    Default Any members in or near Las Vegas? ... lunch Friday 10th August @ Wynn buffett?

    Gents,

    A few of your favourite Mods and Stewards will be crossing paths in Las Vegas in just over a week's time, and we thought it'd be a nifty idea to meet any local-ish members who felt like joining us for lunch.

    We thought the lunch buffett at the Wynn would be a good location, what with Penhaligon's right around the corner ... no. I'm not suggesting a mass protest to protest reformulation, but rather a pleasant stroll over to a fine purveyor of colognes and shave creams after lunch perhaps.

    Any interest?

    Be there or be square. Only I can do both!

    We thought about going in the dead of winter, but all the whiney tourists will be there then.
    Besides, what's to see outdoors in Vegas anyway?

    Sounds like fun guys... Very tempting. The Wynn was my favorite buffet in Vegas for the longest time. Just recently got passed over by the Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopiltan. Unfortunately I don't think they serve lunch (unless it has changed).

    If I can get out of my daughter's dance thing, I'm in. If the buffet's not open, there are some great restaurants across LVBLVD at the Fashion Show. Also, if anyone is wanting a good barber shop shave away from the strip, my barber is awesome-- http://www.elliottandco.com/contact.html

    My Saturday's shot, but I'm up for breakfast on Friday if you guys want. Where are you all staying?

    People watching on the strip is a great way to pass the time. There is tons to see outside.

    It's kind of a catch-all, some here and some there.

    OK, King 8 truck stop on Tropicana/Industrial. We should be able to get bacon, eggs, and penicillin for under $10.

    Now, how shall I seek advice for places to go on my trip to Chi-town next month....

    I might be interested, I'll have to ask my boss if I can have the day/afternoon off, I've got furlough days to burn. I gotta double check that buffet price, looks pricey. I know a pretty good barber supply store (that stocks Feathers), but it's way off strip. The Fashion show is decent, there's supposedly an Omega chemists in there but I couldn't find it. I did find B&BW, L'Occitane and AoS, though.

    And Luvmysuper, there's some great wilderness and recreation areas around town but the only one that's any good this time of year is Mt. Charleston, and that's mostly as a refuge from the heat.

    Please post or PM me ont this. I've not found one other than the AOS, B&BW, T & H, etc. & I generally avoid the strip like the plague.

    Thanks

    Is this still on, or is there some alternative activity going on? I probably can't do lunch, but maybe something else later on.

    Definitely lunch today 12:00 PM at Wynn's!

    Come out to lunch and meet a mod or two. Rumors of a Bigfoot sighting are rampant!

    We had a blast, but unfortunately didn't see anyone else there wearing the traditional peacock feather in a toque to signify their association with B&B!
