Max Benefit

I took a quick trip to Atlantic City last night to test out the prix fix menu at Max's Steakhouse at Trump Plaza. Max's, along with its casino counterpart Roberto's, offers three courses for $35 (add an extra $5 for coffee and dessert).

Good stuff! I'm still full this morning. I've been on an oyster bent lately (the Pour House has a nice raw bar near my home), so I tried the prosciutto wrapped oysters, caesar salad and salmon. Then I went for the cheesecake, which was ambitious of me. So rich and creamy (my sister, who is soon-to-be-a-pastry-chef and soon-to-be-married, agreed).

This isn't a special promotion, either, which surprised me. Max's and Roberto's offers their deals all year. If wine's your thing, they also do a special $15 per bottle wine menu.

After all that food, I had to take a walk, so my sister and I took a quick stroll on the Boardwalk. It's still cold cold cold, but I don't mind the Boardwalk in the winter -- such a contrast to a busy summer night. We ducked into the Pier Shops at Caesars and I checked out the new selection at the LeSportsac store. Here's what I brought home with me:

Ever since I used one of their bags to research my book, I've been a fan. This is a re-creation of a 1970s style. It'll be great to sling over my shoulder while bike riding this summer!
