I will be playing a few events in this yrs wsop at the Rio in July and will be going solo this yr.I love to eat and am slightly active on my home nj board here.
I foresee two problems with my chowiness on this trip: First, reservations are tough to honor when I don't know whether I will still be in the poker tournament, and second, when I eat alone I like to eat much more quickly than when with others.
I plan to take out/eat at LOS a few times, have breakfast at Bouchon (I hear their housemade granola is excellent), lunch at Commander's when I can, and hit the Bellagio buffet as well. For a treat, I will make reservations at MGM in the lab, since the Mansion will likely try my patience solo.
I guess what I am looking for is some last minute options that are top quality - eating at the bar at one of the top places, etc.
I know if I win a bracelet I will be buying dinner for many internet "friends" I have never met, but just in case I don't ... ;o)
Thanks in advance,
