In general, casinos are good places to find bargain meals, upscale dining and price points in between - all in one spot.
With that in mind, you might explore the dining specials offered by nearby Red Hawk Casino. Added entrees (leg of lamb, roasted duck, prime rib), prix fixe menus (squab, scallops) and other specials will be offered on Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
All five of Red Hawk's restaurants will participate - Henry's Steakhouse, Pearl Asian Cuisine, Koto Grille, Waterfall Buffet and Two Rivers Cafe.
The casino is off Highway 50 at Exit 40. For details, menus, prices and more information: (888) 573-3495, www.redhawkcasino.com.
