Foxwoods

I couldn't believe it when I read it in the paper this morning, but the Connecticut-based giant casino/hotel/entertainment complex known as Foxwoods is expanding [3]. This on top of this fall's $300 million on a new casino, a Hard Rock Cafe, a shop, and two golf courses that should open in a few months.

Citing competition from the Mohegan Sun and possible gambling-related growth in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Foxwoods' $700 million, 2 million-square-foot expansion will include a 825-room hotel, a new casino, a 5,000-seat concert theater, six nightclubs and restaurants, and a 21,000-square-foot luxury spa.

As the virally infectious jingle says, "Meet me at Foxwoods"--indeed.
