Another day downtown, another hungry athlete! This time, it was the talented 21-year-old forward of our Vegas Golden Knights, Alex Tuch! Joined by his close friends on Saturday evening, they met with the D Casino Hotel executive Richard Wilk for dinner at Andiamo Italian Steakhouse (Pictured: NHL Las Vegas Golden Knights player Alex Tuch with Andiamo 32oz Tomahawk – Photo credit: the D Casino Hotel)
Even though Alex wasn’t playing over at T-Mobile Arena, he definitely felt like he scored when he laid his eyes on their 32-oz Tomahawk steak!
By the way, how cool is the fact that the D is actually partnered with the Golden Knights? As a matter of fact, the casino’s world-famous LONGBAR is the go-to place to watch the Knights in action when downtown!
There, Alex and his buddies met with the D’s owner (and huge Golden Knights fan), Derek Stevens! The owner himself then showed the men around the D Casino Hotel and Fremont Street Experience.
When the hockey hunk came back into the D, he chatted with executive casino host, and former NHL player of the Boston Bruins, Darren Banks. Alex was happy to talk hockey and hear some crazy stories from the former Bruin.
Alex also ran into Horny Mike from the hit TV show, “Counting Cars”, who happened to be visiting friends at the LONGBAR at the time!
It seems like Alex’s delicious dish at the award-winning Vegas steakhouse brought him loads of luck, because the next day, Golden Knights won against the LA Kings 4-2. Alex ended up having a great game and scoring the last goal!
By these countless NHL player visits to the D Casino Hotel, it’s clear that if you can’t find these athletes on the ice, you’ll most likely run into them at the famous downtown hot spot, Andiamo Italian Steakhouse!
