Atlantic City: A Fun Night On The Town

Some friends and I took another friend out to celebrate her birthday last night in Atlantic City, the city that is "Always Turned On." For those that think Atantic City is just about casinos, you're wrong. It is amazing at the number of things AC has to offer.
We started out with drinks and dinner at Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant on Atlantic Avenue. It was a bit crowded so we began by sitting at the bar and having a round of margaritas. The restaurant a bit noisey, but the food was excellent.
Then, over to The Sand Box, the beach bar at Caesars. It was before 11PM, so no cover, which is always good. A nice size decked bar, rock music played loudly from the band, but not so loud that you couldn't have conversation. Just down the beach was Trump Plaza's The Beach Bar, where another live band played its rock/top 40's music.
Then, it was off to Worship, The Club at the House of Blues in Showboat. The music was a bit loud, but your typical dance club music. We enjoyed some drinks and dancing with a crowd that probably averaged age 25. There are several other dance clubs in AC, one that I am sure will fit each peson's liking.
There is so much to do in Atlantic City these days. Within several blocks you can choose many types of enjoyment. And believe it or not, it did not cost a fortune. All the parking we did was free. (You need a players card from the casino, but that is very easy to get by just signing up a the promotion desk of the casino). The casinos now try to lure customers by offering free parking. The temperature yesterday was in the mid 90's, but the air was a bit cooler near the beach.
So give Atlantic City a try sometime. I think you'll enjoy it.
