» Steve Wynn and Donald Trump Partners? Read Below
Casino mogul Steve Wynn wants to bring Las Vegas-style glitz and glamour to Atlantic City by teaming up with his former archrival Donald Trump for a $3 billion Mega Resort that could dominate the heart of the Boardwalk. “Steve and I are talking about something very exciting and very interesting,” Trump said in an interview Wednesday. “It would be great for the state of New Jersey and Atlantic City, but it’s very preliminary.”

Trump declined to disclose details, but people familiar with the plans said the aging Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino would be demolished to make way for a gigantic development project. It would encompass as many as four blocks of Boardwalk property from Missouri to Texas avenues and stretch out to Atlantic Avenue on the land side, at the foot of the Atlantic City Expressway. The Trump-Wynn casino project also would include a hotel tower rising 50 stories over the beachfront and perhaps an entertainment pier jutting far into the ocean. A new tunnel underneath Pacific Avenue would be considered as one of the roadway improvements needed to accommodate casino construction. Wynn, who is renowned for transforming the Las Vegas market with mega Casinos such as Bellagio, Mirage and most recently the $2.7 billion Wynn Las Vegas, wants to make a spectacular return to Atlantic City. He left in 1987 after selling the Golden Nugget, now known as the Atlantic City Hilton Casino Resort.

The Trump Plaza Casino site would put Wynn in the middle of the Boardwalk and give him a prime spot off the expressway corridor, the main entrance into the city. Earlier, Wynn met with Gov. Jon S. Corzine to discuss the possibility of redeveloping the city’s former Bader Field airport, but was told that site would take too long and prove too costly to convert for a casino.

NYC to Atlantic City Express Train (Fall of 2008)

Latest information about the ACES Train NY to Atlantic City!
New Train Service New York City to Atlantic City Planned – Atlantic City’s casinos, already betting on the enticing effects of fancy shopping and high-end restaurants, will try to woo more customers by offering direct train service to and from New York City. The 2 1/2-hour Atlantic City Express Service will run from Fridays to Sundays between Atlantic City and Penn Station starting late next year. The board of New Jersey Transit approved a three-year trial of the service Monday. The casinos are going after New York City gamblers who don’t have cars, part of a market that falls between high rollers who arrive in limousines and the lower-stakes bettors who take buses. Prices and schedules for the service will be determined over the next year, said George Warrington, NJ Transit’s executive director.  Atlantic City-bound travelers coming from New York by train must now ride the Northeast Corridor line to Trenton, take a local train to Philadelphia and then transfer to the Atlantic City rail line. The new service would not stop in Philadelphia. It would have a limited number of stops, including one or more in New Jersey, which will be determined by the casino industry in consultation with NJ Transit. Three trains would run on Fridays, eight on Saturdays and seven on Sundays, Warrington said.  The new train service is coming at a time when casinos are investing millions in Atlantic City.

» Resorts Atlantic City 
Show-time Tabou Bistro & Nightclub.
Resorts Casino Atlantic City is expected to open July 28th 2006 the "Showtime Tabou – Bistro & Nightclub". which originated with two locations in Quebec, Canada, will blend entertainment with a restaurant and nightclub, but this concept has a twist: the people serving you all night will be the ones performing, too.

Located in the former Camelot restaurant, the 150-seat "Showtime Tabou" will begin each evening by serving its guests mid-priced American cuisine with a French Canadian flair from 5 to 10 p.m. The entertainment for the dining hours will feature live music and vocal performances, including crooners. "We’ll have a piano player and someone singing Frank Sinatra and dinner music," says founder Stephan Genest. "It will be a relaxed atmosphere for the dinner hours." After 10 p.m., and going to 4 a.m., "Showtime Tabou" will transform to a nightclub that will cater to the younger set, including performances that include classic rock and alternative rock and dance favorites provided by a DJ. There will also be specialty acts performing "Cirque-style" routines. The nightclub will offer a cool vibe since a DJ will constantly provide dance music. However, every half hour, three different performers will leave their posts as bartenders, servers and other tasks to take the stage to offer the crowd a truly unique experience. The variety of entertainment is impressive. We bring in dancers, percussionists, singers, rock bands, crooners, disco, whatever we can to attract a diverse crowd. It’s the kind of place that a group of people with different tastes can come and enjoy. By the time the night is over, everyone will hear or see something that they will enjoy.
