Went to the Rio today for the first time since reopening. I know it is Wednesday, but the place was so empty that there is no doubt the employees outnumbered the guests. We were only there because we usually pick up our gifts (for locals) at Caesar's, but they now allow you to also pick up at the Rio. Caesar's is a lot more inconvenient in terms of parking and walking. Not much was open in terms of restaurants/bars. The two gift days are Monday and Wed so will be back next week, but it is somewhat sad at this point. Also was reminded that the Palms is still a cash flow nightmare with no end in sight.
