Watch ‘DO AC July 4th Fireworks’ from Borgata Sunday, July 6

fireworks2Atlantic City has always known how to put on a Fourth of July celebration, but 2014 promises to be a celebration of a lifetime as the city conducts one of the largest free fireworks shows anywhere in the country.

Dubbed the DO AC 4th of July “Sky Concert,” the citywide show will feature more than 10,000 fireworks shells launched from three barges—two in the ocean off the Boardwalk and one located in the marina section of the city.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, with its marina location, offers one of the best vantage points to see the show. Our viewing area will open at 6pm outside Borgata’s North Entrance surface lot. The show is scheduled for 9:30pm.

The DO AC July Fireworks is presented by the Atlantic City Alliance, which is supported by all of Atlantic City’s casinos, and is created by one of the country’s largest fireworks companies, Pyro Spectaculars by Souza.

Wayans Brothers Live Heats Up Borgata in July

When it comes to great entertainment families, it’s usually pretty easy to figure out who is the dominant player in the mix.

For example:

Who’s your favorite Jackson brother? Michael.

Who’s your favorite Marx Brother? Groucho.

Who’s your favorite Kardashian? (For the sake of argument, let’s call them an entertainment family) Anyway, it’s Kim.

Who’s your favorite Wayans Brother?   … Hmmmm. Not so easy.The Wayans Family

Come July 20 at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, you won’t have to choose as the Wayans Brothers Live appear at the Borgata Event Center. That’s Keenan, Marlon, Shawn and Damon all on the same stage in what is described as a hybrid stand-up/sketch comedy show. Make that a hilarious stand-up/sketch show.

Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature at the Borgata Music Box in August

Human NatureWhenever you think of Australia, there’s always a few things you can count on—good beer with good mates, giant shrimp on the barbecue, kangaroos, and bands that keep the spirit of Motown alive.

Wait, what? Motown?

If that caught your attention, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa would like to introduce you to Human Nature, an Aussie group dedicated to that classic 1960s Motown sound. Human Nature will be performing at Borgata August 8, 9 & 10 and again August 15 & 16 at The Music Box in special performances presented by Smokey Robinson.

Yes, the Smokey Robinson. That’s how Motown these guys are.

Celebrate National Steakhouse Month at Borgata

Steak and Red WineYou have to hand it to June. According to various sites on the internet—always an impeachable source—June is a month jammed packed with special observances.

Consider that June, among other things, is National Accordion Awareness Month, National Adopt a Cat Month and National Aquarium Month. Which is all well and good as we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa love cats, have several beautiful aquariums on property and even have been known to enjoy a polka or two.

But it doesn’t stop there. June is also a month to honor lots of food, from dairy products to fruits and vegetables to candy, all of which we serve with great exuberance at Borgata. And it’s also National Steakhouse month …  hmmm, steakhouses.

Borgata knows steakhouses.

Take a Dip in The Water Club’s Pools

The Water Club Outdoor PoolSo, it’s June in Atlantic City at the South Jersey Shore and people’s thoughts are beginning to drift to one thing—time for a dip in the pool.

Ok, technically, Atlantic City is surrounded by tranquil bays and this thing they call the Atlantic Ocean. And yeah you can swim in it. And yes, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa takes advantage of the area’s beautiful beaches (Look for our daily beach shuttle to the beaches in Brigantine Beach starting in July).

But, here on the marina-side of Atlantic City, Borgata and The Water Club do pools—big, luxurious, sand-free, seagull-free, little-hermit-crabs-that-bite-you-free pools (ok, that last one doesn’t really happen anywhere, but you get the idea).

Borgata and The Water Club offer guests six beautiful pools including the Borgata pools and gardens at Spa Toccare and the lap pool at Immersion Spa.

But it’s at The Water Club that you really get that summer pool experience.

Go Classic at 28 West Piano Bar at Borgata

Piano KeysSometimes a name is just too perfect to ignore.

You have to figure that if you’re looking for the classic piano bar experience, you can’t do better than a guy named Dr. Bobby Fingers playing at a classic piano bar like 28 West at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

You know, you walk in, eye the dame sitting in the dark corner, saunter up to the piano, put a sawbuck in the brandy snifter/tip jar thing and say “Play it Fingers. Play something to make her swoon.”

Or maybe you don’t live in a 1940s film-noir movie and you just order a Yeungling and wait for Dr. Fingers to break into a sing-along of “Some Kind of Wonderful.”

Either way it works.
