Riverside Updates from Matt Laughlin
"The renovation is complete and we are excited to be reopening Riverside Cinemas this Friday, June 26th! We have fully renovated all six theaters including new carpet, LED floor lighting, plus brand new motorized recliners, each complete with a personal swivel table. We have also installed new carpet throughout lobby and concession area, plus added LED lighting to our lobby crown molding. Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!" www.RiversideResort.com
As everyone probably knows, we reopened last Thursday, June 4, and although it’s only been one week, it seems like we’ve been open for months! It’s funny how your mind and body work sometimes. Muscle memory. But no matter how much planning and preparation you do, sometimes plans go a little sideways. Don’t get me wrong, we had a great reopening. We saw so many of our long time guests and friends, plus many new faces making us their first choice on a much needed vacation or getaway. But not everything went smooth. Physical distancing during queuing lines is complicated. Not having enough rooms available while we are renovating is difficult, and valet not being open was more challenging than I thought (so we received permission to reopen it).
But I really need to say this again – thank you for all your continued support. My grandfather and I appreciate everything and had a great time saying hello to so many of you on the casino floor this past week.
Now, how about the new BBQ on the River restaurant! Our Food & Beverage Director, Herve Allain, and his team did an amazing job thinking of BBQ at the last minute. Not having a buffet was discouraging, but Herve’s idea let us bring back more of our Riverside Team so I am proud of him for that, as well. Plus, my family and I eat there regularly now! I personally suggest the samplers, they have a little bit of everything and even enough to take home.
Our South Tower guest room and hallway renovation is looking amazing! We are currently applying our finishing touches on two floors (we need to finish decorating) and will have both floors released to our guests to enjoy next weekend! I have updated pictures posted for you. Keep in mind, we still have small details to finish so not necessarily final product, yet.
Looking forward to seeing everyone here in Laughlin this summer."
