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.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
