If you look at vpfree2 under "what's new", there are TWENTY entries for Downtown Grand. My goodness, what a mess.

Reminds me a little of Plaza about four or five years ago. I knew that wasn't going to last.

And yet, IIRC it went for like 7 months. I think a guy could have reasonably made about fifty thousand in those seven months.

a guy? could?

I've seen several cryptic entries .

So are people flocking there or fleeing from there?

There may be a little bit confusion on my part which promotion was being talked about. I was thinking about the Plaza / Las Vegas club double Royals and whatnot. The 28% thing was good as well, but that only lasted for 24 hours.

I'm not sure who's playing at the Downtown Grand, but I don't think people are flocking there. Personally, I don't like grinding on video poker all day anymore, unless it's something super good.

Yes.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Has anyone here actually gambled, or stayed, at the Grand in the last 12 months?

I played for about an hour in September. Won about $90 thanks to these. It was very dead, but it was also Tuesday afternoon. The 9/6 DDB UX Aces weren't a vulture. I was giving up on the session.

I stayed there during Spring Fling. I didn't pay much attention to the VP as it hadn't been that good in the past, and I didn't expect it to be any better. Freedom Beat has a halfway decent Pot Roast Sandwich, though.

Wow! It's nearly impossible to find halfway decent food.

Pizza Rock, Evil Pie, Naked City: all good pizza.

American Conney Island: Chili dogs.

Triple George: Semi fancy.

Hugos Celler: Fancy (never been, but universally loved.)

Andiamo: Steak. Oscars supposed to be good, never been.

Binion's steakhouse has a great view and vibe and my favorite ceasars. The steak is a bit bellow top end places, but also cheaper. Binions cafe is good.

Le Thai is good too.

Rigondeaux, take the wife to Hugo's. They also have a salad cart that is as good as anybody's.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

They downgraded the $1 10/6 double double and 10/7 double bonus, both to 9.
