The Wedge Salad Challenge


Not  your typical wedge

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is accustomed to competition on the gaming floor but this week the action was centered around the kitchen. The focus was on something crispy, crunchy and a steakhouse staple, known as the Wedge Salad.

The Wedge Salad Challenge was the brainchild of Cabazon Band of Mission Indians Chairman David Roosevelt, who said he wanted to use this competition as a way to find a salad that would really welcome diners to the Bistro at Fantasy Springs. 


 Wow! What a wedge!

The challenge was open to all culinary employees at the casino. From the Executive Sous Chef, to line cooks in most of the restaurants, 23 employees submitted their wedge salad creations for judging. Fantasy Springs Executive Chef, Freddy Rieger said, “This competition creates team building and motivation. It incites creativity and ownership.”

The business committee, which includes Chairman Roosevelt, judged the salads on presentation and taste. 
Judging commences

The winning salads will be placed on the menu at POM or Bistro for customers to enjoy.

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is certainly ready for its close-up


 The Cast of "Blowing Vegas Off The Map"
Over the last two weeks, the entire casino resort property has become part of a major movie shoot for the SYFY Channel. The property has been transformed into not one but several different hotels on the Las Vegas Strip.
Barry Bostwick on set
Public Relations manager, Anndee Laskoe says, “With the magic of Hollywood, Fantasy Springs has played the part of a Western themed hotel complete with cacti and a giant buffalo, the well known Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino and of course the fictional, luxe, Egyptian themed Isis Hotel and Casino where all the trouble goes down.”

It’s at the Isis hotel during a Spring Break pool party, where the plot thickens, swift winds blow through and mythical creatures are introduced.  “It’s a SYFY movie, so you know what happens next.” Laskoe, says. 

The movie, titled “Blowing Vegas off the Map,” stars Frankie Muniz of Malcolm in the Middle fame and Barry Bostwick, known for playing Brad Majors in the 1975 cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
 
Frankie Muniz getting ready for his scene
Producer Keith Melton says the movie will come complete with plenty of computer generated special effects. Those will be added in by a Beijing-based company and Industrial Light & Magic, the visual effects icon founded by Lucasfilm and George Lucas.
 
At some point in the movie a computer generated plane will crash onto the craps table on the gaming floor. The 18th hole waterfall at Eagle Falls Golf Course will be a tiger habitat and the area outside The Fresh Grill Buffet, will be a museum compete with priceless Egyptian relics.

A replica of the Paris Hotel and Casino’s Eiffel tower observation deck is currently being constructed inside the Fantasy Special Events Center for one of the movies’ final scenes. “We have a lot of amazing concerts in that venue but this is certainly a first for us here at Fantasy Springs.” Laskoe says.

You can catch a glimpse of Blowing Vegas off the Map next spring when it is set to air on the SYFY Channel. Fantasy Springs is happy to sign autographs, just come visit the hotel and casino in person and do lunch.
