And you are STILL heading to the Hamptons for beach weekends away? How sad. You are SO five minutes ago. I have a new destination for you. It’s The Chelsea in Atlantic City.
Now don’t get all attitudish on me. AC may have a terrible reputation (crime…people wasting away their retirement funds on slot machines…crime) but be bold! Choose to see beyond the obvious and shed that lemming mentality! Go to AC.
The Big H has been slaving away for more than a year on this hotel. It’s finally open, and I am shamelessly plugging it. It’s going to be great! Here are three reasons why it’s better than the Hamptons:
- It’s closer: AC is a mere 2.5 hours away. Drive out to Long Island for 2.5 hours and if you are LUCKY you’ll only have made it to Westhampton (the horror) in good traffic.
- It’s cooler: would you look at the rooms and the restaurants and the clubs and the beach amenities at the Chelsea? Where, I ask you, in the Hamptons can you dial up room service and have a tray of fried chicken delivered to you as you lounge away on a beach towel? Ah, nowhere.
- You have the chance to win millions of dollars while visiting the Chelsea! Just wander down to some other hotel to spend some time in a casino, and then stumble back to the non-casino Chelsea (much more civilized). In the Hamptons, to the contrary, you can lose a million dollars just by going out to eat.
And the beaches are just as good.
So be a trendsetter. Be an original. Don’t be a lemming. Check out AC.
