Atlantic City bars

The Starburst. And it’s called The Starburst because it tastes just like one. Yes, the candy. Goes down just like the candy too if ya know what we mean. We got a little Watermelon Schnapps, Vanilla Vodka, Sour Mix and Simple Syrup with a sugared rim. Perfection in a glass! Seriously.

Try it out at Scarduzio’s at Showboat! Wednesdays & Thursdays 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. And to get a FREE round of these (and a late checkout) during your next stay, book this room package starting at $39!

A $29 Spring Meal at Casa Di Napoli at Showboat Atlantic City

How has your spring been going so far? It’s actually feeling spring-ish lately, right?! We love it! Have you tried any of the new $29 spring menus at Caesars Atlantic City, Showboat Atlantic City or Bally’s Atlantic City that we told you about a couple weeks ago? If not, what are you waiting for?!

Casa Di Napoli at Showboat has a particularly appealing new menu this season. The first course selection starts you off in the right direction for a perfect, fine dining experience! Food is exciting! Don’t pretend you don’t feel the same way.

Anyway, if you choose to grab some grub for $29 at this Italian restaurant in Atlantic City, you get a nice, plentiful pick of Penne Pasta with sweet Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, and marinara sauce or Pastrami Cured Salmon with Italian potato salad as your appetizer. Delicious and unique! We want both.

After you make that challenging decision, there’s more. The entree. The crux. The headliner. And we got two heavy weights in the ring here.

Pan Seared Salmon with Dijon mustard honey glaze and panko over a lentil ragu

or

Boneless Short Ribs of Beef over gnocchi in tomato sauce.

Italian Restaurants in Atlantic City 2

Again, we want both.

Luckily, you’re done with the strenuous choices when you get to dessert. Chocolate Covered Cannoli Cake for all! Which sounds amazing and pretty much perf. Aren’t you in love with the $29 Spring Menu from Casa Di Napoli at Showboat Atlantic City?!

Try it out Mondays & Tuesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays 5 p.m. to 9 p.m…..so….do you want a little something extra? Make it an even better night with a room, round of drinks and late checkout starting at just $39! You’re welcome! Happy Friday!

New Menu Items at Scarduzio’s Steak & Sushi Lounge At Showboat Atlantic City!

Guys!

Scarduzio’s Steak & Sushi Lounge at Showboat Atlantic City has added some new deliciousness to their Dinner Menu for you. That’s right, we’re talking new appetizers and salads, meats, seafoods AND sides!

For example, take this incredible Herb Crusted Chilean Sea Bass.

Atlantic City steakhouses 1

The sea bass is over shellfish risotto in a lobster tomato fennel butter.

Or the Diver Sea Scallops.

Atlantic City steakhouses 2

Drizzled in a sweet chili sauce with avocado and golden beets. Noms. Melted in our mouths.

What can we say? Our party was feeling particularly fishy that night.

As far as the carnivorous side of things go, you can order a 24 oz. Center Cut, Dry Age Porterhouse from Scarduzio’s now! And per Chef Chris’ usual high standards, these meats come from DeBragga in New York City. We were trying to watch our girlish figure that night, but should there be a time we have a rather large craving for a porterhouse, we know where we’re going!

Over on the lighter side of the menu, we saw a couple new appetizers: Heirloom Tomatoes (Buratta Cheese, Charred Green Onions & Aged Balsamic Basil Oil) and the Broiled Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with artichokes and grain mustard in a beer butter sauce. A couple of new side dishes also popped up – the Honey Glazed Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Gratin Of Brussel Sprouts. Both very healthy and flavorful.

So there are a couple different dinner options for you at Scarduzio’s Steak & Sushi Lounge, but be sure to stop by when you’re in the mood for sushi too! Sushi is an art form at this place and you can get sashimi or nigiri samplers, a multitude of beautiful rolls (both pictured below) and more!

Be sure to stop by Scarduzio’s at Showboat Wednesdays & Thursdays 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. They have everything and anything you could possibly want for dinner!

The Top 5 Atlantic City Spots We Can’t Wait to Feel Springy At This Spring

Happy Spring! We made it! Now the weather just has to catch up. While we’re waiting for it to do so, we thought it would be a good time to show you some of our favorite Atlantic City spots we will soon (hopefully) be able to enjoy during this spring season! Ready?

 

1. The Courtyard at Harry’s Oyster Bar at Bally’s

Atlantic City restaurants

We really can’t wait to sit out here again, enjoy a nice breeze off the water, sip a drink and check out all the passerbys on the Atlantic City boardwalk! Great food and prime people watching…who could ask for anything more?!

2. The Award Winning Golf Course at the Atlantic City Country Club

Atlantic City Country Club

Get a little competitive while you’re gallivanting around outside in this TDB spring weather! Even if you’re not really into the game, everyone should play golf at the Atlantic City Country club at least once in his or her lifetime. It’s historic. The term “birdie” was invented here. And all the cool people have done it…like Adam Levine…People’s current Sexiest Man Alive.

3. Worship Surf Bar at Showboat Atlantic City

Atlantic City Bars

This sweet, laid back, gnarly establishment usually opens toward the end of spring when the summer weather starts creeping up on us. Even though it doesn’t feel like it, this time of year will seriously be here before we know it! Keep Worship Surf Bar in mind when it arrives. Feel the sun on your face at Atlantic City’s only surf bar.

4. The Pool Deck at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City

Harrah's pool

Excuse the butts. This photo was taken during the 2013 Sweat AC Festival. As you can see, you can get your exercise on on the pool deck or relax outside in your own private cabana. And when you feel hot enough head back down the stairs and into The Pool to take a dip! Perfect spring break feel!

5. The Bikini Beach Bar at Bally’s Atlantic City

Get Up On The Luck at Caesars, Harrah’s Resort, Showboat & Bally’s Atlantic City

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, we took to Caesars, Harrah’s Resort, Showboat and Bally’s Atlantic City Facebook channels to ask you your favorite luck rituals before you hit the tables or machines at your favorite Atlantic City casino and found some reoccurring themes. Check them out:

 

1. Lucky Charms 

No, no the cereal. Some of you have the real deal. For example, Debra carries a little Buddha all around Caesars while Michael places a little red bunny charm atop of the one credit button on his video poker machines at Bally’s.

 

2. Rubbing Stuff

Don’t get all crazy on us. You know this happens in weird ways where luck is concerned. It’s closely related to carrying lucky charms of course, but some of you have to take it a step further with the touching. Andrea likes to rub an old Bally’s dollar coin before she starts a slot game and Carol likes to pet her puppy’s head right before heading out to the gaming floor at Showboat. She thanks the Pet Stay program for this. You’re welcome! ;)

 

3. Alcohol 

Are you surprised? Gotta psych yourself up, right?! Robert likes kicking back a Rusty Nail (Drambuie & Scotch) before a game of cards and Michelle always starts it off right with a shot at Mountain Bar! Go get ‘em!

 

And if you’re lucky enough to be around Caesars Atlantic City, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, Showboat Atlantic City and/or Bally’s Atlantic City on this luckiest day of the year, you can also enjoy some other special perks:

St. Patrick's Day

  • St. Patrick’s Day Meals (March 14-17) Corned Beef & Cabbage at Cafe Roma and The Palace Court Buffet at Caesars and 6ix A Bistro at Bally’s
  • St. Patrick’s Day Parade Pre-Party at Surf Bar at Showboat (March 15th, 11 AM) – Enjoy Pub Burgers, Grilled Garlic Sausage, Irish Nacho’s, Shepherd’s Pie, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Irish Car Bombs, Guinness and Jamisons while warming up for and during the 2014 Atlantic City St. Patrick’s Day Parade! (Parade start time is 1 PM).
  • $5 Guinness and $4 Jamison at Toga Bar at Caesars, 12 Bar, Spirit Bar and Crossroads of House Of Blues at Showboat, and Mountain Bar and Lobby Bar at Bally’s (March 17-20).

What’s your luck ritual? Why not test it out around St. Patrick’s Day at Caesars Atlantic City, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, Showboat Atlantic City and Bally’s Atlantic City?!
