Ready to hit the slopes? Located just 90 minutes from New York City, Camelback is PA’s biggest and #1 family friendly mountain. While known for the most skiable acres in the Poconos, 100% season-long snow making, #1 learn-to program, night skiing and 2 detachable high-speed quads, this winter, Camelback is introducing many new adventures. From 15 acres of new beginner trails, to two new ski-in/ski-out restaurants to a new terrain park – there are countless reasons to make Camelback YOUR mountain this winter.
Belford Brewing is among the closest ones to my home, and I’ve been there many times, however I never wrote a full review until now. The brewery opened in the Belford Junction of Middletown NJ in the summer of 2014, and since then (there were only 5 beers available first time I went there) it grew both in production and in space.
The Ocean Resorts Casino in Atlantic City hosted Gameacon 2018 for the first time, after a few years at another AC resort. Between October 19-21 Gameacon attracted to the Jersey Shore a mix of gaming enthusiasts, indie developers, vendors, interactive game providers and more! The convention floor was shared by four different attractions: The gaming “arena”, the VR games, the indie developers and the vendors.
On my Atlantic City trip yesterday, I also visited the Garden State Beer Company, which is on the White Horse Pike just off the Parkway exit 40. So it’s a convenient stop when you’re going in or out of AC. I was impressed by the size of the tasting room, which is huge, maybe one of the largest I’ve seen at a New Jersey microbrewery.
This weekend I decided to go further down South and explore more Jersey Shore breweries. On a trip to Atlantic City, I found the Hidden Sands Brewing Co which is indeed kind of hidden in Egg Harbor, but it’s right off exit 37 on the Parkway or a very small detour if you’re heading back on the AC Expressway. Hidden Sands has a nice tasting room, cozy and not too big, a friendly bar area with a TV to watch your favorite game.
Red Bank’s first microbrewery opened in mid-October 2018, and we had the pleasure of visiting it on the very first day. Located on Monmouth St next to Jamian’s, Red Tank Brewing could become both a social spot and a must-go destination for beer connoisseurs. It has a big bar and plenty of table seating for almost 100 people. It also has the advantage of being with a few minutes of lots of take-out eateries, so beer drinkers can bring some food (knowing that New Jersey breweries are barred from serving food).
Gameacon is a rather new convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey celebrating video gaming and fan culture with a special emphasis on independent game development. It will feature the newest gaming technology, video and tabletop games for professionals and fans. It opens October 19, 2018 with an industry-only day, and it’s open to the public on October 20 and 21, all at the Ocean Resort Casino. Don’t miss the VR experience, laser tag, cosplay and Fortnite tournament!
