Weekend Happenings: Championship Boxing, Savor Borgata, Flyers at Boardwalk Hall
When the Philadelphia Flyers hit the ice for open practice at Boardwalk Hall this Sunday, it will be the first full team practice in Atlantic City since 1982.
Doors will open at 11:30am and the Flyers hit the ice promptly at 12:30pm.
Fans are encouraged to arrive to practice early as there will be plenty of activities taking place on the Boardwalk Hall concourse level. Flyers alumni, Bob Kelly will be signing autographs and the Flyers Ice Team will be on hand for photo opportunities.
You will also have the chance to win tickets to an upcoming Philadelphia Flyers game by partaking in Boardwalk Hall’s “You Lucky Dog” contest. With every purchase of a hot dog comes the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the Flyers home game at the Wells Fargo Center.
Here's the rest of the South Jersey Weekend Happenings...
- Boardwalk Hall: This weekend's big attraction is the return of championship boxing to Atlantic City Saturday night. The seemingly ageless Bernard Hopkins, who turns 50 in January, faces Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev in a 12-round light heavyweight unification bout being shown on HBO. This could be boxing's biggest fight of the year and it's a real coup to have it here in AC!
- Borgata: The third annual Savor Borgata, the resort's premier food festival is Friday and Saturday 11/7-11/8, featuring all of Borgata's chefs and partners at intimate dinners, lunches, classes, demonstrations, and tastings. Events include the very popular "Street Eats" tasting.
Enjoy delectable food choices from Wolfgang Puck of Wolfgang Puck American Grille, Bobby Flay of Bobby Flay Steak, Geoffrey Zakarian of The Water Club Hotel, Michael Schulson of Izakaya, Stephen Kalt of Fornelletto Cucina & Wine Bar, and restaurateurs Greg & Marc Sherry of the Old Homestead Steak House.
