About a month after Atlantic City Weekly’s Special Section titled 50 Bites+ was published, everyone can now experience all 50 Bites — 65 Bites, in fact — from Thursday, Oct. 12, to Nov. 30, for just $50.
Unless you find me, Scott Cronick, on Wednesday, Oct. 11, where I will personally sell a 50 Bites+ pass to you for only $30 each.
Some restaurateurs and casino execs, including the fun and clever folks at Golden Nugget Atlantic City who helped concoct the whole 50 Bites idea, will attempt to eat all 50 Bites (actually the 40 in Atlantic City) in one day on Wednesday, Oct. 11.
Below you will find a schedule of where we hope to be with approximate times. But we will be checking in on Facebook (go to Atlantic City Weekly and Golden Nugget Atlantic City on Facebook) as our journey progresses. Use the hashtag #50BitesAC. While we have a jitney to cart our overeating butts around town, we hope many of you decide to try to join us for the day.
But if you find me, Cronick, I will sell you a pass for $30. I'll accept credit cards, but cash is preferred. No checks. One place you will definitely be able to pin me down is at Golden Nugget, where Off The Press with Scott Cronick will be broadcasted 4 to 6 p.m. on Newstalk 1400-AM WOND and 92.5-FM live from the Nugget’s seafood restaurant The Chart House, where we will be sampling some bites from the Nugget and other restaurants, including White House Subs and others — who will bring us food so we can get all 50 Bites in.
Of course, you don’t have to do all 50 Bites in one day if you purchase a pass on Wednesday with me. In fact, we strongly discourage it. Take your time. Do one a day, five a day, 10 a day, whatever you choose. And remember, you have 50 days to do it.
In addition to being tons of fun for a couple, a group or even if you’re a sole dining explorer, 50 Bites+ is a tremendous value and a great gift. For less than $1 a bite, you will get items that have a value up to nearly $10 each. Try to hit all 65 places in Atlantic County and Ocean City, participate in social media with the hashtag #50BitesAC and eat responsibly!
