We go there every time we vacation in Ct (which is often). It's soooo good and the view of the marina while you eat is pretty great.On a more positive note for those going to the Mohegan Sun for the Tournament, I stumbled upon an MSN Lifestyles article on the Best Sandwiches in each state and the Connecticut winner is right down the shore in Noank at Abbott's Lobster in the Rough and it's call OMG Lobster Roll...
IMO, anyone over 70 is "at risk", whether they want to or not.The wife and I got tickets. Came up from VA. We’re watching things closely, so really appreciate any info y’all have. At this point we’re planning to go and just be careful. But we are in an “at risk” group (over 70, but in good health), so don’t want to make any unnecessary chances.
I'm a fan and desperately want to go. I also am generally not an alarmist, but do have some education and have been watching the medical media. As of right now (Fri pm) I don't know what I will do.IMO, anyone over 70 is "at risk", whether they want to or not.
All good considerations. After much thought, my wife and I decided to go. We’ll by careful. Probably won’t go to as many games as we normally would. Won’t hang out at the casino much. Maybe go to this Ford’s place I hear folks talking about. But, so far, no identified cases in CT (I’m sure there will be many) and we really, really want to see the Huskies live (haven’t done so in 2 years. And yes... we’ll wash our hands frequently.I'm a fan and desperately want to go. I also am generally not an alarmist, but do have some education and have been watching the medical media.

Hard for all us to sort this out & the vested interests are tailoring their reporting on this so as to confuse us all, whether or not we have expertise. The economics of this are an unfolding mega-disaster and many have an interest in playing Larry Vaughn's role as the protective mayor of Amity in Jaws trying to safeguard his community's economic well-being in the face of crisis.
But more and more of the not politically affiliated medical community are coming out against discretionary public gathering - especially large. More today on prime CNN, MSNBC air. Which is totally politically INCORRECT because it crushes the economy if you warn people not to even go to movies.
Several of the non-politically driven medical/public health officials have gone on air to explain what "elevated risk" means, and it's not just us seniors. Actually as they laid out THEIR definition it counts over half of the total US population going far beyond age alone to include anyone with a laundry list of underlying conditions or increased vulnerabilities.
OK so I'm really not trying to be Kassandra here and hope to God this is way over-blown, but in all honesty I don't know and lots of politically independent smart people are urging caution including simple public outings like movies. Screws me as I want to go the the last PC Friars home game tomorrow too.
I don't know, I just don't know.
Agree. Wife and I went to Mohegan Sun. So far we’re both ok, but wish we hadn’t gone. In less than a week we’ve gone from don’t worry to be careful to you can’t go. Not that much has changed in a week - other than the protective efforts becoming dramatically stronger. Stay safe out there all you fellow B’yarders.OK well this is now put to bed - no NCAAs, NBA, restricted public gatherings, reduced flights, National Guard in NY and a further list of things most of us thought we'd never see waiting in the wings.
Leader of Germany, Angela Merkel, is quoted fearing that up to 70% of Germany could get the Cvirus. With a 3% death rate that would be tragic.
I think this teaches us to always believe public health officials over politicians when they update us on TV.
I enjoy the Conference Tournament at Mohegan Sun going to the Semis Sunday & Monday Championship match-ups and have been looking forward to this weekend.
But, now the Cvirus concerns may impact my behavior.
I live in Pawtucket and, all of the sudden, we have Cvirus cases. The local CVS/Walmarts were out of hand sanitizer/others BEFORE the announcement. This morning I stopped at CVS and now people are calling for mask/sanitizer/other deliveries to meet them. The News Media are talking about avoiding public gatherings and - all at once - normal people at the Y/restaurants/grocery stores are questioning things like congregating in public.
So for me I'm still excited to go. But the world here is changing literally day-by-day. If things develop unexpectedly I think it possible attendance will be affected, or worse.
Lots of people at Mohegan and the restaurants, not all healthy on good days.
Don't like to see the world this way but I think both Mohegan & the 1st two NCAA Rounds at Storrs will be affected - at least for me as I'm taking it day-by-day.
