20th Birthday Fireworks Celebration

The first time fireworks were shot off a building in Downtown Reno, were off the top of the Silver Legacy to commemorate the grand opening. Relive that moment with a special fireworks show on July 25 at approximately 9 p.m.

Birthday Entertainment

Silver Legacy made its shining big screen debut in the hit 1996 film "Kingpin," starring Woody Harrelson and Bill Murray. Check out the stellar lineup of entertainment happening in July:

  • Lisa Lampanelli, July 11
  • Lyle Lovett & His Large Band, July 17
  • Superhero Crawl, July 18
  • Laugh Factory Grand Opening with Jamie Kennedy, July 24
  • Kenny Rogers, July 31

Win Big Birthday Bucks

Did you know? If all the decks of cards Silver Legacy used for table games in 2014 were stacked, they would equal the height of Silver Legacy's hotel 23 times over.

  • $20,000 Daily Slot Tournament, July 5-24
  • $25,000 20th Birthday Slot Tournament, July 24-26
  • $30,000 Blackjack Tournament, July 31 – Aug. 2

Birthday (Cup)Cakes and More

Silver Legacy has used 14,716,800 eggs since 1995. If you laid the combination of those eggs side by side starting at Silver Legacy's front steps, they would stretch all the way to Portland.

Now through July 24, Silver Legacy will offer the following food and beverage specials:

  • Tournedos Rossini at Sterling's Seafood Steakhouse: medallions of beef, Foie Gras, brioche croutons and truffles with whipped potatoes, fresh vegetables and perigourdine sauce for $38
  • BBQ Beef Ribs at Café Central: a generous serving of our BBQ ribs, corn on the cob, cole slaw, and a baked potato for $8.25

And what would a birthday be without some cake – or cupcakes, at least! Special 20th Birthday mint chocolate or strawberry vanilla cupcakes will be available for $2.75, but on July 28, they will be absolutely free with the purchase of an entrée at Café Central or Pearl Oyster Bar and Grill.

To honor Silver Legacy's platinum anniversary, the Reno Gazette Journal will publish a special commemorative insert in their daily paper on Sunday, July 12. Want to know a few more fun facts about Silver Legacy? Check out 20 Fun Facts for Silver Legacy's 20th Birthday.
