In short another set of Video Lottery Machines are sent out to pasture from the uptown area so this is indeed a good thing!
While putting this together I decided to ask this question of a few people in the street.
What do you think of another restaurant//bar closing and in doing so loosing a few more VLTs in the uptown area?
I was quite pleased with the comments from those who were asked this question.
The majority of those asked said-
#1/ The more of those machines removed the better so I can go back to stopping for a beer or a quick meal without it costing me a couple of hundred dollars and a nervous breakdown.
#2/ NOT having to worry and watch addicted people destroying their lives while trying to enjoy a meal with their families or friends.
#3/ I refuse to go to these places and spend a fair amount of money just to see someone going through a personal hell.
How in this world could I possibly enjoy myself If I'm watching someone else on the verge of going insane from across the room?
If I want to see that I'll just sit outside on my step.
#4/ What ever happened to the service that got these places started in the first place?
