Saw this in a marketing e-mail that the PALMS sent out, thought it was an interesting idea to set the tone of being a fun/cool place to be:

"Even our lobby is full of surprises! Introducing our brand new, Beverage Butler, pouring up your favorite classic vodka, rum and whiskey-based cocktails for just $5 each during peak check-in times.. This special Butler will also be tracking your wait time to the counter. If you stand in line for longer than five minutes, your drink is on us! It's a rare occasion that we have a line longer than five minutes, but this is our promise to you.

The Beverage Butler check-in cocktail service is offered Sunday through Thursday from 4pm to 7pm, and Friday through Saturday from 4pm to 8pm. Get in line, and have a drink. You’re in Las Vegas, after all."

CZR properties in Vegas would have to change the time limit to 90 minutes in line to avoid giving them all out for free.

Wizard plans to do one of The Palms himself as time permits. I will be doing an updated review of The D as well as reviews of Cannery and Downtown Grand here in the next two weeks. I leave day after tomorrow.

It feels like Palms is trying to change its rep and fatigue-factor lately ... Moon just closed and will host only special events until it reopens ... View seems to be going the same route. I can't speak to the gaming comps (since I am a low roller) but the property is sprucing up and trying to find its niche. The "we're the cool place" thing has long worn off and I think this will only help them. Good thing, too ... I really like View ... bartender is among the city's best bullshitters and the waitresses like to play pool if it's not busy!
