Atlantic City is great in the summertime when the mostly Italian residents of nearby Philadelphia head over here on the weekends to lie and the beach during the day and party at night. The beaches aren’t that great, but who cares. The casinos here are as good as in Vegas or Monaco as far as them being patroned by hot chicks. Donald Trump and the Italian Mafia run all of them. Check out Trump’s jewel, the Taj Mahal and play some blackjack. If you don’t win, at least you’ll drink for free and hopefully get some “comps” to ease the hurt of losing some potential party money. The two best clubs here on the summer weekends are by far South Beach on Amherst Avenue just outside the city limits and Deja Vu on South New York Avenue. They are more or less like the clubs in Philadelphia just with freshly tanned bodies in less clothing. Be careful with the cops in this town, they are unpredictably anal at times and will hassle you for seemingly no good reason. Apparently, nobody has bothered to tell them that they’re patrolling the Sodom and Gomorrah of the East Coast, replete with hookers, pimps, gangsters and muggers. But God forbid you toss the last bite of your hot dog on the Boardwalk. Just be careful, or you’ll be wishing you had a “Get out of Jail Free” card from Monopoly.
