Peppermill Resort Spa Casino Goes Back in Time for 45th Anniversary
Property revisiting 1971 roots throughout the month of June

RENO, Nev. (June 13, 2016) In honor of its 45th anniversary this June, Peppermill Resort Spa Casino will be celebrating like it’s 1971 with throwback food and drink specials, vintage digital resort décor and a $45,000 Anniversary Giveaway.

“The Peppermill has been a local, family-owned business for 45 years now, and our success is entirely due to the locals and guests who choose to stay and play with us,” said Billy Paganetti, general manager of the Peppermill. “We’re excited to look back at where we came from over this month, and I’m looking forward to sharing the fun with our community.”

Specialty throwback drinks, such as the Sandhopper and Wallbanger ’16, will be available for just $6 throughout June at all Peppermill restaurant bars. The Sandhopper puts a Reno twist on the classic cocktail by combining Kringle Cream, Wondermint and house-made vanilla gelato, while the Wallbanger ’16 mixes Deep Eddy peach vodka and orange juice with a Galliano float and house-made cherry to modernize the 1970s version of a Harvey Wallbanger.

From June 20-24, Café Milano – the original 24-hour coffee shop where the Peppermill began – will offer a throwback menu featuring items originally on the 1971 menu for only $7.95 per entree. Dishes include:

• Arco Sandwich – Shrimp and Louie dressing with avocado and tomato served on marble swirl rye bread
• Arco Salad – Shrimp and Louie dressing with avocado, tomato and egg on a bed of mixed greens
• Sunburst Sandwich – Sliced turkey with melted jack and cheddar cheeses, bacon bits, tomato, avocado and Thousand Island dressing served on griddled marble swirl rye bread
• Tropical Sandwich – Sliced turkey with cheddar cheese, strawberries, lettuce and mayo on white bread
• Ham and Swiss Croissant – Griddled ham and Swiss cheese nestled in a warm croissant and topped with hollandaise sauce

Guests and locals will also want to participate in the Peppermill’s $45,000 Anniversary Giveaway Weekend, June 24 – 26, where you could win a share of $45,000 in cash and Free Play prizes. Passport Rewards players club members will receive one drawing ticket for every Tier Point earned over the weekend.

Throughout the resort, the Peppermill’s digital screens will feature before and after photos of the property expansions and renovations over the years as well. For guests who are unable to join the celebration in Reno, the Peppermill’s social media team will be posting throwback photos throughout June – including 45 Peppermill facts posted on their blog – and holding online giveaways.

Peppermill Resort Spa Casino originated as the Peppermill Coffee Shop back in 1971, and has since evolved into a two-million-square-foot resort, hotel, casino and spa. Placing an emphasis on sustainability and innovation, the Peppermill continues to set the example for luxury and environmental stewardship among properties worldwide. The family-owned resort remains committed to reinvesting in the resort, with renovations taking place across the property this year.

The spectacularly redesigned EDGE Nightclub opened to the public in March 2016, combining 1920s style with 2020 technology. The nightlife experience now includes 440 square feet of LED panels, custom-made damask wallpaper, original artwork from local artists and handcrafted crystal chandeliers. Additional 2016 projects include remodeling the Oceano restaurant, installation of six of the Peppermill’s signature LED video walls and continuing a major initiative started in 2014 to install energy-recovery ventilators and improve internal air quality throughout the property.
