Plan your week with brunch, Beatles, a boat show and a beef

  • News

As always in this flashy, entertainment town, there are a ton of specials events going on.

To see the running list, all you need to do is click on our “Events” tab 24/7 to view all the “to dos” within 150 miles of the 08401.

We’ll let you know about the big names coming to town. But we also challenge you to support the local music scene, charity events and cultural programming.

We actually have some news that broke late Tuesday night.

Here's the beef ...

If you’ve never been to Tony’s Baltimore Grille, Wednesday is the day you should go, for lunch!

Because patrons who visit between 1 and 5 p.m. will be treated to a roast beef sandwich on the house. As with most things in Atlantic City, there’s a story behind it.

You see, TBG makes homemade roast beef. But they also are not afraid of a homegrown beef.

It seems a customer was dissatisfied with both his roast beef sandwich and the service he received at the famous establishment. Instead of allowing the restaurant a chance to make it right on the spot, he left and took to the internet. A decision he may be regretting.

The iconic place opened in 1927, and more recently became known for their employee advocacy and in-your-face social media. You can take a deep dive about the beef on TBG’s Facebook account.

The sandwich is completely complimentary if you follow five rules, including sharing a photo of your sandwich with the hashtag #DONTBETED, in honor of the Ted who sparked the giveaway.

Harrah's got talent

The Fab Four - The Ultimate Tribute is coming to Harrah’s this Friday and Saturday.

If you are a Beatles fan, this is a must see.

This concert features costume changes through the eras of the band’s lifespan as well as spot-on impersonations.

As a prelude, if you are a regular at this casino you may know some of the performers taking the stage Thursday in Harrah’s Got Talent at 6:30 p.m. Grab your $10 tickets starting at 4:30 p.m. in front of the concert venue.

Here’s your chance to root on employees that make each and every trip to the resort memorable
for you and your family.

I’ll be there rooting on my pal and award-winning table games dealer and bubbly customer service provider Toya Morton. Go Toya!

Drag yourself over to Hard Rock

For the next three Sundays, you can enjoy world-class drag with a scrumptious brunch at Atlantic City’s undisputed venue for cutting-edge entertainment.

Brunch is A Drag! Is sure to please whether you are in need of a hangover cure, one last
opulent adventure before you head home or an event to mark a milestone your crew is celebrating.

Whether you like sausage on your plate or tucked away, this brunch is served hot!

The sizzling drag is served up complete with audience games, dancing, numbers from the fabulous 80s and, of course, what diva show would be complete without a nod to Sasha Fierce.

Your meal is always served by the famous Hard Rock Café. There are new performers and numbers every week. So make this your #SundayFunday destination for the near future.

Black Art Matters is up to bat

Just in case the craps tables don’t treat you right this weekend and you wake up a little short, there is a free film screening at the Noyes Arts Garage. As part of February’s Black Art Matters program, guests can enjoy a screening and a post-show discussion of the film "The League."

"The League" is a Magnolia Pictures documentary about the Negro League in 1900s in America.

You can even hear about the Bacharach Giants, a team from Atlantic City in 1928.

I remember renting the nine-disc, Baseball documentary by Ken Burns from the Galloway Library. I found it interesting, full of colloquialisms and uniquely American. The story of the Negro League is one we should all hear. Now is your chance.

"The League" was released in 2023, is rated PG and the run time is 1 hour and 43 minutes.

Staff will be on hand providing complimentary baseball-themed snacks.

Tickets are free. But registration is required. CLICK HERE.

Show us your … rudders?

Looking into next week, it’s time to mark your calendars for the annual Atlantic City Boat Show at the Convention Center opening on Feb. 28.

Whether you find boats to be the key to freedom, the tool you use to find that perfect fishing
spot or just a big hole in the water you continually dump money into, experts will be on hand all week with advice on every kind of vessel.

I get seasick watching "Deadliest Catch" on television, so I won’t be too much help here. However, the show guide is easily accessed at the event’s website.

And just a reminder that it’s never too early in the year to make those charitable tax deductions. There’s a Captain’s Table VIP Reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 29.

Tickets are $125 and this includes admission to the boat show. This event benefits the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.

Hoping you find great adventures this weekend. If you go to any of the above events, let me know in the comments. I would love to know what your experience was.
