The “topping off” celebration at 11 a.m. on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City will include the placement of the ceremonial last beam for the LandShark Bar & Grill. The bar and restaurant will stretch 200 feet over the beach on the former site of the old Steeplechase Pier.

LandShark Bar & Grill is a major part of the new dining, retail, entertainment and casino attractions opening this summer in a partnership between Resorts and singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, owner of the Margaritaville brand.
