Are casino buffets going extinct in Reno? Why only 2 have reopened - Reno Gazette-Journal

Image
Once a staple of Reno's dining scene, all but two of the city's casino buffets remain closed with no immediate plans to reopen despite the easing of COVID-19 pandemic-related restrictions.  The future is uncertain for what were once sprawling arrays of serve-yourself decadence: the Peppermill's Island Buffet, the Sparks Nugget's Rotisserie Buffet, the buffets at the Eldorado, Rail City and Boomtown — all still closed, the curtains drawn, the chairs stacked. None of the casino representatives the RGJ spoke to said explicitly that these buffets had shuttered for good, but they said nothing of concrete plans to reopen in the near future.  Only two of seven buffets in major Reno casinos have reopened since the pandemic shuttered all of them in spring 2020. Of those two — the Grand Buffet at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino, a

All-Inclusive Update: Overwater Bungalows - Luxury Travel Advisor

Image
Picture the Maldives or Tahiti and "overwater bungalows" are likely to come to mind. Over-the-top accommodations stretching out from the shore and standing above the water — about as picturesque and romantic as a hotel can be. In fact, overwater bungalows are among the most popular requests from clients, according to many of the travel advisors we speak to. The good news is that Americans don't need to jetset across the globe to lavish in these accommodations — they're popping up in the Caribbean, Mexico, Belize and beyond, all just a few hours from the States.  Here's an array of overwater accommodations, all found within North or Central America, and all belonging to all-inclusive hotels.  Perhaps some of the most popular overwater bungalows in the Caribbean belong to Sandals Resorts. Three properties — Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals South Coast in Jamaica and Sandals Grande St. Lucian in St. Lucia — all offer over-the-water accomm

Chicago jobs hiring near me: Hotel job fair at Swissotel on Wacker helps residents, businesses - WLS-TV

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago hotels are looking to hire a few good workers, from entry level to senior staff. And there is a real urgency to fill positions. A hiring event at the Swissotel Chicago on Wacker Drive got underway at 9 a.m. Wednesday, and some hotels participating were hiring on the spot. The job fair is being held to address a worker shortage. The effort is hosted by the Illinois Hotel and Lodging Association along with the Chicago Cook County Workforce Partnership's Hospitality and Tourism Sector Center. The COVID pandemic has punished the hotel industry with record-low occupancy rates and layoffs, but now tourism and conventions are starting to return to Chicago, with the auto show last week and Lollapalooza set for the end of July. But as demand increases, many hotels have struggled to quickly hire staff.

Portland restaurants frozen out of federal relief fund remain ‘frustrated’ with way grants were dispersed - OregonLive

Image
The night Reel M Inn owner Carey Bolton learned her Southeast Portland bar had been approved for a federal grant through the Small Business Administration's Restaurant Revitalization Fund, she and partner Alex Briggs went online to buy new supplies. "That was a life-changing day for us," Bolton said of receiving the approval on May 20. "As soon as I heard, I called Alex in tears and said, 'We're going to be OK.'" And then she waited. Bolton had been instructed to wait three to seven business days for the funds. But by Memorial Day, they still hadn't processed. Bolton called the Small Business Administration daily. She was told to stay patient, the funds were coming. Two weeks later, Bolton learned that Reel M Inn was one of several thousand restaurants and bars across the country owned by women, veterans and people of color that had their grants revoked. As Bolton would discover, a pair of lawsuits backed by conservative groups in Tennessee and T
