In honor of National Shrimp Day, Golden Gate Hotel & Casino is rolling back the price of its famous shrimp cocktail to just 50 cents – the price it was in 1959 when the property introduced the “Original Shrimp Cocktail” to Las Vegas. From 2 – 5 p.m. on Friday, May 10, guests are invited to stop by Du-par’s Restaurant to enjoy the seafood snack at the special celebratory price.*
Golden Gate founding partner Italo Ghelfi was inspired to bring the San Francisco staple to Sin City in the late 50s, starting a tradition spanning several decades and 40 million shrimp cocktails (that’s more than a billion individual shrimp!)
Golden Gate’s shrimp cocktail boasts a heap of ocean shrimp served in a classic “tulip” sundae glass, topped with a secret spicy cocktail sauce and garnished with a fresh lemon wedge. Staying true to tradition, the recently remodeled downtown property continues to serve it the same way and is proud to offer the “best tail in town!” A favorite among both locals and tourists, it is voted “Best Shrimp Cocktail” year after year.
*One shrimp cocktail per person. While supplies last.
