Ellis Island is back in the news with their drink promotions. It’s better than ever because they are offering $1 well drinks and wine, Ellis Island Brewery Beer and domestic beers available 24/7 at the casino bar. In addition, casino workers presenting proper work ID can imbibe absolutely free between the hours of 3 a.m. and 8 a.m. daily.

And finally, a third drink special takes place in the lounge offering all of the same libations as the casino bar for a buck between 3 a.m. and 9 p.m. every day, open to all adults. All three promotions are expected to be "ongoing" until further notice, but as always management reserves the right to change or discontinue the promotion at their discretion. Drink up and enjoy, but plan for a designated driver! Safety first, please.
