Santa Ana Star Casino Hosts “Better Call Saul” Premiere Party
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Jan. 29, 2015

The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Jan. 29, 2015 – Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico’s Best Bet, will celebrate the debut of AMC’s Albuquerque-based “Breaking Bad” prequel, “Better Call Saul,” with a premiere viewing party. The “Better Call Saul” premiere viewing party will be held in Lounge 54 on Sunday, Feb. 8, beginning at 8 p.m.

“More than a year after we said goodbye to Walt, Jesse and the rest of the ‘Breaking Bad’ crew, we will finally pick up the story again, showing the debut episode of ‘Better Call Saul’ on HDTVs throughout Lounge 54 and on our giant screen projection system,” said Santa Ana Star Casino Director of Marketing Tammy Neil. “Guests don’t have to have seen ‘Breaking Bad’ to follow ‘Better Call Saul,’ but this viewing party will have plenty of winks to the Emmy award-winning series including a special menu featuring Los Pollos Hermanos fried chicken and ‘Breaking Bad’-themed drinks.”

During the viewing party, guests will enjoy an expanded drink menu featuring themed drinks including the “Breaking Bad” Martini, Walter White’s Russian and Pinkman’s Punch. Los Pollos Hermanos fried chicken combos will be available and served in logo bags. Guests will also have the chance to win “Better Call Saul” merchandise and prizes during commercial breaks. 

A prequel to “Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul” is set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) meets Walter White—a time when he is still known as Jimmy McGill, a struggling lawyer with a knack for exploiting moral gray areas and hustling to make ends meet. Chronicling McGill’s transformation into Goodman, the series will show McGill’s journey towards his destiny as “the man who puts ‘criminal’ in ‘criminal lawyer.’” 

Guests can attend the “Better Call Saul” premiere viewing party free of charge. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend.  For more information, please call (505) 867-0000 or visit www.lounge54atthestar.com.
