Party at the Silverton! Hideous holiday sweaters encouraged.

Face it: you’ve been a victim of the ugly holiday sweater. This fashion assassin strikes multiple times this time of year and its work is everywhere: in Christmas-card photo shoots, at retirement-home gifting gatherings and on dutiful nieces and nephews, donning their “thoughtful” gifts from out-of-touch aunts crazy about crochet.

Fortunately, the Silverton knows that nothing really says happy holidays quite like a bedazzled Frosty the Snowman knitted into a bright-pink pullover. And so, on December 18, the casino-lodge presents its Hideous Holiday Sweater Party. There you can partake in an ugly sweater competition and an egg nog chugging contest. A night full of funny festivities is planned, as drink specials, beer pong and live-band karaoke complete the unsightly sweater celebration.
Reminiscent of a rustic lodge, this off-the-Strip casino offers something for everyone, including affordable rooms, an array of dining options and family friendly features.
Silverton Casino Hotel is decorated in earth tones, stone and wood, and accented with amber-tinted lighting. The 90,000-square-foot casino includes more than 30 tables games, 1,900 slots, a high-limit lounge, a newly renovated poker room and the Cantor Gaming Sports Book.
One of the resort's most unique features is its 117,000-gallon saltwater aquarium, which houses more than 4,000 sharks, stingrays and tropical fish — and an occasional mermaid. Just steps away from the aquatic wonderland is the flagship 165,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, with everything from hunting, boating, fishing and camping gear.
Surrounding the casino floor is a vast array of dining options, such as the upscale-steakhouse Twin Creeks or the unique Mexican restaurant Mi Casa Grill Cantina.
