Beer pong hits the big time at casino 

Remember those college nights full of beer pong? Does it seem like it has been forever since you relived those days?

Well, they don’t have to be distant memories any more, thanks to the Silver Legacy Resort Casino.

Thursdays are now Beer Pong Night at the Silver Legacy in Reno, Nev. Guests can earn extra cash and enjoy drinks from 10 p.m. to midnight — with the Bud Girls following the action — every Thursday at Rum Bullions Island Bar.

Get in the game with weekly, winner-takes-all tournaments. There is a $20 buy-in and winners take all each game, meaning you don’t have to dominate the entire night just to score some extra cash.

Riding a hot streak? Participate in Silver Legacy’s $1,500 Quarterly Tournaments for a chance to win even more.

Guests can come early and enjoy Rock and Roll Bingo with the DJs from a local radio station from 8 to 10 p.m. Drink specials will keep the party going all night long, including $5 Bud Light pitchers and $2.50 for all other Budweiser products.

Also, Silver Legacy will host the third annual Biggest Little Flair Bartender Competition at Rum Bullions Island Bar on Feb. 22-23.

Guests can see the best flair bartenders from around the world compete for thousands of dollars in cash prizes and the title of Biggest Little Flair Bartender in the World from the Flair Bartending Association.

The annual Reno competition is a Level Five stop on the Flair Bartending Association Pro Tour.  Qualifying rounds begin February 22 at 3 p.m. and finals begin February 23 at 9 p.m. at Rum Bullions. The public is encouraged to come out and see these pros flaunt their finest flair.

Each bartender has four minutes to impress judges with tricks based on several categories: difficulty, smoothness, variety, originality, balance, presence, composure and overall entertainment. The bartenders scoring highest will move on to the finals, where each gets six minutes of show time to work with. A total of $3,000 in cash will be awarded to the top five competitors.
