Poker at Margarita Breeze Discontinued

Effective immediately poker at Margarita Breeze has been discontinued permanently.  This is primarily due to a misunderstanding regarding payment for the service of Texas Hold’Em entertainment.  There were other underlying issues, the largest of which was numerous complaints by our players regarding service and food.  We apologize for the short life of this venue.  We are actively pursuing a new Friday night venue.  As always, any and all comments or suggestions may be submitted to or Facebook/Playerspokertour.  Thank you.
