Burgers at GEE BEES

GEE BEES

8560 Las Vegas Blvd. S.

• Phone: 263-2604

It stands alone across from the many time shares and long-staying resorts that line Las Vegas Blvd South.

You won’t find better service, football promotions or meal choices for a restaurant/bar than here at Gee Bees.

There’s even one of those cool shuffleboard games, though the wood is extremely slick. The burger, bun and fries were superb and fell just short of a perfect experience.

The one fault was that this particular burger was a bit dry. We love juicy burgers and are very hesitant to give out 30’s so we’re always looking for something to complain about.

No worries, though. We’re coming back for that 30!

Gaming revenue in Macau casinos fell 34.5 percent during July, compared to the same month a year ago. The total for the month was $2.3 million. It was the 14th consecutive month of year-to-year declines.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City’s revenue in its first 11 months has fallen short of projections, but still outpaced its predecessor. The Hard Rock took in $70 million in gambling revenue in its first 11 months through June 30.

The total number of Macau gaming and junket jobs shrank by about 800 during the second quarter of 2015. It’s another example of the impact resulting from the absence of high rolling gamblers who have been avoiding the Macau casinos.

The Arizona Department of Gaming says contributions to the state from tribal gambling revenue will be about $25.8 million for the quarter that ended on June 30. That’s about 4.5 percent more than the same quarter in 2014.

The Houston Astros look to continue their strong second-half surge when they visit in-state rival Texas. The Astros and Lance McCullers (-129) are favored over Colby Lewis and the Rangers. The total is 9.
