Since first bursting onto the punk scene in the 1970’s, Elvis Costello has been making music for nearly 50 years. That may seem like simple fact, but it took on a special relevance for the large crowd that saw Costello play Saturday at the Borgata Event Center.
Recently, Costello, now 62, has been drawing on a song catalog that has gained him distinction as one of the best songwriters of the last 50 years for a series of solo dates he dubbed a “Detour.” In that vein, Costello used his Borgata Event Center appearance to launch a two-week set of dates with his band the Imposters dubbed “The Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers Tour,” highlighting his 1982 album Imperial Bedroom.
For an enthusiastic Borgata crowd, it was chance to see Costello’s emotional and deepest songwriting at his best, interspersed with just enough go-to hits to keep the crowd singing along.
There are few things in the American culinary palate as time honored and cherished as ground beef sandwiches served in endless varieties.
In other words, Americans really love hamburgers!
We make them in our kitchens and at cookouts and we go out to eat them or just grab a sack on the way home from work. And we eat hamburgers a lot. It’s estimated that the average American eats three hamburgers a week and as a country, we consume 50 billion hamburgers a year. That’s billion, with a “B.”

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…
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!”
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:
Fall is upon us and that means only one thing – its pumpkin time! Throughout the 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.
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…
