ABSTRACT
The author offers a view on the upgrades for the Gold Spike casino, located in downtown Las Vegas in Nevada, following its acquisition by Siegel Group in a $21 million deal in 2008. He sees that the attitude of Stephen Crandall, co-owner of Siegel Group, toward the Gold Spike development project is admirable despite the national economic recession and decline in local gaming revenue, visitation and airport traffic. He commends the can-do spirit as well as the determination of Siegel Group to persist with their plans.
