Restaurant: The Silver Coin Diner
Address: Hammonton, NJ
Food: Diner food
Portions: Above Average
Me and the Missus had been running around all day Sunday, so we decided to grab a quick bite. We’d been to the Silver Coin before. It’s not an all-night place, but it’s local to us and we were hungry.
I got a cheesesteak hoagie with fries and a side salad. The Missus got an omelette, bacon, toast and coffee. She raved about the coffee and the omelette was really good. (The local Starbucks, the only Starbucks I’ve ever seen close, closed up and was next door. Now I know why.) My cheesesteak was pretty awesome and the toppings were very fresh. The salad was the same way. The highlight were the steak fries. Finally! A place with decent fries!
Iced tea flowed and our waitress was extremely friend, despite being very busy. I noticed the guy at the next table got waffles and ice cream and it looked amazing. Overall, The Silver Coin Diner just nails it. The pies and pastries on display are great. Other than the fact the Wifi never really worked, I can’t find no other fault. Get yourself to the Silver Coin, especially if you want breakfast for dinner.

One of the best spots for Pokémon hunting in the summer, the Ocean City Boardwalk is located in Ocean City, NJ. The stops, which are many, are mostly memorial benches and the occasional gazebo and/or art piece.
Both time I went, tons of lures were active, usually 5 to 8 at a time. This was in the evening, after the sun went down, most people on vacation head to the boards. The first time was about two weeks ago and more than half the people on the boardwalk were walking around staring at their phones.
Since it’s located so close to the ocean, you’re going to get a lot of water-related Pokémon, but there was plenty of others as well. I picked up an Omanyte on the way out of the city (450 CP). Lots of Goldeen and Magikarp. There’s plenty of food and beverage stores on the boardwalk as well and the benches allow you to hang out while you pick up all the Pokémon.
The only minor downside is that the stops are all in one big string, so once you get to the end, you’ll have to turn around. I walked about five kilometers total. I spotted a Scyther in the streets, but I was out of Pokeballs by the time I saw him.
I give the Ocean City, NJ Boardwalk 9.5 out of 10 keggers.
