Something is happening in Atlantic City’s main casino venues this weekend that — barring another hurricane or some other act of God — will probably never happen again this year.
Among A.C.’s future entertainment focal points will be the legendary Brits performing their rock opera ‘Quadrophenia’ at Boardwalk Hall in 2013.
Fourteen years after his eponymous sitcom left the television airwaves following a ratings-topping nine seasons, Jerry Seinfeld has finally reached the point where his art imitates his life, and vice versa.
