    I think you should take comfort this was a smart move. I'm def suffering some PTSD after trip there last weekend. Just a weird combo of annoying stuff and OCD worry about getting sick from the trip now. It was worth it since I had some crazy luck and a great time with Borat, but I wouldn't do it again.

    Thanks. Vegas is my fantasy place and I hate real life intruding there. Plus I'm only an hour away by plane so it's not a big deal. Just sucks as I want so normalcy back and that definitely isn't happening here in California either for some time. I appreciate everyone's reports. But definitely won't be going until the bars are open at least. So I'll be contect to read other's reports and watching youtube.

    40th birthday for me Oct 13 - I haven't given up hope yet but man it's dwindling. Plus there's still the border issue which I didn't in my wildest dreams think would still be a thing come August.

    Thank you everybody all for your reviews. I have been chomping at the bit to make a (7.5 hour) speed run to LV from Central Cal, but have held back.
    My heart says Yes, but my brain says Wait.
    With everything closed or halfway open, I already know the answer, but still not enjoying the near to mid term prospects.

    I'm like many of the posters. I booked my 8/11 trip before the surge but am now 90% sure that I won't go. Too much at stake and not worth the risk. I may consider going to Boston Encore for 2 nights :)

    You probably already know this, but currently the hotel at Encore Boston is only open 4 nights a week, Thurs - Sun nights. In August they're cutting back to only Thurs - Sat nights.

    Just curious....is it because of demand being so low?

    My husband and I thought about making the 9.5 hour drive to Encore for a few days in August also. Room rates were pretty decent, but we decided against it given the limited number of days they are open, and we weren't crazy about the idea of driving Interstate 95 on the weekend. Thinking we may try MGM National Harbor or The Borgata instead. Or, we just may stay home, sad as that is.

    its only open certain hours, we checked it on Sunday, I believe after 10am. It was closed when we tried to take it at 7am on return from Wynn Shitters. ;)

    I spent a lot of time at those rows!! Hit a good number of quads and multipliers in one session but never a quad and a multiplier. I didn't use those handwashing stations, I carried my own sanitizer and used it like 1,000 times a day! My hands were raw by the end of the trip. I kept forgetting to bring moisturizer also.

    I appreciate those sharing their experiences. I was booked for June but moved to Sep. Crossing my fingers but who knows? I am not a pool person or a foodie so it may be ok. But honestly I am just scared...Still have not gone to a local here in Az..

    I assume it's demand. As far as I know there's no regulatory reason the hotel can't be open during the week.

    And I don't know how they assessed demand, maybe just based on walk-ins to the casino. But seems like everybody else I've been looking at opened up their booking systems for people to make reservations and then changed their open dates later, once they had an idea.

    Yeah, I was surprised. I'm looking for someplace to go for 10 nights to get the hell out of the house. I can't get upfront comps at Encore Boston, but I would have considered it because the rates are low compared to normal and it's only 30 mins away. But not if I can't do 10 nights in a row.

    So I have reservations at MGM Springfield and at Borgata and CP in AC.

    I'm driving out to Springfield (90 mins away) tomorrow just to see which slot machines they have turned on. If they have a couple of playable machines, that's where I'm gonna end up. AC isn't a horrible drive (5.5 hrs) but I'd really rather not have to do it.

    I understand wanting to get out of the house. We're in the same boat. Good luck to you and hope you find that Springfield will suffice for now. Hoping we all return to Vegas sooner rather than later.

    I’d mentioned earlier how Javier’s Orange County location had a major outbreak. Nothing was learned from that incident because their Los Angeles location is currently going through an outbreak even though they have no plans to close. I’d be cautious about eating at the Las Vegas location.

    Hey Chuck, give us a little report please. I'm thinking of going up to Springfield in a couple weeks but I'll need to figure out what's open and not. And I'm not sure what you're planning but 10 days in Springfield and you're gonna need another vacation. And I like Springfield.
