2015: What a Great Year!
Lady Luck Casino® Nemacolin has seen a full calendar of exciting events in 2015. From parties and special promotions, to dining and gaming, we've been host to a whirlwind of celebration and joy all year long. We've been happy to celebrate with our staff & guests, and as the year winds down, let’s take a look at some of our favorite moments of the year!
Highlights of 2015
- The Big Pigout
October was a time for Halloween treats and celebrating National Pork Month. Our barbecue event, The Big Pigout, was featured from October 1 to November 12 at our famed restaurant, Otis & Henry’s® Bar and Grill. We offered mouthwatering specialties, such as ribs and pig shoulders with southern style cooking.
The Big Pigout also saw our "Break the Bank" promotion, where three winners could walk away with up to $1,000. Guests were happy win big and pig out all month long!
- Play More Be Happy™ Employee Dance-Off
Spring was the time for our Play More, Be Happy celebration. Employees from all our 15 properties competed in a two-phase competition with our guests as special judges. This exciting event danced away from May 21 to June 30 with online voting.
Viewers could vote for their favorite dancers, and the finalists competed for the title of Ultimate Happy Dance Winner. Our employees at Lady Luck shined brightly and emerged strong contestants in this special event. Of course, we already knew that our casino's staff were happy enough to dance.
- New Food Menu at Lady Luck
Our guests love Otis & Henry's® restaurant as much as our staff, and we were proud to present our new menu in 2015. From appetizers to entrees, guests were delighted to dine on exciting new dishes in-between gaming.
Our lunches and dinners began to include sizzling barbecue burgers and New York strip steak. Our famed sandwiches got an update with open-faced roast beef and beer-battered fish varieties. Otis & Henry's also introduced an all-you-can-eat special with seafood on Fridays and prime rib on Saturdays!
- Local Entertainment
We know the Lady Luck experience isn’t complete without entertainment! During the month of March, we celebrated our hometown pride by inviting local musicians to play for our guests over the weekend. With various artists specializing in reggae to country music, we feel like we can still here the unique sounds!
Special musicians included country veteran, Shelly McCombie, named as the #1 Female Country Vocalist by Pittsburgh Magazine. Our guests loved singing along to the reggae sounds of Red Lion Reggae on March 21, as well. Stay tuned for our musical lineup for 2016!
- Chili Cook-Off
June 13 was a special day for our guests who prefer the spicier things in life. Our 6th Annual Five Alarm Mountain Madness Chili Cook-Off was approved by the International Chili Society and brought restaurants from all over the area to compete in creating fiery and fantastic fare.
With a membership fee, guests could gain access to chili tasting, as well as events like rope courses and zip-lines over the scenic Pennsylvania area. Winners received a one-night stay at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, a special plaque, and a $100 Resort Amenity Credit!
- Seafood Takeover
We celebrated the summer months with fresh catches of seafood for our hungry guests. We rang in the warmer weather with decadent dinners during our Seafood Takeover! Whether our guests were aficionados or newcomers to the taste of fish and seafood morsels, we always tried to offer the best in seafood dining.
Crispy specials, like fish fry for two and fried jumbo shrimp with a side of coleslaw, diversified our menu. Our lobster and crab boil entrees featured the finest shellfish in the area with additions like corn on the cob and new potatoes.
