OMG, here we go again. Deciding an extremely important matter right before the new board is elected. We’ve waited this long, why not a little while longer? This is absolutely ridiculous.
This is too important a decision not to put it to a vote of all residents. I believe only a small number of residents want a new restaurant. I am not one of them and have never made that a secret.
And, why in the world would any restaurant want to stay open 24/7 in a senior community where most of us are in bed by 10PM? Where are they going to get their customers? We do not have immediate access to the rest of the Vegas Valley and who the heck would want to come up here anyway when there are so many restaurants with gambling available all over Henderson/Las Vegas? We are not going to get tourists and residents in other communities are going to go close to home. We have places to gamble in our grocery stores, some of our drug stores and restaurants in our shopping centers.
This whole thing is terribly flawed and I don’t think the majority of SCA residents want to spend their hard earned and saved funds on something they will never use.
If they want to allow smoking, it would be illegal if the smoking area was not completely enclosed. It would also need it’s own entrance from the outside so that smoke does not drift into the Gallery and the rest of Anthem Center. And what about security in Anthem Center? I, for one, do not want outsiders roaming our facility at all hours of the day and night.
And as to Clubs having to use this restaurant for catering, that is absurd. We have too many ethnic clubs for them to obtain catering to their tastes.
Let’s talk about Buckman’s. It is a beautiful restaurant, good food, same gorgeous view as Anthem Center and I, personally, have always been happy with their catering. As an officer of the Entertainment Club, I object being told where we go for our catering services.
