Do you know why they picked New York New York? Seems like an odd choice so Iím wondering what the reason might be. Maybe the layout is easier for them to operate in a more limited capacity or something.

I have heard multiple reasons. But price point to operate makes the most sense.

Also I believe they all operate through different holding companies so it may have something to do with that. I'm bitter certain of the last part.

Makes sense. New York New York is just the casino I pass through when Iíve got a cheap room at the Exacalibur and Iím headed to MGM. Those were the days Smile

Just got a voicemail today, I got a conference call tomorrow for inhouse event in September and I am in the running for an event in October. Staying with my prediction for December as not an end, but the beginning of Big Events nationwide.

Shows open this week in Branson.

As I said from the start this is a political issue.

On another note though Broadway thinks September 6th is their goal and that is a vERY optimistic date.

Oh which Branson shows? I may need to plan a trip. Pigeon Forge will probably be opening soon as well.

Almost all. Certainly by June it will be all.

Restaurants are open in Branson. I have no clue what will happen. IF tourists come back or not who can say? To be an optimist the people who come to Branson drive, and are from a region of the country that is not hit hard by this.

If it is a good thing or a bad thing I have no idea, and I am stopping making predictions because I have been pretty wrong. Obviously I am not a mentalist. I did not account for the political fallout.

It is before the big time of year, but there are a LOT of places that are really hurting already.

So many shows operate on the ragged edge that I hope they get by this year.

More news... Frozen has announced it will not be returning to Broadway. Iím guessing thatís the first of many to make that announcement.

I heard about that but even more interesting to me is that Disney Theatrical already has several new Broadway projects in the pipeline including "The Princess Bride", "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", "The Jungle Book", "Hercules", and even "Alice in Wonderland" based on the Tim Burton film.

Broadway seems to be planning on 2021. Ouch.

Pennís latest podcast he talks about trying to make decisions about performing shows and filming Fool Us in August and September.

Branson and Pigeon Forge are opening up - silver dollar city and Dollywood later this month.

Have any Vegas shows announced a re-opening date?

Disney World opens in July but will be interesting to see if any indoor shows are running when they open.

SDC opens June 13th & 14th for season pass holders and the 15th for the general public.

It will be interesting to say the least. No indoor shows at SDC, but outdoor performing venues will be open.

I will pass along my thoughts after we open.

I will tell you how this is going in Branson with no judgement, just observation.

At some restaurants that have corporate ownership, the things look MUCH different than those without. At some places the staff does not even wear masks. No kidding. (Also not naming any place so don't ask.) Again not making right/wrong judgement, just observations is all.

At places that have corporate presence the social distancing stuff at least is attempted for sure and to varying degrees otherwise.

As far as the tourists themselves go it is not even a worry. They could not seem to care less about it. While maybe 5-10% have masks on the vast majority are over it. Older people are the ones wearing them, and the only judgment I'd make is that probably isn't a bad thing. I am getting the impression from the huge percentage of them that they are over this and sick of the political crap that fuels it. If you don't think it is political good for you, I am telling you what the people who show up here are saying.

In Las Vegas The D opened up and within 10 seconds or so all the guidelines went out the window. As I said earlier and maybe it was edited, people are just not going to put up with this. Maybe they are right and maybe they are wrong but one thing is for certain a pretty large contingent of people are just sick of being out of work, sick of being confined while those who confine us are not and just going back to life as they want to.

The other interesting thing that happened was the unemployment numbers were FAR better than almost anyone expected. This will fuel the desire/need for entertainers so if you have not paid attention to that you should. It is sort of a signal of sorts about how the economy will react.

Again read no judgment into what I have said. I am making NO predictions as I have been pretty wrong across this whole thing. I think this thing has gotten WAY further than I ever imagined people would let it get so my predictive skills are pretty abysmal.

Yeah, same here in Las Vegas. Many casinos are open now including restaurants. After checking out several of the properties only about 5-10% of customers are wearing masks and even though I was literally looking for it I am not seeing 6 feet of social distancing. Like Danny said the attitude, which is exactly as I predicted, is "we are over this and will proceed as before all of this."

Lake Mead which normally draws 20,000 people on the weekends under normal conditions, has been drawing 40-50,000 visitors per weekend both during the self-isolation and more now this past weekend.

I've been now to several restaurants where the staff are supposed to be wearing their masks at all times, and it is strong;y recommended customers do as well. Literally none of them (staff) were wearing masks...properly. Yes, they all had masks on, but they were either worn down around their neck, or fastened at the ears, but the maks was dropped down under their chin.

California this last weekend was much the same from what we saw.

I had said the people would endure 6-8 weeks of this and that would be it, and they are screaming that in spades. It was actually the same across all ages, as I thought the older 55+ would be more compliant with the masks and distancing, but it does not appear so.

Illinois schools and other states have been given the ok to re-open for summer and the 20-21 school year is expected to on as normal. I am getting reports for the majority of states that business seems back in swing even though some restrictions may be in place. Traffic certainly is back on the roads, highways, and freeways as well.
