It’s quarterly earnings season where corporations share information on their previous quarter. Hopefully, some of the luxury and large casino operators will also spend some time looking forward informing up what they have in store for Las Vegas. Here are the reporting dates for Las Vegas casino operators that I’m looking forward to.
The B Bar at the Borgata is the only bar in Atlantic City that still comps top shelf drinks (or any drinks for that matter) for playing video poker or slots on the bar top machines. The beauty of this is that while you are being comped for your drinks, you are also earning comps that can be used for something else, like the $10 entry fee for the Amphora Lounge (if you’ve got a Black Label Card.) The machines also include full pay Jacks or Better!
For a limited time, you can earn 5 Starpoints per US$1 spent with uber during stays, but only for the month of February 2017… But there are also other changes to the Uber SPG Starwood Program.
I meant to publish this re-cap last week about the Gambling Downgrades and Upgrades at Borgata Atlantic City, but things got a bit busy. Figured I better get this posted before there are more changes. To be fair, there have been a few “enhancements,” for those who like to wager high amounts. I am referring to my notes, which were only semi-organized so please feel free to point out any discrepancies.
Not only is the Uber and Lyft pickup area in the shade but there’s rarely a wait to get a ride at LAS. Even though it’s convenient, finding the ridesharing area at McCarran Airport can be tricky if you’ve never been there before.
It’s the Year of the Rooster! The Palazzo decked out their atrium to celebrate the Chinese New Year. This big guy is huge and quite a sight. I prefer the display from the previous Year of the Rooster display.
I was in Atlantic City last week and got snowed in…… and then had the opportunity to stay at Harrah’s Atlantic City for the cost of just the—FEES : $23.71 for the resort fee plus $3.29 tax on that and $5 for the occupancy fee for a total of $32 a night (on a COMP ROOM!)
It’s rumoured again. Back in October, we were advised that a price increase was coming to the program, but the
Momofuku Las Vegas opened with very little fanfare this week at Cosmopolitan. A friend was walking past it on his way to pay final respects to Blue Ribbon Sushi and saw that it was open. He immediately made a reservation for the next day.
When I get a free moment, I sift through posts, blogs, PR, hyperbole and rumors, and share some of the best stuff. Think of this as an extension of your travel “habiliments.” (Or, just maybe someone bet me $100 I wouldn’t be able to work the word habiliment into a blog post this week… maybe..)
