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 wine fest 3 072014.jpg [Duplicate] Sip the Niagara Wine Trail's best in one location The Niagara Wine Trail reveals it's sweetness slowly, and only to those dedicated enough to spend the time. There are 27 wineries and to sample a taste of each requires much driving through the backroads of the Niagara region, and far too much sipping to make driving a logical possibility. That's what makes the trail's 6th annual Wine and Culinary event such a good idea. Wine lovers who've always wanted to explore the new and unusual offerings of the 14-year-old wine trail, can do so next weekend, all in one place.

    According to the latest research, “keto diets” or very low-carb diets are not more effective long-term than other diet methods. A wide range of diets work and I won’t debate the value of each and every diet or method out there, but the keys to a successful diet need to take the following into consideration:

When Tina Kowalski is out grocery shopping and she sees someone pick up a carton of organic milk, she sometimes walks over to thank them.

    Many individuals fall for words like “all natural,” “heart healthy” and pretty pictures of fruits and vegetables when shopping for groceries. These very misleading marketing ploys are partially responsible for the rising numbers of those diagnosed with heart disease and diabetes and people suffering from obesity even though they are eating foods that claim to benefit their health.
