    Harrahs Cherokee (NC) sent an email saying they are opening May 15 by invitation only. Then announced they are pushing back opening to June.

    I don’t think any Nevada casinos can do any “invitation only” events. From what I understand the way the gaming laws are all casino areas that are open have to be open to anyone legally allowed to gamble. (Similar to how they can’t restrict someone from walking into the high limit room). I guess they could temporarily change that though. I have only seen tribal casinos doing this so far but they have different regulations.

    I have also received a few emails from various non Vegas Nevada casinos saying they are opening May 22nd so seems to be the target date.

    The 50% capacity is no big deal either. If any of you have been to Vegas on New Year’s Eve, you have seen what near full capacity is. Then imagine around half that number- closer to what a typical busy weekend would look like. Plus with the bars and lounges closed and many still not venturing out I don’t see this being a problem at all.

    Caesar’s host called today to say Hi and let us know it looked like they would be open June 1, but still sounded a bit uncertain. Anyone else hearing a firm date yet?

    That sounds promising. They haven’t told the dealers anything yet.

    Ok, you guys know it takes a lot to shut me up, but this quote from the attached article kinda left me speechless!

    https://news.yahoo.com/could-city-lost-wages-persevere-110005880.html

    Nicolette Pantaleo worked as a party pit dancer at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino for two years before being laid off March 13. The 29-year-old Nevada native said she's taking online financial classes and voice-over lessons with the hopes of landing a job as an investment banker or narration artist.

    “I have no desire to dance anymore,” she said. “I had a lot of success as a professional dancer in Vegas over the last 11 years. I’ll cherish that memory. But I don’t know whether I still have a future here.”

    Landing a job as an investment banker or narration artist....wow...

    It’s an interesting article but it seems so many of them are painting such a pessimistic picture for the future. It’s sad and unnecessary. We don’t know how it will evolve so why not take a more positive outlook? Most all the strip dealers I know are getting paid as much or more on unemployment every week so they are doing fine. Everything that has opened back up is busy quickly so not sure why all these media outlets are portraying the opposite? People want to get back to enjoying what they miss...so I’m optimistic that trend continues. Also, casinos are never at full capacity even in big events so 50% is more like their normal traffic anyway.

    I think I know how Nicolette feels. I’ve been considering a career change myself lately....it’s either going to be Senator or Starbucks Barista.

    You can do it as long as you take some online courses like Nicolette is doing.

    They know more than we do. :)

    And this isn't a "get back to normal" in months. This will take years. Best to set expectations realistically, especially when the travel/hospitality industry's recovery will take a long time and unemployment will eventually be reduced. It's clear the resorts won't need (or want) the number of employees they had pre-shutdown. The employees know that. They're right to be pessimistic.
