Put this in NHB because it gets more traffic. Looks like I'll be able to quench my thirst of live hold'em action sooner rather than later. Good news I suppose.

Say what you want about Gilbert' ownership skills but he is one slick businessman. The temporary casino is sheer genius. This may allow him to recoup some of his money that was lost when the Cavs franchise value went to shit.

LOL ... I've seen the hookers at some of the non-marquee Vegas casinos.

Can only imagine what the Cleveland temporary casino hookers would look like. :hic:

I like the way its going to look. They're saying an average of 13,000 people a day. Really good news for e 4th and other nearby business. I can see a lot of people coming in from the suburbs, grabbing dinner downtown then hitting the casino.

Looking forward to playing some craps before a tribe game.

Seeing crap during the Tribe game and playing craps after, sounds like a plan.

I wonder if temporary casino hookers are only temporarily hookers...

...or are they "temp" hookers instead of "full-time" hookers?

Good luck to you with that.

I should have put 2+2 together when JB mentioned you haunted the streets of Lakewood.

I'm thinking the Higbee building location should be considered as permanent home, instead of building something new. Let that area live and breath a little more, grow from there.

Will visit A- to play some craps- lessons available, here is my method:

Step 1: ::doh::
Step 2: :pb:
Step 3: :hide:

and B- To see that building again from the inside. The old interlocking wooden escalators are one of my oldest downtown memories. Hope there are some nuggets of old Cleveland left in there.
