Contemplating last minute ideas for this weekend? Well, you’re in luck. There are a few exciting events happening this weekend in Atlantic City, I think might help. Below is a list of some ideas, and of course I saved my most favorite idea for last. Keep reading. I will admit, I’m still so happy excited to witness the city, and it’ business inhabitants thriving again after such a long, and painfully drawn out Schmovid pandemic. But! As we know, life goes on. I'm rambling. Let’s dive in.

Performing live at Ovation Hall, at Ocean Casino Resort, is Aaron Lewis. Lewis an American musician who is best known as the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and founding member of the rock band Staind, with whom he released seven studio albums. Since 2010, he has pursued a successful solo career in country music with his debut EP Town Line, which was released in 2011. Lewis' first full-length solo release, The Road, was released by Blaster Records in 2012. For more information and to reserve your tickets go to

Over at The Music Box, at Borgata, you can check out Australian-English soft rock duo, Air Supply. Consisting of English-born singer-songwriter and guitarist Graham Russell and Aussie lead vocalist Russell Hitchcock, Air Supply had a succession of hits worldwide, including eight top-ten hits in the United States in the early 1980s. They formed in 1975 and have included various accompanying musicians and singers. For more information and tickets go to

American singer and songwriter Peabo Bryson is coming to the Tropicana Showroom with special guest Oleta Adams this Saturday at 8:00 pm. Bryson a two- time Grammy award winner with songs such as “Feel the Fire” and “Can You Stop the Rain”, and he is guaranteed to put on a performance you do not want to miss! For more information and tickets go to

Desperately in need of a laugh or two? Or maybe five? Check out the world-famous Celebrity Theater located inside The Claridge Hotel, and now permanent home for Atlantic City Comedy Club, to see some of the most talked about up-and-coming comedians, as well as those established in the industry. Catch the funniest comedians from New Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York right here in the Claridge Hotel! Your favorite comedians from late night TV, popular podcasts, and radio personalities headline the showroom each and every weekend. This Saturday’s talent lineup consists of Michael Verdi, Brendan Donegan, Michelle Tomko and David James. For more information and to reserve your table go to

And lastly, ((insert thundering drum roll here)) something I mentioned a couple weeks ago, an event of the most epic proportions is FINALLY here: Wing Wars! You must know how unbelievably excited I am for this. And not just my dream of steam-rolling through the ballroom with my head flip-topped open and inhaling as many wings as inhumanly possible. But it’s not just my stomach that drives this excitement. More than 15 South Jersey eateries, bars and restaurants will compete for ultimate wing supremacy at Atlantic City Weekly’s Wing Wars V Noon to 4 p.m. this Saturday. It’s an all-you-can-eat wing extravaganza, presented by 103.7 WMGM Rocks, and your favorite Communications Director ((and... your only communications director)) will be there, representing ((shameless work plug)) The Deauville Inn! Tickets for the 1 to 4 p.m. session are just only $30, and admission includes unlimited wings and dipping sauces from all the competitors. Live music provided by Robert's Basement, killer drink specials, giveaways, contests and more. Is there anything more glorious? What are you waiting for? Get your tickets RIGHT NOW at And don’t forget to stop by and visit me! Hopefully before you see me sprawled out on the ballroom floor, picking at the chicken bones like a savage while crying hysterically. It won’t be a pretty sight. It's a sight that may potentially consume you in an awesome wave. And it will stay with you. Lurking in the crevices of your mind. Clinging to you like a foot fungus…

Until next week, Folks! #stayjerseystrong
