 As the buzz continues from last night’s electrifying performance by the Hollywood Vampires, the first of their national tour, Central New York’s premier destination resort announces an exciting summer of casino tournaments, cash and prize giveaways, nationally-televised sporting events, the opening of outdoor dining and nightlife venues and Exit 33’s annual Memorial Day Weekend celebration, Red, White & Brew Bar Crawl.

Still reeling from last night’s electrifying, sold-out performance by Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry of the Hollywood Vampires, Turning Stone announces a summer lineup of exciting, don’t-want-to-miss events, including Memorial Day celebrations, casino tournaments with hundred thousand dollar prizes, nationally-televised sporting events, the opening of outdoor dining and nightlife venues and more.

With this weekend’s official kick-off to summer, Turning Stone will celebrate Memorial Day with the opening of two outdoor dining and nightlife locations: TS Steakhouse Terrace and the Crescent Courtyard Bar and Lounge.  The award-winning resort casino will also host holiday themed cash and prize giveaways on the gaming floor and Exit 33’s annual Red, White & Brew Bar Crawl.

Later this summer in June, Turning Stone will once again shine a national spotlight on Central New York with two nationally-televised sporting events: SHOWTIME Championship Boxing on Saturday, June 11 and the PGA Professional Championship on the Golf Channel June 26-29.
