labor day putinbay

The end of summer is almost upon us and this is one of the biggest going away parties you will find. Kids are getting ready for classes and this is often the last best chance for families to enjoy a summer vacation to the beautiful island of Put-in-Bay.

It’s a long weekend so there is lots of time to visit the Monument, see your favorite island entertainers, munch on one of Mr. Ed’s new Cameo pizzas, sip down some lobster bisque at the Boardwalk, or hang out at the infamous MIST Saturday pool party in a luxury cabana. This weekend always fills up, so plan ahead!

Put-in-Bay Volunteer Fire Departments 5 Alarm Texas Hold Em Tournament

9/21/19 - 9/21/19

texas holdem tourney

Island firefighters hold the annual Texas Holdem Tournaments to raise funds for equipment upgrades for the island department. Two tournaments, one at 12:00 PM and the second at 6:00 PM are held at the fire station on Concord Avenue. Refreshments will be available.

Texas hold ’em (also known as Texas holdem, hold ’em, and holdem) is a variation of the card game of poker. Two cards, known as hole cards, are dealt face down to each player, and then five community cards are dealt face up in three stages. The stages consist of a series of three cards (“the flop”), later an additional single card (“the turn” or “fourth street”), and a final card (“the river” or “fifth street”). Each player seeks the best five card poker hand from any combination of the seven cards of the five community cards and their two hole cards. Players have betting options to check, call, raise, or fold. Rounds of betting take place before the flop is dealt and after each subsequent deal. The player who has the best hand and has not folded by the end of all betting rounds wins all of the money bet for the hand, known as the pot. read more
