Sunday, our original shopping day, turned out to be a rainy mess. It was so horrible out we refused to step one foot out the door all day. Instead, by stroke of luck and irony, MTV decided to bless us with a Jersey Shore marathon. I had never seen the show before (secretly protesting it) and I instantly fell in love and completely understand the hype and appeal. This is such a guilty pleasure.
Eventually, it was time to head out for dinner at PF Chengs. They had a special promotion going on (may be an ongoing deal?) that for 2 people and $40 you got 2 soups, 1 app, 2 entrees, 2 desserts. At this point we were 6 people and decided to split into 3 "couples". It worked out perfectly! The food is a more upscale, yet mainstream Americanized Chinese fare. I really enjoyed and would highly recommend the crab wonton, chicken lettuce wraps, honey shrimp (real stand out winner), and mongolian beef.
We spent the rest of the night gambling and I sat at my first real poker table! It was really fun and such a great experience because though I lost, I now have the confidence to do it again (maybe with a little more money).
The next day we finally had our chance to venture to the fantastic outlet shopping that Atlantic City offers. We got some amazing ridiculous deals at the Banana Republic. Prices at or below $10 for really cute shirts for me and jeans and boxers for the hubby at $40 and under $2 respectively.
After shopping, we ventured to the famous sub shop Whitehouse Subs "since 1946". We got a regular steak sandwich and were amazed when they took out an ENTIRE Italian baguette (over 2 ft long). It hit the spot after a hard day of shopping ;)
That concludes our three-part series of the Atlantic City Birthday Weekend. Until next time!
