When we say "cranberries", what comes to mind?  Beautiful, vibrant red berries which bespeak crisp, fall days in the Northeast?  Cranberry beds flooded with an abundance of water to aide in harvesting? Juicy, moist roasted turkey with a side of yummy cranberry sauce or cranberry relish?  Well, all of those things readily spring to mind, but did you make the Henderson, Nevada connection?

Thanksgiving, it is said, is as American as apple pie.  It is one of our first National holidays having been created after a proclamation by George Washington in 1789.  Thanksgiving is one our favorite holidays here at the Emerald Island Casino.  Together with Christmas and New Year, Thanksgiving forms the wonderful trilogy of "the Holidays".  It is a time to gather together to celebrate our friends and family and to give thanks for the blessings in our lives. ​

Along with the cooler temperatures and falling leaves comes one of autumn's favorite flavors...Pumpkin! The warm golden orange color evokes autumnal treats... hot apple cider, caramel apples and all things pumpkin spice!!!!

pumpkin is basically a squash.  The most common type is round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and deep yellow to orange coloration. Inside their thick skin is a slimy stew of seeds and pulp. Pumpkins are native to North America and were originally grown for food.  Traditionally pumpkins were baked, mashed or stewed in savory dishes or in pumpkin pies.

We all know the story about the little piggies...you know, the one in which one little piggy ate roast beef, and one went “wee-wee-wee” all the way home. In that story one little piggy went to Market.  In the Emerald Island Casino version, five whole suckling pigs went to Market Street!  That’s right!   It's almost time for the Emerald Island Casino's fabulous Pig Out Party!

Emerald Island Casino is proud to announce that it will once again be entering team members to help crew a dragon boat in this year's Rose Regatta Dragon Boat Races and Festival.  The races and festival help to raise money for St. Dominican's R.E.D.
