PHILADELPHIA--()--SugarHouse is being transformed into a football “Draft House” when the NFL lands in Philadelphia. In partnership with 97.5 The Fanatic, the free draft headquarters April 27—29 will offer continuous draft coverage at Philly’s casino.

Featuring big-screen televisions, The Refinery restaurant, bar and patio will be turned into a one-of-a-kind sports bar. The Fanatic will broadcast live from SugarHouse each night of the draft, capturing instant reactions when Philadelphia’s hometown team makes its first pick.

The Draft House launches on Thursday, April 27, offering fans three days of celebrity meet-and-greets, including Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor at the kickoff party. The weekend will also feature live deejays, football trivia and a showcase of professional and collegiate sports memorabilia powered by Sports Vault.

Fans will enjoy their favorite tailgate games, contests, live entertainment, bar and drink specials, including $2 Miller Lite draft beers, and more. Gaming promotions include a sports memorabilia sweepstakes for blackjack and roulette players.

“The SugarHouse Draft House is the ultimate fan experience,” said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “It will be a three-day football party, with plenty of entertainment and activities for guests to enjoy!”

The Draft House will feature two ticketed events, both free, on April 28 in The Event Center. A roundtable featuring NFL Super Bowl-winning players Joe Theismann, Phil Simms and Jay Novacek will be joined by former Philadelphia Eagles running back Keith Byars. Television personality Beasley Reece will moderate the Eastern division rivalry conversation.

Later that night, Grammy®-nominated singer Redfoo and The Party Rock Crew will take the draft hype to a new level with a free concert; doors open at 10 p.m. Known to the world as half of the electronic pop-rock duo LMFAO, Redfoo burst onto the music scene with the chart-topping hits “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy and I Know It.”

Tickets for Redfoo and the roundtable can be reserved at www.phillydrafthouse.com beginning Tuesday, April 25, at 10 a.m.

For football fans who want to check out the action on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, SugarHouse is providing a free shuttle to The Fanatic’s Draft Village at the Parkway. The shuttle runs April 27 (4 p.m.—midnight) and April 28—29 (noon—midnight), leaving every hour, on the hour. Parking is always free at SugarHouse Casino.

To kick off draft week at SugarHouse, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter joins The Fanatic’s Harry Mayes on Tuesday, April 25, at The Refinery. Schefter and Mayes will host a Q&A session 5—7 p.m., followed by a special autograph and photo opportunity for fans.
