Against all odds the tribal-owned 7th Street Casino in downtown Kansas City, Kan., has opened for business.
Despite a pending lawsuit by the state challenging the casino’s legality, the doors to the three-story, 20,000-square-foot gambling parlor across the street from City Hall opened to the public at 10 p.m. Thursday.
Before that, a few hundred invited officials and dignitaries filled the former Masonic temple to see the renovated building and a tribal dedication conducted in traditional American Indian dress.
