BUSINESS: Stir shaking things up the casino

Niagara Gazette — STIR, the new high-energy feature bar and lounge at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel, opened for business last week.

STIR is located in the southwest corner of Seneca Niagara’s completely renovated main gaming floor and features a collection of sights, sounds and tastes that will thrill the senses. A massive 20-by-40-foot high-definition video wall with open views from across the gaming floor creates a focal point of activity and excitement. Live performances, stunning visual effects and a large dance floor set the atmosphere. Guests can enjoy signature cocktails served by bevertainers. A large circular bar with lounge seats and 21 tabletop video gaming units helps create an entertainment hub within the world-class resort.

“No visit to Seneca Niagara will ever be the same,” said Cathy Walker, president and CEO, Seneca Gaming Corporation, standing amidst the festivities. “STIR is a one-of-a-kind experience.”

The opening of STIR marks the completion of a comprehensive $26 million renovation of Seneca Niagara’s main gaming floor. In December, Seneca Gaming Corp. unveiled the reinvented space, which includes dazzling new slot displays and contemporary table game layouts and canopies, each complemented by plush new furniture and greatly enhanced lighting, a brand-new Keno Bar adjacent to the entrance to Thunder Falls Buffet, a larger, brighter Players Club Booth, a new gaming layout with wider, more open walkways, new, richly-colored carpeting, fresh wall coverings and a brand new air quality system. The result is a brighter, more open and more airy feel. The corporation also unveiled The Mezz, its newly-designed balcony area overlooking the main gaming floor, which is open to guests 18 and older.

  • SUN LIFE Farms 1 040614.jpg NIAGARA COUNTY: Effort to get fresh food to the needy is energized by new venture.

    Tom Tower thinks it's a crime to throw away good food. The gentleman farmer from Youngstown is noted for his passion for agricultural craftsmanship, so seeing his carefully grown produce lying wasted in the field causes him great distress. He was one of the first farmers in the region to bring his apples by the truckload to the Western New York Food Bank. It was pure logic and generosity that prompted him to do so, but when the food bank received some state money to buy fresh produce, Tower and Justin Guerin, food bank director, worked out a deal. One month would be a donation, the next month, the bank would pay a fair price for the apples.
