And you can tell the celebration is underway with a quick look around Borgata’s Retail Plaza, where the Borgata Baking Company is setting up shop.
You see it in all the chocolate … lots of chocolate.
We’re talking nine-foot chocolate sculptures surrounded by carefully crafted chocolate flowers now on display at Borgata.
We call it the “Sweet & Whacky Edible Contraption” and it’s the handiwork of Borgata’s award-winning Executive Pastry Chef, Thaddeus DuBois.
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is Atlantic City’s leader in live entertainment and has put together another amazing summer schedule of live shows. From comedians such as Billy Gardell and Lewis Black to rock legends like Santana and John Mellencamp, Borgata’s summer line-up has got everyone’s tastes covered.
And that’s especially true if you’re feeling a little bit country.
Country superstars Keith Urban (July 17) and Darius Rucker (July 25) swing into the Borgata Event Center this summer.
Her current tour—which stops at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa June 27—has been grabbing headlines as if Twitter was made just for her.
Whether she’s showing off her half-shaved hairstyle with bestie Demi Lovato (actually, she dropped in on Lovato’s tour), sharing pics from a meet-and-greet with fans in Brazil or just releasing her latest video “Hello Kitty”, there’s hardly a moment when Avril isn’t being Avril online.
Packing for a vacation creates all kinds of possibility. There’s the excitement of visiting somewhere different and the anticipation of whatever fun activities lay ahead. And who doesn’t love falling asleep under crisp hotel sheets and fluffy pillows?
Unfortunately, one thing that’s difficult for many is making healthy eating choices while traveling. At Borgata in Atlantic City, we take dining seriously, whether you’re starting your day with a hearty breakfast, grabbing a light mid-day snack or celebrating a big win with friends. With carefully curated menus, our chefs offer multiple ways to enjoy a delicious meal that won’t inflate your waistline.
While visiting Borgata, or any vacation where you’re not in charge of cooking, follow these quick tips to keep you from rolling the dice when you step back on the scale.
Think about some of the things your Mom really likes—some peace and quiet in the afternoon, dirty socks actually in the laundry hamper and maybe, Heaven forbid, a little “Me” time for herself once a year.
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa can’t really help out with the socks, but we’ve got the other things Mom loves covered for this Mother’s Day, May 11.
Take for instance one of the most basic Mom wishes—a nice function where everybody (and that probably means you) actually behaves for a couple of hours, keeps their clothes clean and shows some manners.
Like, say a nice afternoon tea.

Here are Jamie’s picks for an authentic Atlantic City experience:
Wednesday, May 7, we start with the NJ Bartenders Ball for nightlife and service professionals at Mixx with music by DJ PS1 with Paul Castro.
Then, check out this weekend: PS1 returns to mur.mur Friday and Samantha Ronson spins at mur.mur Saturday. Meanwhile, Playboy model/actress/“View” Host Jenny McCarthy will host a special after-party at Mixx following her “Dirty Sexy Funny” performance at The Music Box May 10.
Let’s face it, everybody’s Mom could use a little pampering. You know, a nice day out at the spa filled with relaxation and treatments designed to relive the tensions of, well, raising and taking care of us.
And that wasn’t lost on the folks at Philadelphia Style Magazine which named the May (and June as well) specials at Spa Toccare one of “5 Mother’s Day Gifts for Every Mom.”
Specifically, the magazine named all Spa Toccare treatments as the perfect gift for the “Do it All” Mom, but singled out the special hydrating and exfoliating treatment of the Go Coconuts for Massage special.
