The Plaza Hotel & Casino will host its annual Independence Day party on Thursday, July 4 at its rooftop pool.

All weekend long, the pool’s cocktail bar will offer drink specials, including Jell-O shots (one for $3 or three for $5) and a selection of frozen and specialty cocktails, such as the festive Firework cocktail, a red, white & blue mix of Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada Rum and Blueberry Lemonade Vodka ($12).

Guests will also enjoy made-to-order poolside fare from the Pool at the Plaza Food Truck, including its popular burgers (double cheeseburger and the “Impossible Burger”), crispy chicken sandwich, BLT wrap, street tacos, chicken tenders and wings, nachos, and fresh salads.

On Friday, July 5, guests can enjoy a relaxing day at the pool with a free inflatable flamingo drink holder. On Saturday, July 6, the fun continues with the Plaza’s Beer Olympics.
