Station sets
new buffet prices

Dec 2, 2003 4:45 AM

After a summer and fall of great reduced price buffets with Station Casinos, the local casino giant has settled on new permanent prices. At Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and both Fiestas, breakfast is now $4.99 and lunch is $5.99. (Note: Fiesta Henderson doesn’t serve a breakfast buffet.) Dinner remains an outstanding value for just $6.99 at Palace and Boulder, Monday through Thursday, and a buck more on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, including Sunday Brunch.

Texas, Sunset and both Fiestas now serve dinner for $7.99 weekdays and $8.99 on weekends and for brunch. Green Valley Ranch is highest at $5.99 for breakfast, $7.99 for lunch, $12.99 dinners from Monday through Thursdays and $13.99 for weekend brunch or dinner. Specialty nights have been eliminated, but they all still serve prime rib, seafood, pasta and steak. Overall, the prices are still a very good value and they remain competitive among the lowest priced buffets in Las Vegas.

Holiday displays begin lighting up this week and are a great form of "cheap" entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. Caesars Palace will sparkle with an extensive array of holiday decorations, the centerpiece of which is a seven-story Christmas tree positioned in the middle of the famous Caesars Palace front fountains. The replica Rocky Mountain Pine tree will be 60-feet tall with a base diameter of 30 feet. It will have more than 1,000 branches and weigh 11,500 pounds. The tree will require 300 amps of electricity and will glow with 15,000 watts from the 216,510 twinkling multi-colored lights ”” more than twice as many lights as the Christmas tree in New York’s Rockefeller Center! The seven-story Christmas tree will be illuminated in a public event on Wednesday, December 3 at 5 p.m. and will remain on display through January 5 of the New Year.

Plan ahead for "Downtown Rodeo Days" being held at the Lady Luck next week from December 11-14. The free event honoring National Finals Rodeo will be held from 4 p.m. to midnight, December 11-13, and from 2 p.m. to midnight on December 14. The festive theme event will take place outside on Third Street between Ogden and Stewart and admission is free. Some of the attractions and highlights include: Horseshoe Challenge $5 for three throws (all proceeds go to charity); Cowboy Karaoke every night; Rodeo Clown; Bonnie Spring Gunfighters doing a show every night; entertainment by Stetzen performing every night from 8 p.m. to midnight; Bungee Bull Rides; autograph session with Tuff Hedeman on Saturday from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Lady Luck Showroom; Bud and Jack Daniel girls every night, plus a simulcast of the entire WNFR Rodeo in Lady Luck’s Lucky Louie’s Lounge.

Until next time, "Eat well, play well, stay well!"
