Brick House Pub & Grille has live music most Friday nights and a slew of other ongoing enticements throughout the fall.
Saturday sees $3.50 Pinnacle flavored-vodka drinks all day and an entertainment slate that varies between an open-mike night, DJ or live entertainment, or whatever the spirit moves management. There are two daily Happy hours — 5-7pm and 10pm-closing — that include $2 domestic drafts, $4 glasses of house wines, half-priced wings and a $7 “Brick Pretzel.”
“That’s a huge pretzel that can feed about four people,” says Dicken.
Typically Brick House stays open until at least midnight during the week and 2am on weekends, but during the summer it was not uncommon to see weekend revelry run as late as 4am.
“A lot of the chain restaurants or stores across the street [at the Hamilton Mall] close up at 11pm, and we’ll get an influx of people from there — people getting off their work shifts and coming in for drinks or a bite to eat,” says Dicken. “The number doesn’t matter, if we have the business we’ll stay open for as long as we’re allowed.”

Lately St. George’s has also bolstered its entertainment slate. Currently a revolving list of the area’s top local entertainers performs in the main bar area every Friday night, starting with mellow classics around 6pm that blend well with the dinner crowd, then morphing into a more nightlife-ish feel later in the evening.
The truth is, our region has been a live-music mecca since the early 1900s, when cats like Eubie Blake and Eddie Cantor hung out for summers and performed at local clubs. Decades later the Atlantic City jazz scene was as hot as they come, with internationally heralded performers from Billy Eckstine and Louis Armstrong playing residencies at some of the hottest clubs on the East Coast, namely the venues on Atlantic City’s fabled Kentucky Avenue — all of them are gone now — including the Club Harlem.
"The Local Music Guide is a great idea. I believe it’s very important for the musicians to work together and support each other, rather than just protect their own ‘piece of the pie.’ The South Jersey music scene seems to be growing stronger and stronger, and hopefully this guide will make it easier for all involved — clubs, fans and musicians alike — to continue that growth and bring back the ‘glory days’ once more.”

YOU COULD CALL IT A SIMPLE twist of fate that brought Christopher Dallman to rural Atlantic County-based Treasure Records. The singer-songwriter was living in Brooklyn about a year and a half ago when his manager sent a demo to Treasure's studio head Jerry Klause. The demo landed in a pile of similar packages on Klause's desk and collected dust. Meanwhile, Dallman plugged away, trying to get someone in the recording industry interested in his music. Such is the tale of many an aspiring musician. By chance, Dallman set out for Harrisburg, Pa. to attend The Millennium Music Conference a few months later. At a demo critiquing session at the conference, he sat down with Mike Newman, a recording engineer and mixing pro who had lent his talents to several Treasure Records' projects since the label got off the ground in 2001. At the conference scouting young talent, Newman happened upon a gifted songwriter living in New York by way of Milwaukee. It was Dallman. A year later his debut album, Race The Light, would become the latest release from Treasure Records. Although Atlantic County residents may not be familiar with Treasure, recording artists from all across the map of modern music...
