St. Patrick’s Day Dinner & Show Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The following is a comprehensive list of answers to anticipated questions you may have for our dinner:
Are reservations still available if I know more who want to come?
The answer is maybe. Circus Circus gives us a few overs in our meals so your meal selections will be limited to what is available. You must pay in advance and you will be seated wherever there is space. Call Willie Puchert at 775-378-0931 ASAP

Where is the dinner being held again?
The dinner will be held downstairs in the Convention Area of Circus Circus Hotel Casino in Downtown Reno in the Mandalay Ballroom. You may use the escalator or take an elevator down. Our registration tables will be at the foot of the stairs. The escalators are located near the Southwest Corner of the Casino near the corner of Sierra & Fifth Streets.

Where should I park?
You may park in one of two parking garages. The North Parking Garage is located on 6th & Virginia St. and connects to the casino by skywalk. The West is located off Sierra St. and is accessible by the sky shuttle. Valet Parking on the ground floor is also accessible via Sierra Street at Sixth St.

Where should my ride drop me off/pick me up?
We suggest the Southwest Entrance of Circus Circus,which is located near the corner of Sierra & Fifth Streets. The escalators to the convention area are right near that entrance.

What happens if guests in my party that I have paid for show up before me? 
If that guest’s name is not specified, just have them mention who paid/or is paying for the dinner.

Tell me about the Whiskey Tasting:
We are grateful to Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits who have donated the following whiskey selections from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for us to sample:

  • Power’s Irish Whiskey
  • Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • Jameson Black Barrel
  • Jameson Caskmates IPA Ed.
  • Jameson Caskmates Stout Ed.
Tell me about the raffle:
We will have over $2000 in great raffle items including the prized whiskey selection, a genealogy kit, a dinner and hotel package, several great gift certificates and many great Irish related items. PLEASE NOTE: Cash and checks only accepted for raffle tickets.

Will there be merchandise? 
We have our commemorative “50th Anniversary” SADOE Pint Glasses among the merchandise we are selling, which includes our bears and tee-shirts

What if I want to stay the night?
Circus Circus is offering a special discount room rate. You can also call directly to their Reservation Department at 1-800-648-5010 and refer to group code SDE2019.

What if I paid for reservations but I can’t make it?
Unfortunately, all meal reservations at this point are non-refundable. SADOE must pay for every dinner ordered. You may choose to have someone go in your place or donate your meal. Call 775-378-0931 to discuss.

If you still have a question, call 775-378-0931. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday at our event. Thank you for your support of the Sons & Daughters of Erin!
