Things to Do: Tropicana Casino & Resort, Atlantic City, New Jersey

Tropicana Casino & Resort  2831 Boardwalk, (800) 345-8767.  2,079 rooms.  24 restaurants, 17 bars.  Indoor/outdoor pool; fitness center; health spa.  The original Tropicana Casino and Resort was located in the heart of Old Havana in Cuba and was the queen of Havana casinos.  Some of the magic has been transported to Atlantic City--this casino has the town’s most slots, largest showroom, and only IMAX Theatre, plus the popular Boogie Nights club.  And it’s good with kids. 

●The Quarter  This vibrantly colored, 3-story streetscape embraces an Old Havana atmosphere.  It has a wide selection of restaurants and bars, an array of entertainment and nightlife venues, chic shops, and a luxury spa—but no gaming.
Carmine’s  (609) 572-9300.  L-D daily.  This is a branch of NYC’s well-known family-style Italian restaurant. 

FIN  D W-Sun.  This beautifully appointed seafood restaurant features an underwater theme that includes glittery sea glass murals, and it also offers a dramatic ocean view over the dunes.  In addition to a raw bar and sushi bar, you’ll find creative salads, entrees like fergola Sarda (a Sardinian pasta similar to couscous) with fresh seafood, and desserts such as cheesecake with colorful seasonal berries.  Outdoor seating is available at above-street lamp level.

●The Comedy Stop  This small stand-up comedy club is rated by some as #1 on the East Coast.
