Las Vegas - Celebrate Chinese New Year at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino
- Jan 28, 2013 - Feb 27, 2013
The Gold Coast Hotel and Casino will welcome the Year of the Snake -- an earthly symbol believed to bring mystery and delight -- with Chinese New Year events and promotions in January and February.
In what has become a Las Vegas Chinatown tradition, the Lohan School of Shaolin will perform a traditional Lion Dance through the casino on February 13 at 7:30 and 10 p.m. The event includes several dragons, a percussion procession and characters that will make several stops in the casino to pull ceremonial lettuce from the ceiling and toss the leaves to spectators. It is considered very lucky to be hit by a piece of lettuce during a Chinese New Year parade.
To celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Snake, the Gold Coast will hold multiple gaming promotions, including a $99 slot tournament on January 28 and 29, a $60,000 Bingo Bash on February 25 and 26, and a $5,000 Hot Seat Grab on February 27. Complete details and rules are posted at the property and are available at www.goldcoastcasino.com.
Chinese New Year decorations and lucky citrus trees will adorn the casino floor through February, and popular restaurants Ping Pang Pong and Noodle Exchange will serve authentic and delicious dishes.
