The busy New Year's holiday weekend is likely to come and go before a Rio casino hotel tower in Las Vegas fully recovers from a power outage that prompted a 900-room evacuation, officials said Friday.

Spokesman Richard Broome of the Rio's parent company, Caesars Entertainment, said the company is testing to see whether rooms on the lowest 20 floors can be occupied Friday. That could mean about 500 rooms would reopen in time for the holiday, when hotel rooms are scarce.

Broome said about 400 rooms on the upper floors of the Masquerade Tower will likely be unoccupied for several more days.

MBA bean counters. Penny wise, pound foolish. Safety last.

An overflowing sink shorted a fuse and caused a small fire in a service elevator Wednesday.

A backup generator compromised by water from fire sprinklers gave out Thursday morning.

I couldn't find any meaty accusations of corporate malfeasance. Just, you know, shit happens.
