    I think this is pretty funny fallout from PGP.....

    As many of you know, Jim Murren et al., in their quest to pad their bonuses, decided that a 3,000 room hotel (Monte Carlo in this case) on the Vegas strip should not have room service after 2pm. Chris Rock recently performed at the Park Theater, and apparently they put him up at Monte Carlo (an odd choice in itself, though Monte Carlo does have some 4K+ sq ft penthouses). Chris found out about the new room service policy, and not only tweeted about it (check out the top reply - Cosmopolitan's official account saying "fun fact: we have 24 hour room service" lol) but also brought it up during his performance:

    Even better, according to an article in the Review Journal (scroll down to "Not Funny"), Murren himself was at the show and wasn't amused by what Chris said about MGM's penny pinching ways on stage in front of thousands of his customers.

    Personally, I am glad that somebody is publicly giving PGP the crap it deserves. Maybe it will get through to Murren that what he is doing with closing cafes and room service early is going to start getting some backlash.

    Even the guy who wrote the article is confused. It's 2:00pm, not 2:00am. I thought the same thing when I noticed 2:00pm on all the room-service stuff at Luxor. I thought it must be a typo. Nope.

    I noticed that. Honestly he probably thought it was a typo too, as did I when I first realized this a few months ago. It's something that nobody can really believe...like of all the places on the planet to discontinue 24 hour room service, you would think Vegas would be the last.
