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.

Bryan Buttler – OUT at Borgata’s New Blogger

Brian ButtlerWelcome to the new OUT at Borgata blog! My name is Bryan and I’m excited to be curating the content of this area for our readers. We’ll be bringing you not only great behind-the-scenes previews of entertainment, dining, and experiences at Borgata, but also some wonderful stories of local LGBT organizations and leaders in the region who are making a real impact.

A bit about me: I grew up in New Jersey and currently live in Center City Philadelphia where I write on the arts for a number of local and national publications. I’ve also covered gay news for over two years and have become quite familiar with a number of people, places, and things that are noteworthy for LGBT folks. Additionally, I am a professor of communications in South Jersey, so I am quite plugged in to the region. In my spare time, you’ll find me enjoying the performing arts (opera is my guilty pleasure), practicing yoga, traveling, and enjoying good meals and mixology.

Borgata’s January Spa Specials

January Spa Specials2016 is here. And it’s going to be pretty amazing.

There was a time when just the thought of the year 2016 sounded pretty futuristic. We all expected to be driving flying cars and zapping up whole turkey dinners in our hydrators.

Instead, it’s another new year after a busy holiday season that’s left us with tired feet, knotted up shoulders and flaky skin. And we had to cook the turkey.

What’s so amazing about that? Well, Borgata’s Spas are what.

Our January Spa Specials offer the perfect start to the New Year and promise to massage, exfoliate and hydrate (see?, Futuristic) you back into shape.

This month we’re also offering a new hair ritual from Kerastase and euphoric foot runs. That’s right, euphoric.

Here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we’re ready to help you start the New Year in style, help you keep that resolution to take better care of yourself and let you enjoy some much-deserved pampering.

2016 is looking pretty amazing.

Here’s our January specials at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa:

Savor Borgata Presents Wine And Chocolate, Perfect Companions February 13

Wine and ChocolateAt this point, it’s pretty much agreed by the world that chocolate goes with everything. We can eat chocolate at any meal and in any combination.

We’ve covered every nut and fruit with chocolate, every sweet, chewy center we could think of and anything else that wasn’t moving. You can even get chocolate covered bacon.

But there is one area of chocolate matching that might surprise you—and that’s with wine. You’re probably aware of dessert wines, but even so, you might still think of wine and chocolate as strange palate fellows.

Well, then we have an event for you.

The Savor Borgata Series presents Wine and Chocolate, Perfect Companions on Saturday, February 13 at 11:30 am at 28 West, just in time for your Valentine’s Day meal.

Explore the savory side of chocolate with a five-course lunch featuring Brix Chocolate for Wine, the first chocolate specifically blended to complement wine.

Brix Chocolate for Wine covers all of your favorite chocolate types from milk chocolate to dark.
