A few quick sound-bites:

A Gaming Today story on the upgrades at the Golden Nugget details the recent changes. I've seen some of this stuff and it is pretty nice. They did a good job down there.

MGM Mirage's sale of their Primm, NV assets to Herbst Gaming is complete.

Lastly, it looks like the NBA All Star Weekend was a bust from a gaming perspective. Thankfully, baccarat action from Chinese New Year saved the day.

Hunter, are they still going to build a new hotel tower at the Nugget? The standard rooms are nice enough at the Nugget but they are fairly small, particularly from the standard of the newer Strip places. I was antipating a new tower down there featuring Strip-like rooms, but haven't heard much about the tower recently.

The tower is still happening - it is supposed to break ground before the Summer... Landry's is going all-in with the Nugget.

Checking room rates, things seem to be holding up - a good sign for them.
