    I have had a few gf's over the years try to get me hooked on coffee because they were. The first one tried and by the end what I was getting could only be considered coffee by the widest definition possible. Was there coffee in it? Sure. Was it more like something that someone accidently spilled a little coffee in to as they walked by, yes.
     
    I hope things are normal by then

    I'm sorry that they were insensitive to your needs. Maybe the sensitivity improve.

    I could care less about most of these other than more cocktail waitresses. But I don't want to pull my phone out every time I want a drink.

    Not sure why coffee should be free but other drinks not free. I don't like coffee but love other things.

    Staffing is the issue
    Couple observations from my April and May trips:
    1.There were two windows open at the cage even in prime time.
    Pre pandemic there were 4-5 open and the wait was usually minimal.
    In May, the line occasionally had 20+ people waiting.

    2.Tried calling the Sky Suites concierge from my room several times.
    After 10- 15 min I hung up with no answer. The hotel operator was about the same.
    Just called SS concierge from home about dining reservations for upcoming trip.
    No answer !!
    Host took care of it but I don't like to bother him with stuff I can easily take care of online. Unfortunately ,online showed no availability several restaurants.


    3.With more restaurants opening, it should improve but the lines at the Patisserie went back to Alibi late at night .
    Really hope they get this figured out soon.

    Depending when I stroll downstairs in the morning, I always found it quicker to get an coffee (or irish coffee) at the slots. Not the point of your post I realize though.

    I just stayed at Aria for the first time earlier this month, and I will say that, given the level of property that Aria is supposed to be, I was very surprised as to how infrequent the drink service was.

    I'm hoping this was a lingering effect of the pandemic and temporary staffing issues, rather than the norm...

    Unfortunately it varies from shift to shift. I've been at the tables and had someone bringing me a ginger ale every ten minutes. I've also spent an hour waiting for a refill.

    Are they using glasses again or just plastic cups? I could not stand that at Aria.

    I believe that most or all of my mixed drinks on the casino floor were in plastic.

    They were plastic the other week. I'm not really too particular about what my ginger ale comes in.

    At the beginning, it was a hygiene thing, but at this point I think it's a combination of environmental concerns (despite glass being reusable, it takes a lot of energy to clean them, and the plastic can be recycled), and safety (plastic can't break, after all!).
