Yelpers, start your engines! The KC Elite Squad spent an evening doing laps around Hollywood Casino, with fantastic food, drinks and fun around every corner. Whether it was sampling selections from four different restaurants, competing in a scavenger hunt, or racing to win tickets to a NASCAR event, everybody agrees: this was a 5-star experience that wasn't to be missed!
Before they rode the escalator up to host restaurant Turn2, each guest was given a scavenger hunt list that sent them throughout the casino's many dining options. Whether counting the (49!) TVs in Turn2 or browsing the Hollywood memorobelia at Final Cut, Yelpers enjoyed the opportunity to test-drive the casino's culinary selections.
Of course, what's checking out a restaurant without sampling their food? The hosts made sure that everybody had plenty of fuel in their tanks, with tasty bites from all four restaurants. Sushi and spring rolls from Epic Buffet, pork sliders and shrimp tacos from Turn2 and chicken and waffles from Marquee Cafe. All were excellent, but the checkered flag went to a taste of Final Cut's new Thursday night special: strip steak, baked potato and Caesar salad. Normally $19.99, the complimentary bites whetted appetites and had people promising to return.
Yelpers kept their skills sharp by competing for a chance to win tickets to the upcoming Hollywood Casino 400. The challenge was simple: by the end of the night have the fastest time in Mario Kart! Many came close to winning, but there was only room for one victor, who made everybody else eat his (virtual) dust.
At the end of the night, the casino hosts thanked everybody for attending and everybody that got 100% on the scavenger hunt was entered in a drawing for restaurant gift certificates! Then all were sent on their way with casino gift bags full of swag to keep your gaming skills sharp!
Thanks to everybody for coming and making the event a success. Thank you to Hollywood Casino for showing us all such a great time. I know I'll be back to do some gaming and some dining, and I hope you will too.
Your friendly CM,
