Food Glorious Food – there was plenty to whet your appetite and satiate your cravings at the Taste Of AC dinner I attended this June at The Loft at Harrah’s Resort.
This tasting showcased some of Atlantic City’s best food and was one of several featured experiences in a 4 four day long social media event hosted by Caesars Entertainment. The event’s hashtag was #JerseyLove and it was organized with the purpose of showing the world that the Jersey Shore is back and open for business after Super Storm Sandy.
Caesars Entertainment, the largest casino entertainment company in the world, graciously hosted our group of 40 bloggers in Atlantic City, where we were able to share a taste of the city’s famous food, wine and fun.
Caesar’s treated us to:
- A Welcome Dinner at top rated Mia’s at Caesars
- “Taste of AC” Dinner at The Loft at Harrah’s Resort
- Dancing and Drinks at the Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort
- Sunday Brunch at Nero’s at Caesars
The food was exceptional at all of these hot spots and the service was outstanding. I’m planning on returning with my husband for a weekend getaway!
“It was a pleasure hosting such an influential group of women at Caesars last weekend. We are so appreciative and thankful that they chose to stay in Atlantic City to help us raise awareness of our area after a challenging year,” said Katie Dougherty and Jerry Eisenband, spokespeople for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City.“We know many of the women traveled far and wide to be here, everywhere from Nevada and Colorado to Texas and Oklahoma, to draw attention to the resilience and remarkable beauty of the New Jersey Shore, particularly Atlantic City and its surrounding neighborhoods. We are optimistic that the shore will continue to receive a great amount of first-time guests and repeat visitors throughout the summer season,” they said.
Some of the highlights for me as FOOD LOVER . . .
Crab cake bites, Popcorn mousse with bacon crumble and amazing mini empanadas.
The Loft at Harrah’s Resort is the perfect spot for a party or any celebration. It’s a $1 million addition to The Pool After Dark with a cool vibe that will make you feel like a ROCK STAR. The Loft overlooks The Pool and encompasses the deck with a double-sided bar serving patrons inside year-round and outside when weather permits.
