Jerry's Nugget Turns 50 Part 2!



On Thursday, February 20th, the Las Vegas Bloggers Group was invited to an exclusive private Taste and Tweet event at Jerry's Nugget Casino in Downtown Las Vegas.

Normally a casino does not see it's 25th birthday, let alone it's 50th here in Las Vegas. To be a part of this historical even in beautiful Downtown Las Vegas was quite an honor. And it was made even better because I was able to bring my 4 year old along to enjoy the festivities.

The event took place inside the Casino at Uncle Angelo's. We got to met the chefs and staff who make the amazing pastries, cakes and pies we were going to sample. I took a couple pictures before heading in at the request of my son:


Inside I saw my favorite group of Bloggers, the Menu we would be sampling and an amazing Swag Bag fill of goodies: 





The Chefs, Raul and Burns, spoke to us about what goes into those creations and how they are made from scratch every day. They are not made with an over abundance of sugar like many other places and are hand crafted to perfection. 

They brought out one after another everything for us to enjoy. Including tarts, banana cream pie and their amazing anniversary cake which took about a month to make. The best part, it was soaked in Amaretto and was the most amazing cake I have ever tasted! 





My son throughly enjoyed most of these creations and told one of the bloggers his favorite was the chocolate cake, of course. 



This was an amazing event and I hope to go back soon to try more of these plus their world famous pizza. We even got to bring these goodies home!




Happy Birthday Jerry's! And thank you for this amazing opportunity!

Jerry's Nugget Is Turning 50!



It is a rare even in Las Vegas that a Casino turns 50 years old. Most make it to 20 and if they can not be renovated, they are torn down.

So to celebrate Jerry's turning the big 5-0 they are inviting bloggers around the area to join in a celebration. We will be blogging and tweeting away during the hour log event. Some of us will even have our kids helping to celebrate the event. 

There will be more to come after the event on February 20th and watch for the Twitter hashtag #Jerrys50
