Planning a family trip to Paradise, Nevada for the week before Christmas. I thought it would be a lot of fun to use some of those Harrah's comp dollars to play some beer pong with the family at O'Sheas and now I see this terrible news. Anyone know when they plan on closing the great O'Sheas? Is it already closed?

We went to see Dirk Arthur at O'Shea's last summer because there were
some cheapo tix available and that was cheaper than gambling.

Anyways...

a) It was a little sad to see Dirk had to perform in such a dingy theatre.

The armrest on my crappy plastic chair broke, and I mentioned it to
one of the stage hands, and he said not to worry, it happens all the time.

b) We still enjoyed the show.

c) I give credit to Dirk for being so upbeat and putting on a good show.
His attitude was very positive and he gave the impression that he
was still having a great time putting on a show, even though it was
probably his 2000th performance.

I haven't called myself, but a few posts around the web has employees saying Feb 2012. I assumed they would have been doing all the stuff down that alley before they closed any casino making them money. I'll be there in 2 weeks, hoping it is still open then. I was hoping it was going to be open next March as well, but that doesn't look likely now.

No firm closing date yet. There will be several weeks notice, I'm sure. I expect the actual casinos to be the last things to be tampered with during the construction.

You won't see me shedding any tears over losing O'Shaes. 100% of their blackjack was 6-5. The only merit it had, to me at least, was they often hosted bizarre new casino games, like the recent ones based on backgammon and football. No wonder they are going the way of the dodo bird.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

It will probably be forgotten but not gone. After it gets absorbed into the Imperial Palace is where it gets interesting.

Apparently the IP name is leased and runs out soon so we could have a whole new name for the refurbished IP.

Welcome back! Where have you been hiding?

The IP will be rebranded as Horseshoe.

I've never really played at O'Shea's, but I'll miss slumming there. We'll have to make do with the Casino Royale ;)

Hi btw.

As Gomer Pyle would say, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!"

You went almost five months between posts. I thought maybe I had said/done something to offend you at WoVCon. Welcome back.
