Although I fully appreciate everything you have done and are doing to downtown, I implore you to try and keep the idntities of the properties decidedly different. It seems the GG is becoming more like the D, concerned the LVC redo will be more of the same. I miss the Mermaids, and La Bayou vibe, and sinse their closing downtown hasn't been the same for us. We have started making the transformation back to the strip. The things that made us love downtown seem to be disappearing under the canopy. Whereas Fremont East is changing for the better, it seems the opposite under the canopy. The frozen drinks are all the same, weak and lacking in character, we soo miss the concoctions of la bayou, and the snack bar at mermaids as well as the free beads, and spins. Are there others out there that feel the same? I would ask you to post.
