    For my upcoming trip i bought a VIP concert ticket that includes a pre show diner( no mention of the restaurant choice were made)

    I got an email a few days ago with all the info and its at the Old Homestead steak house ( 3 choices between steak, salmon, chicken)+ a first course and desert


    I write back telling them im not gonna go to the meal and ask if they could offer me any other choice i mentionned i would more than happy with a buffet or a voucher for the food court, serendipity or the PH restaurant and i dont mind if its a much lesser value than the planned meal

    I get my reply tonight and they tell me they cant switch the restaurant for me but if im willing to decline the old homestead meal they could give me a pair of tickets for the high roller instead lol

    I took it as its better than nothing at all but not by much lol What a deal

    Trading a meal for a wheel, lol! Just curious...why wouldn't you want to have a meal at the Old Homestead steak house? I'm guessing it's not that great?

    Arent they giving away high roller tickets for blackjacks now? one other member did verify they did it for suited BJs at Flamingo...if that became easier, then a dinner at Old Homestead would be better obv.

    Not to be a snot here, but why did you go for (and pay for) the dinner without knowing where it was or what kind of food it was? I mean it could have been the Circus buffet or McDonalds!

    In my not so humble opinion, Old Homestead was a very good sight-unseen selection.

    Definitely a bad trade; the food is very good at Old Homestead but it has zero atmosphere. Very noisy location.
