Congratulations Kevin and Gina!

Congratulations to our own server and friend, Kevin and his new wife, Gina!

Last Saturday the darling duo tied the knot on our patio in front of family (biological and Blackhawk!), friends and, of course, the Blackhawk ducks and swans.

We couldn't be happier to have hosted this celebration of love and initiation of Kevin and Gina's life together. Cheers to you guys! We wish you happiness, health and lifetime of love and laughter.

Sex and The City 2: Thurs, May 27

The day is almost here! Tomorrow, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda will waltz into Blackhawk Plaza, and you know they'll do it in style. So call the babysitter, pull your pumps from your daughter's dress-up box, and hit the town for cosmos at the Blackhawk Grille with your girls (or your own Mr. Big!) This is so much more than movie premiere, it's the ending of an era. So celebrate, and help your four favorite big city gals go out with a bang! Cheers!

Our Buddy Hollie

IF you recognize this pretty face, consider yourself, 1) lucky, and 2) apart of the Blackhawk Grille family. If you don’t recognize her, read on, because this is our bartender and buddy, Hollie, and she wants to welcome you to the BHG fam!

Hollie is known to make her patrons personal friends, and remarks that this has happened quite often over the course of her 14 years at BHG.

“I bartend for the people,” Hollie says. “I love interacting with our guests. They turn into family to me, and I’ve made quite a few great friends here.”

In addition to the great people, Hollie says there are some other perks to her job, including a plethora of salad options and an overall soothing atmosphere, to which she gives credit to the pond outside. Water in general, but specifically the ocean, provides a calmness, she says.

“If I could go anywhere, I’d go on a long vacation to Hawaii, to the ocean, to relax. Something about the ocean is calming to me.”

If she’s not behind the bar, chatting with her guests while shaking drinks, Hollie is probably in her garden, or—when she has the time, energy and patience—hitting balls on the golf course. But if you’re lucky enough to find her behind the bar (Monday through Friday nights), sit down and get ready to chat with one of our favorite BHG team members…Hollie!
