Rounding Up the Beef
Beef cattle production represents the largest single segment of American agriculture. In 2014 there were 729 thousand beef cow operations in the United States, and 25.5 billion pounds of beef was consumed. Moreover, calorie for calorie, beef is one of the most nutrient-rich foods. This is reason enough to commemorate Angus and Herford. As it is the unofficial start of the grilling season, May is aptly designated National Beef Month.
This year, you’ll find the beef at Lady Luck Casino® Black Hawk. In honor of National Beef Month, we will be grilling up some beef every day in May.
Otis & Henry's® will be rounding up the beef and will highlight featured beef specials every week throughout the month. Start the National Beef Month festivities with a bang by celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a Steak Sandwich; Give mom the night off and treat her to Otis & Henry’s Meatloaf for Mother’s Day; or observe Memorial Day with some American favorites and order the Bacon Wrapped Chop Steak. Other daily beef specials to expect this month are:
• Smoked Prime Rib
• Smoked Beef Short Ribs
• Smoked Beef Brisket
• Steak Fajita Chimichanga
• Roasted Garlic Rubbed Ribeye
• Beef Pot Pie
• Beef Stuffed Peppers
• Steak Gorgonzola with Fettuccini
• Sliced London Broil
Remember, Otis & Henry’s opens at 7 a.m. and closes at 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, midnight on Fridays and 1 a.m. on Saturdays. For more information on hours, check us out here.
Our preparations for the month-long beef celebration has us doing more than just cooking. We recently took to social media seeking assistance from our fans and followers in naming our three cow mascots of the month. Thanks to the social media cattle-naming aficionados (who each won a $50 dining credit at Otis & Henry’s for their creativity), visitors to the casino during the month of May will be greeted by three cutout cows who will be “moo-ving” around the premises & the town! Like us on Facebook® or follow us on Twitter® to keep track of our mooing mascots and upcoming promotions, such as our Prize Patrol.
While visiting us, take advantage of the many opportunities to work up an appetite in preparation for some savory red meat. Take a tour of the gaming floor and try your hand at one of the many tables or machines, or put your luck to the test by participating in our numerous promotions and giveaways. Once you’ve had the chance to devour some of our fine beef selections, feel free to sleep off any food comas by booking a room at our hotel.
Spend your month with us and our mascots to tip your hats to the cattlemen who contribute to the local, state and national economy. Happy National Beef Month, everyone!
