Letís start with this: Itís probably a good idea for a casino to have a buffet.

...And go from there.

Let me give you a glimpse into the customer service you can expect in the lame duck phase of the Ocean as it changes ownership.

On Sunday, the Chiefs and the Patriots ended regulation tied in the AFC championship, airing in the late window of the NFL's championship Sunday, which is usually the second-most-watched TV programming of the year.

The main lounge in Ocean was full of premium casino card holders watching the game and rooting for their teams. As the coin was flipped to start overtime, the lounge televisions were turned off because it was "time for the lounge to close."

Apparently keeping the lounge open another 15 minutes (without serving further food or drink) was not an option for the sorry excuse of management at the Ocean. Patrons were asked to leave just as overtime was beginning...and one was forcibly removed by security and forced through an emergency exit.

I cannot fathom a competing casino-hotel, or even any local bar or restaurant, that would serve guests for 6 hours during the NFL's championship weekend and then kick everyone out just as a game was entering overtime.

Let's hope the new owners have a clue about hospitality and how to treat customers with common sense and decency or this beautiful place will be soon closed again.

Nor can I. You can have bums or rich customers, but you treat them well.

Frayed carpeting repaired with duct tape, ground in grime, elderly servers, "tray lizards" fully clothed, ... all can be forgiven, but not thoughtless discourtesy.

If the game goes into overtime; so does the bartender. I can understand 'last call for grill orders' but the bar stays open and the lights stay on and no one gets shooed out the door while the referee is just about to blow the whistle and announce something.

It is like that minister who put in the church newsletter: The Youth Ministry meeting will begin at xx:xx unless the game goes into overtime in which case the meeting will begin at xx:xx. there are priorities in life.

Wow.

Apparently, the Ocean management is too young to have heard about the Heidi Game.

Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗
