50 Bites is here! A month after Atlantic City Weekly’s Special Section titled 50 Bites, 50 Things You Have to Eat in Atlantic City Before You Die was published, everyone can now experience all 50 Bites from Thursday, Oct. 11, to Nov. 30 for just $50.
Unless you find me today, Wednesday, Oct. 10, and I will personally sell them to you for $35 each.
We have a fun promotion to kick off our 50 Bites. Some restaurateurs and casino execs, including the fun and clever folks at Golden Nugget Atlantic City who helped concoct the whole 50 Bites idea, will attempt to eat all 50 Bites in one day today.
One of the hardest things about going out to eat is deciding what to get. So many options, y…
Below you will find a schedule of where we hope to be with approximate times. But we will be checking in on Facebook (go to Atlantic City Weekly and Golden Nugget Atlantic City on Facebook) as our journey progresses. While we have a jitney to cart our overeating butts around town, we hope many of you decide to try to join us for the day.
But if you find me, I will sell you the passes for $35. I will accept credit cards, but cash is preferred. No checks. One place you will definitely be able to pin me down is the Golden Nugget, where we will broadcast Off The Press with Scott Cronick 4 to 6 p.m. on Newstalk 1400-AM WOND and 92.5-FM live from the Nugget’s atrium, where we will be sampling some bites from the Nugget and other restaurants.
Of course, you don’t have to do all 50 Bites in one day if you purchase one. In fact, we strongly discourage it. Take your time. Do one a day, five a day, 10 a day, whatever you choose. And remember, you have 50 days to do it.
In addition to being tons of fun for a couple, a group or even if you’re a sole dining explorer, it’s a tremendous value and a great gift. For $1 a bite, you will get items that have a value up to nearly $10 each. Try to hit all 50 places and participate in social media with the hashtag #50BitesAC and eat responsibly!
