Silverton Casino

It was Sunday, and Eva and I needed a girl's day. We headed over to the Silverton Casino for brunch at the Seasons Buffet. It was a champagne brunch for $13.99, and Eva had a 2-for-1 coupon to make it even better. I don't really like champagne, so I was pleased to see that that they had different fruit puree flavors that could be added. The mango was awesome! I grabbed two glassed, and headed over to the crab legs. Crab legs are my weakness. Like most buffets, they were available cold, but if you tip the chef a dollar, he will re-steam them. We must have spent two hours there eating crab, sipping champagne, and tasting a few other things here and there. This is the best buffet I've been to in town for the price, and it's off the Strip, so it's easy to get to.

The Silverton has a fish tank that is a focal point in the casino. It is complete with sting rays, sharks, and, of course, mermaids. Next to the fish tank is the Mermaid Lounge that has a jellyfish display behind the bar. I am captivated by jellyfish, and these are artistically presented. The chandelliers in the lounge are shaped like jellyfish.
