They've got a new buffet, but watch out! First off, if you're not a 'privileged' member, you've got to wait until they are all taken care of first, no matter if you were next in line. They don't even give you the silverware from "that side" of the register counter. And you will be seated outside the roped-off area (which is no better seating, except that everyone knows you're 'big money'). If you pay with a credit or debit card, bam! they gotchya' again, tacking on a 16% "gratuity", but it won't show on the receipt. No one will tell you this. It's in the fine print, at the very bottom of the receipt that they place on the table when they seat you. You must read the receipt (if you remember to pick it up at all), which is usually after your meal (and after you have left your server a tip). Very sneaky and underhanded. As for the casino, it's all smoke, rather small, and meant for the rich and those not worried about losing big bucks. There are only a handful of less-than-25cent slots, which of course are always busy. If there's a recession, watching the folks in this casino would sure make you wonder. Finally, something that really threw me off balance--children--running up and down the hallways, in groups of 2, 3, 4 and more, aged around 2 (toddler) to 10+. There are signs posted that children are not to be left unattended. No matter. There are other sites to be seen and enjoyed by the entire family--save your money and visit downtown Chicago!
