Most bars and clubs in the casinos regularly offer promotions – concepts like 2-for-1 drafts, 50-cent wings and “ladies night” are all nice excuses to come out and have a few drinks, but this month there are several spots offering a truly worthwhile reason to come out – raising money to fight breast cancer.
Throughout October these spots will offer special, pink-themed cocktails, with a portion of the proceeds going to the cause.
ResortsResorts Casino Hotel throws its support at the cause full force as Bar One, DraftKings Sports Bar, BreadSticks Cafe, Capriccio, Cielo and EastWind will all offer a $10 Greyhound cocktail, which features Tito’s Vodka and pink grapefruit juice, garnished with a slice of grapefruit. For every Greyhound that is purchased, $5 will be donated to the American Cancer Society. That’s pretty amazing. Most places will generously give $1 for every drink, so $5 makes this our top pick. Also at Resorts, frozen drink paradise Wet Willies will help the cause with their Pink Flamingo frozen daiquiri, with $1 from every purchase to benefit American Cancer Society. Resorts is located at 1133 Boardwalk in Atlantic City. Go to ResortsAC.com.
Caesars PropertiesCaesars Atlantic City, Tropicana Atlantic City and Harrah’s Resort are all on board in support of breast cancer awareness as the properties will donate $1 for every Tito’s Handmade Vodka cocktail sold. At Caesars, participating locations include Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill and Nero’s Italian Steakhouse. Tropicana will donate $1 for every Tito’s cocktail sold at Boogie Nights, 10 North, Chelsea Five Gastropub, Il Verdi and Tango’s throughout the month of October. Over at Harrah’s, the Tickled Pink Cocktail – a mix of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Cointreau, fresh lime juice and cranberry juice – is the signature cocktail for the promotion. Tito’s Handmade Vodka will also donate $10,000 to the cause. How awesome is that?! Go to Caesars.com.
Atlantic CityThe Nugget may be “golden,” but there is an awful lot of pink there this month. Throughout October, participating Golden Nugget restaurants will offer a signature Pink Drink and donate $1 from each drink sold to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
