    Harrah's tries to be all things to everyone...so they cater to all ages groups and do none of it well. I think I mentioned that I was in there on 4/11/19. The music playing was 'She wore bluuue velvet'. That's music my grandmother would enjoy...I'm retired, my grandmother would be about 120 yo now. Retirees today grew up listening to Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and The Who. You want to play music for the older set, that's the music to play.

    Haha I had to say something, I just get tired of the same people myopically bashing something that in all likelihood, they've never experienced before. I have friends who also laugh and bash it when I go to AC, but I tell them the same thing, don't knock it (or anything for that matter) until you try it. For my bachelor party, which was in AC, all the people I brought who hadn't gone prior ended up having a blast. My wife is from NJ originally so perhaps I'm a bit biased but some of the most authentic and down to earth people I've ever met are from there. Plus, I've never had a better hoagie than White House Subs, their cheesesteak is at least 2-3 meals lol.

    As long as I'm able, I'll keep going back to support the good people in that town. Hopefully I get to meet a few VMBers there one day!

    Wait until they trot Bobby Vinton out the next time you're there.

    @lithium78 maybe you misunderstood me, but that's exactly what I was saying. The reference was to those that said Harrah's was losing people to Hard Rock and I was suggesting there is likely no way to get those people back because Hard Rock has all the entertainment and in the summer they have the beach.

    At Eden Bar, there's usually some sort of band playing there every weekend. In fact, good luck finding a video poker machine any time after 9pm at that bar lol. But, overall, we're very much agreed. I do think Harrah's has WAYY better dinning options

    You gotta check out Eden Lounge on May 10, the band “Don’t Call Me Francis” is playing. A South Jersey based cover band that also plays at Golden Nugget’s Deck bar.
