All within the last month, there was the Regency in Laughlin, the Oasis in
Mesquite, and now Fitzgerald's in Reno.

Hadn't been there in years, but the Fitz in Reno seemed a sad enterprise
even then... Don't think it was a Barden property. Things are looking
up, though. I just heard Golden Gate has sexy go go dancers. Wonder if
they'll be dancing on the same counter where they serve the $1.99 shrimp
cocktails.

Isn't the Fitzgerald's closure temporary while they do a massive remodel?
I had heard it was only going to be closed for a year or two or something
like that.

From what I've heard Randy Black is "re-tooling" and remodeling the Oasis.
It is most likely NOT closed yet, althogh I've heard the same thing. He is
still running TV spots for the OASIS here in LV. Anyone in or around
Mesquite that can confirm that it is "actually" closed already?

Who heard a new name will accompany the Oasis on re-open.

It's a phased shut down. They're delinquent on a loan and had to get
permission from the lender for a temporary closure. They lost $900,000
recently and are trying to shift guests to the other properties while
cutting payroll and other expenses. Apparently, Eureka is expanding in
Mesquite and eating their lunch.

I've stayed at the Oasis. I think it was $19 a night at the time, but they
comped your room if you played a few hours of poker. Plus they'd give you a
couple of buffet passes. The staff were all exceptionally friendly, like you
were a guest in their home or something. My room wasn't anything special,
but it was on the second floor overlooking the courtyard pool, which
actually looked pretty nice lit up at night. It was a great place to spend a
few days on a low budget.

Yep. Bobby (poker manager for all of Randy's Mesquite cardrooms last I
checked) knows how to take care of the players. During Jan Fishers' "Oasis
Open" tournaments the rooms were $15, but comped if you played in the
tourneys, and Bobby, Jan, Linda J., John Buchanan, and others (including me
when I was up there) had pockets full of buffet passes, and would give you
one for EVERY meal, if you so desired. You just had to use them 6 hours
apart :)

If, in fact, Oasis is gone, or even gone "as we knew it" it's a big loss for
poker and poker players.

in this morning's rj (review journal-las vegas) they had a pix of a
worker dismantling the machines at the oasis. in the initial closure
announcement, it had been stated that the oasis was closing the casino and
restaurants..with the hotel remaining open. however, the article this
morning states that most of the hotel rooms were being closed! 500 people
out of work.

Bailout. Seriously. At least a casino isn't going to be littering the
countryside with automobiles. We are about to fund the worst ecological
disaster in history.

Christ, what would it take to keep these job centers open? 10-20
million tops? Lets DO this!
