EAST CHICAGO, Indiana -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Pinnacle Entertainment today announced the opening of Stadium Sports Bar & Grill at Ameristar East Chicago. The opening ceremony was action packed with Andre Dawson and Carlton Fisk, National Baseball Hall of Famers, throwing a ceremonial "first-pitch" and giving opening remarks along with Anthony Copeland, Mayor of East Chicago and Matt Schuffert, Ameristar East Chicago Vice President and General Manager.

"We are excited to introduce Stadium Sports Bar & Grill to the Northwest Indiana area as the premier destination to enjoy great food and watch all of your favorite sporting events while surrounded by the rich history of Chicagoland sports," stated Matt Schuffert, Vice President and General Manager of Ameristar East Chicago.

Stadium goes beyond the traditional sports bar cuisine with an all-star menu packed with fan favorites plus new creations such as our house-made chorizo, beer cheese soup, and tater tots with cheddar lager sauce.
