With 83 table games, 30 poker tables, 2,900 slots and $406 million in jackpots later, the Rivers Casino was ready to roll into a celebration of its fifth anniversary.

“We've made it,” CEO Greg Carlin said. “The next five are only going to get bigger and better.”

On Aug. 8, an invitation-only crowd of 250 filtered into the banquet room for a champagne toast with the likes of GM Craig and Michele Clark, Sports & Exhibition Authority board chair Sen. Wayne Fontana and executive director Mary Conturo, Corey O'Connor and his wife, Katie, Rebecca Whitlinger, Mary Ann Miller, Pittsburgh Penguins COO Travis Williams and Nancy Angus.

After the requisite word or two at the podium and a promise of fireworks at dusk, the stage was taken over by Grammy Award-winners Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr., who once upon a time ushered in the Age of Aquarius as members of the 5th Dimension.
