Every Day is Sundae at Emeralds
Every day is Sundae with seven new off-menu dessert specials at the beloved, 24-hour Emerald restaurant.
The promotion, formally titled “Every Day is Sundae,” features a different three-scoop ice cream sundae every day of the week. According to Emerald Manager Danny DeGeorge, these sweet treats debuted December 6 and will be available through the end of 2022.
“I know we’re kicking off this special in the middle of winter, at a time when sundaes are not on the top of everyone’s list, but when you’re inside the casino you forget what’s going on in the world, so I like to think the time of year doesn’t matter,” Danny said. “When it’s cold outside, hopefully this will bring a little bit of summer to everyone’s life.”
The lineup is impressive:
- Monday: Traditional Hot Fudge Sundae
- Tuesday: Caramel Sundae
- Wednesday: Butterscotch Sundae
- Thursday: Strawberry Banana Sundae
- Friday: Cookies and Cream Sundae
- Saturday: Peanut Butter Sundae
- Sunday: Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae
Of these seven, the Sunday sundae is perhaps the most decadent: It comprises two scoops of vanilla ice cream, one scoop of chocolate ice cream, a chocolate chip cookie from Opals, hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry.
It’s also worth noting that the Thursday sundae features a whole chocolate-covered banana, and the Saturday sundae is topped with real peanut butter.
Danny considers himself “the ultimate sweet-tooth,” and proudly said he devised specifics for the sundae special based on feedback about having more options for dessert. Emerald currently offers a traditional hot fudge sundae and a brownie sundae (and it previously offered a “Pie of the Month” special), but guests told him they wanted more variety in their ice cream choices.
The catch with the new sundaes is that they’re officially unofficial—you won’t find them on any menu or printed literature in the restaurant. When you go to Emerald, look for the specials board or ask your server about the sundae of the day.
Danny said guests should embrace the idea of dessert as a dinner you don’t have to share.
“Who needs to come in and have dinner first?” he asked. “Come in, grab a coffee, get a sundae, and you’re good. Some people share them. I prefer to eat them all by myself.”
