ShopBorgata.com’s Holiday Sale – 25% Off

shp_bor_robe_203x185Holiday shopping can be a hectic thing, what with the traffic, the crowds, trying to find a parking spot in the same area code as the store you wanted to visit and so on. And who doesn’t love 78 consecutive hours of canned mall Christmas music? (2,700 versions of “Jingle Bells” and counting.)

At this point, you’re probably thinking that we at the Borgata Blog are about to plug a nice little getaway to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for a relaxing, stress-free, pre-holiday break. Which is great—especially if you take advantage of our monthly spa specials.

But there’s an even easier way to allow Borgata to take some of the crazy out of holiday shopping. And that’s to Shop Borgata from home at our online store. And from now to December 28, ShopBorgata.com is offering a holiday sale or 25 percent off on all items.

That includes all of ShopBorgata.com’s category’s from the Gifts of Comfort (bedding, blankets, sheets), to items for the Spa Connoisseur (robes, aromatherapy) to gifts for the Foodie (cookbooks, margarita glasses, aprons).

Party Non-Stop New Year’s Eve at Borgata

nl-nye-300x250Don’t look now, but 2015 is gaining on us and New Year’s Eve is less than three weeks away.

For a lot of people, that means panic time. Where should we go? Where’s the best party?  Where will we get the kind of New Year’s Eve action that we’ll truly remember?

The answers? Borgata, Borgata and … Borgata.

This New Year’s Eve, which just happens to be a nice mid-week Wednesday night, Borgata Nightlife has lined up several days of parties at our signature bars and nightclubs—enough to turn a mid-week break into a full-on week-long party.

It starts Sunday, December 28, with Dutch DJ and record producer Tiesto playing a full-on show in the Borgata Event Center, with an opening set from Moti. Here’s a full rundown on the show. Tickets are $79.50 to $89.50 and available here.

On Monday, December 29, check out the Industry NYE party with Lil Jon at mur.mur, part of mur.mur Mondays as the rapper/record producer brings the crunk to the best industry party in A.C. Tickets are $30.

On the big night, New Year’s Eve, Borgata Nightlife presents DJ Fashen at mur.mur and D-Nice at MIXX.

A Chef’s Holiday

chef-romeo-blogAward-winning Chef Romeo DiBona tells us what it’s like to spend the holidays with his Italian-American family – including recipes passed down from generation to generation.

Growing up in South Philly we never had turkey on holidays! We serve ravioli, gnocchi or lasagna along with meatballs, braciola, sausage, escarole, broccoli rabe, lots of bread and Italian cheese, homemade wine, cannoli, and pizzele. This gnocchi recipe was handed down from my mother’s Aunt Jenny, and the sauce is my contribution. – Romeo DiBona, Executive Chef at Borgata’s Old Homestead Steak House.

The Sound of Philadelphia Comes to Borgata Jan. 31

The Sound of PhiladelphiaWe in Atlantic City love Philadelphia.

Oh, sure, on the Boardwalk we don’t put cheese whiz on our cheesesteaks—you know, in favor of actual cheese—but that’s just a minor regional thing between close cousins. Atlantic City is Philadelphia’s beach and we share everything from a love of the Philadelphia Eagles to a penchant for funnel cake on the boards.

And then there’s the music, from the old “American Bandstand” days to the great jazz of the City of Brotherly Love.

And who can forget Philadelphia Soul? No, not the arena football team but the great soul music of Philadelphia that came out of the 70s?

Whether you called it Philadelphia Soul, the Philadelphia Sound or just Sweet Philly, Philadelphia introduced a style of soul music that swept the country and was characterized by funk influences and lush instrumental arrangements. The sound is seen as laying the foundations for disco, quiet storm and smooth jazz.

And three of the best examples of this sound are coming to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at the Borgata Event Center January 31 with the show The Sound of Philadelphia. On the bill are the O’Jays, Russell Thompkins Jr. & The New Stylistics and The Delfonics.

Enter the Wish List Sweepstakes on Borgata’s Facebook Page

wishlist-615x615Did you ever think about the simple concept of the wish? You want something so you wish for it. No big deal right?

Wrong. The whole concept of the wish has dominated literature, fairy tales and folklore since the first caveman wished for a sharper rock to cut his mammoth steak.

We make wishes by throwing coins into wells and fountains or by blowing out birthday candles. We make a wish when we see a shooting star, or just the first star of the night. In fiction we’ve dreamed up genies to give out three wishes or a host of magical items to wish upon.

And some of us just out muscled some poor family member to snap the big end of the Thanksgiving turkey’s wishbone.

Well, we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa love wishes too. So much, in fact, that we’ve created the Wish List Sweepstakes on our Borgata Facebook Page.

Each week we’ll give you, our Facebook friends, the chance to choose between three different prizes in the Wish List Sweepstakes. It’s sort of a twist on the three wishes as voter’s choose from three prizes on the wish list.
