Feel lucky? Want to donate to a worthy cause? Wish you could go to Atlantic City but don't have the time? The Golden Flame Restaurant on Route 175 in Odenton is hosting a Mini Bull Roast and Atlantic City Day from 1 to 8 p.m.
Oct. 21. Tickets are $12 per person and include a buffet with ham, sausage and beef, all prepared on an open pit, plus potato salad, cole slaw and all the trimmings.
All types of games of chance and money wheels will be on hand for you to try your luck, with all of the proceeds donated to the Maryland Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Performing that evening will be the band Skyline. The Golden Flame is sponsoring a month of games and events to support this worthy cause; the bull roast and Atlantic City day is their biggest and hopefully most profitable event.
