I'd give a 2 for the things I attended, but heard fairly good things from the older people in the group (ages = 70s). DJ was OK... but seemed to be a bit too much into his mixing to where he would lose people who were dancing. Silent party was actually surprisingly fun / silly. Bartenders at Olive and Twist were excellent! So was Robert at R Bar. Missed Quest gameshow... unfortunately. Our bad, but wished there were more options. Worst thing was the "friendly feud". We were excited to participated, so got there early with a good seat. Signed up, and got a red raffle ticket. Teams were called randomly and it was fun. We thought they'd go through all teams, then have a playoff. Not so... They called maybe 8 teams and were DONE after 30 minutes. So crazy... they had a packed room, and lost 60% of the room. :(

Quite good. Would give a 5, but - 1 for cleanliness. See above.

How is it that they do this every week??? Totally disorganized, no one in Studio B to answer questions. We had a 9:00 a.m. time, and sat there for over an hour. Noticed it said "already called" on the screens so finally just left on our own. Painful.
