Rivers Casino...

My Fellow Gamblers... ah, I mean Tattlers :)

I went to the Rivers Casino the other day and here are my thoughts:

- Those machines are tight! After an afternoon of playing, they weren't giving me any wins. Oh slot machine gods, at least play with me a little bit.

- They have video blackjack tables that are very creepy. It has a huge screen with a computerized dealer that looks at you when it's your turn. Way too surreal. Additionally, the woman dealers are in French maid outfits for you perverts :)

- The line to get a player's card was super long, however it moves really fast.

- The buffet is overpriced. Lunch is $13-ish and dinner is $25. It includes a salad bar and several stations such as American, Italian, Chinese, pizza, dessert and others. The ribs in the American section were overcooked and tasted more like beef jerky. The Mongolian section was something different and the pizza was good.

While I had a few minor issues with the buffet, the food was generally good for a buffet. I still believe it was not worth the money. If they added more seafood items on the buffet, it might be worth it.

The Post-Gazette's phantom diner, Munch, gave it a decent review. I have heard rumors that Munch is actually four different PG reporters but that is besides the point. Munch's article is here.

- I tend to travel to Las Vegas every other year and I'm used to casinos with a theme. The Rivers Casino has no theme, which was weird to me. It's not a necessary condition, however I felt it would be cool if it had a theme. By the way, I recommend the buffet at Paris in Las Vegas.

- Much like Kennywood and Sandcastle -- this is a good people watching spot. I love people watching!

In the end, I'd recommend giving the Rivers Casino a visit. I had a good time but wish Lady Luck was on my side.

Working to keep you posted...

One of only a few days long holiday. It is time to help you rest, relax, go out and gather friends and relatives. But because the daily habits are changing, constantly have to travel by train, less sleep cause you more susceptible to illness and fatigue after the holiday. Surely no one wants that, so please protect your health. If too sick stay home to sleep for a while and then get power to continue the fun.
