Boyd Gaming has turned over the Barbary Coast keys to Harrah’s. In loving memory of Barbary Coast, we won’t speak the horrible new name of the hotel and casino in this post. However, we will provide this link to the new Web site, which clears up a few questions lingering since the ownership change was announced:
- Big Elvis is still performing in the lounge
- The Victorian Room is still called The Victorian Room
- Michael’s will be replaced by a new steakhouse
- The casino will have its own slot club rather than joining Total Rewards
We’re still hoping for some decent video poker paytables, fair blackjack rules and low-limit pai gow poker when the renamed casino opens in a couple days and will pass along reports in upcoming podcasts.
Only one other link this week: Our friend Mike E put together a comprehensive report on the hotel-within-a-hotel concept a few days ago. So check it out and poke around Mike’s blog—La Dolce Life is a welcome addition to our blogroll.
