    I noticed that too joe. Seems weird without some not as to opening at a later date.
    Still amazed you can go to your account or Boyd website with no generic statement/update if for nothing else than to keep the interest up for customers.

    I'm so pleased to read that Jokers will continue to exist. I had guessed it wouldn't ever reopen.

    "While buffets will remain closed,"
    ....really am curious as to what/when Boyd will decide about the future of its buffets...
    For example, with no coffee shop, the only sit down dining options for breakfast at ST are TGIF, its food court or the small area near the snack bar which had very few breakfast items listed, albeit excellent burgers.
    ..and how do you enforce social distancing at a food court??

    I think it would be great if they could convert the space at each property TO a coffee shop. MSS has only the buffet and 777's breakfast ends at 5:30 or 6 am. Fremont coffee shop is on the other side of their current buffet location but is small and dark. ST used to have a great coffee shop back in the day. Lots of specials and late night dining. Of course they also had a great diner upstairs with at table jukeboxes and great malts until someone figured that was silly. Who's silly now?

    I am. Finally recall it was Mary’s Diner. Great breakfasts and good burgers, rings, etc. And cheap enough we paid for it rather than bother with pursing a comp.

    Well it wouldn’t be hard to seat socially at Sams buffet as not normally busy. Maybe they’ll initially open the steak house more hours with an expanded menu and then add the buffet.

    Not Boyd, but they are saying on one of the local boards that the local Horseshoe will be opening their buffet area with sit-down menu service, at least for a while.

    No Noodle Exchange. :( It's small, so I imagine they just don't have the space to distance people. I would order and take to me room if it was an option. Hope they will be able to reopen before I get there.

    That's too bad. Looks like Al's Oyster Bar in the Orleans, a similar set-up, isn't opening either.
