It’s just a small token of our appreciation.
When 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…
Admit it: You watch endless episodes of Barefoot Contessa on Food Network and wish that you could live her life.
Well, we can’t quite promise you that, but we can guarantee that you’ll have a load of foodie fun (and learn a few things along the way that you can apply to your own cooking) at Borgata’s annual Savor Borgata event. The week-long festival that celebrates everything culinary returns to the resort from Sunday, October 30th through Saturday, November 5th.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a good witch or a bad one: the East Coast’s premiere LGBT resort destination has plenty of tricks and treats for your Halloween celebration. Whether it’s cheering on your favorite drag superstars to dancing the night away in our new state-of-the-art nightclub, OUT at Borgata has a way to make your favorite fall holiday a memorable one.
There 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!”
Fall is a season of great flavors. There’s pumpkin spice, pink pomegranate, vanilla and ice cream sundaes.
Not in food, mind you, but in our October line-up of spa specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Once again our spa experts have put together a group of special treatments utilizing natural ingredients, vitamins, organic botanicals and minerals.
And while outside fall is a season of endings, at Borgata’s spas it’s a season of both rejuvenation and relaxation.
And while you’re here, you might want to check out Borgata’s great dining options. Our Borgata chefs are pretty good at fall flavors as well.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s spa specials for October:
October is here and in the US that means only one thing – its pumpkin time. Throughout the fall and holiday season, pumpkins will be everywhere. They’ll be on porches, carved into jack-o-lanterns and baked into holiday pies.
That’s just scratching the surface as pumpkin spice and pumpkin flavors will abound in everything from pastries to fancy coffee drinks. And there will be no better place to take advantage of this pumpkin frenzy than at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s The Metropolitan which will present a special pumpkin inspired menu through October.
We call it the Pumpkin Patch and it takes advantage of the incredible versatility of pumpkins. You might not know this, but the pumpkin you carve into a jack o’lantern isn’t the same type of pumpkin you bake into a pie. There are actually more than 40 different varieties of pumpkins out there and while some are best used for scary Halloween decorations and fall displays, others are just right for cooking…
Jose Feliciano, who will play the Borgata Music Box December 17, has had a long and varied career and is widely considered the first Latin artist to make the crossover to the English music market. He’s also one of the greatest pop guitarists of all time, being called “the Picasso of his realm.”
He’s been awarded more than 45 Gold and Platinum records and has won 19 Grammy nominations, earning nine Grammy Awards, including the “LARAS Award for Lifetime Achievement.
And yet, when December rolls around, Jose Feliciano becomes synonymous with one simple phrase “Feliz Navidad.” His 1970 bilingual Christmas tune has become as much a part of the holidays as “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” or “Silent Night.”
Japan has an interesting ability to take many of the best spirits in the world, from whiskey to beer, and make them their own. It’s an ability that’s not lost on the mixologists at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s first class Japanese restaurant Izakaya.
Izakaya already offers a wonderful selection of Japanese beers and whiskeys, including whiskeys from Japan’s premier distiller, Suntory.
But while you’ve probably heard of Japanese whiskey, there’s a new type of Japanese spirit that’s starting to sweep the country – Japanese vodka.
Whether you’re looking for an all-out over-the-top wedding ceremony and reception, or a more intimate affair for your closest family and friends, Borgata offers a wide variety of excellent ideas and packages to celebrate your big day. Borgata’s event planning team is thrilled to help our LGBT guests create the perfect occasion that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
