A little bit of Vegas makes its way to Connecticut this weekend. The new MGM Grand at Foxwoods opens on Saturday 5/17/08. Gamblers rejoice!

I'm pretty excited to see what the MGM will be like. I've been to Foxwoods maybe 3 times and Mohegan Sun once. They were ok. Here are the details on the new MGM:

Our 50,000-square-foot casino floor features over 1,400 slot machines as well as 53 table games, including blackjack, craps, roulette, Spanish 21 and 3-card poker.

One of the nightclubs there, Shrine, is owned by Ed Kane a local restaurant & bar owner. They've been advertising heavily in the Improper Bostonian and such. Here's a little on Ed:

Under the Eat Well Inc. umbrella, Kane went on to open the restaurants Tosca and Stars, and FireKing Baking Co. in Hingham; the seasonal Quincy nightclub WaterWorks, which will soon reopen as the Marina Bay Beach Club; and nightclubs Estate and Suite in Boston.
