98 Degrees at Christmas
With a name like 98 Degrees, one would think that the boy band would be loving the fact that it's still summertime. But as it turns out, the guys already have their mind on Christmas.

 98 Degrees announced that they're making a second Christmas album, a follow-up to their 1999 platinum holiday record This Christmas. Christmas is coming two months early for 98 Degrees fans, as Let It Snow arrives Oct. 13.

With the band celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album this year, the group's Nick Lachey said in a statement that it feels like the perfect time to revisit their Christmas record and create a Volume Two. His brother and bandmate, Drew, added that the group agrees that This Christmas is their favorite record -- but in the eyes of the band's Jeffrey Timmons, what really made them want to create another Christmas album is the fact that holiday tunes are loved by all.

Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ Tour
Built between 1929 and 1932 by the Midmer-Losh Organ Company of Merrick, Long Island, N.Y., the Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ was designed by Atlantic County State Senator, and noted organ architect Emerson L. Richards. He specified almost every detail of the instrument, from its physical construction to the actual sound the various stops should make. Get a group together to tour this magnificent machine. 
  
A “Behind the Scenes” tour is offered every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.  This in-depth 2 hour tour leads guests through several sections of the organ which are normally closed to the public and gives an extremely detailed look at the mechanism of the instrument, its history and the current restoration project.  This tour does involve an extensive amount of walking and stair climbing.  An alternate tour path is available for persons with limited mobility.
The tour is followed by a 1/2 hour concert.

All tours are free and open to the public and no reservations are necessary.   Entrance to the building is through the front lobby off the boardwalk.
