    PHOF in Las Vegas has been REOPENED for 4 days now. Friday was $387. Saturday was almost busy with $810. Sunday was $523. MONDAY was the worst one day total since we opened, $171. We dipped under 200 once the first week we opened in 2006.

    Trying hard not to panic. The main factor at work here is the lingering effects of the MEXICAN BEER VIRUS. Many of our older customers remain hunkered in the bunker. Also the road out front has been reduced to 2 lanes with limited left turns Eastbound which slows traffic. This will continue for several more weeks and was not a surprise. Another BIG factor was protests in the streets resulting in a gas station in the 900 block of Tropicana being looted and burned.

    All our personnel are safe and warm (110 on Saturday). We are doing the same thing we were doing during the TOTAL SHUTDOWN, fine tuning the games on the floor, while getting new machines out of storage and working them thru for the opening on the Strip. Having big fun playing with our new RODENT CONTROL OFFICER, Porange Cat.

    Spent a part of the afternoon yesterday on the building site. Grading is underway. By the end of the week they should be placing forms to pour the foundation. The last of the iron fencing that was installed in the 70's was ripped down by a backhoe.

    Thanks for having a great site. Will turn around to the positive I’m sure.

    Did not know you were on Pinside, Tim! Just commenting to show support. Stay safe and I hope to visit the new location one day.

    Hold tight Tim. No one is traveling yet. I think come 4th July things might start to get better.
    Looking forward to the New Museum.

    Is there something we can do to help?

    Good news! Good progress! Love it when a plan comes together!

    I know of several people including myself and their families that will be visiting this summer. Things are just starting to get back to normal, hang in. Hopefully you applied for and received the PPP SBA funds.

    Maybe a way to buy Giftcards that are good for a longer timeframe than normal?

    I have a relative who is local to you guys who has a service that allows people to buy drinks, food and tabs for others over social media...perhaps you could look into a similar thing to allow people from OOS to buy their Vegas Friends some Pinball?

    Along with gift cards, other merchandise like T-shirts, etc.
