Surrounded by stilt walkers delivering bright orange cotton candy, roaming hula hoopers, colorful games and Santa Monica’s iconic Ferris Wheel, American Express and Resy created a lively world of culinary delights to celebrate guests’ shared passion for summer-fun dining.
American Express took over the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, welcoming guests to the waterfront dining experience, Amex Gold x Resy Present: The Boardwalk, on July 9, 2022 to celebrate the refreshed $120 Dining Credit on the American Express Gold Card.

Noteworthy dishes from the event included Angler’s Lobster Roll, Guelaguetza’s Ceviche Tostadas, Hotville Chicken’s Dos TaHOTquitos, Pizzana’s Vongole Pizza, Petit Trois’ Crispy Tapioca, Konbi’s Sesame Chocolate Fudge Tart, among others.

Helping guests ‘cool down’ was an epic Milk Bar Dunk Tank experience and some pints of their signature Cereal Milk ice cream. “At Milk Bar we believe in the power of dessert. Whether you’re trying our newest flavor of soft serve at your local bakery or sending a care package of cakes, cookies or pie across the country to someone special, we take being part of the milestones, seemingly normal moments and everything in between seriously,” said Kim Kaminsky, VP of Brand, Creative and Communications at Milk Bar. “That’s why we are excited to join the $120 Dining Credit on the American Express Gold Card and bring unique experiences such as this summer fun dunk tank to life!”
Serving up a special wine popsicle, Peter Elarde, Chief Marketing Officer of Wine.com said, “We’re excited to bring the world of wine to Gold Card Members through the $120 Dining Credit and to provide a literal taste of how great wine enhances any dining experience through this Boardwalk event.”
