Great post. I came across it while looking up Atlantic City Entertainment. My sister is about to turn 21 and I wanted to take her to Atlantic City for a few days. I had no idea there was so many things going on there on St. Patty's day. I will definitely have to make the trip next year, sounds like so much fun. Thanks for sharing!
