The Year of the Snake is upon us (it arrived last weekend), and Northern California gambling establishments are offering a host of Lunar New Year promotions throughout the month. While many of these promotions are gaming-only, some involve food as well.
Not surprisingly, many also revolve around the number 8, believed to bring good luck in Chinese culture because the word for it sounds similar to the Chinese word for “wealth.”
The party at Cache Creek Casino Resort in Brooks (Yolo County) continues through Monday. Here, through the Year of Fortune promo, members of the Cache Club players’ card program have chances to win $888 in bonus play during hourly drawings between 2 and 10 p.m. every day. They also can win $2,500 at five daily cash drawings Saturday through Monday. Winners have 10 minutes to claim their prizes.
At Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln (Placer County), the Red Lantern restaurant is offering a special Year of the Snake menu through Tuesday. Among the highlights: dancing crab ($25), Fu-Jin fried rice ($20) and lobster e-mein ($80).
