02 Mar Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
While other casinos celebrate Irish culture and heritage only one day a year, here at the Emerald Island Casino we extend warm Irish hospitality all year long!!! The Emerald Island Casino’s motif, decor and commitment to making every customer feel welcome is a fond tribute to co-owners Michael and Tim Brooks’ mother’s Irish heritage.
Even before you enter the casino, the murals on the exterior walls and Celtic knots on the front and back doors herald what awaits you within. The murals, by artist Edwin Leishman, continue inside and grace the walls (and ceiling) with depictions of the Irish countryside and a bucolic Irish village. In the Emerald Island Grille another Celtic knot, crafted in stained glass by the artists at Lead in the Glass, hangs by the entrance to the kitchen.
At the Emerald Island Casino we really are devoted to giving each guest superior customer service. That spirit is embodied in the Gaelic phrases and quotations in the grille. The word “CRAIC” means “Let the good times roll!”. In Gaelic the phrase “Caed mile fáilte” literally means a hundred thousand welcomes! The first line to a tradition Irish blessing, “May the road always rise up to meet you”, adorns a wall in the Grille. That heartfelt blessing also includes lesser known lines such as “(U)ntil we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of of his hand” and “May pure be the joys that surround you, May true be the hearts that love you.”
A line from the chorus of the 1912 song “When Irish Eyes are Smiling” (written by Chauncey Olcott and George Graft, Jr.. and composed by Ernest Bell) is also displayed in the Emerald Island Grille. That line, “When Irish eyes are smiling sure they steal your heart away”, coupled with a line from the song’s second verse, “You should laugh all the while and all other times smile…”, reflects our mission to ensure that you have a great time here at the Emerald Island Casino! On St. Patrick’s Day we pull out all the stops! Come party with us on March 17, 2016, for our famous St. Patrick’s Day festival.
