Over twenty restaurants, bars and eateries – including several newcomers – have teamed up for the 6th annual Taste of The Quarter at Tropicana. Scheduled for Monday, August 26, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., this signature event benefits the United Way of Atlantic County.

 

“Unlike other food events that take place in Atlantic City, Taste of The Quarter treats food lovers to an international menu in one convenient setting,” said Steve Callender, General Manager for Tropicana. “Adding five of Tropicana’s brand new outlets and extending the event throughout the Marketplace in addition to The Quarter will make for an even bigger and better guest experience.”

 

Book an overnight stay on Monday, August 26th for $149 and Tropicana will include in a pair of tickets for Taste of the Quarter and $10 in free slot play! Call 1-800-345-8767 and use booking code TTASTE3. Rate does not include tax and fees.

 

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Taste of the Quarter benefit the United Way of Atlantic County funding 60 local programs aimed at improving lives of Atlantic County residents.  These programs provide services such as adult literacy education; emergency assistance for food, clothing and shelter; after school programming and pediatric free health services.

Taste of the Quarter is an event for those 21 and older. Guests will enjoy a lively festival atmosphere and a tempting collection of appetizers, main courses, desserts, wines, coffee and cocktails. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event. Advance purchase is recommended as this event tends to sell out. All proceeds are donated to United Way of Atlantic County. Tickets can be purchased at the IMAX Box Office, located on the third floor of The Quarter, www.Ticketmaster.com, via phone at 1.800.745.3000 or the United Way office.

Frampton's Guitar Circus - 2013 North American Tour:  Grammy Award winner and beloved guitar hero Peter Frampton will take center stage on a tour across North America featuring his band, a host of musical icons and legendary guitarist comrades.  On a nightly basis Frampton and his special guests will showcase their own songs and many fan favorites and the encores will include Peter joining the 'guitar circus' for various collaborations. 

Following his critically acclaimed new album Thank You Mr. Churchill, Grammy®-winning guitarist and songwriter Peter Frampton will embark on a world tour this June celebrating his multi-platinum-selling live album Frampton Comes Alive!, performing the legendary album in its entirety. The three-hour show will feature a complete performance of Frampton Comes Alive! along with highlights from Frampton's catalog, including his Grammy® Award-winning instrumental album, 2006'sFingerprints.

Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history.  In 2011 Frampton embarked on a world tour celebrating the 35th anniversary of his international breakthrough album Frampton Comes Alive!  The multi-platinum selling live album sold over 6 million copies in the United States alone and spawned several hits like "Show Me The Way" and "Baby I Love Your Way."  Frampton released several major albums, including 2006's recoding Fingerprints for which he won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album. 

Over the years, B.B. King has had two number one R&B hits, 1951's "Three O'Clock Blues" and 1952's "You Don't Know Me", and four number two R&B hits, 1953's "Please Love Me" and 1954's "You Upset Me Baby", 1960's "Sweet Sixteen, Part I" and 1966's "Don't Answer The Door, Part I". B.B.'s most popular crossover hit, 1970's "The Thrill Is Gone" went to #15 pop.

But B.B. King, as well as the entire blues genre, is not radio oriented. His classic songs such as "Payin' The Cost To Be The Boss", "Caldonia", " How Blue Can You Get", "Everyday I Have The Blues" and "Why I Sing The Blues", are concert (and fan) staples.

Sonny Landreth’s 11th album, bearing the fittingly evocative title Elemental Journey, is something very different from the Louisiana slide wizard. Released on his own Landfall the album is Landreth’s first all-instrumental effort and his most adventurous work to date.
