When we debuted 50 Bites last year, we expected it to be a big hit. We were wrong. It was a phenomenon that took over Atlantic City for 50 days.

So we had our work cut out for us to top last year’s inaugural 50 Bites. And we think we did it.

This year’s version is titled 50 Bites + for a reason. Not only do we have 46 restaurants in Atlantic City, but we added another 16 throughout Atlantic County. And of the 46 in A.C., 10 of them weren’t on last year’s list — so that’s 26 new restaurants this year!

That means, instead of 50 Bites for 50 Days for 50 Bucks, this year 50 Bites passholders will receive 62 Bites for 50 Days for 50 Bucks!

Consider this more than 50 Things to Eat in Atlantic County Before You Die — the ultimate foodie list! We have all the bases covered from subs and pizza to ravioli and lobster, from local legends to celebrity chefs, from Cuba and Mexico to Scotland and Japan and back again.

Unlike most promotions, where publications make the list and send you on your way to conquer, this is truly interactive. Shout out to Golden Nugget execs for helping mold this idea in Year One.

Here’s how it works: starting Thursday, Sept. 22, go to ACWeekly.com/50Bites to purchase an all-access lanyard and pass that entitles you to a sample of every item on this list in all 62 restaurants one time through the 50-day period for $50 — two for $90 — with a portion of all proceeds going to the South Jersey Chefs Association and the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Southern Branch.

Once you order, we can mail them to you ($6 shipping fee added on) or you can pick them up, beginning Oct. 13, at The Press of Atlantic City office in Pleasantville or The Iron Room in Atlantic City. Passes will be available for pickup about a week before the event starts. You can also buy them at The Iron Room (cash only), 648 N. Albany Ave., Atlantic City; The Press of Atlantic City, 1000 W. Washington Ave., Pleasantville; the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Southern Branch, 6795 E. Black Horse Pike, Egg Harbor Township; Golden Nugget’s Essentials, 600 Huron Avenue & Brigantine Boulevard, Atlantic City; or either of the Atlantic City Visitor Centers inside Boardwalk Hall and on the Atlantic City Expressway. Please keep an eye at ACWeekly.com/50Bites for more details.

Then, from Oct. 13 to Dec. 1, enjoy your ultimate food crawl. Just go in, show them your pass and they will give you the portion and check the box as validation. While at the restaurants, the pass will entitle you to specials that only passholders can take advantage of, including reduced prices on drinks, food items and upgrades to full portions.

Plus, many places will offer 50 Bites+ cardholders deals and discounts on other items, such as Tropicana, which will provide those with lanyards $4 beers, $5 house wines and $6 house cocktails in Tango's and 10 North, as well as free admission to Boogie Nights on Thursdays and Fridays during the run. And Izakaya at Borgata will offer $7 Sake Mojitos to help you wash down your Bite there.

In addition to being tons of fun for a couple, a group or even a solo dining explorer, it’s a tremendous value and a great gift. For less than $1 a bite you will get items that have a value of up to nearly $10 each.

Just go to ACWeekly.com, download the AC Weekly app and keep checking for updated information, offers and pickup locations.
