Want to know one of the biggest misconceptions about Atlantic City and winter?
Answer: that it’s the slow season.
Not at Borgata Nightlife.
Winter means MIXX at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is supplying extra heat with its Winter Music Series. Two Fridays each month the club opens up to special DJ appearances and shows.
First up for January is DJ Chuckie, extending his Dirty Dutch sound to MIXX Friday, January 9 joined by Borgata House DJ Paul Castro.
Next up, January 16 is music by Nervo with spinning by Borgata DJ Carlos Melange.
Chuckie, born in Suriname, is appearing hot off the release of the EP Traphall with ChildsPlay. As Chuckie puts it on his website, the “four-track EP and collaboration with ChildsPlay features a bombastic hybrid of trap and classic dancehall tunes unlike any before it. Traphall is a testament to Chuckie’s vision for Dirty Dutch Music. This incomparable leadership is taking the label into all spectrums of dance music, leaving no stone unturned.”
But what else would you expect from a guy whose nickname is the King of Dirty Dutch. For those who don’t know what Dirty Dutch is, it is a genre characterized by high pitched lead synths over Latin-inspired rhythms and samples.
Advance tickets for Chuckie are $30 and available here.
Ah, Mondays. The first day of the work week and the school week—the day of the week most removed from the weekend.
Aren’t they great?
There’s a reason Monday’s are immortalized in song—“Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down,” (The Carpenters) “I Don’t Like Mondays,” (Boomtown Rats), “Blue Monday” (Fats Domino).
But you can fight that desire to hate the first day of the week at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s mur.mur Mondays.
Yes, clubbing on a Monday. Think of it as a permanent three-day weekend at Borgata.
Throw in Izakaya Mondays at Borgata’s modern Japanese pub with a menu from sushi to sake from Borgata chef Michael Schulson.
Sevens run wild on the Izakaya Mondays special menu with $7 sushi, sake and robatayaki. Plus, receive complimentary admission to mur.mur Mondays until 11pm with your Izakaya receipt of $20 or more.
And, of course, we always have one of our in-house DJs on mur.mur Mondays including Joe Maz on January 5 and Ross One spinning on January 12. Check out the event schedule.
So Mondays don’t have to be that bad. Not if you make Borgata Nightlife a part of the start to your week.
Now Tuesdays …
The holidays are great aren’t they?
All that shopping and running around. Decorating everything that doesn’t move. There’s cooking, eating, cooking some more, eating, cooking, eating some more.
There’s the drives to see relatives in 27 different states or the reverse fun of having 71 relatives visit you in your three-bedroom house with two baths.
Then some cooking and eating.
And finally, a massive New Year’s Eve party with cooking and eating and drinking and dancing and eating followed by a day of watching parades and football and then cooking and eating.
Yes, the holidays are great. Sure you gained 15 pounds, you’re a nervous wreck and you haven’t seen the bathroom floor through the wet towels in two weeks, but hey, the holidays are gre … You know what?
You could probably use a break.
New Year’s Eve is here.
Now for those people out there who are good at planning—you know the kind of people who made reservations for a Time’s Square hotel six years ago—that’s no big deal.
But for everybody else, it’s time to panic. Where do we go? Where’s the best party?
One answer—Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Even the plan aheaders (those who plan ahead?) know that. Just check out this New Year’s lineup at Borgata.
Events for New Year’s Eve include:

Noon – 7 P.M.
Borgata’s Burlesque Show has been raising eyebrows, temperatures and the roof since the spring and in the process offered up some of the bawdiest entertainment Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has put on all year.
Yes, we said bawdy. We also said ribald, uninhibited and very sexy when we started The Burlesque Show’s second season at Borgata this spring. (check out our blog post at the time).
Now you would think something fitting that description would never get old. And it never did, becoming a staple at Borgata Music Box all summer.
And now we’ve just made it a lot fresher. In fact, it’s holiday fresh.
The Burlesque Show’s Holiday Edition has added 25 percent new material, specifically, a winter-themed performance built around Burlesque star Cassandra Rosebeetle.
Rosebeetle (which by the way is one of the greatest names we’ve ever heard) is a figure skater/burlesque performer.
We’ll just let that sink in for a moment. She figure skates and she does sexy Burlesque striptease. Kind of makes you re-imagine the Olympics, huh?
Cassandra spent 15 years as a competitive ice skater and then set off on one of the greatest Burlesque resumes you’ve ever seen. She’s a dancer, a go-go dancer, a belly dancer and has even taken the old sideshow art of glass walking and combined it with Burlesque and dance.
Happy Friday! We hope everyone enjoyed the holidays – but the parties aren’t over just yet with NYE 2015 being just 5 days away! Now that everyone is full speed ahead into finalizing their New Year’s Eve celebration plans, we wanted to give you a fun way to win an entry into one of Borgata’s Nightlife’s epic NYE parties with Borgata’s #NYEnoHangover Twitter Sweepstakes.
Holiday 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).
It’s an impressive list of online items at great prices that you can check out here.
