SugarHouse Casino Hosts Free “Draft House” Party

Redfoo, 97.5 The Fanatic, football celebrities, contests and more at
Philly’s Casino

PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SugarHouse is being transformed into a football “Draft House” when the
NFL lands in Philadelphia. In partnership with 97.5 The Fanatic, the
free draft headquarters April 27—29 will offer continuous draft coverage
at Philly’s casino.

Featuring big-screen televisions, The Refinery restaurant, bar and patio
will be turned into a one-of-a-kind sports bar. The Fanatic will
broadcast live from SugarHouse each night of the draft, capturing
instant reactions when Philadelphia’s hometown team makes its first pick.

The Draft House launches on Thursday, April 27, offering fans three days
of celebrity meet-and-greets, including Pro Football Hall of Famer
Lawrence Taylor at the kickoff party. The weekend will also feature live
deejays, football trivia and a showcase of professional and collegiate
sports memorabilia powered by Sports Vault.

Fans will enjoy their favorite tailgate games, contests, live
entertainment, bar and drink specials, including $2 Miller Lite draft
beers, and more. Gaming promotions include a sports memorabilia
sweepstakes for blackjack and roulette players.

“The SugarHouse Draft House is the ultimate fan experience,” said Wendy
Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “It will be a three-day
football party, with plenty of entertainment and activities for guests
to enjoy!”

The Draft House will feature two ticketed events, both free, on April 28
in The Event Center. A roundtable featuring NFL Super Bowl-winning
players Joe Theismann, Phil Simms and Jay Novacek will be joined by
former Philadelphia Eagles running back Keith Byars. Television
personality Beasley Reece will moderate the Eastern division rivalry

Later that night, Grammy®-nominated singer Redfoo and The
Party Rock Crew will take the draft hype to a new level with a free
concert; doors open at 10 p.m. Known to the world as half of the
