Celebrate National Lobster Day every day at Monarch Casino Black Hawk

The food of colonial peasants is now one of the most sought-after culinary delights

In the 1800s, lobster was considered peasant food because early settlers could go right down to the sea and capture them during low tide. Lobsters are now a billion dollar industry, but they won’t cost you one extra penny if you take the short drive to Monarch Casino Black Hawk.

Monarch Casino Black Hawk is the only Black Hawk casino where your buffet ticket includes the price of a lobster, along with sumptuous crab legs, mouthwatering prime rib, and many other culinary favorites.

Here’s some more tantalizing lobster facts from Foodimentary:

  • All lobsters aren’t red; they can be bright blue, white and glittering gold.

  • They can be right-handed, left-handed or ambidextrous

  • They can live to be more than 100 years old

  • Most lobsters travel over 100 miles a year

But you won’t have to travel 100 miles- just 45 minutes from the Denver metro area through Clear Creek Canyon to Monarch Casino Black Hawk- to enjoy your lobster in one of the best buffets around. National Lobster Day is June 15!
