Brew Brothers up and brewing at full speed at Scioto Downs Racino

article 2

Brew Brothers is up and brewing at full speed.

The restaurant-brewery inside the Scioto Downs Racino opened in late October, but as is the case with many new breweries, it took a little more time to build up its stock of beer.

But just don’t call it a brewpub.

“This is a dinner house,” Gregg Carano told a crowd at the restaurant’s grand opening event. “My dad used to say, ‘We can’t afford Frank Sinatra, so our food has to be our Frank Sinatra.’ ”

Carano is senior vice president of food and beverage for Reno, Nevada-based Eldorado Resorts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERI), which owns the racino. His father, Don Carano, started the gaming company in 1973. Gregg is one of four Carano siblings, aka “the brew brothers,” including Eldorado CEO Gary Carano, who also attended the opening.

“We’ve opened a number of restaurants in 40 years,” said Gregg Carano, who has moved to Columbus. “Not all of them have opened as smoothly as this one.”

While the menu has plenty of brewpub-type fare like burgers and pizzas, it also serves up a one-pound ribeye steak, shrimp and scallops and baby back ribs.

Brewmaster Ryan Torres is overseeing a system with a 1,000-barrel annual production capacity. The restaurant tapped six different beers for the grand opening, including a Kolsch, a Scotch ale and a stout.

The Scioto Downs’ Brew Brothers in the second in Eldorado portfolio. The first opened 20 years ago in its Reno casino.

The Carano family doesn’t do just beer. Gregg Carano also noted the family has been in the wine business since 1986 with the Ferrari-Carano brand.

Eldorado Resorts completes acquisition of Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Reno

Company Release – 11/24/2015 9:00 AM ET

RENO, Nev.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Eldorado Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERI) (“Eldorado,” “ERI,” or “the Company”) announced today that it completed the previously announced purchase of MGM Resorts International’s (NYSE: MGM) 50 percent interest in the Silver Legacy Resort Casino Reno, as well as the assets of Circus Circus Reno, for total consideration of $72.5 million cash plus a working capital adjustment. In addition, ERI repaid the entire outstanding balance of the Silver Legacy credit facility, which amounted to approximately $52.6 million on a net debt basis. The transaction was financed with cash on hand, cash from the escrow account established at the time of the Company’s July financings and borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility. As a result, Eldorado has withdrawn its registration statement relating to a proposed common stock offering, the proceeds of which were intended to pay a portion of the purchase price for the Circus Circus Reno and 50% interest in the Silver Legacy joint venture.

“The addition of Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Reno to our operations is consistent with our strategy to enhance shareholder value by pursuing strategically and economically attractive transactions,” said Gary Carano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado. “We are very excited to welcome the Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Reno employees to the Eldorado family at a time when the Reno gaming market and the northern Nevada economy is prospering. Our experience integrating the MTR operations and the talent of our operating teams across Reno’s three leading downtown casino resorts will serve us well as we welcome Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Reno into our operating base.”

Tom Reeg, President of Eldorado, added, “The transaction is immediately accretive to our free cash flow and strengthens our position in the Reno market where gross gaming revenues are up more than 3.5% year-over-year through September. We expect to realize significant cost and revenue synergies with the tri-properties now under common ownership. After careful review of our financing options, we chose to fund the final piece of the transaction with existing revolver capacity, in lieu of an equity offering. Based on the continued strength of our operations, we expect that we will reach our pro forma leverage target of less than five times EBITDA in the first half of 2016.”

The transaction increases Eldorado’s property portfolio to seven wholly-owned and operated facilities in five markets with a total of approximately 10,230 slot machines and VLTs, approximately 300 table games, approximately 4,850 hotel rooms, approximately 35 dining, bar and entertainment options, three pari-mutuel racing facilities and approximately 8,000 team members.

The Silver Legacy is a Nevada mining themed hotel-casino and entertainment complex which features an approximately 89,200-square foot gaming floor with 1,302 slot machines, 63 table games, 1,711 hotel rooms, including 141 player suites, eight penthouse suites and seven hospitality suites, a 50,000 square foot convention center, a race and sports book, two fine dining restaurants, a buffet, food court and four casual dining restaurants. Circus Circus Reno is an iconic circus-themed hotel-casino and entertainment complex which features an approximately 56,000-square foot gaming floor with 908 slot machines, 33 table games, 1,571 hotel rooms, including 67 mini suites, four executive suites and four VIP suites, a sportsbook, two fine dining restaurants, a buffet and three casual dining restaurants.
