    Trying to get people to go back, I'd guess. I wouldn't be surprised if they have some updated or new gizmo's they want to show off.

    I bar is no longer relevant and the Rio has been on the slow decline, to the point where I don't think they compete with other off strip properties.
    What was cutting edge 7 years ago with that Microsoft Table top technology has been quickly replaced by mobile enablement on phones and tablets.

    The only thing I like about ibar anymore is the scantly dressed cocktail servers they had. The "I" candy made the $15 drink prices palatable.
    With better buffets, bars, and the loss of Masquerade in the Sky, I don't see any reason to visit that CET property outside of the VooDoo Lounge.

    Very true. Rio used to be the go-to for my annual "Let's lay by the pool when it's hotter than the hubs of hell" trip. But with no topless pool, cut back buffets, and a property that's showing A LOT of wear and tear, I'm doing the Flamingo this summer instead. The property no longer makes up for the fact the strip is a shuttle ride away.
