Each October, National Pork Month is recognized to celebrate the hard-working profession of pork producers. October was originally chosen because it was usually the month hogs were marketed. Today, pork is the world's most consumed meat, so pork producers use this month to educate and inform consumers about the meat and their code of ethics used in the production of pork.
In addition to National Pork Month, over 20,000 pork producers, professionals and consumers take advantage of activities each year at the World Pork Expo, held at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. Located about two hours from the Isle Casino Hotel® Bettendorf, the World Pork Expo will be held from June 8 to June 10. The activities surrounding this event include seminars, product tours, demonstrations, contests, a golf tournament, and a music fest. The Expo is squealing with excitement!
To show our pride and support the meat producers, pork, and fans of pork, Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf is going whole hog with The Big Pigout! During National Pork Month, we're offering pork and BBQ specials all month. Of course, it wouldn't be a grand night at the casino without some promotional games and giveaways, so after pigging out, stroll on in and check out the fun.
The Big Pigout feasting specials include something for all taste buds, from Pecan Smoked Chicken Wings to Salted Caramel Bacon Cheesecake:
- Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf's very own Calypso's® Buffet has an open invitation throughout October for you to come in and get some heavenly barbeque. Over ten BBQ items are available with The Big Pigout celebration, including Peach BBQ Pork Loin, Honey Bourbon Ham, BBQ Beef Short Ribs, Smoked Beef Brisket and much more. It isn't a down-home barbeque without adding corn bread, mac and cheese and a choice of one or all of the Isle's epic sauces.
- For those who want to live a little higher on the hog, Farraddays'® Restaurant obliges hungry partakers in a BBQ Smorgasbord. There's no sense in visiting without adding a weekly free bar appetizer and taking advantage of our drink specials.
- No need to worry if you're in a hurry — Tradewinds Marketplace® will serve up fries and a Coca-Cola Freestyle combo with the choice of a Pulled Pork Philly sandwich, BBQ Beef Brisket or the Double Trouble Carnitas Burger.
