GSR is down on cigars and poker

My wife, friends and I have been going to GSR for several years. It was our favorite casino until the other day. My friend and I frequented the Sports bar for hours, enjoying cigars, playing video poker and watching all the sports. Last week we were informed that cigars are no longer allowed in the sports bar. We did some checking with several employees and they told us the same story. Alex Meruelo (Meruelo Group), the new owner, was in the sports bar having a cigar when another cigar smoker sat near him. Apparently, he did not like the cigar the other patron was smoking so he has banned cigars in the sports bar, except for him. Cigarettes are still permitted. Apparently being of Cuban descent has made him an expert on cigars. Very childish! Oh and their poker does NOT pay 9/6 like Peppermill's does. And, Peppermill allows cigars in the sports bar.
