From bottomless drinks to eating with mermaids, enjoy all the property's festivities for the rest of July
In such a transient town as Las Vegas, standing the test of time is an incredible feat. Silverton Casino is celebrating 25 years of gaming and great eats — not to mention some particular aquatic pastimes that are a surefire kid-pleaser. In no particular order, here are 25 things to do at Silverton for its quarter-century celebration this July.
1. Order some “under the radar” items at Su Casa
Su Casa is the home of sushi fusion at Silverton. Seafood fans will enjoy classics like spicy tuna rolls and avant-garde options like tsunami fries and lychee panna cotta. Try the uni lobster fried rice for a heightened culinary experience.

Sundance Grill serves up its fair share of delights, and their “Strawberry Tall Cake” takes the cake — or center stage. Get it for just $2 during their anniversary promotion.
Fun fact: Silverton has served nearly 100,000 Strawberry Tall Cakes, and they’re still on the menu today.
