    About time! I am so anxious to sit and inhale the fumes from Koval Lane and enjoy the sights of the upscale local population.:beer:

    I'm guessing that the dining part will incorporate the current restaurants in some fashion. I'm looking forward to checking it out.

    I’ll be seeing it about 4 times in December.
    ( breakfast around 5:30 am) Certainly a lot of local flavor at that time.

    Hopefully more local than upscale.

    I loved it when it was not the hot spot. It is one of my favorites. I really hope they don't screw it up with the improvements. Looking forward to hearing reports of the opening but don't change the ambiance even though they changed the numbers on the odds. Fun place to visit but tough to win at the machines.

    The beer garden itself is not a big deal to me (i.e. I probably won't use it), but I love Ellis Island for a visit once each trip, and will continue to gamble there. And it that brings more customers in, then that's great. It's an easy walk there from where I stay around the corner at Tuscany, if heading out towards the strip, or via the way home from the strip. Cheap and good honest unpretentious food, nice and cheap craft beer, reasonably loose slots (from my experience anyway), pretty attentive cocktail wait staff. The bottom line for me is that I want these off-strip places to continue to thrive, because they provide good low-roller options for low-rollers such as myself. Same as downtown (e.g. El Cortez), I want them all to do well there also, even though I only usually visit there for a gamble/meal once per trip. And Tuscany get's some gambling spend from me each trip also, as do some other off-strip locations. I say 'long live those off-strip venues' and long may they offer the alternatives that they do.

    Maybe they built it on a "pay as you go" basis. :blah:
