Getting Back Into Dodge

By Linda Tancs

The Old West town of Dodge City, Kansas inevitably evokes images of saloons and shootouts.  The violent history underlying the early settlement of  Boot Hill, in particular, can be imagined while strolling through the old cemetery and its memorials to cowboys both known and unknown.  Given its legendary past, it’s easy to understand why the denizens of the day would be eager to get out of Dodge.  Today all that gore gives way to gaming with Boot Hill’s casino and resort, the first state-owned and operated gambling hall in Kansas. Phase 1 of the project now offers 580 slot machines and thirteen table games including such standards as blackjack, craps, roulette and poker.  Phase 2 of the resort, slated for a December 2011 opening, will feature a hotel, day spa, two more restaurants and lounges, and more game space to lose–er, donate–your cash.  A veritable hodgepodge to get you back into Dodge.
