A Hollywood Night Getting Shuttled Away – PLUS $50 GIVEAWAY!

One of the coolest things about St. Louis is that some of the best talent come through to perform. The venues all around the area are all great for a show, however one stands outside the rest, because well it is outside. Hollywood Casino Amphitheater hosts some of the best. Especially when it’s time to step away from the kids for a night out and hang out with your best friend.

What makes Hollywood the best around is for a multitude of reasons, too many to list, but really it’s just a lot of fun. When I am heading out to a show with my friends and family we like to grab seat tickets. That way we have a nice spot to sit during the headliners, but we also like to venture out into the vast lawn area and hang out in the huge crowd. Have a few drinks with friends while soaking up those tunes.

Recently, I got to check out the REO Speedwagon and Chicago show courtesy of Hollywood Casino. The show was rocking and the experience was even better! Our kid free night out started out at Hollywood Casino with a delicious dinner at 99 Hops House, a few drinks and then a quick shuttled drive over to the show. Hollywood Casino has a shuttle service that can drive you to the show curbside! And then drive you back when you’re ready to leave! How cool is that?

It is very cool! As a dad I can be a little crazy but I can’t lie, I am also a fairly responsible dad so there always needs to be a designated driver. This time it was Hollywood Casino got to be the DD! The shuttle was quick, courteous, and ready to take us back to Hollywood Casino without much of a wait. So if you’re like me and you wanna grab some dinner before hand, you totally can at somewhere like 99 Hops House. Try out some of their awesome craft beers, or another one of the popular favorites. Eat some food, get some drinks, hop on the shuttle and enjoy the show. That is exactly what we did. It’s a perfect opportunity to have an easy and worry-free night out, whether it is with friends, family, or that special someone, you are sure to have a blast with Hollywood Casino taking care of ya.

After the show we came back to Hollywood Casino, we weren’t giving up the rest of our kid free night, so we hit up the bar and casino for the remainder of the night. Once we hit the big jackpot of 17 cents we decided to call it a night and grab a room in the hotel. Convenience at its best!

So the next show at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater you see, consider making the most out of your night and using the shuttle service at the casino and grabbing some food at a very tasty 99 Hops House while you’re there!

$50 99 Hops House Giveaway!!!
