REVIEW: Diana Ross Proves Why She’s Still The Supreme

D RossDiana Ross had one goal during her sold-out Friday evening concert at Borgata‘s Event Center: to slay.

And slay she did. The 72-year-old performer donned more gowns than one would find during an episode of Say Yes to the Dress during her 75 minute set and demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that she’s still got it in spades.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Dinner at Old Homestead Steakhouse May 6

Woodford Reserve Kentucky DinnerThe Kentucky Derby is the Super Bowl of American horse racing and this year’s running marks the 142nd year of the Run for the Roses.

And while you can experience all the excitement and action of the “fastest two minutes in sports” at Borgata’s Racebook, keep one thing in mind.

The Kentucky Derby has endured because it is much more than a simple horse race.

The derby exemplifies a sense of style and southern charm that has been preserved down for decades. As much as it’s about 3-year-old thoroughbreds, it’s also about mint juleps and traditional Kentucky cuisine. When they play “My Old Kentucky Home” at Churchill Downs, there’s 142 years of tradition on display.

We know a little about tradition here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and we know a lot about fine dining – especially at Old Homestead Steakhouse.

And Friday, May 6 – which is also the day the Kentucky Oaks is run – Old Homestead will become my Old Kentucky Homestead by teaming up with Kentucky bourbon distillers Woodford Reserve to present the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Dinner as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series.

Savor Borgata Presents ‘The World is Your Oyster’ at The Metropolitan April 23

The World is Your OysterFor fans of nature and the incredible diversity of life on our planet, may we present for your consideration the simple oyster?

Yeah sure they don’t run around killing gazelles like lions or soar above us like eagles. They just sort of sit there, in the bay, until somebody goes and digs them up.

But they’re still fascinating, living their little bivalve lives out in the water. Some of them are makers of pearls, providing us all with a safe gift choice for anniversaries. Some of them—called window pane oysters—have translucent shells that make nice, and much cheaper jewelry gifts all by themselves.

And of course, they’re mostly good eats.

Make that great eats. Wonderful eats

Hey, whatever they do out in the bay, it sure makes them tasty.

Here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa we’ve long celebrated the oyster by serving them in various delicious ways at The Metropolitan’s oyster and raw bar.

On April 23, we’re going to bump it up a notch by presenting The World is Your Oyster at 2pm, as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series. For this event, The Metropolitan will team oysters with another miracle of the modern world, namely beer (some wheat, some hops, some yeast and voila – beer).

Easter Specials at Borgata Baking Co.

Borgata Baking CompanyIn honor of Easter Sunday on March 27, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and most definitely Borgata Baking Co. present this little primer of fun facts on Easter treats to fill out your family’s Easter baskets.

Cupcakes – A small cake designed to serve one person. First showed up in an American cookbook in 1796 titled Ye Olde American Cookbook (We made the title up).

Easter Malt Ball Cupcake – The first malted milk treats were invented in the 1870s as an infant food. But people liked it so much, everyone started eating it – especially at the movies.

Caramel Cream Egg Pop – A pretty unique Borgata Baking Co. treat.

Cannoli – An Italian pastry dessert of the Sicily region. The singular is cannolo, meaning “little tube.” But most people use the plural as in “May I have more cannoli?”

Macaron – A French sweet meringue-based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond and Borgata Baking Co.’s Thaddeus DuBois’ specialty.

Bonbons – If it’s a small sweet candy, you can call it a bonbon.

Make Your Own Easter Bonbons from Borgata Chef David Krzewinski

Easter BonbonsWhen filling up an Easter basket, most of us tend to go with the store-bought standards – from peeps to chocolate eggs. As for our own creativity, we tend to reserve that for the hard boiled Easter Eggs and those little dye tablets.

But it doesn’t have to be that way as – with some help from Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Executive Pastry Chef David Krzewinski – you can make your own homemade Easter bonbons to put a personal touch into your Easter baskets.

It’s simple, delicious and another gem from Savor Borgata. And we promise these bonbons will make your Easter baskets the baskets everyone is talking about it. When their mouths aren’t full, that is.

Borgata’s Simon Poglein named to Top 40 Under 40 by AC Weekly

Simon PogleinOur friends at Atlantic City Weekly name their list of The Top 40 Under 40 each year — a tribute to young executives and community leaders throughout the Atlantic City area.

And once again, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is proud to have had one of our brightest young executives – Simon Poglein, Director of Database Marketing for Borgata – named one of the Top 40 for 2016.

Atlantic City Weekly joined forces with the Greater Atlantic City Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) in 2005 to establish the Top 40 Under 40 — a campaign designed to recognize outstanding volunteerism, community service, cultural enhancement and exceptional work ethics in sectors of society such as business, government, education, healthcare, hospitality and others.

We think Simon embodies those ideals perfectly and are delighted to see him recognized by the community. We had a Q & A with Simon to discuss his being named to the 2016 Top 40 Under 40 List.


Tell us about your background. How did you get to where you are today?

I’m originally from a rural part of Pennsylvania, located about 45 minutes East of Pittsburgh.  My college degree, a B.S. in Communications Media, was completed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in December 2002.  Both sides of my family, going back several generations, have traditionally vacationed at the Jersey Shore.  During one of those visits, I noticed a billboard for Borgata, advertising employment opportunities to ‘Work Someplace Different.’  I applied, and that is pretty much how my career in gaming began.  My initial position was at the My Borgata Center, followed by a subsequent move to marketing.  In 2013 I took a marketing position with Isle of Capri Casinos, where I was part of the opening team of Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Farmington, Pennsylvania.  Within that same year, an opportunity presented itself here at Borgata, and so I made my way back to Atlantic City.

What’s your favorite memory in your professional career at Borgata?

There are so many great memories, it’s hard to name a single favorite!  The best memories I have are from those events in which the entire team here at Borgata delivers on a truly special, one of a kind experience for our customers.  If I had to name one, Borgata’s Free Throw Basketball tournament held on March 21, 2015 was an event I will never forget.  It was the kind of day that makes working at Borgata such a unique and rewarding experience.
