Onyx Sports Bar | Saturday, November 16 | Kickoff at 12:00 PM

Join us Saturday, November 16 at Onyx Sports Bar for the biggest game of the year: Michigan vs. Michigan State! We’re celebrating this year’s rivalry game in a BIG way with tailgate-style food, free giveaways, and two special guests on-site during the game: former Michigan wide receiver Anthony Carter and former Michigan State linebacker Kyler Elsworth. 

But the fun doesn’t stop there! We’re giving away huge prizes all game long from premium coolers to stainless steel grills, including a Yeti Tundra Cooler filled with $500 in cash!

Invited VIP guests can enjoy unlimited food, drink specials, and a private meet ‘n greet with Anthony and Kyle prior to kickoff. (For information on our VIP program, please speak to a casino host at this event)
