Treasure Island Gets New Owner

Phil Ruffin has purchased Treasure Island, and preliminary reports indicate that the new owner will look to make the property a mid-tier resort. That's music to my ears. The strip could use some mid-tier choices for a change.

Ruffin was formerly the owner of the New Frontier. And while it's true that Ruffin was intent on bringing jazz to the strip. Maybe it would be more successful to rebrand the Treasure Island as the new, New Frontier. Dare to dream.

Update: Here's a great interview from the Los Angeles Times.
