    Probably the same black plastic interior wall Andrea saw blocking present renovation was still up on Wednesday. I will think that is what brought me such good luck at the roulette table.

    Thumbs up

    End of June they were still working inside the Casino. Outside the shopping area had shops/dinning places open at about half of the areas. Really looking good but since your Divi and if Divi AI may not be interested in the dinning areas. The Market there also has a good selection of wine/beer.

    Update on Alhambra casino area?

    I was wondering if anyone could give an update on the Alhambra Casino area? We are headed there in May and I was curious if all of the construction is complete and what is there now?

    New shops, restaurants, some fast food, and a new mini-market.

    We really enjoyed Fusion (wine bar) and spent a few evening there for after dinner wine/champagne. We tried Ginger for dinner one night and although the food was fresh and cooked well, it lacked the sort of flavor one would expect from an Asian restaurant - no spice/heat whatsoever and very bland. Probably won't go back unless I hear they've stepped it up a notch or two.

    The mini-market, although small, was stocked well with almost everything you would need/want - from wine to Corn Flakes to take-out roasted chicken. Nice addition.

    There are no longer the stores that used to be there and I was expecting them to come back and some even said they would be back. I am disappointed in the stores there.

    I agree with Amy, very nice area with nice little stores and restaurants. Also, the Dunkin Donut/Baskin Robins is back. They are still working on the complex and I don't know what stores didn't come back but I think it's a very nice addition to the area.
