Atlantic City isn't dead, after all! Or at least it won't be on Memorial Day Weekend, when the new mega resort/casino Revel Hotel is set to open. In addition to a number of restaurants, bars, and entertainment facilities (Beyoncé will be headlining three concerts there on opening weekend), Revel Hotel announced the resort's finishing touch-- a massive nightclub and day club from Las Vegas based Angel Management group.
Atlantic City's been pretty lame, I mean, tame in recent years (and it's certainly no Vegas), so it'll be interesting to see if the Jersey Shore can handle whatever Angel Management has in store.
