Celebrate the Full Moon by the Ocean; Plus, Food Deals!

A full moon over the Atlantic Ocean is one of the prettiest sights here. Atlantic Hotel & Spa is taking advantage of that and will start their monthly Full Moon Parties on May 17, from 7 to 10 p.m.

Hosted on the fifth floor oceanfront Terrace, this includes a prix-fixe, four-course menu, live music and entertainment by DJ Angelo, fire dancers and more. Dinner is from Atlantic’s new Wild Thyme Oceanside Eatery and the menu will change each month. Cost is $49.95 per person for dinner; the Full Moon Party is free but doesn’t include food or drinks. Reservations for dinner are required.
