In a few weeks, I'll be making my first trip downtown since Mermaids and Le Bayou closed. Not only will I miss always walking away a winner on my favorite Monkees machine at Mermaids and STILL getting beads at Le Bayou for waiting for a hopper fill, I'll miss the incredibly rapid cocktail service. Some of my best Las Vegas memories were hanging out with friends and winding up with two or three drinks at a time because the waitresses appreciated a group of tipping customers. Now, like a drunken delusion, they are gone. We actually planned a special trip to get to both of them as soon as we heard they were heading out. So now where will we get hammered? Drink service downtown has always been spotty at best in other casinos. Where have you gone downtown and had superior (aka FAST) service?
