Oaklawn News

Hot Springs, Ark. (Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014) – Oaklawn will be in the holiday spirit throughout the month of December and the excitement will continue to build throughout the month as it gets closer to completing its $20 million expansion by early January. Guests are invited to come see the festive decorations throughout the gaming area.

Fittingly, Oaklawn rings in 2015 with a grand New Year’s Eve celebration complete with a prime-rib buffet in the Carousel Restaurant and $5,000 prize drawing throughout the night. Dinner will be served from 5 – 11 p.m. and will cost $22.95 for Winners Circle members and $26.95 for non-members. In addition, there will be live entertainment in the new Silks Bar and Grill.

Every Thursday during the month, Oaklawn presents the $12,000 Winning Wonderland Giveaway from 6-10 p.m. Winners will be called every 10 minutes.

Oaklawn’s Reel Tournaments continue in December. There will be the 2 Minute Drill Tournament on Sundays starting at 2 p.m. and the Mad Money Tournament on Tuesdays. Players just need to have earned the qualifying points to participate.

Lagniappe Restaurant offers Southern Fried Wednesdays from 5 – 10 p.m. with finger-licking Catfish or Fried Chicken. Guests can enjoy the best steak in Hot Springs or if they prefer, the catch of the day, every Friday from 5 – 10 p.m.  In addition, Silks Bar & Grill is now open 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. every day and is a great dining option for people looking for casual meal or a place to watch the big games.

Oaklawn’s live race meet opens Friday, Jan. 9 and reserved seats for the 2015 racing season are now on sale. Seats can be purchased Monday – Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. by calling 1-800-Oaklawn ext. 340.
