Did you read about this?

Did anyone else read about the Siena's new "plan"? Firing 18 of their dealers and changing the format to a "Party Pit"?

I know times are tough, but really? I'll miss the wonderful cocktail service and low table limits.

Thoughts?

Where did you hear this? I'd be interested in details. I like Siena because the location is wonderful and the casino aspect is low-key. "Party pit" doesn't sound like it would attract the same customers.

It was in the 8/19 issue of rgj.com. Shocking. Harrah's attempted this as I recall (I don't recall visiting, but do remember the ads). Well, that didn't work, did it.

I'm with you, I enjoyed the Siena, still visit the spa, and loved the swift and stiff cocktail service.

Will be interesting to see what the future holds.

Peddler, it's someplace you and I are too old for. Loud music, flashing lights, and sometimes fog machines or foam parties. Some of the places have all you can drink nights. Like all things, it varies with the establishment.

I see Exclaiber in Vegas has a Party Pit.

Never been to one either.....too old as well. Bring me good booze, a solid gamble, and a great steak.

Sorry, Peddler! I forgot the scantily clad women who are younger than my daughter.
