Win a Day at the Pool in the My Borgata Summer Sweepstakes

my-borgata-summer-300x250You know what’s the best thing about Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa this summer?

Staying here.

Sure, it’s nice to pop by and experience Premier Nightclub or our new Borgata Beer Garden, maybe take in a great show and have a great dinner. But instead of heading for the parking garage, the best way to follow up a night at Borgata is an overnight stay in a classic room followed by a relaxing day at Borgata’s outdoor pool.

Why the pitch? Because we want you here and we’re giving away one overnight stay to lucky winners every week from July 15 to August 24 in our “My Borgata Summer Sweepstakes.”

Concert Review: Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy Rock Borgata Event Center

Jeff BeckFor 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.

Introducing the Mexican Fiesta Meal at Borgata’s Metropolitan

mexican-fiesta

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.

Trying the Classic and the New at Fornelletto

FornellettoThere’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.

Pokemon Go Pokestops Spotted at Borgata

meowth-500At 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.

Bob Dylan Brings Legendary Career to Borgata Event Center

Bob Dylan (2015)For many music fans, Bob Dylan is a legend. The 76-year-old Dylan has had a career that’s hard to quantify into words. Folk music pioneer, socially influential protest singer, pop music star and rock music star (you know, when he went electric).

That’s Dylan.

His recording career, spanning more than 50 years, has explored the traditions in American song—from folk, blues, and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and the Great American Songbook.

This is one guy we’re talking about here.

When Bob Dylan rolls into the Borgata Event Center Sunday July 10, you can expect a true master to embrace his latest incarnation – that of the Great American Songbook. That’s because his last two albums – the 36th and 37th studio albums of his career – were Shadows in the Night, featuring ten songs written between 1923 and 1963 and recorded by Frank Sinatra and Fallen Angels, which was described as “a direct continuation of the work of ‘uncovering’ the Great Songbook that he began on last year’s Shadows In the Night.”
