    My wife and I came back June 2. The casino is open and they are still working on it. I will say that we were there in March for St. Patty's day and there really haven't done much. I am a contractor and I told my wife if I worked like that I would be broke. We always say they work on CPT. Carribian People Time. So I will assume that when we return the begining of Sept there still will be a lot to finish. Enjoy everyone.

    In defense of "timing" a lot of the sluggishness on progress is due to waiting for supplies to be shipped in.

    Thumbs up

    Was there last 2 weeks in June. The casino and subway are still open. The casino is still being rebuilt but slots and tables still going strong. . The new non-smoking room was not open yet.
    The shopping area is going up. Frames and roofs are being built but did never see too many people working so it looks like a long time before completion. From the back of my CDM unit could watch the few people working.

    hopefully by the time we get there in november most of the work in the casino will be done...especially the nonsmoking section....not to pick on smokers its just that the casinos (all) are small and the smoke just seems to follow you wherever you go.....

    Alhambra Facelift

    Work continues at the Alhambra Casino. The parking lot is now larger and more easily accessed. They're also building an entrance portico on the side toward the highway. Not much to look at, but here's a photo anyway:

    Bon dia.

    dan thanks for the photo on your website.

    it's funny, in your writings there, you mention about the portico and area where high rollers can be dropped off from their limos.

    directly below that is an ad. for Lincolns. (lincoln mercury)
    hahahahaha
