    Hi all, walked thru the lobby doors at 10am for Park MGM and with staff members and news cameras. Bunch of suits and dresses chatting and greeting everyone. Walked thru and no smoke odor so that was a bonus. Not busy and may have to check in at Babette’s this evening [emoji16].

    Thanks for posting. Did you notice what are the table limits? Are all the restaurants open? How's the drink service?

    I was watching a vlogger who was livestreaming from the Park MGM this morning and it looks like the Eataly is open too. He also did a second livestream tonight for those interested.

    We had written off Park as a place to stay. But, now with non smoking we will give it a try.

    There does not appear to be any video poker there.

    The ParkMGM website is the best way to check. I can't give a comprehensive answer, but I believe that LaLa Noodles, Best Friend, and a couple others aren't open yet. Bavette's supposedly is.
    I will candidly say that I'm amazed by this part. Given the capacity restrictions and the presumed minimized visitorship, I could see them opening some of the restaurants, but I'm curious to see whether the full marketplace will be open.

    On blackjack it was $10 min and I was playing solo for almost the entire deck then 2 other joined in. 3 players max with the plexiglass. Drink service was frequent since not many players around during the morning opening.

    The middle video porker bar was open and that was popular with the seniors.

    Eatly area was open but not all the places were operating. I hope they would be by this weekend.
    Did not get an opportunity to visit Bavettes but they are accepting reservations.

    Overall if you prefer smoke free and no odor it’s a good hang out. And no fragrance odor/ air freshener smell either.

    Frederick shouldn't quit his day job From no VP, the music is too loud, and rent comparison between LV and SD had me throw in the towel on watching his video any longer.

    Wandered through this evening. It wasn't empty, but certainly wasn't busy. Eataly, Bavette's, Primrose, Juniper Bar, Circular VP Bar (no idea what it's actually called) are all open. Bavette's has a $55 two course prix fixe "Welcome Back Dinner" which might get me to check it out.

    There is definitely video poker, including bartops, open.

    Table limits at 10:30PM on Thursday were $10 for everything - Carnival Games (only recall UTH), BJ, Freebet BJ, Roulette, and Craps. There was one (entirely empty) $25 BJ table. No one was playing in the "Nomad Casino", but it looked like there were a few Bacc games open and maybe a Pai Gow - I didn't venture in to check.

    Just as a quick update, I went to Bavette's the other night. It was excellent as always. Plenty of lower-limit tables but my friend didn't want to do more than $10-15 mins, so we were stuck with 6:5, but I still managed to wind up ahead about $700.

    To paraphrase another blog's post, if you're ever wondering if someone is tailing you, go into the NoMad Casino. The other person there is your tail.

    I barely ever saw anyone there pre-lockdown, and I haven't seen a person in there since they re-opened. It's perfectly fine if you want to play HL and by yourself, though.

    I would just add that Eataly is only kinda-open. The restaurants are, I believe mostly open, but many of the counters/kiosks are not. For example, the cheese/charcuterie area was not open yesterday, nor were the meat and seafood counters. Not hugely shocking, but something to be aware of.

    Is it very obvious to anyone walking in that smoking is not allowed? Wondering what staff would do if someone vaped/smoked anyway.

    Makes no sense to open things that would really only appeal to locals. Eataly Vegas < Eataly LA unless you are just looking to eat a quick meal and drink something overpriced.
