Best Places For New Year’s Eve Off The Strip

Are you ready for the New Year? Well, hang on because we only have a few more days until 2018! If you’re looking to ring in 2018 right, there is no better way than to Skip the Strip! Las Vegas is undoubtedly a destination for New Year’s Eve festivities, but here are a few reasons your best bet isn’t on the 4 mile stretch of the Strip.

1. Best Place to Watch the Fireworks
While one of the best fireworks displays in the country is right here in Las Vegas, sometimes it’s better to watch all the fireworks on the Strip from afar. Find an elevated parking garage and enjoy the view from the top floor. Make sure to dress warm because the fireworks show will last from 8 to 10 minutes.

2. Best Place to Kick Start Your New Year’s Resolutions
Before the New Year’s parties, food and champagne, kick start your New Year’s goals with a 10K/5K/1M Resolution Run at Kellogg-Zaher Park. This is a great race for walkers and runners alike, and strollers are welcome. The race begins at 4 p.m. so there’s plenty of time afterward to get ready for the rest of your evening festivities. Finishers will get a shirt and a finishers award.

3. Best Place to See a New Year’s Eve Show
There is no shortage of high caliber entertainment in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve, but this year The Smith Center brings renowned Emmy and Tony winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth to the stage. An electrifying, high-energy performance featuring Chenoweth’s powerhouse vocals backed by the extraordinary talent of her five-piece band, this special evening will showcase the stage and screen star’s wide-ranging repertoire and dazzling personality.

4. Best Place to Celebrate Early with the Family
Celebrate Noon Year’s Eve at Town Square Las Vegas from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Festivities will include an inflatable slide and rock wall, bounce houses, face painting and balloon artists. A DJ from 98.5 KLUC will mix the music for a dance party as everyone counts down to noon. At noon, ring in the New Year with a flavorful juice box toast and balloon drop.

5. Best Place to Try Something New
Ring in the 2018 New Year with BLACKOUT “Dining in the Dark.” Enjoy a complete sensory experience while you enjoy your entire meal in a pitch black dining room. For guests that are dining when the clock strikes midnight, they will be able to join in on a very special BLACKOUT countdown.

But, if you are looking for a place for the locals, Silverton Casino is your off-Strip NYE party headquarters.

Parking has undeniably become a nightmare for those who aren’t used to paying to park, even locals have reached the limit on their grace period, and everyone will have to fork out for putting it in park anywhere near most properties. Silverton Casino always has free parking and valet available, as well as a Lyft Lounge for those waiting for their ride.

Hefty Prices
It’s no surprise that the Strip comes with a hefty price tag. So, we’re celebrating from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. with bottomless beverages for only $25 when you buy your Skip the Strip tickets in advance, plus $5 off a New Year’s Eve specialty buffet dinner at Seasons with your Skip the Strip ticket beginning at 9 p.m.

Don’t miss the DJ dance party that kicks off at 10 p.m. inside Veil Pavilion, leading up to a countdown to 2018 with a champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight!

Behind the Veil: Eddie Money

Eddie Money is headed to Veil Pavilion, but before he takes the stage on Saturday, September 30th we’re going to take a look Behind the Veil of the Brooklyn born singer so you’ll be that friend 100 percent in the know before the doors even open and you’re handing over your two tickets to paradise.

Talk about backing the badge, Eddie Money, born Edward Joseph Mahoney actually served as a New York City Police Officer for two years before placing his career on hold in 1968 to pursue music. I think it’s safe to assume that he made the right choice, and that hold became indefinite.

Eddie Money

Money has opened the summer concert season at the most attended amphitheater in the country, DTE Energy Music Theatre in Michigan, for nearly two decades making him the true sound of the season for the concert goers in Michigan and around the world.

Jesse Money, Eddie’s daughter, keeps it in the family taking after her father, joining him on tour singing backup vocals. Jesse is Eddie’s only daughter, he also has four sons, Zachary, Joseph, Desmond and Julian.

Hear something familiar when you’re playing one of your favorite video games? You can hear some of Money’s music in hit video games Guitar Hero and Grand Theft Auto.

Don’t adjust your television! Money has made appearances on “King of Queens” and even played Mimi’s ex-husband on the on “The Drew Carey Show”.

Most importantly, Eddie Money will be performing all of his hits in a just a few short weeks.

Talking Tequila with Patrón

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, more! Whether you enjoy slowly sipping a refreshing margarita or shooting them back with your friends, everyone has their own way to enjoy tequila. One of the world’s most popular tequila brands, Patrón, has quite the reputation of being able to bring the best of agave to the table, but how much you do you really know about this iconic squared bottle tequila?

  • What is in a name? The name “Patron” is usually associated with charitable of financially supportive individual, but the meaning that John Paul De Joria and Martin Crowley preferred for their brand name was “big boss”. Also, the symbol for Patron Tequila is a bee because of the strong attraction of bee to the blue agave plant.
  • Patrón’s master distiller, Francisco Alcaraz, has been with the brand since the beginning in 1989.
  • Going green? Patrón bottles are made from recycled glass in Mexico. The cork however is from Portugal.
  • Each bottle of Mexican tequila features a four digit code, the Norma Oficial Mexicana, or NOM for short, which indicates which distillery in which it is made. Patrón’s is 1492, which is why you can find that number on every bottle of Patrón.
  • After you open a bottle of tequila you have about one or two months before oxidization and evaporation lower the quality of tequila and destroys the agave profile. So drink up to take advantage of the tequila at its finest.
  • You can enjoy Patrón Barrel Select, Patrón Silver and Patrón XO in either a Grapefruit Cucumber Mint Mojito, Baja Frappe, Emperador Margarita, El Burro De Sandia or Depeche cocktail along with complimenting food and dessert items for only $40 at Mi Casa Grill Cantina’s Patrón Social on Thursday, September 14th, right before Mexican Independence Day.
  • Silverton Casino actually has its very own hand selected Patrón barrel that is not only on display, but available for your drinking pleasure at Mi Casa Grill Cantina.

Sway Pool

Dine on a Dime
Head to Seasons Buffet on Labor Day, Monday, September 5th for buy one buffet, get one free. Who wants to go through the labor of cooking, especially on a labor-less day, when you can have endless variety at your fingertips with no end in sight?


It’s against the law to put a close on another fabulous summer without snacking on something sweet and chilly, let’s be honest it’s still triple digits outside! Sundance Grill has all the flavors you could dream of, ready to be served as you say sayonara to summer 2017. Don’t worry; Sundance will still be serving gelato even after the long sunny days are gone.


Rub Fins with the Mermaids
When you’re not soaking up the sunshine out at Sway Pool, visit our most popular residents, other than the stingrays of course, at the aquarium. Wave at a mermaid as she swims by, if you’re lucky she may blow you a bubbly kiss!


Whatever you have planned this Labor Day Weekend, we hope that it involves kicking your feet up, relaxing and hopefully doing something that is truly labor-less to you!

One Drunk Puppy and Many Shelter Animals

We’re getting all geared up for One Drunk Puppy Wine Tasting Event to benefit The Animal Foundation this Saturday. Sipping wine to help shelter animals, what could be better? Whether you’re there for the wine or to support the wet noses there is no better time to talk about some common myths about beloved shelter dogs.

Here are some common phrases that can be heard when talking about rescuing a dog from the shelter.

“You can’t find a purebred in a shelter”
No breed is immune to ending up in a shelter. Also, many shelters have waiting lists
that alert you if the specific breed you are looking for does turn up.
But before you even commit to a breed, make sure they match with your lifestyle
so you don’t end up being that person that irresponsibly adopts a dog and then
ends up bringing it back to the shelter when things simply don’t work to
compliment your living situation.

“I want a puppy. Shelters have older dogs”
Dogs of all ages can be found in shelters. Yes, there are older dogs as well, but some
prospective owners aren’t equipped to handle the ball of energy, and sometimes destruction, that comes with having a puppy. It may be nice to have dog that is already house trained and just ready to be loved. Loyalty knows no age limit, and more often than not they’re just so eternally grateful to be out of the shelter and headed to a home to be loved.

“I don’t want to pay adoption fees, I want a free dog”
There is absolutely no such thing as a free dog. Even if you manage to rescue a pup
without paying an adoption fee, you have shots, chipping, spay/neutering, food, kennel etc. While the price is subjective on the adoption fee, if you do not have the means to take care of a pet, it’s not fair to them, especially if it means they end up back at the shelter. Dogs are a
lifelong investment.

One Drunk Puppy

While there will not be animals at One Drunk Puppy, we encourage you to visit The Animal Foundation to find your forever friend, or participate in the auction to benefit them and bring home yourself, or if you already have a forever friend, them home something great!


Grab Your Glasses: Solar Eclipse Viewing

Next Monday all of North America will have their, protected, eyes to the skies to witness one of nature’s amazing sights, a solar eclipse.

Now what exactly does that mean for those of us that aren’t up to date on our celestial events? Basically, a solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for around three hours, dependent upon your location. The last time a solar eclipse was witnessed in North America was in 1979.

Eclipses How

For Las Vegas specifically, it begins at 9:09 a.m. will be at its peak at 10:27 a.m. and ends at 11:52 a.m. At its peak, in Las Vegas we will witness at 70 percent solar eclipse, much like the 70 percent off that will be offered at Seasons Buffet for Silverton Rewards Club members in honor of this celestial occasion.

Be sure to head to the Player’s Club at Silverton Casino beginning at 8 a.m. to claim your free pair of solar eclipse glasses, for the first 1000 guests, before heading out to capture this phenomenon from the perfect vantage point on the fifth floor of the parking garage. As mentioned, afterwards grab a celebratory 70 percent off lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Seasons Buffet after the viewing for Silverton Rewards Club members.

Top Questions Asked by Brides Planning Their Big Day

We sat down with Event Sales Manager, Angie Christenson, also known as the woman that will make your dreams come true, and asked her to address the top questions she gets asked by brides-to-be to help you be one step ahead of the game when it comes to smooth sailing while creating your perfect day.


Q Do you provide a coordinator/event manager for the day of the wedding?

A Yes, a coordinator is part of our Veil Pavilion rental package to help you with your onsite ceremony and/or reception planning. The coordinator will also help ensure all your vendors have arrived/set up on the day of the event so the Bride doesn’t have to worry about if the cake has arrived!


Q: My ceremony is booked off site, is there a shuttle available to Silverton for my guests?

A: We do not provide shuttle services, however we can recommend local companies that provide can provide shuttles, limos, party busses and transportation of that nature.

PRO TIP: Transportation does not have to be provided to and from the locations; however, it is helpful in creating a stress free day for both the wedding party and your guests if your ceremony and reception are in two different locations.

Veil Pavilion

Q: What if we want the reception to go longer than the time allotted in the venue?

A: You have the opportunity to purchase additional hours of the venue, however it is best to pre purchase the extra time as there is no guarantee on the day of the event that we will be able to accommodate any extra time for the reception. It is best to plan for the party to keep going!


Q: Can I bring in my own wedding vendors, such as DJ and Photographer?

A: Yes, we allow outside vendors for your events at Veil Pavilion for no additional charge. We also work with preferred vendors that will often offer discounts for booking with Silverton Casino, so either way, we have you covered.


Q: Can I bring in my own catering company?

A: While we do not allow any outside food and beverage at our events we do offer a full catering menu that includes appetizers, plated or buffet meals, and bar packages. We also have the ability to customize, don’t see your favorite meal or have a special request? In most cases we are happy to work with the Bride and Groom to create the perfect menu for your event!


Q: How early can I get into the venue for set up?

A: We will provide ample time for set up on the day of your event. Our event staff can even set up your DIY decor for you for a small additional fee.

PRO TIP: Account for tasks to take longer than anticipated on your wedding day. Allot yourself plenty of time for set up (better yet, enlist family and friends to help with decor or hire professionals), as well as hair and make-up, dressing, etc. No need to create extra, unnecessary stress on your big day.
