For Whom the Bell Tolls: It Tolls for the Atlantic City Hilton

Times are tough in Atlantic City -- that's a given. But apparently it's so bad for the Atlantic City Hilton that they're shutting down parts of the casino. Would I be shocked if they shut the whole thing down? No, I would not.

According to the Press of Atlantic City, the Hilton, which is the southernmost casino on the Boardwalk, has already shuttered their poker room and stopped Sunday brunches, and rumors are that it'll be shutting down Peregrines', the Dizzy Dolphin bar their VIP players lounge.

Is it sad? Of course it is anytime a business goes under, but the Hilton has always been retro, and not in a good way. The only saving grace has been the Dizzy Dolphin, which is a ridiculous bar shaped like a ship but indoors. It was one of those weird things about AC that I would tell people to check out if they asked me.

So go get a drink and recreate that scene from the Titanic while you can.

Thank you for the tip, John!
