When casinos opened in Las Vegas on June 4th, Stations did not open 4 of it's casinos, Texas Station, Palms, Fiesta Rancho, Fiesta Henderson.

The rumor is that Boyd is buying Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson and that the owners of Dotty's parlors are buying Texas Station. with Palms currently on the market.

I have been wondering if Eastside Cannery is going to reopen soon or be sold.

I would invest in the Rampart before putting money into all those dumps, which are not in the best part of town. Exception The Palms.

Have you been to Eastside Cannery in the last year prior to the shutdown? That place has zero regular customers anymore. Used to be one of my favorite little local casinos. Boyd completely gutted and destroyed it. So not surprising they don't know what to do with it.

I never understood why Stations (Red Rock Resorts) poured so much money into the Palms until I heard about the plan to build a baseball stadium where the Rio is.

Then it started to make sense about the long term investment RRR was making.

Sure, this Covid mess has eliminated all Vegas talk about everything except Covid, but I think a year from now when the world is sane again, Vegas baseball will come back to life.

I honestly think Vegas would be a lousy baseball city. 81 games is a lot more than the city would support.

The city isn't supporting the Raiders either. The visitors are.

To be honest, I thought the same thing about hockey.

For one, politically incorrect as it may be, I figured Latinos, of which Las Vegas has a large population aren't into hockey. Seemed like the same situation as Phoenix, a large Latino population translating into near bottom NHL hockey attendance most years.

Although I won't be a Raiders fan, I have no doubt Vegas can support an NFL team. People will come from California for 8 games, plus visiting team's fans will plan road trips around a game in Vegas. It was actually that way in Phoenix for years with the Cardinals. They would have sell outs when the Cowboys or Green Bay, or Chicago or other teams that travel well, but half the stadium was the other teams fans.

Baseball?? 81 games in summer with 100+ degree temps? Again, The Diamondbacks are probably a good measuring stick. How do they draw year in and year out with 81 baseball games? And while Phoenix is compatible with climate and things, they are a much bigger city/Metro area with many more people to draw from.

Arizona is an excellent example. Vegas will also have a climate controlled ballpark.
