First, please try Poco Loco's on Ottawa Street. Great burrito's and great folks. Great corner location with colorful picnic tables out the side. Very cool two level building as well.

I am torn about the Casino. I agree with another commentor above. I used to frequent Niagara Falls a lot when I got my license. There was so much to do. I go to the Casino from time to time now but in general I don't like them. I like the shows more than anything. The ding ding ding really get's to you. I'd rather see Flamborough Downs thrive then for us to jeopardize losing it with a downtown Casino.

What about the Stelco tower? That steel/glass is looking a bit worn. It could use a 'Casino-like' facelift. I don't dislike your Connaught idea at all. Just thinking if we could clean up an ugly building while still putting the Casino downtown if we have to have it, it might make it easier to justify bringing the RC back in all it's hotel glory.

Although I'd rather not have a Casino on some principal levels, can anyone really say that put right downtown, revitalization wouldn't suddenly explode. I guess the question would be, would it be a stadium in the Harbor type fix. Not really what's ideal for the location but it would give us the quick influx of money that doesn't seem to be coming/available from anywhere else anytime soon.

I'd rather downtown be a mom and pop haven, but perhaps that's just me.
