MGM is launching their food truck Fridays. It’s launching the same weekend of the Kentucky derby so they’re calling it Derby de Mayo weekend!  It all kicks off at 11 AM Friday, May 3 with a performance by cover band feel good drift. There will be lawn games and food The trucks. The outdoor beer garden will be open for the first time this season outside of Tap. On May 4 at 4:30the grounds of Howard Street will transform into an outdoor viewing party for the Kentucky Derby!  Race will be broadcast live on a 330 square-foot marquis screen.

Food truck Fridays will take place from 11 AM to 2:30 PM and will include a lot of fun looking trucks. I was surprised to see how big the list for May 3 was.  Looks like 11 food trucks will be on site including a Wahlburgers from Boston!  Say cheese from Wocster and Kona ice from Stamford Connecticut. Among many others. This really does sound delicious.

The gaming numbers were released on April 16 and it look like March was a very strong bond for MGM Springfield. They reported $25.7 million in gross gaming revenue which is up in 19% from February. The number is still below the pre-opening projections of $34.8 million a month. However with warmer weather approaching it’s certainly a step in the right direction. This combined with their aggressive promotional schedule and live music plan should bring in a good amount of new visitors. It should be reported that plain Ridge Park Casino had a $16 million month in March which is better compared to their 12.6 million in February. So we had some job coach at MGM Springfield the last couple of weeks we had five jobs cut last week in facilities and engineering departments.  Two more positions were eliminated this week. MGM Resorts International chairman and CEO Jim Murren announced Thursday that 250 jobs were eliminated across the company and that he expects another round of cutbacks in another few weeks.

You may remember that MGM called for $100 million of cuts and US payroll over the next two years.
