British Open Pub in Scottsdale Holds Royal Wedding Crashers Party

Scottsdale, Ariz. – Didn’t get your invitation to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29? Neither did the folks at British Open Pub in Scottsdale so they’re staging a wedding party for the uninvited.

The popular British pub has even whipped up a special drink for the occasion and is offering it for half price throughout the day, as British Open Pub televisions replay the wedding and patrons dine on traditional English fare.

The drink, dubbed the “The Royal Snub”, will be only $4 all day – half the normal price.

The “The Royal Snub” features Parrot Bay coconut rum, Patron Citronage (orange-flavored tequila) and a splash of orange juice on the rocks.

“We don’t need a wedding invitation to have a good time,” said British Open Pub owner Gregg Troilo. “When you combine our food, drink specials, pub atmosphere and plenty of cheer, British Open Pub will be way more fun than Westminster Abbey or London on April 29.”

According to news reports, more than 1,900 royal wedding invitations were delivered to dignitaries, family members and celebrities. Among those rumored to be on the list are David Beckham, Kanye West, Elton John and Parliament. British Open Pub patrons have some good company on the non-invited list: President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, were not extended an invitation to the April 29 nuptials.

“At least we’re not the only important people that weren’t invited,” Troilo said, laughing.

The “Bop” as regulars call it, has something for everyone. Whether it’s authentic English food like Bangers and Mash, traditional American comfort food, a massive selection of beers from around the world or simply a fun pub to watch the day’s biggest sporting events, the Bop is the spot for foodies and sports fans – and on April 29, royal wedding crashers.

The British Open Pub is located at 1334 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, Arizona, on the southwest corner of Scottsdale and McDowell roads.
