Lagasse's Stadium Is the Place to Be This Summer to Catch All the Exciting FIFA World Cup Action

The World's Largest Sporting Event Gets Underway at Lagasse's Stadium Starting June 11th

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) - If you can't make it to South Africa this summer for the 19th FIFA World Cup, then head to Lagasse's Stadium at The Palazzo Las Vegas and experience Sin City's best race and sports book that serves renowned Chef Emeril Lagasse's critically acclaimed kicked-up game-day eats. Starting June 11th, guests can tour the world at Lagasse's Stadium. Placing a wager on Italy? Try munching on Italian sausage arancini or stromboli while sipping on a frosty Peroni. Visiting from England? Enjoy Emeril's fish-and-chips with a rich Newcastle Brown Ale. Locals and other American fans will be able to pair Bud or Bud Light perfectly with Emeril's signature BAM'wich, a hearty and delicious prime steak sandwich.

"We are excited to introduce our menu of game-day favorites to hungry sports fans from around the world during the 2010 FIFA World Cup- one of the biggest sporting events of the year," said Lagasse's Stadium General Manager Marc Zakin. "Chef de Cuisine Vincent Chiyuto has created an incredible menu with all of Chef Emeril's bold flavors and a global twist. Paired with your favorite local or import beer, it's the ultimate place to dine while cheering on your country's team!"

Bets can always be placed at the Lagasse's Stadium Race and Sports Book, but if in-game wagering is of interest, Lagasse's Stadium offers the revolutionary pocketcasino. This amenity allows guests to place bets on the fly via in-game wagering; or play casino-style games such as Extra Odds Blackjack all from the comfort of their seat. 

"Our guests love the flexibility that pocketcasino offers them by allowing a sense of mobility and freedom before, during and after games," said Race and Sports Executive Director, Mark Goldman. "The action of FIFA World Cup only comes around every four years and soccer fans from around the world are fanatical about cheering for and betting on their teams. There is no better place in Las Vegas to do both than Lagasse's Stadium."

According to a recent story published by Reuters, soccer is so important to participating countries that 51% of fans polled would willingly give up food for a week to see their team win the title. Those fans clearly haven't seen the delicious World Cup menu at Lagasse's Stadium. For reservations, please call Lagasse's Stadium directly at 702.607.2665.
