Everett on the Fourth of July 2019 is not unlike 10,000 Everetts just like it all over the nation. There is one great exception this year over all other modern years. And that is the completion, the opening and the final launch of the Encore Boston Harbor Casino and Hotel. As great a moment in the city’s modern history the casino and the hotel are, this July Fourth holiday stands alone in dwarfing its significance.
We are a city filled with thinking people, hardworking men and women, immigrant people from all over the world, legals and illegals, old and young, rich and poor, happy and sad, women and men, gay people and heterosexuals, LGBTQ and transgenders. You name it, we have it here in Everett – and we have it all over the nation.
This past Saturday night Encore hosted a private and wild VIP dance party with an open bar and exclusive concert by Earth, Wind and Fire.
Guest partied the night away to the famous sounds of the Grammy Award-winning band in the Picasso ballroom. Tickets to the party were not for purchase and given only to VIP’s, which included the high rollers and special guest of Encore.
