Tavern giving away free trips to Vegas

Try your luck at Alfie’s Place, and you could be going from Throggs Neck on a free trip to Las Vegas.

The bar and grill just off East Tremont Avenue at the Cross Bronx Expressway is showing its appreciation to its customers by giving away 14 free trips to the city of Lost Wages.

The packages includes airfare and a three-day two-night stay for two at The Riviera Hotel, and a coupon book with over $500 in discounts for various locations.

Customers will have 15 months to book the trip.

In order to qualify, customers must show up before the start of the highlighted NFL games, and make sure to receive a raffle ticket, free of charge.

At the end of each game, one ticket will be pulled and awarded the giveaway.

“We really are doing the raffle to give back to our customers for the many years of service,” said owner Mike Banker. “We’ve had a loyal customer base for years. And we’re also hoping to attract some new customers as well. All they have to do is come in on Sundays, eat, drink and watch football.”

The bar has already given away three free trips.

The trips will mostly be awarded during the 4:25 p.m. games on Sundays, but there are a few exceptions.

“There is also a couple of Sunday night games, one Monday night game and a double giveaway mixed in as well,” Banker said. “This Sunday’s giveaway will take place during the Jets and Patriots game at 4:25 p.m.”

Alfie’s Place, at 3037 Cross Bronx Expressway, is the oldest continuously operated bar in Throggs Neck, said Banker, but has been under new management since March 2012.

Banker said he hopes the promotion will add to the already loyal fan base.
