• Get Piggy With It!


    October is National Pork Month and Lady Luck Casino® Nemacolin is ready to celebrate! All month long we’re offering BBQ dishes, pork specials, games & promotions!

    You may be wondering why October is National Pork Month, and why we’re even celebrating it. Well, we’ve got some answers for you! Back in the day, pigs were marketed during the month of October, and the month eventually became the time when the relationship between pork producers and the consumers was commemorated. It’s themes of protecting and promoting the well-being of animals, along with ensuring practices to protect public health are very popular stances, making National Pork Month that much more important.

    You may not have known, but pork is the world’s most widely eaten meat, representing 42 percent of all meat consumed. Do you think you know the top 5 most popular pork products? Try and guess before reading on… they are bacon, ham, sausage, pork chops and luncheon meat!

    Most of us enjoy bacon with our breakfasts or barbecue pork chops for dinner, but we know little about the food we’re eating. Pork isn’t often mentioned, since consumers are usually bombarded with information on red meat, chicken and fish. However, pork is a gem glistening with fun facts:

  • Pork tenderloin cuts are almost as lean as skinless chicken breasts.
  • Pork has more protein than chicken and is high in B vitamins, iron and zinc.
  • Pork is the most versatile meat. It can be marinated, grilled, roasted, dry rubbed, boiled, pan-fried, stir-fried, skewered or microwaved.
  • Over a third of the fat in bacon is the same as the healthy fat found in olive oil.
  • Ham is the number one sandwich eaten in the United States.
  • Since it is October, we’re celebrating National Pork Month with The Big Pigout! It’s a mouthwatering barbecue event that features the aptly named Pig Out Platter. Head over to Otis & Henry’s® Bar and Grill between Monday and Thursday to order some sensational specials, featuring smoked sausage, smoked pork shoulder, ¼ rack ribs, and baked mac & cheese with coleslaw for only $16.99. The Pig Out Platter is offered all day long and smoked in house to ensure an authentic smoky flavor and fresh ingredients.
