Review of Boogie Nights hotspot in Atlantic City
casino blog
26 August 2011


Boogie Nights is Atlantic City’s hotspot that everyone loves to go to especially when it comes to getting them back ‘into the groove’ of 70’s and 80’s dance music. The club has everyone boogying and getting down to serious dancing the moment they step through the door. The whole atmosphere of the club is to keep everyone on their toes.

Not knowing what to expect next is part of the thrill of Boogie Nights and they have some very entertaining ideas, including streakers who dart across the dance floor unexpectedly, just to keep their customers laughing and surprised at the antics that go on during the music filled nights. Expect to see big ‘afros’ and bell bottom trousers with platform shoes an absolute must have on your feet accessory.

This vibrant night club won the 2009 Atlantic City Nightlife Award for the ‘Best Retro Club’ and ‘Best Place to Bring a Date’ and it has not looked back since. Located at Resorts, the club offers one of the most entertaining nights out in Atlantic City that anyone would ever want to have during their trip to this amazing fun filled nightlife oriented city.

New art district plans to revitalize Atlantic City
casino blog
20 August 2011


Well known for its casinos, hotel, bars and restaurants Atlantic City has plans to upgrade other aspects of the town which includes new residential and commercial developments but more importantly for some people, the plan means that the arts district and educational and medical facilities are going to get a make-over as well.

It goes without saying that the gambling and tourist areas will get a revamp and the project manager of The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, Jeremy Sunkett, announced that the whole concept of this revitalization program is to bring greater numbers of the public to smaller areas with a view to generating a greater demand for services such as restaurants, shops, businesses in general and much more.

The idea is to create districts where the public will be able to walk, instead of driving, to the places that they want or need to get to, thus opening up business opportunities for retailers as well as serving the people who come to Atlantic City more efficiently.

Charlie Sheen Pulls Atlantic City Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour
casino blog
22 June 2011


Charlie Sheen it would appear can either give a performance that will thrill and entertain an audience or if you are one of the unlucky people who saw his show in Atlantic City, he can give a performance that will leave you feeling so bored you just have to leave the theatre.

The reviews after the show were dire. The words ‘boring’ and ‘monotonous’ were on just about every reviewers lips and Sheen proved once again that sometimes he just does not have either anything of interest to say or share with an audience who thought that they were coming to get entertained by this world famous now maybe ex actor.

The critiques were brutal and to some extent Sheen did deserve this rather vitriolic reaction from them. He had after all disappointed a lot of people who had paid quite a hefty price for a ticket to be entertained by him. But there were signs on the wall that not everyone rates Sheen in this new role of entertainer that he is sometimes good at but then very often not, as there were plenty of empty seats right from the start of his performance and there were a lot more after the interval with many of the audience not even bothering to return to get bored a second time round in the same evening.

Will the recession hit Las Vegas more than Atlantic City?
casino blog
08 May 2011

Las Vegas and Atlantic City have been hit by the recession but whether one gambling destination has been hit more than the other is a tricky question to answer. Smaller resorts like the casinos that are located near or on Indian reservations, city centre casinos and riverboat casinos have been less affected by the recession as they do not rely so much on people coming for overnight trips as do the larger casino resorts such as Las Vegas or Atlantic City. The recession has made people think twice about travelling further afield to a resort thus it has hit both Las Vegas and Atlantic City in a much more dramatic manner.

In an attempt to attract people to Las Vegas and Atlantic City both of these multi-million dollar areas of the gambling world have increased their comps (free stuff) making a trip there more inviting to the visitor. Some casinos however, will have only increased their comps on slot machines which means that if a visitor wins $100 in one day the casino will increase this fives times to $500. Other casinos tighten their belts when a recession hits and reduce their comps on all levels of gaming.

Unlike the casinos in the Caribbean who rely on the seasons for their revenue in the gambling industry, Las Vegas and Atlantic City need the short term visitor to keep their wheels turning and both of these resorts are not betting on great returns since the recession hit them.

Legends in Concert - One of the longest running shows
casino blog
12 October 2009

Legends in Concert - One of the longest running showsLegends in Concert is a show that’s been running in Vegas for 26 years. Fortunately for the show’s producers, it’s still wildly popular and showing no signs of slowing down. There are just too many legends to imitate, so the show may never go under. It was started in 1983 and first performed at the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino.

The original creator was John Stuart Productions, but the show is currently owned and produced by On Stage Entertainment. Legends in Concert has shows all across the US, including Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Branson, Missouri; Atlantic City, New Jersey, and more locations.

The show takes the idea of celebrity impersonators to a whole new level. It’s truly fantastic. You get to see imitators that look and sound exactly like the stars they’re supposed to be, and to top it off, the stage production is absolutely stellar. Legends in Concert is hands-down the best impersonation show going in Vegas today.
