      The Roger Williams Park Casino isn't the kind you're thinking of...with slot machines and such.  It's a gorgeous old manor with huge white columns, and is an amazing place to have a wedding.  The interior of the upstairs dining room is completely breathtaking...elaborate molding and details...I couldn't stop staring at it.  Really lovely.
