The latest entertainment venue to hit Tropicana in Atlantic City, N.J., 10 North Lounge, is now offering live music every Thursday. Pianist and vocalist Darin MacDonald will be performing every Thursday from 6–10 p.m.

MacDonald has performed all over the world including in hotels in Singapore and Osaka, Japan. He’s also performed on Carnival Cruise Lines throughout the Caribbean. His style is versatile, ranging from acoustic pop to rock-n-roll. The New Zealand native loves to keep the crowd entertained.

The smoking-friendly lounge is located within Tropicana’s casino and offers a range of wines, local microbrews and handcrafted cocktails. In addition to 10 North Lounge, Tropicana offers live entertainment every Saturday at The Quarter and nightly performance at Tango’s Lounge. It was awarded the Best Casino Bar/Lounge for Live Entertainment in the 2016 AC Weekly Nightlife Awards.

 

The return of familiarization trips is one key sign that things are beginning to return to normal in our industry. In mid-June the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) hosted more than 40 meeting and convention planners for a three-day familiarity tour. Their stay included a visit to the Franklin Institute and world premiere exhibit Harry Potter: The Exhibition, evening reception on the Rocky Steps, and a watch party as Philadelphia was announced as a host city for the FIFA World Cup 2026.

 

If you’ve hosted meetings at the Javits Center or other venues in Manhattan, you know that there’s more than enough to do in the borough to easily keep attendees busy for days.

 

Pittsburgh may be known as The Steel City, but it has plenty of greenery, too, and opportunities for groups attending meetings here to get out in nature. The Pittsburgh CVB, which has the tagline “Only in Pittsburgh,” has proudly shared the news that the Great Allegany Passage was named a winner in the 2022 USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” travel award contest for “best recreational trail.”
