Back by popular demand! Once again we fling open our doors and invite all comers to this no-cover all-ages birthday wing-ding. With the Crystal Hotel open, the fun covers two city blocks: Music in several rooms; comedy in Al's Den; property tours; kids fun; food and drink specials; tastings of our spirits, wine, cocktails and beer; and of course a special birthday brew, Johnny Flipflops Tropical Sour, will pour throughout the properties.
Make it a long weekend and get yourself a room at the Crystal Hotel!
And heads up, you Passport holders: We'll be offering a stamp for the "Crystal Ballroom Birthday Discovery Tour."
The party starts in the afternoon and will parade long into the night…
