I came to Foxwoods to see the MGM Grand because it hadn't been built when I last visited Foxwoods in 2006. I stopped by a player's club booth to see if I could score some free slot play, but they weren't that glad to see me, so I needn't rush back. I did spend most of my time in the MGM Grand and wasn't disappointed. The place is beautiful, and Junior's Express rapidly became my favorite haunt, whether it was cheesecake and coffee for breakfast or half a sandwich and a diet soda for supper. We had breakfast at the buffet Monday morning, but it was half an hour getting seated although there were only twenty people ahead of us. I asked a member of the staff if people were out sick and he replied "No, just the usual Monday morning understaffing." The tables were not spaced far enough apart and everyone struggled to get up and down at the table without bumping the people at the next table. We had stopped at Mohegan Sun on our way to Foxwoods and had lunch there, and there were no such problems.
I wanted to have lunch at the Foxwoods buffet the day after our breakfast disaster, but my wife suggested driving the twenty minutes back to Mohegan Sun, so that's what we did. The executives in the Foxwoods board room would do well to try a Monday morning buffet at Foxwoods and experience the deficiencies for themselves. As far as gambling goes, I won enough to keep gambling, but Foxwoods doesn't have my favorite machine, Diamond Quest, by Konami. It's the only slot that offers a top prize of one thousand free spins. They also didn't have Blackbeard's Treasure by AGS, so I felt the slot selection could have been better. Now that I've seen the MGM Grand, I don't know what would compel me to drive the six hours back to Foxwoods.
