Nothing is stranger than luck

Nothing is stranger than luck

Splitting Eights

Splitting Eights

Spending Some Time in Black Hawk Labor Day has passed and that is beginning of the golden aspen trees and yellowing of our hills and mountains. What a great time to drive into the majestic mountains and I love the drive up Clear Creek Canyon on Highway 119 into Black Hawk. Roll down the car […]

Let the games begin

Life is a game of inches and even seconds. Watching the Olympics, it is such an inspiration to see young men and women who have trained so hard since childhood to participate in these world games.

THE LAST HAND – Opera season brings song and cheer to mountains

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 19, and dads are always up for some barbecue, brats, beer and burgers, surrounded by family members. We’re also up for casino buffets, poker, blackjack and a family expedition. Kind of depends upon the grandkids and what the family has planned.

THE LAST HAND – Fine dining at Isle’s Farraddays Restaurant

Not everyone knows or realizes just how good the dining is in Central City and Black Hawk. In cuisine ranging in taste from gourmet hotdogs to rack of lamb, patrons can find the best dining in Colorado in our Colorado casinos.
