Ducktown Tavern. An Atlantic City Must!


It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Oh, wait a minute…it is a bird…and that bird is Zorro Duck! And when he and any of the other members of the flock are passing through Atlantic City they are sure to make a pit stop at Ducktown Tavern.

Ducktown Tavern which opened in 1995 gets it’s name  from the Ducktown area of Atlantic City (stretching from Missouri Avenue to Texas Avenue). How did this area of Atlantic City get the name Ducktown? Glad you asked. Italian immigrants heavily settled Ducktown in the early 1900s and named it for the duck houses they built along the bayfront, where they raised poultry and waterfowl.  It is now mostly an Italian American community.

Zorro Duck: “Fighting crime makes me hungry and thirsty. I must stop at Ducktown Tavern!”

Snucki loves to hang out there, too.

Snucki: “I’m always down for drinks at Ducktown Tavern! Where else is a little gui-duck gonna go?!”

There is even a Ducktown Tavern firetruck!

Cheese Duck: “I wanna take a ride on that Ducktruck!”

Another shot of the ducktruck.

Cheese Duck: “The ducktruck puts a smile on my beak.”

Cheese Duck: “Watch out where you put out that cigar, duck. You don’t want to start any fires. Good thing there’s a fire ducktruck here at Ducktown Tavern. Seems this guy likes to smoke a lot of cigars. Heeheehee. Well, off to join the rest of the flock at Ducktown Tavern. Until next time! Chow!”

Ducktown Tavern Adventures


Tartyann: “This way! This way, Cheese! Look what I have found!”

Tartyann: “It’s a duck tavern right in the heart of Atlantic City! Hee!”

Cheese: “Wow! Ducktown Tavern! How did they know we were coming?!”

Tartyann: “And they are open 24 hours! Sounds like my kind of place! Heehee!”

Tartyann: “And there are rules to be broken. Rules are for the birds…well , except for us birds! Heeheehee.”
Cheese: “I wonder if there are any early bird specials?”
Cheese: “Three Happy Hours a day!!!! Now that puts a smile on my beak, quack!”

Atlantic City Adventures


Poker Duck: “All aboard the ACES train! It’s off to AC we go, quack!”

Poker Duck: “Now……off to the casino for a little Texas Hold ‘em!”

Ducksino: “Come in this house if you are a high rolling double down duck!”

Vegas Baby: “Don’t mind if I do!”
Cheese Duck: “Looks like we are on our own today on the boardwalk. The locals aren’t sharing their food today.”

M.C. Quacker (on the right): “I’m on a boat motherducker take a look at me,
Straight flowing on a boat on the deep blue sea,
Busting five knots, wind whipping out my coat,
You can’t stop me motherducker cause I’m on a boat.”

Ducky D. (on the left): “Rhyming is easy fosheezy.”

Duckfest from a rubber duck’s perspective


Ever wonder what Duckfest would be like from a rubber duck’s perspective? Of course you have. And here on Duckfest we will happily go to there………..
Cheese Duck: “All those tasty treats over there are starting to make my beak water. I must get right over there before all the duck collectors do!”

Cheese Duck: “Duck shaped cookies! I can’t wait to sink my beak into one of those….hmm….would it be gauche of me to eat one since they are duck-shaped?”

Cheese Duck: “Duckcakes! I’m so glad I have teeth! I cannot pass these treats up! Of course I will take the duck off the duckcake before eating. I love me some blue icing!”

Cheese Duck: “Perhaps I will take a gander at this….or should I? If I win do I have to share the tub with all of them? “
