I'm in another state but heard rumor that Eastside Cannery is closing down? Any truth to this rumor? News from the locals, please. Thanks.

Was at East Cannery earlier today. They are still open but it has the feel of a dying casino. As of Today, the deli at the sportsbook is closed as is the players club, making the line at the now combined players club/cashier even longer. They closed the buffet earlier this year, leaving only the coffee shop and steak house for food and the steakhouse is only open 4 days a week I believe.

It seems odd that Boyd appears to be letting this property die a slow death as they only purchased the 2 cannery properties a year and a half ago. Now it seems like they don't want them. They never put these properties on the Bconnected system.

The website's link for its steakhouse (and its deli) now points to the steakhouse (and deli) at Sam's Town.

Well maybe the steakhouse, Carve is closed now as well. I was there in the afternoon and Carve doesn't open until 5pm, so I did not notice. That would leave only the coffee shop. Pretty hard to keep people in the building if you close all the food outlets.

It used to be a bargain casino with good but heavily Latin music. It was awhile ago but it did feature coupons for Right/Wrong or Red/Black straddles that often let couples have a good shot a night's cheap entertainment without requiring any pretense of not knowing each other or gambling at different ends of the table. They were early users of Twitter but then it got excessive.

Wow, Their bingo room was half their clientele. They even had a bingo shuttle that would pick up anyone on the east side of town.

Boyd wrecked it. Probably because they were stingy with the free play.

How does that Black/Red coupon work?
