Cal Neva to launch Circle Bar Ultra Lounge Saturday

Just weeks after gaming operations were temporarily suspended at the historic Cal Neva resort, activity will jumpstart in the casino with the launch of the new Circle Bar Ultra Lounge Saturday, April 24. The venue once frequented by Hollywood elite including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. will serve as the backdrop for a night of music, dancing, give-aways, drink specials and delicious appetizers. The doors to the casinoandamp;#8217;s Circle Bar will open at 9:30 p.m. Guests will have numerous photo opportunities with celebrity hosts including models Kristen Gorano and Crystal Lee, and the chance to participate in Guitar Hero and dance contests as well as a Lakeview Suite give-away at the end of the night. DJ Boogie from local radio station Wild 102.9 will spin the latest Rock, Randamp;B, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Techno music throughout the event. The Circle Bar Ultra Lounge event corresponds with Snowball Rally 2010, an annual vintage sports car rally in Sacramento, and the 2010 Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival in nearby Squaw Valley. Discounts and drink specials will be available for guests who also registered these events, as well as UNR and Sierra Nevada College students. This Saturdayandamp;#8217;s Circle Bar Ultra Lounge is expected to kick-off a series of casino events as property owner Canyon Capital Realty Advisors continues the process of identifying a new gaming tenant for the resort. Canyon has already been in discussion with several gaming-license holders who have expressed interest in becoming Cal Nevaandamp;#8217;s new casino operator, and is expecting to restart gaming operations by the end of the year.andamp;#8212; Submitted to the Sun via e-mail to
