LA’s Golden Bird Chicken Flocks to Vegas
🍴 🍗 😋 A new food haven has opened in Las Vegas, Golden Bird Chicken. This new restaurant serves “thick, savory” fried chicken that is “ridiculously juicy,” say Las Vegas Weekly, with roots originally from Detroit. The source says that in the 1950s the food joint expanded into multiple locations including our neighbor, LA. The featured photos of the crispy chicken, soft rolls and corn on the cob are mouth watering.
With summer rolling into Sin City, there’s nothing quite like diving into a fingerlicking good plate of fried chicken. Visit their new spot on 3244 E. Desert Inn Road. They are open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Watch this TikTok foodie, Misohungry, show us a glimpse of Golden Bird Chicken’s LA location to get a glimpse of what we now have in Las Vegas. It’s her last stop in the video so be sure to watch it until the end.
Bet at Circa for the Ultimate Sports Jackpot
🏈 🏅 💰 The Las Vegas Sun says that Circa Resort & Casino owner, Derek Stevens announced that they are increasing their sports winnings for its two popular National Football League (NFL) contests, Circa Millions III and Circa Survivor, for prizes totaling $10 million.
THE WAIT IS OVER! 🏈🏆🙌— Circa Sports (@CircaSports) May 27, 2021
Here are @DerekJStevens @MikePalmCirca and @JeffreyBenson12 with our #CircaSportsMillion and #CircaSurvivor football contest details including $10 MILLION in guaranteed prizes!
To enter the Circa Millions contest it will cost participants $1,000 “with 100% of fees slated to go back to contestants,” according to the article. To play, sports bettors are required to pick five games against the spread for each week of the NFL season. The contest guarantees $4 million dollars in payouts and $1 million more than last season.
For those interested in entering the Circa Survivor contest, this also costs $1000 to play and has a total $6 million dollar payout, but requires every player to pick one team each week to win and the same team cannot be chosen more than once, says The Las Vegas Sun. Place your bets and goodluck! Maybe if you win, you can put it towards buying Agassi’s dreamy home.
