St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner, and many casinos in Las Vegas plan to celebrate this huge holiday in style, with a lot of people and suitable entertainment. Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady issued a list of their plans for this big day as they are making final preparations in order to pay tribute to this Irish holiday.
Some of the popular events will include several live music performances, most of which are somehow related to Celtic music and the Irish culture. One of the bands to perform there will be The McKrells, which play Celtic tunes that people enjoy dancing to. The venue will also host a U2 tribute band called Unforgettable Fire, as well as a tribute band that plays the 80s hard rock music called Mullet that will perform during the weekend.
However important to Irish culture and St. Patrick’s Day, music is not the only thing that will decorate this event, as the organizers did their best to provide food related to Ireland. Irish-themed food will include delicious dishes such as Duke’s Chophouse, Flipt, and Van Slyck’s. Naturally, special drinks will also be a part of the menu that people will be able to enjoy during the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.
Finally, people who visit such events probably want to buy something that will remind them of the wonderful time they had while celebrating 2019 St. Patrick’s Day, which is why the organizers prepared a specter of authentic products that visitors will be able to shop at the Lennon’s of Schenectady’s pop-up shop. It will be located across the Event Center which is only a couple of feet away from the main Casino floor of this facility.
Details about the Celebration
Rivers Casino Director of Marketing, Rob Christopher, stated that they had an exciting weekend celebration which was planned for St. Patrick’s Day and that they were thrilled to host Lennon’s of Schenectady pop-up shop. He added that they had thought it would be a nice addition to the weekend festivities and that they were always happy to bring local businesses into fitting events and help them.
Lennon’s is a popular store located on Jay Street in Schenectady, and it offers a wide variety of Irish products such as food, gifts, clothing, jewelry, and even food. Furthermore, a part of Lennon’s is reserved for popular Irish sweets that visitors will be able to enjoy during the celebration.
When it comes to food, all Irish-themed specials will be available as a part of the offer. One of them that stands out is Duke’s Chophouse, which consists of corned beef shank, mashed potatoes, and cabbage. This specialty will be available for $30 a meal.
The music is the most important aspect of this celebration, and the first band to start the show will be Unforgettable Fire, who will hit the stage at Event Center at Rivers Casino on Friday, with doors being open from 7 pm. If you haven’t had an opportunity to enjoy one of the biggest Irish bands of all time live at a concert, this is the next best thing as their performance will make you feel like you are actually listening to U2. However, this show will be available only for Rush Rewards members who will receive the complimentary ticket to the show. The seating is limited, and it will be a first-come, first-served type of distribution, so make sure to be there on time not to miss this outstanding band.
Music shows will end with The McKrells performing on Sunday from 4 pm to 6 pm in the Events Center, so make sure not to miss this premier Irish band that will make you get up on your feet and dance to traditional tunes.
