Raider legend at Sazio’s

Jan 21, 2003 6:14 AM

Greg Townsend, the Oakland Raiders’ all-time sack leader, comes to Las Vegas for Jay Martin’s Big Game Party at Sazio at The Orleans, on Super Bowl Sunday.

Townsend’s career included a Super Bowl appearance in his rookie season with, of course, a sack. He was a Pro Bowl starter for two consecutive years, and he holds the all-time Raiders’ sack record with 107.5.

After meeting with Townsend, Martin knew "he was the guy" to host the party. Everyone who attends the Party will get to meet Townsend and get his autograph.

"This party is just what the fans ordered," Martin said. Many parties have hot dogs and a celebrity that "makes an appearance at halftime, tells a bad joke and leaves."

But not at this party. "That’s why Greg Townsend of the Oakland Raiders was signed for the event. His persona lends to meeting with all the fans," Martin said.

Townsend will give all partygoers an autograph. Plus there will be drawings for for sports memorabilia all game long, and party-goers can feast on an all-you-can-eat Italian buffet,

complete with St. Pauli Girl beer.

In fact, the St. Pauli Girls will be in attendance. There will also be a booth with more Raiders’ and Greg Townsend memorabilia available for purchase.

Doors to the Sazio party open at 1:30 p.m. and tickets are just $35, on sale now at Sazio at The Orleans. Call 948.9500 or toll-free at 888.797.0300 for reservations.
