They asked me to come out and bring 6 of my friends with me for a night of BIG food and BIG fun! Here are Steve and Marla posing so nicely in front of Marquee.
I will warn you – it’s a photo-heavy blog – but I just wanted you to see how much darned fun we had!
We started with a couple of appetizers – first up was a basket of Fried Pickles, Sticks and ‘Shrooms ($8.99). This was served with a side of Chipotle Ranch. Everybody really loved this appetizer. The “sticks” were green beans – which was a unique addition. The mushrooms were my favorite part because they were portabella – not just button. Good stuff!
Then the girls (Holly on the left) kept telling us we needed to get the giant pretzel. After suggesting it a couple of times – we caved – thank goodness we did!!! The Texas Twist ($12.99) is served with honey mustard and beer cheese. Now it doesn’t look that ominous on the tray but…
The pretzel was also really good – it was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The sauces were good as well – the beer cheese was my favorite for sure.
The mega burger is made with a two-pound Hawaiian toasted bun; two all beef seasoned patties totaling five pounds; one pound of sliced American, Swiss or cheddar cheese; a half-head of Iceberg lettuce; three sliced tomatoes; three thin-sliced sweet onions; four pickle spears; five onion rings; and a pound and a half of seasoned French fries. Plus a pound if bacon if you so choose. (and we did of course)
And after being cut up into 8 wedges – here was my slice. Two patties and lots of good stuff. I couldn’t get my mouth around it (yes yes yes – that’s what she said). The entire table was really surprised at how good it was! It was juicy and flavorful – just like a burger should be!
I have to say it again – every single person was a bit wary – thinking we were basically going to get a hunk of meatloaf on a bun or something – but no – this was a delicious burger – that just happened to weigh 10 pounds.
The burger is $60 – but really – split that between 8-10 people and it’s a good price!
That’s right folks – BOOGIE NIGHTS was awaiting us! Boogie Nights is an incredibly fun nightclub inside the casino and it’s got a definite 80s theme which these guys were certainly embracing!
We had VIP passes to Boogie Nights (
Once inside we had no idea what to expect – the escalator invited us into the fun!
They also have “entertainment” like break-dancers and lip sync artists. Can you tell who these two guys are?
And after a fantastic night of food and fun – Marla couldn’t leave without trying on the pink afro wig upstairs.
