Hollywood Casino Jamul unveils Tony Gwynn's Sports Pub

20 January 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Jamul Indian Village of California (JIV) and a wholly owned subsidiary of Penn National Gaming, announced Tuesday the dining options to be available at Hollywood Casino Jamul in San Diego, including "Tony Gwynn's Sports Pub," the first ever Tony Gwynn themed sports bar.

With the casino expected to open in mid-2016, Tony Gwynn's Sports Pub will feature a significant collection of memorabilia from arguably the greatest athlete in San Diego's history.

"We are thrilled to partner with the Gwynn family to showcase 'Mr. Padre's' incredible collection of awards, uniforms, and personal mementos for our customers to enjoy," said Richard St. Jean, General Manager of Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego.

"It is surreal to have the first Tony Gwynn themed sports bar in our casino," said Michael Hunter, Executive Council Member of the Jamul Indian Village. "I grew up watching and rooting for the Padres, and Tony Gwynn was one of my heroes. It will be an honor to have his memorabilia at Hollywood Casino and we greatly appreciate the partnership with Alicia Gwynn and her family."

A variety of Gwynn memorabilia will be on display throughout the restaurant, including Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards, his personal narration of career highlights, game-used uniforms and equipment, and much more. A rendering of Tony Gwynn's Sports Pub can be viewed by clicking here.

"I am so excited to share Tony's legacy with Jamul Indian Village and the future visitors of Hollywood Casino," said Alicia Gwynn. "Not only was Tony a great player, he was an exceptional man. It will be wonderful to have his accomplishments highlighted in East County."

Alicia Gwynn is the President of the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation, a philanthropic organization dedicated to bettering the lives of disadvantaged children. Her work with the Foundation mirrors the goals of JIV's budding charitable organization, Acorns to Oaks.

"We are proud to join with Alicia Gwynn to highlight her husband's career and support their efforts with the less fortunate," said Erica Pinto, Chairwoman of the Jamul Indian Village. "Our philanthropic interests align and we look forward to working with her Foundation to support the greater San Diego community."

JIV is working together with Penn National Gaming to develop and operate Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, a $400 million gaming facility on the Tribe's sovereign land in Jamul, about 20 miles east of downtown San Diego on State Route 94. The casino will feature approximately 1,700 slot machines and 43 live table games.

Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego also announced the additional dining options to be available in the facility. They include:

-- Final Cut Steak & Seafood – a contemporary American steakhouse serving hand-cut to order USDA Wagyu and Prime Beef, fresh and local seafood, and an extensive wine list.
-- Emerald Chinese Cuisine – San Diego's premiere dim sum and Cantonese style restaurant is heading to East County to share their popular dishes.
-- Tres Taqueria – Customers will be able to enjoy some of the best tacos and burritos in southern California.
-- Pizza Port – Die-hard fans of this San Diego County institution will now be able to grab a slice in Jamul.
-- Ruby's Diner – Ruby's famous burgers and old-fashioned root beer floats will be available in our food court.

"We are very pleased with the variety of high quality dining options to be available at the facility," said St. Jean. "The collective brand recognition at Hollywood Casino will be unmatched in San Diego County, and our customers will be able to enjoy each of them under one roof."
