So sad to see you go. Countless memories and rowdy nights. By far my favorite.
#AtlanticCity loses another casino, but in my eyes more importantly… we now have no #HouseOfBlues. I’m lucky enough to work for multiple facets of culture in this city so I get to see a lot of the good…but this hurts. Seeing #ShowboatAC dark truly made my heart heavy. Tomorrow we lose #Revel, the most ambitious project the city has ever seen and by the end of September, #TrumpPlaza will close it’s doors.
If you’re reading this, PLEASE remember that there are MANY great parts of this city. There were too many casinos to begin with, this is a step, albeit painful in the right direction. Less casinos means less competition and better distribution of funds…We are better off as a destination resort town WITH casinos, not just a #Casino town.
Go to your local bars, nightclubs, small shops. Help the culture sustain and if you’ve been coming here for years, don’t stop. Look into the countless places to go as sights to see. Look BEYOND the casinos. We are home to #MissAmerica pageant. @ACBeerFest, the largest on the east coast. #ACSeafoodFest in less than 2 weeks that expects 30,000 people. There’s history, there’s sights and there are truly great people.
I may be only one person here and I know I’m not alone, but I myself would rather drown than let this city sink. We’re still here and plenty of us. Walking the boardwalk it was packed tonight. That’s a good sign.
We’re not dead. Not by a longshot.
