    On west side I have 40 untouched acres, 30 acres on the north, and another 40 acres untouched, cows and horses. I'm a renter.

    On the south side,, right across the street is the biggest casino in northern California. At the end of the street, about 1/4 mile is the urban spread and it's booming. The casino is around a year old, down the street they're building a hotel and the very first Amy's Kitchen fast food restaurant. Really looking forward to that.

    I want to have an ongoing weekend garage sale that focuses on musical things. Maybe rent space for others for like $20.

    With the casino right there I would like to somehow parasitically feed off them. Somehow use them in my advertising, something witty like "don't nlow your money at the casino, blow it here.

    Maybe something better,,,


    How might you all do this? Any suggeztions that might attract the gamblers with full pockets of "fun money"??!

    Thanks

    As long as you don't use the casino's name specifically, you might be alright. My landscaper's business used to be called Wild Horse Landscaping, but the local casino, Wild Horse Pass Resort & Casino sent him a cease and desist order threatening legal action if he didn't change his company name.

    As noted above, I'd also check you local zoning ordinances. Not sure if you could hold that kind of an activity on the property (which could be considered a flea market or a swap meet) without at least obtaining some kind of permit first.
