With the Graton Casino opening this week, readers are showing mixed opinions about whether they’ll patronize the gaming options and restaurants of the $820 million facility.
Here were some of the coments.
––
“More out of curiosity than anything else, and mostly for the restaurants.”
––
“I have never supported Indian casinos and will not start now.”
––
“They should build one south of town also.”
––
“Finally a nice casino resort closer than Cache Creek. Hopefully they also hold concerts.”
––
“Are you kidding? I would like to see all the casinos disappear in California.”
––
“Absolutely not! It should never have been built.”
––
“Why not as it saves 30 minutes of driving to River Rock. Pretty soon River Rock will be back to a nice hillside again.”
––
“I am not much of a gambler but welcome a new venue for famous music acts.”
––
“My water bill said we are having a critical water shortage. Won’t this new casino add to the water woes?”
––
“Would rather spend my hard earned money in local establishments that pay local taxes.”
––
“Instead of going to Reno, I will save a lot of time and money just going a few miles up the freeway. Now, if they can eventually bring in some top flight entertainment I will have no reason to go anywhere else.”
