The real Miss America pageant, where contestants will attempt to win over the judges in the Lifestyle and Fitness, Evening Wear, Talent and On Stage Question portions of the competition, will take place at Boardwalk Hall this Sunday. However, you can recreate your own pageant of sorts by hitting these four Miss A-inspired spots this weekend.(tncms-asset)93207612-8f28-11e7-9a35-00163ec2aa77(/tncms-asset)

1. Lifestyle and Fitness. Show of your own swimwear strut this weekend at Laguna Grill & Rum Bar. OK, you might not want to only wear your bathing suit, but Laguna will certainly put you in a beachy state of mind with its ocean side bar, nestled among peaceful palm trees. This Saturday, Sept. 9, catch Bruce Springsteen tribute band E Street Shuffle at Laguna for a 6 p.m. show. Located at 1400 Ocean Ave., Brigantine. Go to for more info.

2. Talent. There are a couple places in the area that give wanna be stars the chance to show off their musical chops, but Planet Rose at Tropicana Atlantic City is fully dedicated to the art of karaoke. Its massive song list is sure to suit every kind of karaoke singer — rappers, power ballad crooners, everyone. Located at 2801 Pacific Ave., Atlantic City. Go to for more info.(tncms-asset)8885a868-9247-11e7-a2c4-00163ec2aa77(/tncms-asset)

3. On Stage Question. The Miss America pageant isn’t all about beauty. The contestants get to show off their brains during the On Stage Question portion of the pageant. You can impress your friends with your own Q&A of sorts at Hi Point Pub’s Thursday night Quizzo competitions. Beginning at 7 p.m., drink and dine while you attempt to beat other teams in a battle of wits. Located at 5 N. Shore Road, Absecon. Go to Hi Point Pub on Facebook.(tncms-asset)92616472-923c-11e7-b77f-00163ec2aa77(/tncms-asset)

4. Evening Wear. With its elegant dining room and beautiful view of the ocean, Capriccio at Resorts Casino Hotel is the perfect place to rock your evening wear. Capriccio is the longest-running casino restaurant in Atlantic City, and though it’s been renovated and well-kept over the years, it maintains its opulent feel with marble pillars, spotless linens and fabulous Italian food. Even the servers are dressed to the nines, and offer a unique European style service. Located at 1133 Boardwalk, Atlantic City. Go to
