There is so much fun to be had that I will not be able to cover it all! I will highlight my favorite moments from our latest trip. Our first stop, because we were starting our stay at Ballys, was at The Trinity Pub in The Pier Shops at Caesars. It is a great place to unwind after a long trip.
I am a fan of Outlet Malls! There is a great Outlet Center in Riverhead, NY, near my home. There is also a nice Outlet Center in Atlantic City - a two block walk from Ballys. They have great stores like Banana Rebublic, Van Heusen (I forgot to pack a dress shirt for Andrew) and UnderArmor (we needed a bunch of hunting gear).
After a fun day of shopping and gambling we were pleased to go back to Mia in Caesars for dinner - this restaurant had served us one of the best meals we've ever had. This time around, we started with Beet and Blue Cheese Salad and Asparagus Soup. Andrew had Short Ribs with Polenta and I had Brined Chicken with Panchetta and Polenta. For dessert, we enjoyed unique dishes of Butterscotch/Rosemary Pudding with Rosemary Biscotti (so different but perfect) and Tahitian Creme Brullee (yes, we cheated on our sugar ban)! This was a fine meal. (I was hesitant to use my flash - it has such a intimate feel inside this room).
After a night of sin and debauchery - which for us means Tipsy Video Poker and Penny Slots until 4 AM - we had a nice snack at The Continental in The Pier Shops. We split a BLT, Salad and Buffalo Chicken Meatballs. Now I have a new favorite - those meatballs will be eaten every time I return to AC!
After a few nights at Ballys we checked into the Borgata Casino - my Happy Place !
We had a nice lunch at The Metropolitan - the coffee shop at the Borgata. This is a great place for any meal or snack. The bartenders are fabulous! I ordered my favorite sandwich - the Angus Roast Beef Sandwich with Horseradish Sauce and Andrew had the wonderful Pastrami Sandwich. We decided to eat half of each others' orders. What a great way to do lunch! Two great flavors!
After a nice afternoon of Video Poker we took a cab over to Harrahs Casino for dinner at The Steakhouse. We have been happy each time that we ate here. Even though the waitress was snarky and annoying we enjoyed the food. The back-up staff was professional and pleasant, as usual. Andrew had a wonderful Angus Beef and Potato Soup and the Flat Iron Steak with Sweet Potato Gratin and I enjoyed an Heirloom Tomato and Maytag Blue Cheese Salad and a super Colossal Shrimp Cocktail. They also have a bread basket that includes an addictive cheese spread. It alone will keep us coming back.
Back to The Borgata for some more sin and debauchery!
