Concert Review: Elvis Costello’s Imperial Bedroom Tour

elvis-costelloSince first bursting onto the punk scene in the 1970’s, Elvis Costello has been making music for nearly 50 years. That may seem like simple fact, but it took on a special relevance for the large crowd that saw Costello play Saturday at the Borgata Event Center.

Recently, Costello, now 62, has been drawing on a song catalog that has gained him distinction as one of the best and most distinctive songwriters of the last 50 years for a series of solo dates he dubbed a “Detour.” In that vein, Costello used his Borgata Event Center appearance to launch a two-week set of dates with his band the Imposters dubbed “The Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers Tour,” highlighting his 1982 album Imperial Bedroom.

For an enthusiastic Borgata crowd, it was chance to see Costello’s emotional and deepest songwriting at his best, interspersed with just enough go-to hits to keep the crowd singing along.

5 Burgers You Have To Try At Borgata


There are few things in the American culinary palate as time honored and cherished as ground beef sandwiches served in endless varieties.

We make them in our kitchens and at cookouts and we go out to eat them or just grab a sack on the way home from work. And we eat hamburgers a lot. It’s estimated that the average American eats three hamburgers a week and as a country, we consume 50 billion hamburgers a year. That’s billion, with a “B.”

Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian Shares His Tuna Tartare Recipe With You

gz-tunaWhen it comes to regional delicacies, few staples are as universal as the serving of fish and meats in an uncooked state.

And yes, we do mean delicacies, such as sushi, sashimi and the many variations of steak tartare. The use of raw protein ensures a freshness and taste that can easily be lost on the grill.

The traditional steak tartare is a French specialty that was originally served with tartare sauce in the 19th century, but has undergone a lot of regional changes – mostly involving the use of herbs and spices. Sushi and sashimi are Japanese delicacies that feature raw fish that exploded on the American scene in the 1980’s.

Much like eating your first raw oyster, fans of tartare and sushi took a bit of a plunge their first time (though these preparations are perfectly safe), but found gastronomic delights that can make you regret every time you’ve ever ordered something well done…

Online Gaming Winners for October 3 – 9

glowMost everybody would agree, that $5,000 is a nice figure for a sudden windfall – like, for example as a jackpot at BorgataCasino.com or a win in a poker tournament at BorgataPoker.com.

And $5,000 is a recurring theme this week in our big online winners for October 3 to October 9.

Of course, it’s not $5,000 exactly, though Kevin from Sicklerville did hit the $5K button right on the nose while playing at BorgataCasino.com. It’s more like a range of about $4,000 to $6,000. In all, five players won between $4,000 to $6,000 this week with $5K as about the mid-range average.

Miss’d America 2016 Re-Cap: An Atlantic City Tradition

rgk784There was definitely a sense that it wasn’t your typical Saturday night at Borgata on September 24. At the top of The Event Center escalators was a man, wearing a feather boa, waving two giant light-up rainbow scepters, greeting guests as they arrived for the 2016 Miss’d America Pageant.

The annual event, which has honored all things gay at the South Jersey shore since 1991, has raised over $300,000 for LGBT charities in the Greater Atlantic City region, and you can easily see why: the night brought out hundreds of loyal audience members of all ages, sexes, orientations, and races. It was something people looked forward to all year long. As I entered The Event Center, a group of older women were in line ahead of me. One of them turned around and said, “This is better than seeing male strippers. I have more fun doing this!”
