Westchester’s Casino – Empire City

Posted by editor on 08/24/17

Did you know that there’s a casino under 20 miles from your Castle apartment which has monthly events such as food truck mash-ups, a racetrack, restaurants and weekly contests on their Facebook page?


Their newest event is the first ever Wingfest on September 16th.  This is going to be one of the biggest fall events in Westchester County.  It’s definitely an event for foodies and will feature the best wings from around the region, along with live music, cold beer, contests and lots of giveaways.  Tickets are $55.00 which includes food and drinks for the night plus a $10.00 free play at the casino.  You never know, you could walk home with some extra cash! There will be over 20 vendors, so make sure to come hungry!  Some of our favorite restaurants that will be serving wings are: 6 Degrees of Separation Brewery, Saw Mill Tavern and Peach Lake Market & BBQ.


Empire City is the perfect place for a night out with friends or your partner.  We suggest heading to Nonna’s Trattoria if you like Italian or Dan Rooney’s Sports Pub if you prefer more pub fare before you hit the slots for the evening.  Although there is no hotel at the casino, splitting an Uber of Lyft is your best bet if you want to have some drinks since it’s only 15 miles away.
