tippingvelvet, I'll tell you what's a foodie girl to do? If you win it big, DITCH THEM and go wherever you wanr!! And let us know what kind of food you want, okay?? And I suppose your traveling companions (You didn't say "friends", so I won't say "friends" either) don't mind spending $150-200 a person to watch Cirque du Soleil or Celine Dion, or go to the slots & tables, ehh?? Perhaps this is a business trip? Pardon me if I'm being a bit officious ... Please specify how much is "moderately priced?" $25 a person? $50? $100? Remember, let them know that ... "This is Las Vegas, mon" ... Some buffets are pretty good for breakfast or lunch, like the one in the Bellagio. In fact, there are a few places at the Bellagio you should try: Sensi for lunch, depending on prices; J-P Maury Patisserie with their world-class pastries and made-to-order crepes. If you want BBQ, there's Memphis Championship Barbecue, off the Strip on Warm Springs, just south/southeast of the airport. molto e, Lotus of Siam is off the Strip and Rosemary's is WAY off the Strip. I hope this helps. ← Hi Russell, This is actually FAMILY......my uncle (85) and his 4 daugthers (in their 50's) and me (in my early 40's). This was what he wanted to do for his 85th Birthday. I might be able to get them to spend $50 per person for dinner, but I'm also having trouble getting any commitment at all on shows. I can just see the six of us walking around aimlessly for 5 days. This bunch would rather just spend their money gambling, I'd rather spend it on food (but I'm in the minority). I'd like to have some idea what we're doing I don't want to eat buffet or deli every night, which is what I'm afraid we'll fall into if we don't have some direction. I'm not sure I'll get them to go to Lotus of Siam either?? Sounds good to me though. Any help would be appreciated. This is not actually a money thing.....it's different priorities but I'm hoping to be convincing if I just had some ideas. Thanks for the help.
