Biggest Little Tailgate Party

By  | 

Silver Legacy Resort Casino is bringing back the popular Biggest Little Tailgate Party on January 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Virginia Street.

Mingle with former professional football players and try your chance in numerous contests including a $1 MILLION Football Toss where one lucky “fan” will win a chance to throw the ball for the $1 Million prize. In addition a $5 Beer Pong Olympics will take place with attendees vying for the crown, with all proceeds going to Pop Warner Little Scholars Program.

The giant tailgate party will include a “You Be The Judge” Chili Cook-off. Judge’s tasting ballots will be available for $5 and include 6-ounce tasters of chili from each sponsor property and a raffle ticket for the $1 Million Football Toss. Individual 12-ounce bowls of chili will also be available for purchase at a cost of $3 each. Attendees can vote by purchasing a Tasting Pass and filling out the ballot for your favorite chili recipe.

If luck isn’t on your side for the $1 Million Football Toss you can try your chance in the Charity Toss by making a donation from $1 to $20 with the proceeds going to Pop Warner Little Scholars Program. If you make the throw you will be awarded gaming chips in the amount of 10 times your original bet.

Come out and cheer on your favorite local media personality as they compete in the Media Challenge. Each media participant will be granted three throws from a starting distance of 20 yards. If the event should end in a tie, the sudden death round will move forward five yards and an additional five yards for every round thereafter. The winner receives a fantastic prize package, a trophy and “bragging rights” for one year!

Also returning for the party will be Joe Cahn, the self-proclaimed "Commissioner of Tailgating." He is the world's only professional tailgater and he tailgates at football stadiums around the country, has visited hundreds of cities and seen thousands of fans - all while eating his way through over 500 tailgate parties.

Additional contests include “Super Fan 2008,” “Craziest Fan” and cheerleading and marching band exhibitions. Finally, come see the University of Nevada, Reno cheerleaders and Alphie the mascot as they greet the crowd from 11:30 a.m. to Noon. Budweiser will also be on hand with their Bud Girls serving up drinks and swag!

Admission is free, so come on down, rain, snow or shine, and join us for the ultimate tailgate party! For more information or to purchase a tailgate spot for $50 please visit for an application or call 1-800-215-7721 or 775-325-7411.
