We will soon be left with a large – and useless – collection of tokens for the Palms car wash. It is closing the end of the month. Brad will really miss it – he likes to keep the Frugal Breeze spanking clean and shiny. If you see us in a casino, ask for some tokens – Brad will carry some in his pocket and I’ll have some in my purse. However, I’m not counting on it being operational right to the end of June. It always broke down frequently – and I can’t see them spending money to repair it if it breaks down now.
Lots of other changes at the Palms. We won’t miss the Playboy Club which has closed but we will miss Gardunos. No date has been set yet for that announced closure but it is coming. The Earl of Sandwich is scheduled to open July 4, in the former Kids Quest area of the Food Court.
Ellis Island sure can make additions in tiny spaces. They tucked a new sandwich shop in a small nook that in the past has seen a small band playing and more recently tournaments held. And some seating has been removed in the little sports book to make room for a couple of poker tables.
Now for some good news – and some lost faith restored: If enough people complain a casino might give back some benefits they have taken away. Caesars Entertainment has brought back the Tier Benefit for Vegas shows, and not just for Seven Stars. Both Seven Stars and Diamonds can receive 2 free show tickets per month, and Platinums will be entitled to a Buy-One-Get-One-Free for one show per calendar month.
