The Pala Band of Mission Indians celebrated the opening of its $100 million expansion of the Pala Casino Spa and Resort over the Memorial Day weekend. Swinerton Builders is the General Contractor at Pala. The expansion included additions to dining and gaming areas. With the arrival of Choices, Amigo's and Sushi Sake, the resort now offers 10 dining places. Choices was expanded to 20,000 square feet and has eight cooking stations. Amigo's offers Mexican cuisine with quick-serve style service, a salsa bar and cantina-style indoor and outdoor seating. Sushi Sake is a full-service sushi bar and offers traditional sushi, sashimi and rolls as well as an assortment of specialty rolls.

The casino floor has been expanded with a new Poker Room and High Limit Area. The Poker Room features 15 tables, private cage windows and tableside dining and will have a tournament schedule and jackpot promotions. The High Limit Area, a private "casino within the casino," raises the stakes with three redesigned rooms. The Slot Room, Table Games Room and exclusive High Limit Lounge are each accessible via a separate entrance.
