Hmmm. For long time patrons of the 'establishments' this could be very bad news.

On the brighter side, though the entrenched Southern Baptists have once again stalled any progress on bringing casino gambling to Atlanta, the topless entertainment industry is flourishing. I'm not sure if we have mermaids or not, I should become a more involved citizen. Regular topless ladies, maybe even ones with fish tails, should consider Atlanta as a possible alternative employment location. The guys still tip, and now they let them drink on Sunday! Anyone needing a referral is welcome to PM me for additional info. I suggest Pics be included, fishtailed or not ;-)

Other than a few bonus slots and small crap It's a complete ploppy place, I can't remember there ever being a good play there. So i'm not that upset. IIRC it used to be Sassy Sallys. They used to have girls outside dressed as cowgirls wearing some funny looking horse bottom costume. It looked as if they were riding a horse. I always got a kick out of that.

Bye bye fried oreos. I've personally never stepped in the place, but I was able to get my g/f to give me some of those while playing 99.95% Pickem at Fremont. I consider that a win.

Are more rooms really a good investment for the area? Is the renovated Plaza doing big business while the hotels at the Vegas Club and Binion's are empty? I would like to see a casino with a goal of being the King of Craps in Las Vegas. It hasn't been the same since the Horseshoe got pumped and dumped for the WSOP.

Well, the Downtown Grand's experiment (?) we saw during the 2016 Spring Fling seems like a good start -- if only they promoted it. I'm talking about offering a no-vig buy bet on the 4 and 10. We weren't aware of it at all until placing the wagers, not getting charged, and getting full payouts. The dealer said that was the way they are operating now, but he didn't know whether it would be like that next month. Sure seems to me that if they are going to do it, there should be some posting at the table and probably some ad either on the entrance or in the local media. Of course, if they do try to promote craps, they're going to have to offer more than the one table they had staffed the Friday night that we were there!
