Well, The Wicked Buffet is the name of the new buffet at the New Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. Although I’m out of town for the time being, I do know that the Cosmo is set to open today – December 15, 2010. What are the chances that the buffet is opening at the same time?
Buffet information will soon be posted on the main website pages. Although there’s not a tremendous amount of information on The Wicked Spoon as yet, here’s some info on The Cosmo Hotel:
