Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken’s Smorgasbird has Returned, and It’s Making a BIG Entrance for a Good Cause

 

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken’s Smorgasbird has Returned, and It’s Making a BIG Entrance for a Good Cause

July’s Triple Decker Sandwich Features Fried Chicken Loaded with Pineapple, Bacon, Cheese, French Fries & BBQ Pulled Chicken

Grab a fork, knife and a lot of napkins because the Smorgasbird is here and it’s just as wild as last year. The giant sandwich is back once again starting July 1 and will be served at both Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken locations in Las Vegas for a limited time. As in previous years, $5 of proceeds from each sandwich will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. Plus, lucky guests will also have a chance to receive exclusive “Smorgasbird” swag, available while supplies last.

The Smorgasbird lives up to its name by combining two classic Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken cutlets, caramelized pineapple, shredded lettuce, tomato, crunchy pickled cucumbers, Blue Ribbon special sauce, and, finally, Game Day Fries (fries with BBQ pulled chicken, aged cheddar, sour cream, smoked bacon, and pickled peppers) – all stuffed between two toasted buns.

Additionally, the colossal sandwich will be tempting guests with the opportunity to try the “Smorgasbird Challenge,” which dares them to devour the massive sandwich in under five minutes, share proof of their attempt on social media by tagging @BlueRibbonFC, #Smorgasbird, and finally, to invite one friend to take on the challenge themselves. All qualifying participants are entered in a contest to win a free Hail Mary Platter(25 wings, 25 chicken tenders, & one side) from Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken.

Guests can dine out for a cause with the return of the ultimate Smorgasbird sandwich. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society mobilizes people and resources so that everyone affected by multiple sclerosis can live their best lives and stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.

The Smorgasbird will be available throughout July 31 for $16 at both Las Vegas locations including Grand Bazaar and Downtown Summerlin.

 

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken at Downtown Summerlin is located at 1770 Festival Plaza Drive – Suite 200, Las Vegas, NV 89135 and is open Sun – Thurs from 11am – 9pm and Fri – Sat from 11am – 10pm.

Three Square Food Bank Works to Bag Childhood Hunger with ‘Fashion For Three Square’

Three Square Food Bank Works to Bag Childhood Hunger with ‘Fashion For Three Square’
Seventh annual event transformed Three Square headquarters into elegant social gathering in support of longstanding charitable campaign to benefit children in need


On Saturday, May 5, “Fashion for Three Square,” a special event underwritten by the Bennett Family Foundation, transformed Three Square’s north campus, which ordinarily houses operations, volunteering, food rescue, warehousing and distribution, into a grand party venue. The gathering featured elegant décor, fashion models, entertainment and local culinary tastes as attendees supported the Bag Childhood Hunger campaign, now in its seventh year.

The event featured fashions by Etro, presented by Neiman Marcus, along with food provided by top Las Vegas restaurants including: Blue Ribbon, STK, Buddy V’s Ristorante, La Strega, Libertine Social and Carnevino. In addition, Three Square’s executive chef John Hilton and his team prepared live dishes at the food bank’s demonstration kitchen & atrium. One of Three Square’s storage coolers was converted into an ice bar, featuring Artisanal Foods and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. MGM Resorts International provided an array of sweet treats. The event also welcomed entertainment from Las Vegas-based soul singer Jessica Manalo; Strip headliners The Australian Bee Gees, who performed hits from one of the most successful acts in musical history, the Bee Gees; and students from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts.

Contributions made to Three Square’s Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign, which continues through May 31, will be used right here in Southern Nevada and will have double the impact thanks to a generous $500,000 contribution to match gifts toward the food bank’s goal to raise $2 million.

The Bag Childhood Hunger campaign supports one of the most vulnerable populations in Southern Nevada, children. Proper nutrition for children is critical as hunger can cause lasting physical and mental challenges. One in four children in Southern Nevada live in households that are food insecure. Additionally, more than 62 percent of children in Clark County schools are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs. That’s more than 203,000 students.

In its 10th year fighting hunger, Three Square is able to provide three meals for every dollar donated to the food bank. Thanks to the support of matching sponsors throughout this campaign, Three Square will be able to provide six meals for every dollar donated.

To make a donation to Bag Childhood Hunger and for further information about Three Square’s childhood nutrition programs, visit www.bagchildhunger.org or call 702.644.3663, ext. 334.

About Three Square Food Bank
This year marks Three Square’s 10th anniversary serving as Southern Nevada’s only food bank and largest hunger relief organization. The nonprofit offers wholesome, nutritious food to nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites that serve a wide range of Southern Nevadans. A national model project inspired by Founder Eric Hilton with a grant provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with businesses, nonprofit agencies, food distributors, higher education institutions, the Clark County School District, governmental entities, the media and thousands of volunteers to efficiently and effectively work together to serve those in our community struggling with hunger.

Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks.

DOUBLE JUMP THE CONCERT LINE AT BROOKLYN BOWL LAS VEGAS
AT THE LINQ

Guests Who Dine at Brooklyn Bowl’s Restaurant Can Now “Jump” to the Front of the Concert Line

 

In bowling, the term “double jump” means the bowler has jumped ahead of where he or she should be in the standard rotation. However, at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, Double Jump is a boon for guests who want to dine and then receive preferential access to the evening’s concert event.

Now available, the Double Jump program enables guests dining at its award-winning, Blue Ribbon restaurant to proceed immediately to the concert of the night before the general public.

Here is how it works: dine anywhere at Brooklyn Bowl and show the receipt to security to be allowed entry into the concert area ahead of the general public. That guest will “jump the line.” Reservations during concert nights are strongly recommended. Reservations can be made via vegas.brooklynbowl.com or by calling (702) 862-2695.

Brooklyn Bowl’s Blue Ribbon restaurant was created by brothers, chefs and restaurateurs, Bruce and Eric Bromberg. Expertly prepared by Executive Chef Dermot Driscoll, Brooklyn Bowl’s menu is a mix of comfort food and new twists on old favorites. Signature dishes include Egg Shooters with pickled peppers and olive oil mayo; Deep Fried Pickles with Blue Ribbon seasoning and chipotle ranch; a collection of French Bread Pizzas including The Theresa with butternut squash, mushrooms and roasted garlic; The Bowl Burger Deluxe with all of the fixin’s and fries; Mac & Cheese with baked crumbs and of course, its world-renowned Fried Chicken served with white bread and honey.

Brooklyn Bowl is open for dining every day starting at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

ABOUT BROOKLYN BOWL LAS VEGAS AT THE LINQ
Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is where locals and tourists go for a nightly eclectic blend of live music, 32 bowling lanes and five bars with an all-house made menu created and executed by brothers’ Bruce and Eric Bromberg’s Blue Ribbon Restaurants. When there is a live show, there can be more than 2,000 concertgoers enjoying live music programming from the general admission area, as well as the multimedia bowlers’ lounges adjacent to the lanes, or the private lounge boxes overlooking it all. Since opening in March 2014, notable performances include Elvis Costello & The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, Phil Lesh & Friends, Primus, O.A.R., Smashing Pumpkins and Jack White. Brooklyn Bowl is also located in Brooklyn and London, making Las Vegas its third location. Rolling Stone calls Brooklyn Bowl “one of the most incredible places on Earth” while USA Today says “Music lovers and food lovers finally have a spot to share the night: Brooklyn Bowl at The LINQ.” For additional information, including the most up-to-date show lineup, visit www.BrooklynBowl.com.
