AC Now: Memorial Day Weekend in A.C.

Bad news beach-goers, the long-weekend forecast in Atlantic City calls for scattered soak-your-towel-with-no-warning thunderstorms. But not to fret — regardless of possible showers — you've got three mornings to sleep in and, apart from the standard shopping and gambling, A.C's got tons of events to keep you out all night. We've compiled the brave-the-traffic-worthy stuff that make your backyard barbeque look tame. Check out our entertainment picks.

And, as always, we've got the breakdown on where to dine and drink, shop and party — as well as a great new spa to best nurse your hangover.

And if it does rain during the day, you can always head over to Harrah's brand-spanking-new, largest-in-town indoor pool complex with cash bar and no kiddies (and, amazingly, open to the public Saturday and Sunday).

Gas prices too high? Take the train.
