Area Treasures

Hello all,

It's been over a month since I've had the time to get back in here. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you are all ready for the Holiday Season upon us.
So today, we allocate time to discuss a couple of Area Treasures, one that has been around for some time and one that is brand new.

First, One of Atlantic City's best kept secrets is the IRISH PUB located on St. James and the boardwalk in Atlantic City. If you haven't been there for dinner, it is a must see. The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is just incredible. There are things to look at everywhere and right now it is decorated for the holidays. In the Summertime, there is also a wonderful hotel attached that will take you back in time. My description can't even explain the interesting artifacts creations that adorn both the restaurant and the hotel. It is full of life and it is definitely worth the trip to stop in. Right now they are doing wonderful holiday packages for your Christmas and holiday get- togethers. Santa's "Pot of Gold" includes a buffet of 4 hot dishes, salad, onion rings, chips & pretzels 2 drinks and gratuity for only 15.95 per person. There are also special packages for parties of all sizes! To reserve a party there, you can contact Frank at 609-344-9063....and tell them Ava sent you !

Next, we have the brand new "LIGHT" institute. This is the Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming Hospitality and Tourism. I was so honored to be at the dedication last night. If you go to my business page at FB, 4 A STAR, you can see the image that will me made into a bronze statue of Lloyd. The artist was there explaining all that goes into making a bronze statue such as that. Also discussed was the "new normal" of the gaming industry in the country and the fact that we will have a place to work on that very idea. This is part of Stockton at the building that was recently a Dolce Resort. It was wonderful meeting people from all over involved in the gaming industry, locals involved and distinguished guests.

So let me leave you with this today....enjoy your life....live your life to the fullest. You never know when that will be taken from you. Be true to yourself and to others and no matter where you are in you life.....FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS..... we were all put here to be great !

Have a wonderful holiday and we will allocate time again in the New Year!
