform a work-around to get a few pictures on today’s post.  I had to email myself pictures from my iPhone.  Hopefully, I can get it fixed again for tomorrow… because as usual – I always have lots of pictures to share 🙂
