Pamper your palate during A.C. Restaurant Week
Posted: March 03, 2016

The week your tummy and taste buds have been waiting for has finally arrived. Atlantic City Restaurant Week — which expands beyond A.C. — is back and better than ever. Still at the bargain price of $15.16 for lunch and $33.16 for dinner — OK, so they went up a penny for 2016 — you can’t afford not to try as many restaurants as possible. Practically every possible genre from Italian, Mexican and good ol’ American steakhouses to English, Asian and even Indian is included. For one week only, Sunday, March 6, to March 12, imagine yourself as Anthony Bourdain on a worldwide culinary adventure — except you don’t have to leave Atlantic County.

You know the drill — you go to a restaurant with a group of friends and immediately order up a bunch of apps from the starters menu. The bounty of starters arrives and it’s breathtaking — Buffalo chicken eggrolls, cheesesteak sliders and tower of onion rings so tall it could double as a coat rack. Before the waitress even leaves the table, you and your pals dive on them them like a hive full of angry bees on a honey-robbing grizzly bear.

The Apps Card Cometh ...
Posted: January 20, 2016

It happens all too often. You and your cuddlebug go out to eat, order up an appetizer and commence gazing into each other’s eyes. The app comes, and before you know it, your main squeeze has ravenously scarfed down five of the eight Buffalo wings that came with your order. This is obviously a blatant mathematical violation of both dining and relationship etiquette. After your dramatic outburst (“Et tu, schmoopie!?”), followed by a few tears, it slowly begins to sink in that while you have clearly been wronged, there is no real way to correct this vicious injustice without ordering a second appetizer. But who among us has the bankroll for that?

You need not feel compelled to compete or even stay relevant with the times because, at the end of the day, you have the ability to coast through the next 20 years on reputation alone.

Find out what’s 'special' at The Hi-Point Pub
Posted: October 21, 2015

The Hi-Point Pub is a true landmark on the corner of the White Horse Pike and Shore Road in Absecon that has been welcoming casino workers, tourists and hungry locals for half of a century. Brothers Raymond “Dink” and Bill Sykes first opened the Hi-Point in 1961. As skilled construction tradesmen, they built the Hi-Point along with local contractors on the side, often at night. After more than 50 years, some of today’s most favorite menu items were created during those late nights. In fact, you can thank a couple of sheet metal apprentices for the famous Hi-Point Special, a cheesesteak with tomato and bacon on a toasted Italian roll served with chips and a pickle ($6.75).
