Tim and Tom Promise Vegas Return

When the hands-on owners of the Golden Nugget casino announced plans last week to sell the landmark property to a Houston-based restaurant giant, many wondered whether tireless downtown cheerleaders Tim Poster and Tom Breitling were bailing out on downtown and, for that matter, the casino business.

After all, locals reasoned, tales abound of newcomers who don't have the stomach to roll with the punches in a notoriously competitive industry.

Poster and Breitling say they will be back in the Las Vegas gaming business soon enough, though they haven't decided in what form. They also dismiss concerns that have surfaced in recent weeks that the $295 million sale to Landry's Restaurants Inc. presented an opportunity to abandon a downtown experiment that didn't pan out or that regulatory and management problems led to the surprise deal.
