Where to go with the gang in October!

Published on October 5 2017

Are you looking for a fun fall evening out with your best buddies? Do you line dance to Shania Twain and dream of knocking back the whisky with Luke Brian? Dust off your ten-gallon hat and put on your checked shirt: the Casino du Lac-Leamy has gone country!

Whisky, the water of life

Venturing well beyond shooters and “on the rocks,” the Casino du Lac-Leamy has created three whisky-based signature cocktails to get your evening off to a good start.

After tasting these creatively named concoctions—the Bull Kick, the Honey Trap, and (my personal favourite) the Sugar Daddy—you’ll be up and line dancing in no time.

I’m really struggling here to keep from making a bad joke about the Sugar Daddy. It’s way too obvious. 😬

Here’s Pascale, from Énergie 104.1 FM. She was much better at taming the beast than I was!

Saddle up, cowboy!

This is where the fun begins. Who among your gang will hang onto the mechanical bull the longest? Place your bets!

When I tried it, the assembled crowd was amazed by my natural grace and agility (NOT!). I think I lasted about 29 seconds on the mechanical bull, and even then, my biggest challenge was climbing into the saddle. 😑

OK, be warned, for this part of the evening you’re going to want a (glass of) Sugar Daddy by your side. 😂 Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself.

At 8 p.m., settled at the bar, drink in hand, you can watch a performance by the Casino cowgirls. After the show, they come offstage to mingle with the crowd, and you can line dance right along with them. At last, it’s our turn to dance!

At 8:30 p.m., the Casino cowboys take the stage for a show featuring lots of abs and breakdancing! 😉

You’re probably asking yourselves, “What does breakdancing have to do with country?” I confess I have no idea, but after a few minutes you’ll find it really doesn’t matter.

Country at the Casino

I admit that on my way to the Casino I had a few reservations, but once I got there it didn’t take me long to buy into the country theme.

If you’re looking for a great place for a good time with friends, I highly recommend the Casino. From whisky cocktails to mechanical bull rides and line dancing, there’s fun for everyone!

But don’t wait too long! Country at the Casino runs until October 21, Thursdays starting at 6 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays starting at 8 p.m.

I’ll close with the expression I found myself yelling most often during my country night at the Casino: “YEEEE-HAAAAA, COWBOY!!”
