It’s not every day at the Borgata Blog that we get to tell you about another of our new hotel packages at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and get to use a great pun.
So let us introduce a great new package designed for comedy lovers we’re calling the Bor-HaHa Hotel Package.
Get it. Borgata … Bor-HaHa.
Ok, maybe we’re using the description “great” pun a little loosely, but it doesn’t change the fact that our new Bor-HaHa Hotel Package is a great deal for fans of stand-up comedy and the Borgata Comedy Club.
Start by sipping cocktails at Long Bar, then laugh out loud with some of the region’s top comics, before slipping into 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets in your signature Borgata bed.
Starting at $129 a night, you get:
Sure, the spring weather is upon us, but the damage from the cold, dry winter still has a major impact on skin, especially during these transitional months. However, there are some easy practices and simple tips that you can easily implement into your daily routine to help heal and prevent dryness, aging, and damage. We chatted with Borgata esthetician Lynda Iliev, who works at both our Immersion Spa and Spa Toccare, who provided us with some basic and practical tips to keep your skin looking perfect in any season.
Our friends at Atlantic City Weekly name their list of The Top 40 Under 40 each year — a tribute to young executives and community leaders throughout the Atlantic City area.
And once again, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is proud to have had one of our brightest young executives – Simon Poglein, Director of Database Marketing for Borgata – named one of the Top 40 for 2016.
Atlantic City Weekly joined forces with the Greater Atlantic City Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) in 2005 to establish the Top 40 Under 40 — a campaign designed to recognize outstanding volunteerism, community service, cultural enhancement and exceptional work ethics in sectors of society such as business, government, education, healthcare, hospitality and others.
We think Simon embodies those ideals perfectly and are delighted to see him recognized by the community. We had a Q & A with Simon to discuss his being named to the 2016 Top 40 Under 40 List.
Tell us about your background. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m originally from a rural part of Pennsylvania, located about 45 minutes East of Pittsburgh. My college degree, a B.S. in Communications Media, was completed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in December 2002. Both sides of my family, going back several generations, have traditionally vacationed at the Jersey Shore. During one of those visits, I noticed a billboard for Borgata, advertising employment opportunities to ‘Work Someplace Different.’ I applied, and that is pretty much how my career in gaming began. My initial position was at the My Borgata Center, followed by a subsequent move to marketing. In 2013 I took a marketing position with Isle of Capri Casinos, where I was part of the opening team of Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Within that same year, an opportunity presented itself here at Borgata, and so I made my way back to Atlantic City.
What’s your favorite memory in your professional career at Borgata?
There are so many great memories, it’s hard to name a single favorite! The best memories I have are from those events in which the entire team here at Borgata delivers on a truly special, one of a kind experience for our customers. If I had to name one, Borgata’s Free Throw Basketball tournament held on March 21, 2015 was an event I will never forget. It was the kind of day that makes working at Borgata such a unique and rewarding experience.
Leap Day only comes around every four years, and we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa think everyone should take advantage of Monday, February 29.
After all, it’s a whole extra day—part of a 366-day year. Ok, it’s an extra Monday, but don’t let that get you down. There’s only 52 Mondays in 2016, just like most years.
But there’s only one February 29, and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa wants to help you make the most of it with these 29 ideas to make Leap Day special. At Borgata, we try to make every day special, but hey, Leap Day has inspired us.
Here’s our suggestions and Happy Leap Day!
So, what are you doing Monday, February 29?
Yes folks, 2016 is another Leap Year meaning an extra day is tacked onto February, the shortest month of the year, to make up for the about six extra hours the Earth takes to get around the sun each year (six hours every four years makes up an extra day).
And so, a lot of whacky traditions have sprung up around the day, not including people who are born on Leap Day walking around saying, “Ha, ha, today’s my sixth birthday.”
Traditions such as in Ireland and Britain where women get to propose marriage to men. We in the U.S. picked up the tradition and called it Sadie Hawkins Day.
And then there’s, uhm, well, some other traditions include, uhm.
Ok that’s about it. And really, in the 21st century who is going to keep women from asking men to marry them whenever they want?
You know what Leap Days really needs? Some more traditions. Luckily we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are ready to fill the need.
How about a tradition of a quick getaway to Borgata complete with deals on our classic rooms in Borgata’s Leap Day package which includes:
Sales are great. No matter what it is—clothes, snack crackers, car mats—it’s just a wonderful feeling to know you’re getting a bargain price on an item.
And it’s even better when you can get a sale price on an experience. You know, a great price on a winter getaway where you can relax, enjoy a good show and sleep in a luxuriously appointed room.
Yep. You guessed it. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is having a sale on a hotel package.
From now through April 28 we’re offering our Experience Borgata Package—normally $274 a night—for $169 Sundays through Thursdays.
With the package you get an overnight stay in a beautifully designed Classic Guest Room, a $100 dining credit, two complimentary Comedy Club tickets (regularly $20) and $25 Bonus SLOT DOLLARS®.
With some quick math, that’s about $165 in freebies on a $169 package. Now that’s a sale.
Fall is a season of change, and here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we want to put a little more change in your pocket. OK, that was awful. Bad puns aside, we do know here at Borgata that everyone could use two things—a bargain and a break from the day-to-day stress every once in…
There was a time when Labor Day Weekend was kind of a bittersweet holiday here in Atlantic City. Sure, as a beach resort we partied hard at the unofficial end of the summer, but it was also the end of the season and things we’re about to quiet down until spring.
Well, that quieting down part is long gone and we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa go full blast 24/7, 365 days a year. But we still love to party on Labor Day Weekend.
So that’s just sweet, no bitter.
To celebrate the end of summer, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has put together a line-up like no other on the Jersey Shore for this Labor Day Weekend. From casino promotions to concerts and shows to the best nightclub action anywhere, we’ve got the perfect holiday celebration to see out a long summer season.
Check it out:
We start our Pick the Pros Football Challenge—which runs through the season until the Big Game—on Labor Day Sept. 7. That’s also the date of the $100,000 Cash Sweepstakes with a $25,000 grand prize.
There’s the exciting nightlife and clubs, the casino action, the relaxing and rejuvenating spa experiences and the great shows and dining. In short, Borgata is a great place to party.
