It's hard to remember what casinos did for marketing stunts before the advent of reality television. These days, it's darn near impossible to swing a bottle of Cristal in a gambling hall without hitting some insta-celeb or other. Which explains why mom-to-be and guidette- of-letters Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was at Wednesday's grand opening of Earl of Sandwich, a hot-sandwich emporium at Showboat Atlantic City.
The Snookster not only presided over the store's ribbon cutting, but proudly lauded the wonders of her own sandwich. It's called the "Gorilla Beach" after her book of the same name. It's made with grilled chicken, bread crumbs, tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, lettuce and--as she said, "pickles, of course."
We were hoping to ask the Snookified One her views on the current presidential campaign, but the media types in attendance were under strict orders to keep the queries limited to the book or the sandwich.

Though her vampire transformation is eternal, actress Kristen Stewart’s actions show that her love and compassion in her relationship with her heartthrob boyfriend Robert Pattinson might not be forever.
The 22-year-old cheated on Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, 41, the director of Stewart’s newest feature-film, “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Us Weekly describes the act, which was caught on camera, as a “steamy rendezvous,” while a source close to the situation tells People, “She wasn’t having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn’t have happened."
