Pedro's this week (May 6th, 2012)

Stan, the blue Stormtrooper!

This week we’re running 1/2 us NL Hold’em cash Poker games on Sunday and Monday at 7pm and as always, we’re buying the food and the drinks for cash game players.

Thursday night is Trivia at Pedro’s again, and Friday night (as always) features a food special and live music by Gino and the Shackshakers… Since it’s the last night at Pedro’s for our good friend Stan the Man from Belgium-land, also known at the Blue Stormtrooper – perhaps we should do some waffles!

We are currently planning on taking Wednesday night off from Poker this week. If something changes and we can’t stay away from the felt, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Also, congratulations to Drew Miller, the winner of the April High Hand Promotion. His qualifying hand of a 9 high straight flush has won him a brand new Acer Iconia Tab. We are now into our May High Hand Promotion where the highest hand will win a Kindle Fire tablet computer. The high hand to beat is currently a full house, Queens over Threes.

Also, we’re amping up the Bad Beat Jackpot this week to $5500. Quads beat qualifies you for the majority share of the jackpot.

We had such a good time last Friday night that we forgot to take pictures of Hugo’s great Paella… the Sangria went down that well!

Star Wars Themed Bon Voyage party for our UNC Willmington group

We are very sad to see our UNC Willmington teaching students leave this year. They have been a great group, and have done a ton of great stuff in the community. Kudos to Professors Dennis and Susan from bringing them again, and we can’t wait to meet the group next year!

We sent them off in style with a Star Wars themed costume Bon Voyage party with live music by Gino and the Shackshakers! What a blast, and some really creative costumes as well!

This week at Pedro's – April 15th (plus Pad Thai and Live Music!)

We had a KILLER time on Friday with Gino and the Shackshakers playing live and serving Cindy’s famous Pad Thai (chicken or shrimp with green curry). The guest’s loved it. Our favorite Swedes also made up a batch of a special Swedish brew – they called it the Swedish House Bomb… See some photos below…

This week we’ve got lots going on, including a special food night tonight (Sunday) – Free Range Fried Chicken with mashed potato, Chipotle mayo and Ratatouille. There will also be a 1/2 cash Poker game tonight in the Poker Room at 5:00 pm.

Monday and Wednesday nights starting at 7:00 pm will also feature cash Poker.

Thursday at 7:30 pm is Trivia Night and Friday once again features live music with Gino and the Shackshakers – stay tuned to see if there will be a Food Special on Friday night!

This week at Pedro's

It’s another busy week at Pedro’s – Easter Weekend is coming up rapidly, which means that the San Pedro Poker Open Championship is coming up quickly! (April 6th through 9th – see the invite on Facebook). In addition we’ve got some fun nights planned for the Bar, including a Lasagna Night on Friday, and of course live music Friday with Gino and the Shackshakers.

  • Monday @ 7: 1/2us NL Hold’em – As always, the minimum buy-in is $50us and the maximum is $200us and we provide the free food and drinks while you play.
  • Tuesday @ 7: 1/2us NL Hold’em – Minimum buy-in is $50us and the maximum is $200us and we provide the free food and drinks while you play.
  • Wednesday @ 7 – We will again be spreading a $110 double or nothing tournament at 7pm. This is a unique tournament that is a ton of fun to play. All you have to do is beat half of the other players and you get $200 in tournament entry chips which can be used to buy into any event at Pedro’s. For example, if we have 10 players, you only have to outlast 5 other players. Once the 5th person has been knocked out, the tournament is over and all remaining players receive $200 which you can use to buy into the SPPO Saturday event or to two $100 tournament events at Pedro’s. This is a very quick tournament and a quick way to double your money. I encourage everyone to come and give it a try. There is no late registration or reentry, so be sure to be on time.
