Not for people flying in the opening Saturday it didn't.


What was the issue here?

(I red-eyed in over Friday night and showed up at the Hotel before the first tournaments I cared about started (noon), but I was certainly concerned about possible shuttle delays)

More variety would be nice.

The main negative for me was not having an end of the day bar lounging spot like we had in the Host. If they would open the Foggy Goggle as the casual hang out, that would be awesome!

From the food angle, I will have to bring something with me to cover those evenings when my gaming schedule messes with my ability to get a dinner in or a late night bite. I got caught a couple of times and was forced to go to bed hungry.

I really did like the upgraded breakfast buffet as that is where I pack it in for the day. And yes I paid more for the dinners at Timbers, but I knew that going in.

Everything else was a positive. Including a shorter drive (6.5 hrs vs 9.5 hrs).

I would only do the full nine days at the Host every third year or so, but I did nine this year and will do it again next year.

+1

It was open when I was over there for the 7 Wonders Duel tournament on Sunday night. I think we could definitely give them enough business to keep it open every night.

The bar by Timbers was open into the night, I thought. I was there around 11pm and they had live music a few times. It wasn't as open a spot like the Host to people watch...it was secluded and dark. But you could chill there and drink.

Oddly enough, locals were in there a few times when I was there. The prices were high and seemed like a hike for regulars...my local joint is three blocks away with $2 drafts.

But maybe that is what is available out there. Or maybe there was local housing closer than I thought.

At any rate, you could get late night drinks if you wanted.
