Casino in the park jersey city hosts party for Snyder High School Last month in May, Casino in the Park in Jersey City held its annual dinner for students at Snyder High School. 

Bernie Sweeney owner of the Casino in the Park and Shore Casino in Atlantic Highlands has been hosting and donating the Snyder High party for the past 11 plus years.  As an alumni of the school and  also an inductee into Snyder High School’s Hall of Honor since 1998 the party is Sweeney’s way of giving back to his old alma mater. 

In those 11  plus years of hosting the Snyder party which equals to around 5000 dinners,  Sweeney’s message to the young people at Snyder has always been study, work hard,  and pay it forward to others.

The event is an exciting time for Sweeney, his wife Kathleen his sons  and staff as told by  Sweeney’s  son Jay, ” For us at the Casino in the Park it is a joy to see these young people having a great time, they’re all great kids with good grades and all we ask is they go out and help others in their lives.”  He Said. “Our one message through the years go out and do something wonderful for someone else.”

16th Annual No Pants Subway Ride

16th annual no pants subway ride









16th Annual No Pants Subway Ride is back and will take place on Sunday, January 8th this year. If you never heard of this event it  is an annual event staged by Improv Everywhere every January in New York City. 

Started many years ago as a small prank with seven guys has  grown into an international celebration of silliness, with dozens of cities around the world participating each year.

The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants behave as if they do not know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.

The 16th Annual No Pants Subway Ride will take place on January 8 in New York York City. Full participation details including meeting point locations can be found below: Join our email list to stay updated about this and future participatory events in NYC: After the ride, come to the official after party at Bar 13! Details & RSVP here:

Have you ever gone to this event?

Would you go now that you know about it?
