Here's your invitation to join me and Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG from 6-9 pm Monday, Aug. 21 for "Taste of the Quarter" at the Tropicana Atlantic City.

Over 25 restaurants, bars and eateries will feature a special taste of their menu for this signature event benefiting United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey in Atlantic County.

Again this year, I will be one of the celebrity chefs for "Taste". Don't worry, I won't actually be making the food, just serving it! Come see me between 6-7pm  Monday at Zeytinia Gourmet Market for Taste of the Quarter.

Tickets are $30. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Taste of the Quarter benefit United Way in Atlantic County.

Tickets can be purchased at the IMAX Box Office, located on the third floor of The Quarter, Ticketmaster.com, via phone at 1.800.745.3000 or the United Way Atlantic County office in Galloway.

Look at this great list of participating eateries and what will be on the menu. I hope to see you Monday at Taste of the Quarter...
