(Photo by Caitlin Miller/StyleBistro) Todd Lewison is at the Rush Lounge Sunday through Friday for his signature Happy Hour.A midwestern girl walks into a bar with a camera and a notepad...no, it's not a joke. It's actually the truth. On the last day of StyleBistro's trip to Atlantic City, I sought out advice from a bartender. Not life or romance advice — although I'm sure I could have used it — but rather drink advice. A cocktail 101, if you will. It may not look like it, but I'm getting...Read Full Story

I met Madonna and Shania Twain today. At least they could have been. But more on that later.I started today as I've started most days here in AC: quick breakfast, work, and more work.

Seems normal for 9:30 a.m.After working for a few hours from the comfort of my king-sized bed (I'm still really excited about this), I met Danica at the Tropicana for a tour of the establishment...Read Full Story

It's been really cold the last couple of...Read Full Story
