2011 World Series of Poker Continues this Weekend

WSOP 2011 Las VegasFor the three American players left at the World Series of Poker, it’s all about the big payday and living the dream. Phil Collins (no relation), Matt Giannetti, and Ben Lamb (who made $2 million over six weeks at the Rio) are all former college students with youth on their side that play quite aggressively, and are ready to take on the biggest moments in their poker careers after dominating the online poker scene. At noon Saturday at the Penn and Teller Theater at the Rio, they’ll get their shot.

If one of them wins, it would be the first time since 1998 that the champion’s gold bracelet stayed in Las Vegas. We wish them the best!

Las Vegas' Village Seafood Buffet

If you are a seafood fanatic and in Las Vegas, one of the must-see (and must-eat) destinations is the Rio’s Village Seafood Buffet. There are other things on the menu, but if you aren’t into seafood, it’s really best to dine elsewhere. For the seafood lover, however, this is paradise. There is a reason that there are long, albeit quickly moving, lines here. Lobster is only served at dinner, but other than that, everything’s fair game all the time.

13,000 square feet of sushi, snow crab legs, shrimp, fresh oysters, and much more? We’ll take it. Bring your wallet (you’ll be looking at about $25-$40) and appetite, and we’ll meet you there! Need coupons for the Rio? We’ve got you covered for as low as $49 a night. That way, you can fill up on food, not the room.
