One new attraction that may have slipped under the radar is the elegant entertainment at the popular Sunday Brunch (10am-2pm; $44.95) at the property’s highly acclaimed restaurant Capriccio.
Pianist Ron Powell, pictured, has been warming the hearts of Sunday brunchers and filling the fine-dining room with a gorgeous mix of jazz standards, pop and show tunes, and even some R&B classics this summer.
“I try to play for the audience,” says Powell, who is a retired teaching lawyer and hails from Connecticut.
Gomes then invited Powell to play inside the restaurant for the weekly Sunday brunch. It’s been a smash success ever since with Powell gaining a name for himself as a stellar musician throughout the resort town.
Check him out any Sunday. Call 344-6000 for reservations.
When the season ended, I focused my energy and attention on returning to the classroom. I'm currently teaching Media Law and Ethics at Stockton College in Galloway, New Jersey. A 20 minute drive from Atlantic City.
And, oh yes, I'm still playing poker both in Atlantic City and in my own back yard at Foxwoods.
