  • Straight Blast Gym Atlanta presents Casino Night 2022


    Join us for SBG’s favorite event of the year, coming to you from the Tannery Row Alehouse in downtown Buford

    For the fifth consecutive year, Straight Blast Gym Atlanta will be hosting Casino Night, a student-appreciation event for the men and women of both SBG Atlanta and SBG Buford. Casino Night started as a wild idea that we had back in 2018 and quickly became a staple of our yearly event calendar. Hosted in our own gym for the first couple of years, the popularity of Casino Night demanded that we look for a bigger and more grandiose venue to hold the event. Enter the Tannery Row Alehouse in downtown Buford.

    We have rented out a 2,000 square foot private banquet room exclusively for the patrons of SBG Casino Night. The room will include our own private bathrooms and bartender (cash bar). It’s a beautiful space, and it looks even better when it’s full of dapper-looking SBG men and beautiful SBG ladies.

    So what exactly is Casino Night, and how does it work?

    On Casino Night, we bring in a professional gaming company to run the entire event. This year we’ll have the following:

    ♠️ 4 Blackjack tables
    ♠️ 3 Poker tables
    ♠️ 1 Roulette table
    ♠️ 1 Craps table

    You do not need to have any gambling experience to attend and enjoy Casino Night. This is an event for everyone, not just seasoned card sharks. The dealers are super cool and will help teach and guide you through the games.

    What’s the dress code for Casino Night?

    Cocktail attire. If you’re not sure what that means click right here.

    Don’t stress about buying a $300 outfit just for Casino Night. If you avoid t-shirts, athletic wear, and anything with holes and you should be okay.

    What is the cost of Casino Night?

    Admission is $60. If you would like to bring your spouse or significant other you may do so for $40.

    Funny Money, Gambling, and Prizes

    With your admission, you will receive $1,000 worth of “Funny Money”, which you can exchange for gambling chips at any table. Spend your $1,000 however you want, and if you go bust you can rebuy from Coach Jim or Coach Phil at any time.

    At the end of the night, we’ll raffle off prizes. The more chips you finish with the more likely you are to walk away with an awesome prize. Last year we gave away Private Lessons, a Jiu Jitsu gi, a Yeti cooler, a free 60 minute deep-tissue massage, and more!

    If you would like to attend Casino Night, simply stop by the front desk of either Straight Blast Gym Buford or Straight Blast Gym Atlanta and secure admission for yourself and your +1. Due to the size of the venue and the popularity of this event, we have to cap the total attendance at 100 people so this event will reach capacity. Lock in your spot ASAP so you don’t miss the event of the year.
