Thank you, Silverton!

Ellis Island responded immediately to our e-mail, and it seemed like we had had a good thing going. Then came the silence. Efforts to contact Four Queens and Hooters were met with no reply. We faced similar bad luck with Treasure Island, The Cannery, and Bill's Gamblin' Hall. Was BZA not good enough for Vegas? Flashbacks to Bellagio suddenly entered our minds. We had presented our player's card to the dealer at a $10 minimum table and were told that we wouldn't be rated unless we wagered at least $25 a hand. That's akin to saying our money is not wanted there. Take the damn card and say thank you! Go ahead and mark down that we're not betting enough, but don't say it to our face. What if we had a streak, good or bad, that ended up in our betting $50 a hand? Are you going to ask for our card then?

Silverton has come through and restored our beliefs in all that is good about Las Vegas. We are about to blow $2k of our hard earned money on the farce that one can win big in this town, and the least a paid communications director can do is send us a thank you note ahead of time. They were told that "esteemed" members of BZA were heading their way. Did we have to mention that one of us is coming on the heels of receiving a fat $100k+ check? All we asked for were "any helpful tips or recommendations for our stay." Melinda Filstrup at the Silverton was kind enough to oblige us.


That's great news! Please check out the following.
  • Twin Creeks Steakhouse.  Great food.
  • Mi Casa Mexican restaurant. We have a large selection of Tequilas and a new menu (menu launched last week).
  • Seasons Buffet
  • Mermaid Lounge
  • Sundance Cafe
  • SWAY - June 4th we have a pool party with a special performance by Haleamano featuring The Mighty Diamonds.
  • Silverton Rewards - We just launched a new and improved Players Club on April 1st.  Sign up for a players card for dining and gaming offers.

I hope this information helps and we look forward to your stay.

The My Morning Jacket concert at my house was fantastic, and I'm ready to announce my final Monday selections, but I would like to thank the Silverton one last time for the satisfactory reply I received. As you can see, all it takes is a boilerplate cut and paste job to please BZA.
