Valley Forge debuts country-western saloon

King of Prussia gets a little taste of Nashville Saturday as Valley Forge Casino Resort debuts the Deuces Wild Buckin’ Bull Saloon.

Located on the ground floor of the adjacent Radisson Hotel tower, below the Valley Tavern, Deuces Wild is a country music-themed nightspot that will operate Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.

“We felt this would be a great option for our guests and [residents] of the surrounding area,” said Chelsea Szerencsits, Valley Forge’s beverage director. “Country music is very popular in this area.”

The saloon, whose décor is being described as “barn door,” will feature DJs; Saturdays, the tunes will be chosen by WXTU-FM (92.5) personality Crockett, who will broadcast live from Deuces Wild (Szerencsits said live music may be added down the road). And like any self-respecting country music bar, there will be a mechanical bull.

The menu offers such bar staples as burgers, wings and nachos.

There is no cover charge before 10 p.m. It’ll cost you five bucks to get in after that. People under 21 will be admitted only between 6 and 9 p.m.

More blues at Atlantic Club

Speaking of intimate casino entertainment venues, The Atlantic Club Casino Hotel has announced the November lineup for its popular “Burgers and Blues” presentations that take place every Friday and Saturday at The Burger Bar.

The schedule—based, of course, on when The Atlantic Club and the rest of AyCee’s 12 gambling dens are given the green light to reopen after the closings caused by Hurricane Sandy—is as follows:

Friday: Kerry Kearny; Saturday: Speedo Jones; Nov. 9: Robert Ross; Nov. 10: Speedo Jones; Nov. 16: Kerry Kearney; Nov. 17: Speedo Jones; Nov. 23, 24 and 30: Robert Ross.

Sandy knocks out Boyz show

Not surprisingly, Saturday’s concert by Philly-bred Boyz II Men has been canceled because of Hurricane Sandy. This weekend’s performances of “Divas Do AC,” the popular drag revue at Resorts' Screening Room theater, are likewise shut down.

Also, we erred Thursday when we reported the "Musselman's Apple Sauce Skating Tribute featuring Jewel" ice show at Boardwalk Hall would be rescheduled. There will be no makeup date.
