Another trip down memory lane -- the Palomars. I liked those chips -- and have a few souvenir chips around somewhere --- but the worst part of owning more would be being reminded of what that tiny cardroom was like. Worst dump I've ever played in, anywhere. I was amazed that San Diego didn't have something a lot nicer downtown.
IIRC, I read that it closed, not all that long ago......Checking ChipGuide, five years ago! Wow! And looking at Google Maps, I see it's been razed -- probably something new built there by now.
