  1. So funny listening to Tim torture Michele with that song loop. My sister says those songs are called “earworms” when they get stuck in your head, and claims the best way to get rid of them is to hum the “I Dream of Jeannie” song out loud, all the way through. If you’re too young to know that song I’m not sure what you’re supposed to do.

    Re: Parabounce wanting to move to where the Ferris Wheel is… that would be quite a Paradome shift, eh?

  2. Your description of the new PH theater makes me think it’s the area where VIMFP was held last year. I don’t think it would need much, if any, modification to be able to be described as a theater. Small theater, but a theater.

    Here’s what I can’t figure out about the Palms: the private equity firms who bought it are among the owners of Caesars Entertainment and it appears that they are starting to “Harr-ify” the property. It seems like that will leave it a bland, soulless outpost. I would suggest they maximize the Maloof brand and have George tie it in with the Rio across the street, since George has always been seen as a smart operator who made a bad bet on the Condo craze and got burned, but was otherwise one of the best. The Rio is doing nothing but sinking anyway, so why not give someone a shot at improving an outpost that Loveman seems to be unable or unwilling to do anything with?

  3. I believe Jeff is correct on the new theater at PHo. That space would be about the right size for a small theater.

    Dumb question though for others who qualify for such a thing – wasn’t that the Diamond Lounge also?
