Re: Fitz

Now, thanks to my flaky internet, I have to recreate my response. That's a HUGE drop of machines- over 200 in a year? I didn't realize they were down to only 12 machines in high limits. I know the front section there was pretty much $1 machines. Last time we were there, they had a power outage and t...

Re: Fitz

Hoping to stay in that pre-sale casino for a night before it goes up on the market. I did hear they were under new ownership last time. The pics make it actually look a little empty. Hope there are more than a couple hundred machines! There's a difference between over crowded and empty. We'll see!

Re: Memorial weekend - 4 nights in 4 different hotels

Interesting video. It is such a shame that people can't not only keep their hands off of what isn't theirs, but feel the need to destroy it. I think I might be a little afraid (or more than a little) to go into any of the abandoned casinos/hotels. Especially after hearing he heard others in there. Y...

Re: Memorial weekend - 4 nights in 4 different hotels

I don't know if you'd like to poke around in there. They used it for Katrina Refugees and rumor has it it was torn apart. I'm not sure if Boyd ever put any machines in there, I think they used it for overflow hotel space prior to Katrina. Rumor has it it's full of rats and snakes, which wouldn't sur...

Re: Memorial weekend - 4 nights in 4 different hotels

I think once Penn took on Resorts, the writing was on the wall. I hadn't been there in awhile, and, in retrospect, had I known it was closing when we were over at Hollywood in April, we probably would have stopped in for one last time. I have never had much luck there. I think they were declining fo...

Re: Resorts Tunica closing

Resorts was never that high on my list. Stayed there a couple of times. Guess I missed the boat, as I haven't been back there since Penn National bought it. We thought of it this last trip, but didn't happen. I won't be back before it closes. Haven't been to 1st Jackpot either, but there's still tim...

Re: Resorts Tunica closing

It's a little surprising that they are keeping open the one with no hotel, but I guess that's less overhead. In the time of combining services, etc, one would think that the location within walking distance to your other casino would be better, but I guess they don't feel that way. RIck stayed at Re...

Re: Penn National (Hollywood, 1st Jackpot, and Resorts) switching to mychoice

I will have to do that. Not sure I have any, as I don't know how long they stay active or what it costs to earn them. This musical casino game makes me dizzy. I can't tell who is who. I am not too happy with Boyd Gaming's latest player card changes. Of course whenever a casino changes its program, i...

Re: Fitz closing temporarily due to flooding 3/3/2019

I see they opened tonight. Fitz made another change I'm not too crazy about, but it won't affect us this time. The buffet is now closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Steakhouse is only open Friday and Saturday nights. Room Service is only Saturday and Sunday mornings. That leaves the snack bar as the onl...

Re: One last party at the Roadhouse + quick visits to other casinos

Sounds like a great trip! I hate what they did to the old Sheraton. It used to be a great place to go. I've never had the breakfast buffet at Hollywood, but we usually have the lunch buffet once a trip and it has been consistently good thus far. Do you know how you can tell what you have in comps at...

Re: Picture report

Our last trip to Chicago Steakhouse was a little mixed review as well. We ordered French Onion Soup. Mine had not, one, but TWO bay leaves in the bowl. I can see one perhaps getting by, but 2? Our steak was good, the sea bass was good, but the veggies cooked with it were terribly overcooked. We orde...

Re: Picture report

Treblehook, I also love the GS breakfast buffet. My go to is a mushroom, onion, spinach omelet. I give Fitz the edge for crispy bacon, but most everything else goes to GS buffet. Hash, a couple of potato choices, cooked eggs for those not wanting to wait for omelets, fresh fruit. Now I'm getting hun...

Re: Picture report

You had some great wins there! I hope you came home with some of your money? You and I think alike in some ways-don't go there to sit in the room! Sad to hear about HS buffet. I wasn't too impressed with it last time either, but the Asian station was being remodeled and that is usually my fave. Remo...
