Every year, as Thanksgiving Day approaches, I begin to savor the thought of loads of food. However, my dreams of turkey and pecan pies are quickly disturbed by visions of my nieces and nephews running through the house screaming, my father’s suggestions that he worked harder for a living “back in the day,” my sister’s emotional outbursts about not being mom’s favorite, and my grandma’s incessant requests for me to sing her favorite song, “Islands in the Stream” (I am no Kenny Rogers). So, this year I devised a plan of escape during the not-so-pleasant variety hour that surely happens in more homes than mine on Thanksgiving Day. I feel that it is only fair to spread the wealth and provide others with a few fun and time-consuming means of escape from their holiday woes. I have come up with a list of places you can enjoy in Tunica on your suspicious 3-hour run to “get more milk” Thanksgiving Day.
Fitz Casino & Hotel Tunica – Gobble up 10X point value on Thanksgiving day. Players can earn 10 times point value on any machine from 3-5 pm, 7-9pm and 11pm-1am. It’s ten times the excitement for playing some of the loosest slots in Tunica! Plus, winning a little cash can take your mind off just about anything.
GoldStrike Casino Tunica – Gold Strike’s Buffet Americana opens for brunch this Thanksgiving Day at noon until 9:30 p.m.. The spread will feature traditional brunch selections and crab legs.
Thanksgiving Day bring the family to Gold Strike’s Chicago Steakhouse and enjoy a feast. Begin the dining experience with Chicago Steakhouse’s specially crafted loaded deviled eggs. Select roasted organic turkey or rosemary honey ham, joined by turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, traditional dressing, baked mac and cheese, broccoli casserole and candied yams. Finish the spread off with a delectably baked pumpkin praline bread pudding with rum anglaise. Thanksgiving Day special is $55 before tax, reservations are recommended.
Hollywood Casino Tunica – The Epic Buffet enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixin’s for $17.99. At Fairbanks Steakhouse feast on your favorite Thanksgiving delicacies for $32.00. Celebrity Grill enjoy a turkey and dressing platter for only $8.99.
1st Jackpot – Enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Day buffet at Katt’s Kitchen for only $17.99.
Sam’s Town Tunica – Head over to Sam’s Town for a special Thanksgiving day buffet from 11am – 9pm for just $9.99.
Remember, all Tunica Casinos are open on Thanksgiving Day. Regardless of your reason for escape, Tunica will still offer its usual fun, excitement and culinary delights! And, for those whose “trip to the store for milk” may result in an overnight stay, there are several casino hotels in Tunica that can accommodate you during your visit. I sincerely hope that I have provided you with enough escape routes to thoroughly enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. Go forth with the knowledge that, should the need arise at any time, you can always slip away to Tunica. After all, it is just down the road.
