    Too much like the ones over at the Orleans, perhaps? :)

    That little corner is so dark right now without the jester lighting the area up and the entrance boarded up. The jester had a big piece missing from the front of the face and I actually thought someone may have vandalized it.

    I don't like Harrah's but have always appreciated the jester. I hope they're not de-theming.

    Is there much "theme" within the casino?


    Considering they made a slot for them this year, doubt they are going anywhere.

    Well yes, but it's not overly prominent like it is at The Orleans.

    The Nola Mardi Gras theme used to be more prominent at Harrah's. They have been slowly detheming over the years. It's a shame. You would think a party theme would be an easy one to do and promote.

    Not much evidence of a new orleans theme anymore.
    Jesters by Carnaval court have been gone for a while.
    Carnaval tower rooms are now Valley rooms.
    And the front bar and party pit are more country western themes than anything else.
