The fun begins Dec. 1 with a series of concerts, promotions and plenty of BBQ leading up to the Dec. 8 grand opening of Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer located in the Excalibur Hotel on Las Vegas’ famed Strip. The grand opening celebration also kicks off the first day of this year’s National Finals Rodeo.
The restaurant’s Dec. 8 opening day festivities start off with an “Eat ‘N’ Greet” luncheon with the band alongside Jack Daniel’s master distiller Jeff Arnett. Capping the grand opening will be an intimate evening performance by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
“With Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer, we wanted to create the kind of place that we’d like to hang out at,” Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Johnny Van Zant said in a statement. “With Southern-style barbecue and great music, this will be the perfect spot for rock and barbecue fans to kick back and have a great time in Vegas.”
The onsale launches Friday at 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time with concert tickets priced at $300. If you opt for the package bundling the Eat ‘N’ Greet with the concert, the price is $750 and includes perks such as a limited edition single-barrel bottle of Jack Daniel's topped with a commemorative bronze bottle-necked autographed by master distiller Arnett and Lynyard Skynyrd bandmembers. In case you haven’t guessed, this is a 21-and-over event.
A portion of sales from both events will go to the Lynyrd Skynyrd Foundation which will make donations to the Epicurean Charitable Foundation of Las Vegas and Nevada Children’s Medical Center. Visit LynyrdSkynyrd.com for more information.
