Hurly's NFR Hot Spots Blog

A Wrangler NFR Treasure of fun, entertainment, dancing, laughing, packages and more awaits at TI

“On the Road Again” is one of the most well-known phrases in all of country & Western music and lifestyle.

And that is exactly where Hurly’s NFR Hotspots takes us this time, on the road (again) to the Treasure Island (TI), home of arguably country & Western’s most notable honkytonk, Gilley’s Saloon, Dance Hall and BBQ.

This place rocks throughout the year, but it gets turned up to whole ‘nother level when the Wrangler NFR gallops into the city that glitters.

At Gilley’s, the spirited saloons of the wild west frontier days are combined with the modern style and action of the Las Vegas Strip, and that makes for an always epic party.

The entire TI property has become a go-to spot for fans and competitors during the Wrangler NFR’s 10 days and nights. Bringing more credibility to the TI rodeo vibe is that the casino and resort is the official sponsor of the NFR’s bull riders. For many rodeo fans, bull riding—the final event of each go-round–is the ultimate show. The TI is a sponsor that is up to the task of matching that action.

Besides a non-stop party, the TI features special NFR room packages, which include rates starting at $79 plus an official Gilley’s NFR souvenir, 2 for 1 meal at Corner Market buffet, 2 for 1 draft beers at Gilley’s, always free parking and other goodies.

“Rodeo fans will completely take over Gilley’s Saloon as well as our brand, new Golden Circle Sports Bar,” says Don Voss, TI vice president of sales and marketing. “We’ll have the holiday spirit flowing in spurs (not spades), and the entire male and female staff turns into cowboys to serve our rodeo brothers and sisters. The TI is truly the ideal spot for NFR fans. Beyond Gilley’s, free shuttles to the Thomas & Mack, live bands and headliner comedians at TI during NFR, rodeo fans know they are within walking distance to all the very best shopping, dining and 24-hour entertainment available on the Las Vegas Strip.”

Gilley’s is known for two-steppin’, and delicious and authentic BBQ—plus live music many nights—in a venue overlooking the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. There’s also mechanical bull riding and the Gilley’s Girls welcome and entertain patrons as only they can.

The Wrangler NFR experience pretty much takes over the whole TI property. Here’s a look at what is on tap.
