Harrah’s Las Vegas’ newly renovated country cornerstone, Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill, celebrated its 10 year anniversary on Friday, Sept. 30 with a surprise appearance from its namesake founder, legendary singer/songwriter, Toby Keith.
As house band Left of Centre was performing, an audience roar from stage left cued the surprise arrival of Keith, who promptly jumped on stage and thanked the crowd for celebrating the special milestone with him. After asking if there was a guitar he could use, Keith went on to perform the anthem to his bar and grill, “I Love This Bar.”
Following Keith’s pop-up performance, Harrah’s Las Vegas’ General Manager, Dan Walsh, thanked him for his support and congratulated him and his staff on 10 incredible years and toasted to many more. Keith was then presented a large American Flag guitar cake, the same patriotic symbol seen throughout the restaurant and in his logo. He thanked fans and posed for photos before departing.
Later in the evening, country fans were delighted to yet another chart-topping performance, this time by country duo Thompson Square. The group performed an acoustic set of theirs hits, “Are you Gonna Kiss Me or Not,” “If I Didn’t Have You,” and more.
Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar &Grill is celebrating the anniversary all October-long with the debut of the “Toby Keith’s Anniversary Burger” made with a Po’Boy surf and turf. The specialty burger is available through October 31.
