They may remain open.

I visited Showboat in AC during a strike about 15 years ago.

The buffet was limited and all factory food. Self serve beverage. Dishes & utensils all disposable - and you were expected to bus your own table.

The weirdest part was playing BJ and getting a beverage from a server who痴 ID said he was in the Information Services dept. In other words, he was a computer person just like me. Eeewwww.....
I invented a few casino games. Info: http://www.DaveMillerGaming.com/ 覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧 Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

If they turn down the offer it wouldn't be the first time

Windchills over night into the single digits

no open fire barrels allowed inside the city limits

those propane space heaters are going to be in high demand

One write up I saw stated the casino has advised all room bookings up till April 12 have been advised they are cancelled
