Boston Harbor again
For a long time in New England, there have always been basically three location options for full casino experiences – head to Connecticut for a night or weekend in Foxwoods or Mohegan, check out Twin River Casino in Rhode Island, or keep in northern New England and hang out at Oxford Casino, Maine’s favorite.
Outside of these locations, there was no real middle ground for New Englanders who wanted to try their luck with Lady Luck. It wasn’t until June 2019 when the middle ground was created with the opening of Encore Boston Harbor in Everett, Massachusetts.
Encore comes with multiple options inside – over 600 luxurious rooms for a night or weekend getaway, slot machines and table games for those trying to grow their bank accounts, and multiple gambling options. restoration. And a place to dance the night away with some of the best special guest DJs on the planet.
As the tagline on the official Memoire website says, “It’s more than just a memory, it’s a memory.” And with the options inside Memory, the tagline holds true. In fact, not even two weeks ago, New England native and Las Vegas resident DJ Pauly D returned home to play a set at Memoire.
Memory nightclub fined
Sadly, it emerged a few days ago that Memoir also had some bad memories, with a hefty $25,000 fine from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission and a bigger presence from the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission. According to the Boston Herald, between the October 2021 timeline and this June, there have been five separate documented incidents of alcohol abuse, one incident occurring at the bar and the other during bottle service.
The biggest changes coming to Memoire are for patrons taking advantage of their bottle service, which allows patrons to reserve a table and have a dedicated server serve their drinks for the night. Where previously bottles were left at customers’ tables unattended, dedicated servers will now bring bottles removed from the table whenever they are not present.
By enforcing this, customers will not be free to pour their own drinks or, as has happened in some cases, take drinks directly from the bottle itself (or have drinks poured from a waiter directly in the mouth of a customer), which reduces overconsumption. and allows servers to track exactly how much alcohol they have served to those particular customers.
More changes will happen behind the scenes, according to the Herald, with more staff training and nightclub managers reinforcing rule changes in pre-shift meetings. Essentially, as a customer, other than not being able to pour your own drink or drink from a bottle, you won’t even know the difference.
