Las Vegas, NV - The Tropicana Las Vegas introduces its newest pool party concept, 'Mint Mondays,' complete with food, fun and entertainment every Monday from noon to 11 p.m. beginning June 23, 2008.

"We are referring to our pool party as 'Mint Mondays' to incorporate the cool, refreshing atmosphere that will be provided to our guests every Monday," says Tropicana representative Penny Baratta, Casino General Manager. "We want them to relax and enjoy themselves while visiting our tropical oasis."

Guests of 'Mint Mondays' will be entertained throughout the afternoon and evening. A DJ and band will rotate throughout the evening with the DJ blasting the tunes from noon until 7 p.m. and the band taking the poolside stage from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. All bands appearing at 'Mint Mondays' are published artists and will cover such music genres as Caribbean, Cajun, Latin and other music styles. The DJ will wrap-up the evening with more music hits.

Guests can participate in an array of activities during the pool party. Pool volleyball, swimming, dancing, and even gaming, will be available. Tropicana's legendary swim-up blackjack tables, seating a total of 14 players, will be open for the duration of the party.

A variety of food and drinks will be offered on 'Mint Mondays.' Three barbecue grills will be posted throughout the pool deck serving menu items such as Jerk Chicken Breast, BBQ Brisket Sandwiches, Broiled Italian Sausage, Fish Tacos and Carne Asada. Two portable bars, in addition to the permanent Coconut Grove Bar and Swim-up Bar, will serve up the cocktails. In continuing the theme of the party, Mint flavored beverages will be offered and include Wild Mint Julep's, Mojito's, Peachy Mint Cooler's and more. The traditional tropical blended daiquiris and margaritas will also be available as both an alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage.

"The Tropicana is the place to be every Monday during the hot Las Vegas summer," says Tropicana representative John Sevilla, Hotel General Manager. "Great food, delicious drinks and live, talented entertainment will all be enjoyed in our relaxing, beautiful and cool pool atmosphere."

Voted one of the best swimming pools in Las Vegas by the Travel Channel, the amenities and experience offered will be even more enhanced during 'Mint Mondays.'
