Default Alhambra Casino Renovation and Donuts

There's a lot going on at the Alhambra Casino these days, parking lot's being redone completely, they're working on the facade. One of the attachments to the small shopping mall they had there was Dunkin Donuts which is always an immediate draw whenever I drive by with the kids. Sometimes I wish they wouldn't notice it (you know all that sugar = kids bouncing off walls) but now that it's gone (its razed as you'll see in the picture below), a little bit of their childhood fun has already become a memory. Weird. Perhaps they'll build another one there, I don't know.

Here are a few pics, the rest are in an album.

We were told that most of the shops will be returning when renovations are complete and that the original site of the Roseland Buffet will become a food court which will include the Dunkin Donuts.

No, it's not... Jeanine.

Of the stores, when I left there on February 26th, all that was standing was Subway.

I can't wait until the shopping center's finished. It'll once again be a nice little place to browse around through the shops, and grab a quick bite, too!

We were told the Roseland building will become a food court, including Subway, Dunkin Donuts and more.

Liz... I heard they were going to demolish that building, too, and build a totally new food court. I asked a few times when I was in Subway, but I don't think the ladies understood what I was asking.

Can only say what we were told by security guys from the casino. Anything will be better than the way that building looks now.
