Chris Cina seen in Black Hawk

Chris Cina's had some bad luck lately, with his last gig at Twig's Wine Bar and Pickles Deli in Tipsy's, a gigantic liquor store in Littleton, drying up fast last fall. And that was after an absolutely disastrous attempt to open T. Kelly's at 1361 Court Place.

Still, Cina's got an impressive resume -- with earlier stints at Aubergine and the Fourth Story -- and his luck may now have turned with his new job: at the gigantic Ameristar Casino in Black Hawk, which has put him in charge of the Timberline Grill, revamped for 24/7 gaming -- and the opening of Ameristar's 32-story hotel set for this fall.
