For music fans of a certain era, popular music was once dominated by one instrument above all others – the electric guitar. Sure, disco wasn’t that far removed from today’s EDM, and pop singers are always with us just like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber are today.
But for these fans, music – real rock and roll music – comes from an electric guitar – not to mention blues and honky-tonk country music.
So it was with some nostalgia that several thousand old-school fans packed the Borgata Event Center Saturday to see two of the electric guitars most established and influential masters take the stage as blues legend Buddy Guy and rock legend Jeff Beck performed a double bill. Either one could have performed as a solo headliner, but to have both on the same bill resulted in about 2-and-a-half hours of guitar bliss – not bad for two septuagenarians.
The show started with an hour-long set by Guy who was appearing one week shy of his eightieth birthday. Considering that Guy began his career in the late 50’s, that’s a lot of shows under his belt.
Every week we bring you a list of the big jackpot winners at BorgataCasino.com and the big tournament winners at BorgataPoker.com. We do it to congratulate our winners, and just because we think it’s cool to take a look at the great jackpots at Borgata’s online sites.
But as every slots player knows, one of the most exciting aspects of slots play today come in bonus rounds. That’s when Borgata’s slots really pay off with bonus spins and extra payoffs without the player having to make a bet.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Metropolitan, one of our original casual dining bistros, isn’t the type of establishment that fits into a nice little restaurant genre.
It has the ambiance of a European bistro, serves contemporary and classic American dishes and has the best oyster bar you’ll find anywhere in Atlantic City.
So obviously, as you’d expect after reading that description, on Sunday evenings (after 3pm) The Metropolitan offers up a full-on Mexican Fiesta.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. We just love to announce the winners of $10,000 jackpots at Borgata’s online casino sites.
In this case, Andrew from Jersey City New Jersey, made a $10 bet on the Double Diamond slot game at BorgataCasino.com and won $10,000.00. That’s pretty easy math – a thousand to one return on his bet.
Of course, we salute all our jackpot winners – like the $7,829 won by Tracy from Middlesex – but you just have to love round numbers. Ten bucks returns 10 grand. That’s so cool.
What kind of jackpot is waiting for you at Borgata’s online sites?
There’s always something comforting in the thought of combining the old and the new – especially when it comes to great restaurants like Fornelletto.
When you descend the winding staircase that creates the grotto like feel of our fine Italian restaurant, there’s a lot of the familiar to take comfort in.The Tuscan ambiance, the truly amazing wine selections and the tradition of menu selections that have been in place since the restaurant and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa first opened.
No better dish signifies this than Fornelletto’s Veal “Osso Bucco” Ravioli.

At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, there’s a lot going on to appeal to the social media and online app conscious – Premier Nightclub and our great nightlife, fabulous restaurants, poker tournaments and online gaming at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, just to name a few.
But perhaps most importantly, Borgata is riding the biggest online app craze going.
Yes, we have PokeStops – at least five and counting.
In a word, we’re honored.
If you haven’t heard of the craze called Pokemon Go – maybe you live in a cave, for example – it’s a game designed for smartphones that has millions of people scouring the country for little pocket monsters (Really, that’s what Pokemon means). And when we say millions, we mean millions as the game has been downloaded a reported 7.5 million times and it was released less than two weeks ago. That means thousands of people probably downloaded it since you began reading this post.
This August, Borgata is turning to the Great White Way to heat up their entertainment options. Some of Broadway’s biggest performers from Hamilton, Wicked, and The Phantom of the Opera area headed to the Atlantic City resort for multiple memorable summer nights full of show tunes we all know and love.
