    I share your thoughts. I've stayed at Cal for 30 nights or so since the beginning of August and the food situation is awful. I end up eating at 4Q/Binion's often, plus other independent restaurants downtown. In addition to weird hours and monotonous food choices, the service at Market St and Paradise is usually gruff at best. And Tony Roma's always has a line so I've only made it there once. There is no Boyd restaurant open at 3pm when I am ready to eat (keeping east coast time). It was a sick prank they played on me when they gave me my one and only gold card in mid-September.

    The nice restaurants downtown seem to routinely run out of prime time reservations...that seems to indicate that 2nd Street Grill would get enough business if opened.

    Nice meeting you the other day @Ty's friend :)

    Thanks for sharing. Thought you were taking your wife this time??? I've been watching Columbo recently another Henry Mancini composed theme score.

    We do. In Texas you’re home once you cross the border but I didn’t have internet to announce it so I waited. :bang:

    That was the airport while waiting for the shuttle to the parking garage. (did you think it was my driveway with the neighbors :wave: :headbang::woohoo::wiggle:all turning out for the big “WELCOME Back!! :blink: and the house was across the street?):poke:

    I almost forgot (actually until just now I had) my tickets @Ty so graciously procured on opening day at Circa casino. We had discussed the opportunity to have some from each casino one reopening in June. But it was too late. Or maybe we never had the opportunity to cash out that first day. :cry:
    And @jimboguy was only getting handpays :bang: So he was really no help.
    However he got me 2! ORIGINAL OPENING DATE !!!

    So before I put 1 on e-bay I thought I would :stir: help out the board
    and me and
    @Ty.
    Will do a reverse bid starting at 10,000 $. It will go DOWN a penny a day. You have to ask yourself as to when will someone pull the trigger and purchase this one time, unique memorabilia from Circa’s initial hours.
    Remember, many :cowboy: famous c:santa: celebrities :lock: were at the opening so there is possibly some cross :popcorn:contamination here in these days and times. :eek:
    So don’t wait a year or it will still be listed at 9,996.35. You only save 365 cents!!! Buy now. :headbang:
    (think how great a gift this would be for your :woohoo: grandchildren.....or at least a date when you want them to drop a bid to my :wiggle: grandchildren)
    Seriously. 1/3 of your purchase price goes to the board . & free shipping. :)
    (Paper clips were photo shopped to block various codes and identifying symbols to thwart bots and bad guys that think like dmr
    so order quick before someone figures the code!! )

    The value will be lost 180 days after it was issued. That's a huge loss of value. I may be willing to make an offer at that time if it's not sold. What's your thoughts about this idea?

    Actually, a ticket for the 1923 World Series lost value in the 9th. :cry:
    It’s all about nostalgia.
    Remembering when your grandfather remembered about “the change” :eek:downtown. A piece of history.
    You don’t deal with history. You hope to not repeat it. o_O
