This wouldn't surprise me. I mean the casino isn't much other than some signs and themed game tables. And who wants to go to the 5 o clock bar inside the casino when there is a massive margaritaville 20 feet away with bars that overlook the strip. I would pick the actual margaritaville every time. The only thing I will miss is 5$ blackjack all day everyday and free bottled landsharks.

I never gambled in the Margaritaville casino, I've already given far too much of my money to Buffett over the years. I only went to the 5 O'clock Somewhere bar once and the service sucked so I never went back.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

It's that whole model of Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock Cafe, etc. $12 themed hamburgers.
You only have two options - havin' fun or freakin' out...
