Defeat the meat and eat for free!

Emerald Resort & Casino’s restaurants High Stakes and Breeze have introduced a challenge to all meat lovers – finish a meal that includes a 2kg  T-bone steak within an hour, get the meal for free and a place on the Wall of Fame.

Brave diners visiting the Resort are invited to take on the Emerald steak challenge – a steak that is 10 times bigger than your average 200g serving.

“It’s not a challenge for the faint of heart,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “Enjoy this T-Bone with chips, onion rings, creamed spinach and crumbed mushrooms and a choice of a draught or milkshake.”

This gastronomic gauntlet costs R500.00, but then again it’s free if consumed within an hour.

Here are a few tips to assist in conquering the challenge: besides being juicer and tastier, make sure that the steak is rare/medium rare – cutting, chewing and swallowing is a lot easier. Cut the steak into small pieces and eat the steak first. Above all, enjoy the meal and remember that proper dining etiquette is still required – no eating with hands!

“This meal is huge and could bring a tear to the eye of even the biggest of meat lovers,” concludes Tanuja. “Are you up for the challenge? We dare you!”

Emerald Resort & Casino warms Boipatong and Sebokeng this Mandela Day

Emerald Resort & Casino’s team members were more than happy to brighten the communities of Boipatong and Sebokeng this Mandela Day.

A team of 50 enthusiastically painted the Boipatong Community hall and offices before cooking and feeding 600 community members. The team were welcomed and introduced to the community by NAFCOC President, Bongani Dlamini.  The Resort thanks the local ward councillors and SAPS for their support in the planning and assistance throughout the day.

Happily covered in paint, the team visited Nyakallong Home for the Disabled in Sebokeng, where they washed windows, planted vegetables and prepared a braai for the residents.  This week, Emerald Resort & Casino will return to repair the ceiling and paint the home’s roof and present clothing that has been donated.

“We’re so pleased to have made a small difference in these communities,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive for Emerald Resort & Casino. “We had an incredibly warm welcome from the residents of Boipatong and it was also extremely heart warming to see the unreserved way in which our team members rose to the challenge of spending time with and enriching the lives of our fellow South Africans.”

As a gesture of gratitude, Emerald team members were treated to a dance display from the children in the Boipatong community which the team thoroughly enjoyed.

“Although Mandela Day, and what it means to this rainbow nation, always has a special place in our hearts, we know that assisting others is an all year round endeavour,” says Tanuja. “As such we are consistently involved in other CSI projects, some of which include a Sanitary Towel campaign where Emerald Resort & Casino will be supplying 600 school girls with sanitary towels for a year.

We also work closely with local orphanages that are invited for a leisure day out at Aquadome and Animal World throughout the year,” she says.

Indoor Pool Party features DJ Speedsta this July at Emerald Resort & Casino

Last month’s inaugural Hot Beatz indoor pool party held at Emerald Resort & Casino’s popular water park Aquadome was such a resounding success that the Resort is hosting a second event on the 28th July.

“We were completely overwhelmed by the positive feedback received from our guests through social media and direct feedback that we’ve decided to make indoor pool parties at Aquadome a regular feature,” says Emerald Resort & Casino’s Marketing Executive, Tanuja Gangabishun.

“This month on the decks are DJs Speedsta, Classic Tank, Pepe, T-Skull, Soul Mo, Jozi the HipHopGuru, Costa Deep and a performance by Masedi.”

The transformation between daytime pool fun to night-time rocking party venue has to be seen to be believed. “A special VIP area with brilliant panoramic views of the Aquadome, which includes a private bar, is ideal for guests who want to party the night away with a higher vantage point,” she says.

VIP tickets are R250 per person while general entrance tickets are R150 each, available through Computicket.

Hot Beatz Party – uniquely successful

The inaugural Hot Beatz indoor pool party held at Emerald Resort & Casino’s popular  water park Aquadome with celebrity DJs Roger Goode; Twins on Decks; Classic Tank and friends was a huge success. The party attracted many local and Johannesburg based people, partying the night away in a unique environment.

“The party was a huge hit, everyone loved the refreshed Aquadome look, and DJs Roger Goode and Twins on Decks and co really ‘wowed’ the crowd,” says Emerald Resort & Casino’s Marketing Executive, Tanuja Gangabishun. “The incredible new features received such good feedback from media, party-goers and guests while event promoters loved the idea of using Aquadome for unique corporate and private functions.”

The transformation between daytime pool fun and children’s squeals of delight to night-time rocking party venue was incredible and can only be experienced. The distinctly tropical atmosphere at the climate controlled Aquadome being the perfect antidote to the cold winter Vaal evening as guests partied till the small hours of the morning.

Overheard during the party and comments on the Emerald Resort & Casino social media pages included, “so much fun was had”, “What a pool party! We didn’t feel any cold, thank you”, “when are you doing it again?”, “Its crazi lit”, “Yoh – it’s crazy too epic” and “it’s brilliant that we can hire out this the uber-cool venue, I now have a great idea for my next party”.

“Our vision to provide our guests with an innovative, safe and alternative party venue has really paid off. All of our accommodation was sold out on the night as visitors took the opportunity to stay over and enjoy a relaxing post party day.

I think that we have firmly placed Aquadome on the map as an event venue with a difference,” concludes Gangabishun. “We look forward to next month’s party. The guest DJ’s will be announced soon, but like Roger Goode and Twins on Decks, party-goers will not be disappointed.”
