    This guy won a free buffet for life at the M Casino biggest winners contest. He stalked several women who worked at the casino showering them with gifts. He also drank quite a bit there and became belligerent so the casino trespassed him. The problem is he won a buffet for life for a guest and himself that he could no longer use. The dinner for two is worth about $50 a day. The Las Vegas Review Journal doesn't like their stories copied so I will provide the links. You can watch a video the guy did the day before and sent to the newspaper. He killed himself inside the casino with a gun right by the buffet on Easter Sunday. Casinos have to put in metal detectors. He could just as easily shot people waiting in line.

    The brain is an odd thing.

    This guy spent every minute obsessing and worrying instead of enjoying life. He spent many, many hours composing the end of his life instead of just chilling out and enjoying a sunny day.

    Worse than that, while he spent 100% of his energy caring, no one else will give two shits once the mop is dry from cleaning up his mess.

    Why in the world would you want to eat at the same buffet (or any buffet) every day for life? Sounds like a prison sentence to me.

    I would be bored to tears with the place if I went twice a month. Most people are in casino buffet restaurants for 25 minutes or less. It's not a social club.

    The man who took his life, identified locally as John Noble, was reportedly upset because he had lost free buffet eating privileges he'd won from the M Resort Spa and Casino in Henderson

    Police said a 53-year-old man was found dead with an apparent self-inflicted wound and that a car fire in the parking garage is linked to the shooting.

    You should have tried it 20 years ago, it was much better! When I was last there about 3 years ago after not being there for many years, I noticed it had really gone down hill.

    At age 53, you're supposed to be at your "business prime" and wheeling & dealing at work.

    This guy was worried about some waitresses and the flavor of the Monday jello mold.

    The casino saved themselves about $400,000 in free buffets that they would have to give this guy by throwing him out two years ago. 22 years times 365 days times dinner for two worth $50.

    How do you make the rounds of the TV circuit MULTIPLE TIMES extolling the virtues of good eating and then blow up into an Oompa Loompa?


    Why does she make her madness our marching orders?

    When the Rio was independent, they had a lot of creative ideas and really made an effort to stand out from the crowd. After it was taken over by Harrah's (now Caesars) the bean counters took over and it hasn't been the same since. Damn shame.

    some of those LV buffets were amazing.
    I could eat there for several weeks before getting bored.

    I didn't know they were taken over, the place was really second rate. Our room wasn't nice, the TV was an old tube screen that kept shifting from Color to B&W, I called the desk to let them know that it wasn't working right and no one ever came by or got back with me. And as I said before, the buffet was no where near what it once was, quality wise.
