The tweet was signed by "Scotty B" who I surmised at that time ran their social media. Scotty B posted additional information over on the Yelp forums. Here are some exercpts:

River Rock is currently closed due to filing Chapter 11...

As for the bankruptcy documents, you can look them up down at the Federal Courthouse downtown as I did yesterday or sign up for the PACE service on their website.
