I know the Revel is now Ten, but I still come over all Bowie when I start writing about it. Anyway, in no big news to anyone, Glen Straub won’t be opening the former casino anytime soon, The Press of Atlantic City reports. Other investors are still interested in buying the property, the article says.
Read Route 40’s Bill Sprouse on the last time Revel wasn’t opening in June (2016).

AC Guide
Looking for the definitive non-casino guide to Atlantic City? Thanks to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Amy Rosenberg, who knows all the best places and doesn’t mind sharing her intel, it’s here. Amy told us about the banh mi spot AC Sandwiches and it’s now one of our lunchtime favorites (it’s in the guide).

In the rest of the day’s news, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that the Revel (aka Ten) isn’t opening this month, here’s a look at that time Gov. Christie stashed his cellphone with now FBI-nominee Christopher Wray, more states are joining New Jersey’s drug-monitoring program and could Atlantic County’s Hirsh Singh have a shot at the lieutenant governor position as Kim Guadagno’s running mate? All that and more below the events roundup.

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend (sunny, 80-83 F) and there’s a lot going on. In AC you can kick off with a full moonrise climb at the Absecon Lighthouse tonight before heading over to Gardner’s Basin to support the AC Arts Foundation with a strawberry-moon cruise, then tomorrow morning watch the round-the-island paddle race (it kicks off at 8 am on Saturday from the marina outside Gold, watch or take part in the double dutch skipping event at Brown’s park in Atlantic City on Saturday,

Downbeach, Ventnor is hosting a food truck festival on ski beach all weekend, then Porchfest will kick off from 1 pm on Sunday, followed up by Funk Daddy playing the beach concert on Newport Ave.

In Linwood, there will be music at the farmer’s market on Saturday and over in the Pines, there’s a Blueberry-themed art contest at Whitesbog (kids enter free) all weekend and on Sunday (also at Whitesbog) you can enjoy a lunchtime music jam. Over in Hammonton on Saturday there is another food truck festival from 4.30 pm.
