True, Ottawa is one of the coolest cities in the country. Not only is it the capital of Canada, which inherently makes it awesome, but we've got some pretty chill things to do.
Sure, we've got some internationally loved events and things to discover (like the Byward Market and the annual Canadian Tulip Festival), but we've also got our own fun spots to check out, like patios (looking at you, Cornerstone), restaurants, cafes, bars, parks, and a whole lot more!
But sometimes, it can feel like you've been in Ottawa so long that even our most bumping rooftop patio isn't as fun as it once was. Which is fine; it happens. But even when that mood strikes, Ottawa's got. Your. Back.
The Lac-Leamy Casino, literally right next door to Ottawa, is 100% the most fun space you can check out when you've somehow exhausted everything Ottawa's got to offer... and even when you haven't, to be honest!
Not only does this casino offer up quality spots to drink and eat (it's got three bars, guys!), games to play, and a club to club in, but the casino also happens to host tons of fun promotions and super cool theme nights.
And one incredibly fun theme happens to be going taking over the the Lac-Leamy Casino this September 11 - October 21.
Called Country at the Casino, this super fun theme will evoke everything sexy and fun about the wild, wild west. There'll be sexy cowgirl and cowboy choreography, free musical shows, mechanical bull roulette, and a whole lot of other incredibly awesome things for you to discover and enjoy!
In fact, here's a little taste of what the Country at the Casino is really all about...
Mechanical Bull Roulette
If your goal in life has always been to ride a mechanical bull (don't lie, you know it has been), then this is your perfect chance. Take your shot, ride the bull, and have a story to tell your friends for the whole rest of your life.
