Atlantic City Wire: Revel Opens, Food & Wine Fest Releases Lineup

By James Mulcahy
Atlantic City just kicked off its summer season over Memorial Day weekend, and the Jersey Shore town has upped the ante in the food department this year (get it - gambling metaphor!?). Revel resort and casino had its big debut, and Beyonce's inaugural concert was reportedly off the hook. But foodies were there to enjoy restaurants from Marc Forgione, Alain Allegretti and other big name chefs. Will this be enough to slow down the tourism slump that the town has experienced of late? We shall see...

Revel isn't the only game in town though, the lineup for the annual Atlantic City Food and Wine festival was also just released. This fest kicks off on Thursday, July 26 and will feature big names like Paula Deen, Anne Burrell, Tyler Florence and Nadia G. There are tastings and parties at all four of the Caesar's properties - the shindig usually sells out, so if you're fixin' to head to, you'll want to buy tickets now. Get more info here.
