In the fast-paced world of Borgata Spas, few things are as hotly anticipated as the madcap, zany frenzy that is another Borgata Spa Experience—with our latest extravaganza scheduled for March 13 – March 18.
Let yourself go with these high intensity thrill rides at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa such as:
De-stress Massage – 50 min/$85

Enjoy one of our relaxing bath and body rituals. Borgata Bliss is available at Spa Toccare. Javanese Lulur is available at Immersion Spa.
Me Time Manicure/Pedicure – $95
Enjoy a Classic Manicure and Plush Pedicure at The Salon, then spend your day relaxing in the women’s spa lounge at Spa Toccare.
Ok, you guessed it, we we’re just funning about the whole high intensity thing (thought you were on Borgata’s Nightlife blog huh?).
If you’re sick and tired of the cold and are looking to thaw from the winter blues, this Friday, March 11, Borgata is offering an opportunity to heat up the start of your weekend with a living legend. Hollywood icon Sophia Loren will be coming to The Event Center, where she will share juicy inside stories about her decades’ long movie making career.
Atlantic City is a great place to dine out and at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa we’ve always been proud to be the leader in our resort’s fine dining choices.
So when they invented Atlantic City Restaurant Week—this year from March 6 to March 12—as a chance to celebrate the diversity and dining choices available here in Atlantic City, we made a quick decision. “We’ll be there with bells on.”
Well not bells (old expression). But we did decide to embrace the concept fully and participate at some of our best eateries—The Metropolitan and N.O.W. for lunch and Fornelleto, Izakaya and Wolfgang Puck American Grille for dinner.
If you’re not familiar with Atlantic City Restaurant Week, more than 70 restaurants around the city will participate by offering prix fixe meals (French for fixed price) for both lunch and dinner for the week. The lunch price is $15.16 and the dinner price is $33.16. Diners get to make choices from the prix fixe menu to create their meal.
And Borgata is offering the same deals for Restaurant Week.
For example, at Wolfgang Puck American Grille, your entrée choices for dinner are (along with a first course and dessert):
For the first time ever, Borgata was a corporate sponsor at the 2016 Human Rights Campaign’s Greater Philadelphia Gala on Saturday, February 27. The popular event, which featured many of the country’s premiere civil rights leaders,was held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown and included a silent auction and dinner.
Borgata’s Senior Vice President of Operations, Joe Lupo, who was in attendance, said that the resort’s support of the HRC was natural for Borgata.
“It stems from the very beginning that we want to create an environment that promotes equality for our customers and employee base,” Lupo said. “[The HRC] fit cohesively with this vision.”
For most of us, sugar is just something we keep in a bowl on the kitchen table. The extent of our creativity with it usually involves simply putting it on corn flakes or in our coffee.
For cooks and bakers, however, sugar is an ingredient and behind every decadent dessert and sweet treat there is. But it’s still pretty basic. Make dessert, add sugar.
Then there are master chefs, like Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois. For him, sugar isn’t something you keep in a bowl or sprinkle on cereal. Well, maybe it is if he’s having a quick breakfast, but for DuBois, sugar is also a medium, a material that can make exquisite art and a substance of profound beauty.
What we’re talking about are sugar works or sugar sculpture. It’s the art of spinning sugar into exquisitely intricate and delicate creations. The techniques have been featured on about a gazillion cable TV food shows, yet for most of us they are still as mysterious as Kanye West’s Twitter feed.
On Saturday March 19, however, Dubois and the Savor Borgata Series present “Spring Sugar & Easter Sweets“ at 1pm in Studio 1 at the Event Center.
Leap Day only comes around every four years, and we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa think everyone should take advantage of Monday, February 29.
After all, it’s a whole extra day—part of a 366-day year. Ok, it’s an extra Monday, but don’t let that get you down. There’s only 52 Mondays in 2016, just like most years.
But there’s only one February 29, and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa wants to help you make the most of it with these 29 ideas to make Leap Day special. At Borgata, we try to make every day special, but hey, Leap Day has inspired us.
Here’s our suggestions and Happy Leap Day!

On February 28, all eyes will turn to the Academy Awards presentations in Los Angeles as the whole country goes on a “beautiful people” watching spree.
And as everyone knows, the most fun comes before the awards are even handed out. We’re talking, of course about the red carpet, where we can all say things like, “Gee, not sure Jennifer Lawrence should have gone with the taffeta,” and “Leo’s tux just looks soooo much nicer than Bryan Cranston’s (yeah, it’s the tux).”
Ah yes, the beautiful people. Now most people around the country will be watching this glamour extravaganza in plaid pajama bottoms while eating a pint of ice cream. But here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we think the red carpet should be even more of a big deal. And most of all, we think you should be on a red carpet as well.
That’s why the Savor Borgata Culinary Series will present A Night on the Red Carpet at Wolfgang Puck American Grille starting at 6:30pm February 28, otherwise known as Oscar night.
Think about it. You get to watch the red carpet while taking in all the elegance of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at one of our premier dining establishments, Wolfgang Puck American Grille.
By the way, guess who’s providing the food for the post Oscars Governors Ball? Just a chef named Wolfgang Puck. Which means you’ll be able to sample the same food the big shots will get after the awards—before the awards.
If you liked variety, you clearly weren’t disappointed at this past Saturday’s raucous evening of drag at Borgata’s Music Box featuring the talents of Sherry Vine, Katya, Pandora Boxx, and Ginger Minj. The queens presented what can best be described as a naughty variety show for Atlantic City audiences, featuring everything from a partying Elsa from Frozen to a stripping Adele.
So, 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:
