    A lot of you know me from my contributions when I used to work for the Plaza (my biggest career mistake) but I wanted to update everyone to let you know that I have landed a role of Player Development Executive for Ellis Island Casino and Brewery!!
    I started a little bit ago but just getting around to update social media now, I am thoroughly enjoying it! I am learning a lot about beer because Ellis Island is the biggest Microbrewery in Nevada with over a million glasses of beers sold just last year!
    Let me know if you have any questions for me!!
    Looking forward to being back in touch with everyone!

    Glad you are back Yolla. I'll be back in LV at the end of September. What day could I catch you at EI?
    Congrats on your new position. Ellis Island has taken a step up.
    Good luck. :beer::beer:

    Congrats on your successful escape from the Plaza! I've never had the pleasure of visiting Ellis Island (even though I always planned on stopping by), even back when the Imperial Palace was my home base. I don't stay on the strip anymore because I refuse to pay resort fees and EI's large selection of yummy microbrews would require me to stay at the Super 8 next door, just in case I had 4 or 5 too many. But thanks to Uber and Lyft, maybe I'll be able to stop by even while I'm staying at the Fremont!

    Congratulations on the new job. Someone was asking about the cost of growlers.

    Dr.

    Congratulations on your new position. EI does a lot of things right for the target market. We usually stop in every trip to eat and gamble, and always enjoy our time there.

    I'm kind of surprised your at EI, I didn't imagine they did much in the area of player development. I always thought the slot club was all they had.

    Have good paytables.

    I don't think that will be an issue. :)
