Other events and giveaways will take place all week long to mark the one-year anniversary of Reserve Casino Hotel, beginning Saturday, April 20, and culminating Saturday, April 27, 2013.

As a special end to the anniversary week, Reserve Casino Hotel will host a sneak peak preview of Joe Piscopo’s new movie, How Sweet It Is, being released May 10, 2013 in targeted theaters.

The story focuses on alcoholic theater owner, Jack (Piscopo), who needs a strong showing for his musical’s opening night to dig himself out of debt with the mob. The mob boss (Paul Sorvino) insists that his friends get roles in the musical, which complicates things somewhat. Burt Reynolds will cameo as himself and Erika Christensen will play Jack’s daughter. How Sweet It Is is directed by Brian Herzlinger (Baby on Board) from a script he co-wrote with Jay Black. The movie premiered at the American Film Market on November 14, 2012.
