2012 Sneak Peek Directory Subscribe Advertise Contact Gold Strike (Tunica, Miss.) Excitement never sleeps at Gold Strike Tu- nica, where red-hot Vegas action meets stunning Southern style. The dazzle starts with Mississippi artist John Whitt's unique stained glass sculpture, front and center in Gold Strike Tunica's remodeled lobby. It extends to the state-of- the art convention center, the award-winning Chicago Steakhouse and the stylish 800-seat Millennium Theatre, where the biggest names in country music take the stage. The party keeps going at Stage 2, with live music and dancing right in the middle of the casino action. Energy gets re- newed with visits to the Golden Reflections Spa or a dip in the pool. Beyond the resort, there's access to riverboat explorations, history and heritage at Tunica River Park. More adven- tures await in nearby Memphis at Graceland, Beale Street and the Orpheum Theater. ■ Beau Rivage (Biloxi, Miss.) "Absolutely spectacular" best describes a whole new look for the convention floor. The just-completed renovation fea- tures new air walls, carpets, wall coverings and furnishings in the state-of-the-art facility. Extravagant and cutting-edge are among the terms applied to the on-site entertainment events, with legendary and upcoming vocalists and comedi- ans, top-line magicians and dance troupes gracing the state- of-art Beau Rivage Theatre. After hours, the Coast nightclub is the place to make the scene on Mississippi's gulf coast. Upscale and up-to-the-minute amenities can be found at the world-class spa and luxury boutique shops. Glitz, glamor and great food prevail at BR Prime steakhouse and the Pan- Asian restaurant Jia. And when it's time to relax, there's the peaceful and picturesque Gulf of Mexico beaches with pow- der-fine sand, warm waters and access to sensational sport fishing. ■ Paragon (Marksville, La.)
