The Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs is holding its grand opening today, and South Shore business are seeking ways to compete against and possibly partner with the new casino.
On Tuesday morning, workers were putting in the last few slot machines, stocking Red Hawk key chains in the gift shop and making other last-minute preparations for the casino's opening tonight at 7. Red Hawk Casino is off Highway 50 outside of Placerville, about 60 miles from the South Shore.
Carol Chaplin, Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority executive director, said she met with Red Hawk Casino representatives, and they offered to refer business to Lake Tahoe. "I don't know how it will work, but there's nothing to lose," Chaplin said. "Right now we're talking to properties to see if they want to test the waters."
