The fashion show will conclude the company’s month-long initiative to raise awareness of preventative health and early detection of breast cancer.

Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City Holds “Topping Off” Building Event For Waterfront Conference Center

The final beam was placed in the building of the Waterfront Conference Center at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City earlier this afternoon to signify the completion of the building’s structure. Next comes all that ‘s needed for a foundation – concrete, electrical, plumbing, dry wall and all that good stuff best explained not by an Atlantic City blogger.

Caesars Entertainment President and CEO, Gary Loveman, led the way to the last beam in this Topping Out Ceremony and decorated it with his John Hancock as did many of the other folks in attendance.

Waterfront Conference Center

The Waterfront Conference Center marks a $125 million expansion to Harrah’s Resort and is expected to bring a whole new slew of clientel to the city for midweek conferences. The finished product will serve as the largest and most technologically advanced facility of its kind in the Northeast region.

Take a look at a little 3D projected view:

 

There’s more where that came from.

In conclusion, we leave you with these words from Gary Loveman:

 

The Waterfront Conference Center at Harrah’s Resort coming at you – October 2015! Be on the look out! Click here for contact information to inquire about hosting your meeting or conference here next year.

Harrah’s Online Casino Gives You Even More Ways To Win Big in Atlantic City!

Eyes were definitely on the prize(s) this past Saturday at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City as the property’s online gaming hub, Harrah’s Online Casino, hosted an Atlantic City Live Treasure Hunt. Clues led the online gamers to The Pool, Viking Cooking School and finally to Eden Lounge where they signed up for the finale event.

Three treasure chests held the goods – $15,000, $7,000 and $3,000 respectively. Finalists were asked to choose a scroll. Only the finalists who held a scroll numbered 1, 2 or 3 were able to select a treasure chest where the dollar amounts were unveiled when opened. In the end, David D’Alessandro walked away with the top prize while Marian Zmiga scored second best and Joanne Waldron was a winner with 3K. Not too shabby, right? And fun!

Harrah's Online Casino

The winners along with the other finalists all completed three weekly challenges during the month of September on Harrah’s Online Casino to earn this opportunity. These folks are regular (and some even daily) players who enjoy games from slots to roulette to blackjack and video poker.

Millionaire Genie, a progressive 5-reel, was a particular favorite slot game of the crew. Just like the casino at Harrah’s Atlantic City, the Harrah’s Online Casino slot product ranges anywhere from your classic 3-reel favorites to popular video slots you’ve seen in action, many with progressive jackpots.

So if you find yourself with that Atlantic City gambling itch, but can’t make the trip, remember that Harrah’s Online Casino is ALWAYS right at your fingertips. The easy to use website is designed for players of every experience level and even offers basic play rules and strategies for beginners. And in true Caesars Entertainment fashion, you are of course able to play with your Total Rewards account so you can rack up the comps to enjoy online or in Atlantic City.

Basically what we’re trying to say is that if you haven’t yet dipped into the waters of online gaming yet, try it. Chances are you’ll love it. And you might even find yourself winning $15 in a Live Treasure Hunt at Harrah’s Resort! The possibilities are endless!

Viva AC: The Top 5 Vegas Things In Atlantic City

Are you a Las Vegas fanatic? Are there just so many things about that destination that make you excited and energized?! Well, we have a secret for you. You may already know this tid bit. And you may not. But there is a whole ‘lotta Vegas up in Atlantic City right at this very moment. The tastes, the vibe and the ching ching. Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City properties got it too! In no particular order, check out the Top 5 Vegas Things In Atlantic City.

1. The Casino Floor at Bally’s Atlantic City

Atlantic City casinos

The casino floor at Bally’s Atlantic City was opened up and reconstructed at the beginning of the year. Instead of a crowded mishmash of machines, you’re now able to take a clearer pathway to your favorite games. Most of the table games are also conveniently located along the main aisles of the casino….just like Vegas! Bally’s Atlantic City and Bally’s Las Vegas casinos are insanely strikingly similar in terms of set up and end cap art.

2. Martorano’s at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City

Martorano's

Al Pacino and Jimmy Kimmel’s favorite meatballs, Italian classics (and we’re talking food and mob movies), disco lights, loud R&B music and slow jams aren’t just a winning combination you can only get in Vegas! While Rio Las Vegas was the first to bring the Martorano brand to the west coast, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City brought it back east soon after. Same menu, same decor, same music, same movies and a killer concept you can’t get just anywhere…but you can get it in Las Vegas AND Atlantic City.

3. Dueling Pianos at Bally’s Atlantic City

Dueling Pianos

Strolling down the Las Vegas strip you see and hear many a’ dueling piano like the situation at the Napoleon Lounge at Paris Las Vegas, but did you know that this dueling piano action also goes down right off the Atlantic City boardwalk at Blue Martini at Bally’s? It’s true. New dueling pianists are welcomed every Saturday night to battle it out and take requests from the crowd. Plus you’re able to sip on unique specialty martinis (like marshmallow and gumball) while sitting back to enjoy the tunes. We love the energy of a piano, don’t you?

4. Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City (coming soon)

Gordon Ramsay Atlantic City

This one is coming soon. The construction walls are actually up as we speak, but Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill (much like the one at Caesars Palace Las Vegas) is coming to Caesars Atlantic City in early 2015. Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill is set to be the most authentic English pub (with over 30 beers on tap) in Atlantic City as it is in Sin City. The decor is also slated to be on point with the mothership such as the English telephone booth style backdrops and patio that extends outwards towards the casino floor.

5. Vegas Fries at Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s Atlantic City

Guy Fieri Atlantic City 4

VEGAS Fries. Need we say more?

See! All the good parts of Las Vegas are all up in AC these days. Check out Caesars, Harrah’s Resort, and Bally’s for a little taste of it within driving distance. Click here to see all of our special room offers.

3 To Die For Desserts at The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort

It’s Tuesday, perhaps the most unexciting day of the seven day stretch, so Total AC Blog is here to sweeten up your week a bit. And by this we mean one of our most favorite things on this earth: dessert. You would be making a huge mistake if you underestimated The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City for this most important course of a meal. They have some incredible options for all kinds of taste buds!

First off, check out the Chocolate Banana Cream Pie.

Atlantic City steakhouses 1

Mmmm! Chocolate crust with layers of light, fluffy chocolate cream filled with chunks of flavorful bananas. There’s nothing chintzy about this one, folks. Nothing. All big flavors, all beautifully complimented. Warning: This last course is addicting and will be gone before you know it!

Next we have the creme brulee.

Atlantic City steakhouses 2

Another item that makes our mouths water just by simply saying the name. Served with a side of tasty blueberries in a gooey pile of heavenly caramel, this dessert is perfect for a lighter ending to your meal. Decadent vanilla custard with the perfect amount of hard caramel on top. The sweetness of the caramel really keeps ya coming back for more! It’s just that good. And the consistency is perfect!

And finally, what is this?

Atlantic City steakhouses 3

Contrary to what your eyes may be telling you, it’s not a bald man, but rather something seasonably delicious. While it may not look like much, this tremendous puff pastry is filled with delicious apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and all that other good stuff used to make a fabulous candied syrup. This hot piece of apple crisp is served to you and then quickly topped with its soulmate – a heaping scoop of french vanilla ice cream. The portion size is incredible. We could eat this forever.

And that’s the moral of this story, really. We could eat this forever. We could eat any of these three forever and be perfectly overjoyed.

Up In The Club: September Celebrity Fashion at The Pool After Dark

Hard to believe that another month has passed and more celebs have made their mark on that red carpet at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City! September brought some heat along with some cooler temps as well. While it’s always hot at The Pool After Dark, fashion tends to go with the degrees and the season, and not surprisingly, we saw this in terms of celebrity style up in the club this month. Check it out.

Perhaps this one fit the theme.

Atlantic City clubs 1

It was Back To School with Mr. Belding. Maybe he was going for that principal-ish look. Or maybe the weather was iffy. We’ll never really know for sure, but Dennis Haskins started off the month with a little layering action that would carry all the way through.

The very next night:

Atlantic City clubs 2

Did Jamie Kennedy really take a cue from Mr. Belding? ANOTHER dark jacket? Luckily this is a popular Atlantic City nightclub and not a fifth grade dance, because this jacket is a bit more snazzy. Is that metalics we see? With black and white undertones? We kinda dig it.

J. Holiday said heck no to the jacket this past Friday and used a dark pink button up as his outerwear if you will.

Atlantic City clubs 3

The pushed up sleeves and black layered top gave this outfit choice a little edge to match his personality. You can still be bad ass in a button down. And lest we forget, real men wear pink.

William Lifestyle decided to go the same route this past Saturday during his residency gig with Brody Jenner except he went for the open air, flowing in the breeze denim button up look.

Atlantic City clubs 4

Why not, right? Looks super comfortable and easy to discard if the heat turns up. Equally as important.

So that’s what September had going on in terms of celeb fashion at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort. Can you feel the testosterone?! Ain’t nothing wrong with that! October should be a fabulous doozy with Paris Hilton and Halloween on the schedule. We can’t wait! Can YOU?!

Rickey Smiley Talks Atlantic City Comedy Festival, Career & More!

Question. What are YOU doing Columbus Day Weekend? Do you have any plans? You should. Because the Atlantic City Comedy Festival will be back for the fifth consecutive year at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall for two nights of rip roaring laughter.

Adele Givens (Queens of Comedy), John Witherspoon (Black Jesus), Gary Owen (Think Like A Man Too), Aries Spears (Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam), Huggy Lowdown (Tom Joyner Morning Show) and headliner Corey Holcomb (Black Jesus) will take the stage on Saturday, October 11th while Mike Epps (Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam – Live from Las Vegas), Earthquake (WBLS Radio host of Quakes House), Dominique (Tom Joyner Morning Show) Cipha Sounds (New York’s “Hot 97” radio) and Rickey Smiley (Rickey Smiley Morning Show) will bring the house down on Sunday, October 12th.

We don’t know about you, but Rickey Smiley holds a special place in our hearts. We’ve let him into our homes with the Rickey Smiley Morning Show for years now and he just seems to bring a little more to the table. He is one of the few people on this earth that knows how to weave humor into social and political conversation. And of course we can’t forget about his hilarious prank phone calls (Lil Daryl, Uncle Melvin, Buried Alive, the list goes on) and clean repetoire. Somehow he’s also been able to master the live stage, sitcom world, and televised comedy special worlds too. He can do it all, people.

We were lucky enough to recently sit down and talk with him about the Atlantic City Comedy Festival and his comedic journeys. Check out the interview, below.

rickey smiley

TAC: We’re super excited to see you on October 11th in Atlantic City! What can we expect from your performance at Boardwalk Hall on 10/12?

Rickey Smiley: I plan on bringing non stop laughter and making sure that everyone enjoys the show. I want everyone to show up open casket sharp.

TAC: What’s one of your earliest memories of making people laugh?

Rickey Smiley: When i was in junior high school, my teacher used to tell the class don’t laugh at him because he will not stop!

TAC: Little did they all know! One of the reasons that your radio show is one of the top in the country is because you use humor to discuss political and social issues. How are you able to find that balance discussing serious topics in a humorous way?

Rickey Smiley: Because I am very aware of issues in our community, but i must always beware of the fact that i am here to lighten up someone’s day on their way to work, school , wherever they are going, listening to me.

TAC: With that being said, it seems like you have been continually able to grow your career in the right ways from stand up to your radio show, to your impersonations and live tour. How have you been able to do that while always keeping those goals of what you stand for in check?

Rickey Smiley: I have always understood that at the end of the day, I am a comedian and I like to entertain people no matter what the capacity.

TAC: Another huge part of The Rickey Smiley Morning Show is your famous prank phone calls. Is there one in particular that sticks out in your mind as a favorite over the years?

Rickey Smiley: Monroe’s momma!

TAC: YES! What’s the best piece of advice you would give future comedians?

Rickey Smiley: To be true to yourself and be original as possible.

TAC: What are you most proud of so far in your career?

Rickey Smiley: To be able to still be reverent, to be able to deliver a quality show after all these years and to still have a passion for comedy.

TAC: You make people laugh all the time, but what’s the last thing that’s made you laugh?

Rickey Smiley: Probably listening to the callers on my Paternity Test Tuesdays.

TAC: Anything else in the works for you? Another tour of your own coming soon?

Rickey Smiley: Yes, I am going to go on a tour starting this winter possibly with Mike Epps. I just want to say to all my fans please come out and see me at the Comedy Fest and if u are not a fan, i promise to make you one! Hope to see everyone from Jersey, New York , Philly , B’more… love to you all!

We couldn’t agree more! You heard Rickey Smiley, get to the Atlantic City Comedy Festival at Boardwalk Hall on October 11th & 12th! There’s laughs to be had…lots! Show starts at 8 p.m. on both nights. Click here for tickets and here for room packages at Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City properties.
