Lynyrd Skynyrd To Open Vegas Eatery

My favorite city on earth (and no, I don’t gamble: I’m just enamored with the atmosphere) continues to improve.

Coming to the Excalibur Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas will be the latest rock themed restaurant — Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer.

I’ve stayed at the Excalibur on a few occasions and admittedly I find it an odd choice for Skynyrd’s new joint – wouldn’t The Hard Rockbeen a no-brain er? – but I’ll be paying another visit regardless.

“As guests walk in they will immediately be transported to a setting reminiscent of Hell House, the ram-shackled structure in the backwoods of Jacksonville where the Skynyrd sound originated”, the band’s press release reads.

“The center of the action will be the concert stage featuring a variety of cover bands and musical acts, including special performances from the legendary band throughout the year. Each night the enthusiastic bar staff will get the house swinging and singing by hopping up on the bars and stage, leading spontaneous sing-alongs to mash ups of classic Skynyrd songs, such as ‘What’s Your Name’ and ‘Gimme Three Steps.'”

And the food?

Biscuits, gravy, ribs, brisket and pulled pork and southern side dishes such as okra and macaroni and cheese.

Looks like no more Pink Flamingo buffets for me.

The restaurant will also house a Skynyrd souvenir shop featuring “signature clothing, glassware and accessories.” Included will be vintage collectibles from the band’s past, including autographed guitars, exclusive group photos and original memorabilia.
