Sinatra's old Tahoe resort to get major makeover

File-This July 1997 file photo shows The Cal Neva Lodge. The Cal Neva hotel-casino straddling the California-Nevada line will close for more than a year beginning Monday to allow for the multimillion-dollar project. Criswell-Radovan co-owner Robert Radovan says the 219-room, 10-story hotel and 6,000-square-foot (560-square-meter) casino will be upgraded in an effort to revive the struggling property. His Napa Valley, California-based development company acquired the Cal Neva in April. During its heyday from 1960 to 1963, the resort was owned by Sinatra and drew fellow Rat Pack members Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Lawford. Owners hope to reopen the Cal Neva on Dec. 12, 2014, which would have been Sinatra's 99th birthday. (AP Photo/Reno Gazette Journal, David B.
