Back to the Future party at Plaza Hotel and Casino

14 October 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Plaza Hotel and Casino, which served as the backdrop for Biff Tannen’s Pleasure Paradise Casino & Hotel in the 1980s blockbuster movie “Back to the Future II,” travels back to the ‘80s on Wed., Oct 21 to host a special Back to the Future party from 6 to 11 p.m. at Beer Garden. The party marks and celebrates the famed arrival date of Marty McFly and Doc Brown in the beginning of the movie.

As part of the celebration, guests can take their picture under the Plaza’s iconic dome next to a collection of DeLoreans, including replicas of Doc Brown’s truck and the Libyan Volkswagen bus. A replica DeLorean time machine will also be on display. “Marty McFly,” “Biff Tannen” and “Doc Brown” will also be on hand for photos with guests.

The Back to the Future Party at Beer Garden includes drink specials such as Biff’s Root Beer Beer Float and Doc’s Wake Up Juice (a Basil Hayden Bloody Mary) from 6 to 11 p.m. as well as a special costume party and contest starting at 8 p.m. Guests can come dressed in their best ‘80s outfits, and judging for the best costume occurs at 9 p.m. The guest with the best costume wins $500.

That day, much of the property will be transformed to embody the 1980s and the “Back to the Future” movies. Guests will enjoy popular ‘80s music all day long, and M3 Trio, a local ‘80s cover band will perform from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. in the Plaza’s Omaha Lounge on the casino floor. Also on the casino floor, the Plaza’s Party Pit Girls will be dressed in ‘80s outfits, and themed $10 match play coupons will be given to the first 250 guests who purchase a drink at Beer Garden or at the bar setup under the dome by the DeLoreans on display.

That evening, Oscar’s steakhouse offers a Time Machine Special that includes an all-beef, half pound burger on a brioche bun with Muenster cheese, tomato chutney, crispy onions, spicy pickles, arugula and smoked bacon.
