Event is free and open to the public, and will feature menu favorites from Chickie’s & Pete’s, opening this summer
In anticipation of the grand opening of the first West Coast location of Chickie’s and Pete’s sports bar and crab house at SAHARA Las Vegas this summer, the resort is hosting a special Draft Day viewing party in the Sahara Theater, Thursday, April 29, complete with giveaways, drink specials and delectable bites. The viewing party is 21+, admission is free and doors will open at 4 p.m. with open seating on a first come, first served basis.
In addition to serving cheesesteak sandwiches ($8) and Crabfries ($4) from Chickie’s & Pete’s, the full menu from Northside Café & Chinese Kitchen will be available for guests to order from the new mobile ordering platform, Mr Yum. Drink specials include a lineup of $10 draft party cocktails, featuring the Swoop, There It Is! with Bacardi, fresh tiki sour and grenadine; the S.O.T.D.

Philadelphia-based Chickie’s & Pete’s is a favorite among both athletes and fans and is as popular for its unique sports bar experience as it is for its famous Crabfries and elevated bar cuisine. Named the best sports bar in North America by ESPN, signature menu items include Chickie’s and Pete’s Crabfeast and Lisa’s Blonde Lobster Pie pizza. Chickie’s and Pete’s will serve as the homebase of SAHARA’s William Hill sportsbook.
