    Always like Bill's. Hope the remodel goes well and fast. I enjoy small casinos with some character and individuality.

    It will reopen as an "upsacale, lifestyle casino resort" per Gary Loveman. Yawn.

    Wow, didn't think they'd be moving that fast with the Linq and the Bally's Bazzar projects going. I think I will avoid that side of Las Vegas Boulevard in 2013.

    Glad I switched my reservations from the hilton grand behind Flamingo to TI for our Feb trip....I don't want to be over on that side of the Strip either.

    Saw Lucky (from O'Shea's) working at Bill's this past weekend...he just can't buy a break!

    Screw Harrah's for tearing down the low rolling places. Bill's was awesome as was O'Shea's. They are abandoning their low rollers and trying to capture a market that won't be there long. SO pissed off right now.

    They should use the money for something in front of Bally's other than a gypsy flea market.

    I'm not sure I've ever actually been in it, but it's certainly on my list for my next trip, now.

    I shouldn't say this on here, might give casino execs a bad idea, but I am waiting for casinos to start selling naming rights to companies like sports stadiums.

    Bills @ Minute Maid Gambling Hall

    Mall Of America Field at Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome MGM Grand.

    Stuff like that.

    First they kill "Osheas"

    Now they kill Bills. They need to stop smoking bad weed.

    The Barbary Coast kicked ass and I liked those old rooms. I may have to stay here on my January trip even though I am booked at PH. That's how much affinity I have for BC.

    At any rate, there WILL be atleast one more drunken night of the Steak and Eggs Night Owl Special on our trip in two weeks or the trip myself and Big Sack take towards the end of January.

    Anyone know why Bill's isn't included on my TR card? I was there a few weeks ago and they use there own Rewards cards. But i thought they were owned by Harrah's/Caesars?, if not, will this change after the remodel and include Bill's (name change) to my TR card? Would give me another option, especially the best location for people like myself who frequent casinos from PH north to Harrah's and across the street to Caesars.

    Once they get rid of the low rollers and most of the comps for intermeadiate players, they will begin to downsize the casino's because they won't be profitable. They will add more clubs, fancy eateries, and shopping outlets. Then they will wonder why the visitor demographics have changed.
