News from Around the South Jersey Shore

I'm not the only one who likes the shore in the winter -- check out this article, which shows you what Cape May has to offer in the off season.

I've been tracking this one for some time now: the Chelsea Hotel, which is a non-gaming luxury hotel in Atlantic City being put together but Curtis Bashaw, the guy behind Cape May's Congress Hall. Here's the Philadelphia Inquirer's write up of what's coming from the Chelsea, slated to open Memorial Day Weekend (expect a Jen A. Miller article about this one soon).

Speaking of Atlantic City, could Mohegan Sun be on the way?

This is a sad one: a college student died when she fell from the Tropicana parking garage.

The Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts (which runs all that Victorian stuff in Cape May) has a new leader.
Pacific Avenue in Wildwood will be getting four new restaurants, hopefully by summer.

Score one for PETA: Atlantic City will not be dressing the Boardwalk with an anti-seagull wire shield.

Here's a heartwarming dog-beats-the-odds article.

ANOTHER polar plunge? This time it's in Sea Isle City on February 16. I found out after the fact that none other than Eagles offensive tackle John Runyan (who lives in South Jersey, by the way) along with a scrum of other NFL players participated in the Wildwood polar plunge. Brrr! I might have to check out Sea Isle's to see what the fuss is all about.

1000+ people dressed in colorful and outrageous costumes, a polar bear queen that sits on a throne of ice, and if that's not enough to seal the deal, there's also an after party at La Costa.

It's an amazing time, by far my most favorite event of the year, you should really come check it out!
