The Bike Event Center Receives an Upgrade
The Bicycle Casino has recently opened their new Event Center where they will host their various tournament series that they run through the year. I don't know how many of you play at the Bike in Los Angeles, but I have mixed feelings about this upgrade.
On the one hand, the new center will allow for larger tournaments to be played without having to spread the players throughout the casino. I like this. From the pics I have seen of the center, it has a nice pristine look to it.
On the other hand, I worry that the casino will turn corporate now. One thing I used to love about playing at the Bike is that the tournaments were well run and almost had a family atmosphere to them. While the staff may be the same, I hope that the casino doesn't take the hard line and run the tournament area too strict. That would be a shame.
However, I still plan to make a trip out there in the next year to try it out. The event center looks great and should be a fine time. I just wish that they would have updated the chair. The chairs are the same as they were BEFORE the upgrade. New building, same hard ass chair.
