Most prevalent of Landry's restaurants in this area are the Joe's Crab Shacks. The food is good, but they have some strange management habits.
They play music much too loudly, and the waiters and waitresses sit down at your table to take your order. They also have a ritual of cranking the music up even higher, and having their employees do a dance. Once, in the middle of a business lunch, we were interrupted by a vulgar hip-hop dance.
I did hold some hope of the internet guys kick starting a down town rejuvination. However I can not see a company doing the same, personally I believe downtown needs characters and entrepreneurs (sp?) to make it work.
I bet it was the single deck blackjack table that did 'em in...
You know, a casino just can't make any money on those. The table hold is what, at least 1% less than the rest of 'em? They should have made it 6:5 like everyone else. Or better yet, they should start paying you less than even money for hitting a snapper.
Yeah! They might still be around if they'd only have paid 4:5. Say, I wonder if I could be a casino manager?!!!
