Mandalay Bay at night

Saturday! Ahhh.. We slept in, got up, had breakfast, played pool, watched TV.... generally a relaxing time.

In the evening we dressed up (ie. exchanged pyjamas for actual clothes) and went down to the 'Strip to the Mandalay bay and wandered around showing Josh and Anna the fantastic looking restaurants - then checked out the buffet for dinner.

We arrived at the buffet at about 7:30, which should have been peak time, and I really expected a long queue, especially on a Saturday night, but I was totally wrong - there was hardly any queue at all.

The Mandalay Bay buffet is rather good. We had a great time, and I was even adventurous enough to grapple with crab legs.

After dinner we tried wandering around the casino floor listening to lounge acts and trying to find someplace to sit, relax, enjoy the atmosphere. But somehow it just wasn't terribly enjoyable. Maybe Lisa and I struck it lucky last time we tried to do this, maybe we were all tired and cranky, but whatever, we collectively decided not to stick around, but to go home instead.

We all had a great time at the buffet, regardless!
