Celebrate Leap Day, February 29 at Borgata

Leap DaySo, 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:

An Evening With Sophia Loren at Borgata’s Event Center March 11

Sophia LorenIf you could pick one person in history to spend an evening talking with, who would you pick? Einstein, Churchill, Martin Luther King?

Now let’s refine the game. If you could speak to one Hollywood legend, who would it be? Cagney, Bogart, Orson Welles?

One last question, if you could speak to one acting legend and the sexiest, most exotic creature to ever grace a cinema screen, who would it be?

There’s only one answer – Sophia Loren. The first two questions were a fantasy, but thanks to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, an evening with Sophia Loren can be very real as she comes to Borgata’s Event Center for an intimate onstage conversation and Q&A.

That’s right, the Sophia Loren, Oscar winner, international star and Hollywood legend will be on the Event Center stage answering questions about her legendary career. The appearance is part of a limited tour Loren is making in the U.S. titled “”An Evening with Sophia Loren.”

“She’s doing a small run throughout the country,” Joe Lupo, Borgata’s senior vice president of operations recently told Atlantic City Weekly. “We’re very fortunate to have her, and we’re really looking forward to this event.”

Who wouldn’t? Just trying to run down Loren’s better than five-decade career is like preparing a term paper on film history.

Loren’s career as an international film star started in the late ‘50s after a successful run in Italian films when she signed with Paramount pictures in 1958. Among her films at this time were “Desire Under the Elms” with Anthony Perkins, based upon the Eugene O’Neill play; “Houseboat,” a romantic comedy co-starring Cary Grant; and George Cukor’s “Heller in Pink Tights.”

The Isley Brothers at Borgata’s Event Center March 12

The Isley BrothersSongs in movies have a way of marking the times of people’s life, or more precisely, the great parties of people’s lives.

For anyone who can remember the 70s—if you can, you probably weren’t at too many parties though—you may vaguely recall dancing to the song “Shout” about a thousand times, which if course came from Otis Day and the Knights in the film  “Animal House.”

Well, actually no. “Shout” was a 1959 release from The Isley Brothers. Otis Day was a made up band.

Or maybe you remember in the 80s dancing along with Ferris Beuller to the Beatles “Twist and Shout.” Well, again it was an Isley Brothers hit first, though in fairness they covered the song as well, which was originally recorded by the Top Notes.

Or maybe, back in the 70s again, you just danced to “Who’s That Lady,” another Isley Brothers smash.

The point is, you’ve been partying to The Isley Brothers a lot longer than you realize and on March 12 you can do it in person when The Isley Brothers Featuring Ron and Ernie Isley appear at Borgata’s Event Center with special guests The Manhattans featuring Gerald Alston & Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes.

Borgata’s February Spa Specials

February Borgata Spa SpecialsAs we like to say when February rolls around, sweets for the sweet. And that’s the theme surrounding Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s February spa specials, as we present a host of relaxation treatments that employ chocolate, strawberries and brown sugar, among other sweets.

Now at this point, any Shakespearian scholars reading this are probably annoyed that we’re misquoting “sweets to the sweet” from Hamlet.

So yes, the line is from Hamlet and has nothing to do with candy and is in fact, used in a kind of depressing way within the play. (You can look it up if you must know.)

But we’re not about that here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and our spa treatments are designed to relax, re-invigorate and generally recharge you in the bleakness of winter. And, of course, with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we’ve tailored February’s specials to couples and romance.

We’ve also put a heavy emphasis on chocolate this month, which even Shakespeare couldn’t make depressing. That’s probably why there are no famous Shakespearian quotes about chocolate. (Well, that and the fact that chocolate as we know it hadn’t really taken hold in Europe during his life.)

So we’ll turn to a great 20th Century writer—Charles M. Schultz, the creator of Charlie Brown—for a quote that sums up our February specials:

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”

Here’s a look at Borgata’s February Spa Specials:

Big Game Specialty Drinks at Borgata’s Long Bar

Big Game CocktailsIt’s a battle for the ages, or rather, a battle of the ages. Sunday’s Big Game features the old pro against the young upstart, the tale of two great defenses and a golden celebration of 50 years of championship football.

And it could mark the last hurrah for one of football’s all-time greats.

Dramatic is it not?

Fortunately, football drama comes with a solid dose of “hey, time to party,” and none of the stress and seriousness of, oh let’s say, a presidential election.

So we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and especially at Long Bar, have devised the perfect way to party—signature drinks representing your chosen team. It’s one thing to toast the great career of Peyton Manning, and another to acknowledge the rising star of Cam Newton, but it’s just downright cool to do it with the delectable cocktails designed by Long Bar’s mixologists.

Here’s our starting line-up.
