I don't know any low brow or brick n mortar casino's around, but Comemrce Casino is los angeles is the best poker room in southern california
. If you can't make it up to LA, there's BERONA casino down by san diego that's awesome( heck the place is endorsed and maybe partially owned by Kenny Rogers) and also there's pechanga casino which isn't bad, but if you want to make some money in so. cal i would head to commerce. or you can try to go play with the drunks at hollywood park, usually equally prfitable but a little more nanoying. gl.
