Celebrate Dad This Father’s Day With Dining, Gifts and Fun at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, June 16th, there’s no better time than now to start planning a great gift, dinner or night out to surprise that special Dad in your life.

Here are five great ways Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs can help you thank Dad.

The saying goes – “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” so indulge Dad in a meal he’ll remember, with Father’s Day dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Father’s Day specials at Ruth’s Chris Steak House include an 11oz filet mignon with a lobster cake and sherry cream sauce for $52.00, lamb chops with a blackberry demi glace for $45.00 and citrus marinated mako shark with grilled pineapple salsa for $32.00.

Buy Dad some accessories for his iPad at The Grove Media. He doesn’t have one? That’s ok; make all of his tech-savvy dreams come true with a new iPad 2 or iPad mini from the Apple specialists at The Grove Media store in Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.

Treat Dad to a night of Live Harness Racing (6:30 post-time) action with dinner and drinks at Pacer’s Clubhouse, Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs’ spacious restaurant offering panoramic views of the mountains and racetrack along with a variety of American-inspired classics on the menu.

Buy Dad a Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs Gift Card that he can use for dinner at Pearl Sushi Bar, Bar Louie or one of the ten casual or fine dining restaurants at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. He could also use it to buy some delicious wine at Crossing Vineyards Wine and Cheese Shop, spend a night out in Breakers or at one of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs’ other happening nightlife spots, try his luck on one of the over 2,300 state-of the-art slots and electronic table games on the gaming floor and more.

If Table Games are Dad’s pastime of choice, let him enjoy a night playing $5 tables on the gaming floor, including Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Poker and more. Father’s Day is a Sunday, so as part of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs Sunsational Sundays Hot Summer Fun promotion, Dad can use his Player’s Club card to automatically earn entries to win various gifts and prizes just by playing his favorite table game or slot machine from 8:00am to 10:00pm.

As an added bonus for Father’s Day only at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs’ own bakery and coffee shop, Betty & Joe’s, Fathers can energize themselves with ½ off a large specialty drink with their purchase of any pastry.
