So on February 4, you’re going to close, with plans to re-open next year as a hip new boutique property. Pretty big move. How are you feeling about it? GREEN. IS. GOOD. Caesars Entertainment has been honored for our efforts by: EPA, Uptime Institute, Audubon and Travelife. Smart for Business. Good for You. Necessary for the Planet.

Congratulations on that. Are you at all nervous about a $185 million renovation that will include a rooftop pool and nightclub? You’ve been around since 1979, after all.

No need to shout. Victorian Café Steak and Eggs Special, $6.99.

Well, it’s nice to see that some of your classic features are still intact. You’ll always be the Barbary Coast to me. SLUSH BAR. Frozen Drinks with a Twist. SLUSH BEER PONG NOW OPEN.

That sounds terrible. What else ya got? Don’t Repent Just Yet … Sin City Brewing Co. Is Open! Give in to Sin with an icy cold Sin City brew. Confess your love of beer daily, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Better. Listen, I know we’re not communicating very well here, but I really just want to know what it feels like to be getting the changeover, again, to have your personality kinda stripped away, again, in order to become something new and fresh and hopefully popular. It must be difficult. How are you holding up? WE HAVE ROOMS AVAILABLE.

That makes me a little bit sad. CHECK IN OR LIKE US ON Foursquare using your smartphone to earn our badges and special deals!
