When I say "buffet," you may think Luby's or Golden Corral. Nah, man, you gotta change your perspective. When Las Vegas does a buffet, they do it up right: crab legs, sushi, custom made pasta, and dessert spreads strong enough to break the diet of any CrossFit bro. These buffets aren't "cheap" but you're in Vegas. Treat yo' self! You will definitely want to make reservations when available to skip the line. If not, be willing to wait over an hour to get in.

5 Best Buffets on the Las Vegas Strip:

1. The Wicked Spoon

Location: The Cosmopolitan

Price: Weekday brunch 24$, dinner 38$; Weekend brunch 38$, dinner 41$ (Plus tax)

The Wicked Spoon brings style to the buffet. Instead of a bland iceberg salad bar, they have a Italian panzanella bread salad, chickpea salad, hummus, and a broad selection of cheeses. They have a traditional carving station featuring prime rib and pork loin, but also feature an Italian, Asian, and Seafood station with more options than you could possible try. Get the bottomless drink option (15$) which will cover your mimosas, Bloody Marys, house red or white wine, or PBR draft for the next two hours.

2. Bellagio Buffet

Location: The Bellagio

Price: Breakfast 23.99, Lunch 27.99, Dinner 38.99, Weekend Brunch 32.99 (plus tax)

A classic, the one that started it all. The huge spread offers unique dishes you are unlikely to find elsewhere like ahi poke, elk prime rib, and a white chocolate Nutella parfait. The Bellagio, in my opinion has the best dessert spread on the strip. They also have gourmet (42.99 plus tax) and Chef's Table (+25$, reservation required) dinner options for those willing to pay extra.

Price: Breakfast $18.99, Weekday Brunch $23.99, Weekend Brunch $28.99, Dinner (Mon-Thurs) $30.99, Dinner (Fri-Sun) $32.99 (plus tax)

The hidden gem of buffets, balancing a good price with excellent food. The 11 food stations give you plenty of options: Chinese, noodles, Oven fresh pizza, sushi, custom salads, seafood, and barbecue. The best part of Cravings is that every adult (over 21) entry includes unlimited seasonal beers, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Location: Aria

Price: Breakfast $22.99, Lunch $26.99, Brunch (Sat-Sun) $32.99, Dinner $37.99, Gourmet dinner $42.99 (plus tax)

This is a sleek and modern buffet and the go-to if you like Indian cuisine (they have a tandoor oven that constantly bakes fresh naan). Even if you don't like Indian, this buffet offers plenty of options but excels in their seafood selection. Don't skip dessert; the grasshopper cupcakes, rocky road rice krispy treats and the wheel of gelato are amazing! Bottomless mimosas, champagne, premium beers and wine are available for an additional 16.99$.

Price: Weekday Brunch $39.99, Dinner $54.99; Weekend Brunch $49.99, Dinner 57.99 (plus tax)

The Granddaddy of the Vegas buffets in both price and offerings. The Bacchanal is unfathomable with it's nine show kitchens spanning 25,000 square feet. No matter your diet, you will leave satisfied.

Jason Aldean

You HAVE to Watch Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town Sing Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down" During CMT Artists of the Year Celebration

During a night that CMT was supposed to celebrate the individual accomplishment of five artists that had big-time, celebration worthy years, they opted for low-key spot moments and instead, turned the attention to fans across the country who are suffering. Namely, Las Vegas shooting victims and the tragic events that took place during the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

As Jason Aldean was set to be honored, Luke Bryan took the stage to not only talk about Aldean's successful singles, albums and tours, but the fact that he was the one on stage in Las Vegas that night. And he's the one who has decided to endure and fight on.

Keith Urban

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman Were the World's Sweetest Couple on the Red Carpet Before CMT Artists of the Year Celebration

In a world where we could all use a little more love, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman seem to always have some to share with everyone. When these two walk onto a red carpet Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness" automatically starts playing in my head. Because there's not a more loving or tender couple around.

Urban was being honored as one of the 2017 CMT Artists of the Year and of course, Kidman was right by his side supporting her "amazing, supportive, gorgeous husband who [she] loves more than anything in the world."

Just look at this photo.

"The Voice" Announces The Return Of A Fan Favorite Coach For Season 14

The 13th season of "The Voice" is just starting to heat up but that isn't stopping the show from hyping up next season. The 14th season of "The Voice" will be competing with the resurrected "American Idol" anchored by judges Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. To compete, "The Voice" stole away "Idol" alum Kelly Clarkson, putting her in one of the rotating chairs alongside Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. But the fourth judge's chair was still empty. It was until yesterday, when they announced a fan favorite would return to judge once again.

Katy Perry Gets Stuck Mid-Air As Prop Malfunctions During Nashville Concert

Katy Perry gathered her fans—affectionately called Katy Cats—at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Wednesday night (Oct. 18) for her Witness World Tour.

The show was moving along smoothly until suddenly there was a glitch. While Perry was flying high above the crowd on an oversized replica of the planet Saturn, singing "Thinking of You," the flying prop was supposed to drop her down to the stage. Only this time, she wasn't descending. The planet malfunctioned and left Katy hanging in mid-air for a brief moment.

The 32-year-old handled the mishap like the pro she is, talking and joking with the crowd. "I'm really stuck. This is the first time I've been stuck in space", Katy said as she lingered in the air. "I could be stuck here forever. What should I do, should I tell some jokes, should I tell some stories, should I just sing another song."

Look, I love a good brunch. You just can't beat an excellent late breakfast. But brunch is getting pretty out of hand. Restaurants are going crazy trying to keep up and compete for brunchers.

Now, a fancy brunch spot in Long Beach, California has been outed for reselling Popeye's fried chicken in their "famous" $13 chicken and waffles. The owner proudly responded %95 of their menu is made in house.

Anna Faris Says She and Chris Pratt Truly Love and Adore Each Other

It seems like Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have turned their #CoupleGoals into #DivorceGoals? No, that's not a thing, but treating the person you shared a huge part of your life with with love and respect is definitely a thing and Faris and Pratt are doing it.

After 8 years of marriage and one child together, Pratt and Faris announced their separation in August via social media, sharing, "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."

Since then, the two have only spoken highly of the other and Faris has taken it to the next level during a recent interview with People.
