Borgata’s February Spa Specials

February Borgata Spa SpecialsAs we like to say when February rolls around, sweets for the sweet. And that’s the theme surrounding Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s February spa specials, as we present a host of relaxation treatments that employ chocolate, strawberries and brown sugar, among other sweets.

Now at this point, any Shakespearian scholars reading this are probably annoyed that we’re misquoting “sweets to the sweet” from Hamlet.

So yes, the line is from Hamlet and has nothing to do with candy and is in fact, used in a kind of depressing way within the play. (You can look it up if you must know.)

But we’re not about that here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and our spa treatments are designed to relax, re-invigorate and generally recharge you in the bleakness of winter. And, of course, with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we’ve tailored February’s specials to couples and romance.

We’ve also put a heavy emphasis on chocolate this month, which even Shakespeare couldn’t make depressing. That’s probably why there are no famous Shakespearian quotes about chocolate. (Well, that and the fact that chocolate as we know it hadn’t really taken hold in Europe during his life.)

So we’ll turn to a great 20th Century writer—Charles M. Schultz, the creator of Charlie Brown—for a quote that sums up our February specials:

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”

Here’s a look at Borgata’s February Spa Specials:

Big Game Specialty Drinks at Borgata’s Long Bar

Big Game CocktailsIt’s a battle for the ages, or rather, a battle of the ages. Sunday’s Big Game features the old pro against the young upstart, the tale of two great defenses and a golden celebration of 50 years of championship football.

And it could mark the last hurrah for one of football’s all-time greats.

Dramatic is it not?

Fortunately, football drama comes with a solid dose of “hey, time to party,” and none of the stress and seriousness of, oh let’s say, a presidential election.

So we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and especially at Long Bar, have devised the perfect way to party—signature drinks representing your chosen team. It’s one thing to toast the great career of Peyton Manning, and another to acknowledge the rising star of Cam Newton, but it’s just downright cool to do it with the delectable cocktails designed by Long Bar’s mixologists.

Here’s our starting line-up.
