Atlantic City Boardwalk Rodeo
I am a NYC gal and have never been to a Rodeo before and told Allen I really wanted to attend the one in NJ. Allen graciously bought us tickets for the Atlantic City Boardwalk Rodeo Friday, March 30 at Boardwalk Hall and planned an entire weekend of events. Our weekend consisted of Cowboys, Cowgirls, horses, bulls, steers, great food, beautiful hotel room with an ocean view, and a team tournament.

On Friday, we had an early dinner at Caesars La Piazza and then headed over to the Rodeo. Our seats were great, comfortable and we had an excellent view. This was my first time in Boardwalk Hall and I was impressed by the place minus the manure smell. By the way, Madonna will be performing here in September. I got used to the smell after a few minutes and really enjoyed the Rodeo. I was not able to get great photos since I was using my old Canon PowerShot and the shutter speed sucks. Here are two photos from the Rodeo to give you an idea of our evening fun. To see photos of the Rodeo, go to the Altantic City Weekly: http://www.atlanticcityweekly.com/arts-and-entertainment/features/Atlantic-City-Boardwalk-Rodeo-Day-One-145382265.html.

The Rodeo was in town for three shows Friday, March 30 - Sunday, April 1, 2012. The Rodeo featured seven different events: Bareback Riding, Tie-Down Roping, Saddle Brone Riding, Team Roping, Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling and Bull Riding. It was an action packed evening and I was so happy we went.

After the Rodeo, we went to Bally's Wild Wild West for a little while and watched The Vixen dancers at the Mountain Bar and got burgers and fries to enjoy in our lovely room at Caesars Centurion Tower. The view we had of the Atlantic City Boardwalk from our room at night was beautiful. We could see the Borgata, Harrah's and the Golden Nugget in the distance too.

Allen and I had a very delicious lunch at Caesars Lounge and our server was wonderful. These are pics of the desserts we enjoyed. Allen was invited to play in a team tournament in the evening and we had a lot of fun. The spread consisted of a nice selection of wraps, paninis, pasta, salads, sliders, dumplings, desserts, and more... The dumplings had steak and shrimp and a delicious asian sauce and the sliders were great and cooked medium just the way I like them.

This was our last day in Atlantic City and we slept in since we had an extended checkout. Allen ordered room service for us and we loved our food. Allen got Dock Side Omelet with shrimp, lobster, and cheese with breakfast potatoes and hollandaise sauce with Old Bay Seasoning. I chose 3 ingredients for my omelet: mushroom, pepper and tomato with breakfast potatoes. What a yummy way to end our trip with room service watching the waves on the beach from our room.
