DJ Mustard at MIXX January 17

DJ Mustard at MIXXThere are a lot of great DJ monikers in the world, even if a lot of them don’t make sense. But when they do, that just makes things sweeter.

Take the case of Dijon McFarlane, known as DJ Mustard (Dijon … get it) who plays MIXX January 17. He appears with Doug Grayson with an opening set by Heavy Hitters DJ Mark Da Spot.

AS DJ Mustard explains on his website, the Los Angeles-born native has coined the “ratchet” sound, bringing a hot, new and different sound to hip-hop.

The style is an up-tempo, club oriented, catchy yet a basic melodic hip-hop style.

In just three years, Mustard has put together a string of hits for the likes of Tyga (“Rack City”), 2 Chainz (“I’m Different”), Young Jeezy (“R.I.P.”), Kid Ink (“Show Me”), Y.G. (“My Hitta”) and nabbed collaborations with Fergie, Jennifer Lopez, Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz and more.

Mustard executive produced YG’s debut album “My Krazy Life” which peaked #2 on Billboard 200, #1 R&B/Hip-Hop, & #1 Rap charts. (Mustard recently said the two are “homies” again and have settled their well-publicized public feud, btw)

In 2014, DJ Mustard took over the airwaves with a peak of seven songs hitting the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the same time. His debut album, 10 Summers was the most downloaded album during the summer of 2014 on Google Play.

Borgata’s Winter Escape Package

Borgata Winter Escape PackageThe first winter storm has hit the East in 2015 and, as you’d expect, it led to some pretty predictable problems.

There was a lot of shoveling, salting and sliding on the roads going on, not to mention more than a few fender benders. There was also a lot of bundling up, but still freezing anyway.

People are sneezing, sniffling and coughing and we’ve all been reminded of that horrible seasonal visitor called the wind chill factor. That’s when a slight breeze makes it feel like you’re standing on the North Pole.

There’s ice on the windows, the sidewalks and sometimes it feels like its in your very soul.

And the worst part? Only two and a half more months to go.

Let’s face it, at some point we all need to escape winter’s grip, even if for just one night. And there’s no better place to spend that night than Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

Borgata offers up a special winter escape package Sundays through Thursdays designed to beat back the winter blahs.

Staring at $169 a night, you get an overnight stay in a classic room at Borgata, a $100 Dining Credit, two tickets to the Comedy Club at the Music Box and complimentary in room WiFi.

MIXX Winter Music Series: Chuckie Jan. 9, Nervo Jan. 16

ChuckieWant 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.

NervoChuckie, 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.

Extend the Weekend with mur.mur Mondays

This is How we MondayAh, 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?

No.

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 …

January Spa Specials at Borgata

january-spa-specialsThe 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.

The Burlesque Show Holiday Edition at Borgata’s Music Box

Holiday Burlesque ShowBorgata’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.
