Named one of the Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Borgata is extremely proud to share that we received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2016 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation – America’s largest…
Did they have cranberry sauce that was perfectly shaped like a can? Did they put marshmallows in the yams? Oysters in the stuffing?
Well, no, but by all accounts it was a pretty good feast of turkey, waterfowl, venison, fish, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, and squash.
Of course turkey was the big popularity winner on that menu down through the years and even Alexander Hamilton—the guy on the $10 bill—proclaimed that “no citizen of the United States should refrain from turkey on Thanksgiving Day.”
We here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa love being part of the Thanksgiving dinner tradition and unlike many restaurants that close for the day, Borgata Dining is open and serving up turkey dinners at our fine dining restaurants.
And we don’t skimp on dessert either. We don’t know if the Pilgrims baked those fruits and berries into pies, but we do know that Borgata Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois makes the best Thanksgiving pies.
That includes apple crumble, pumpkin, and cherry for $10 and pecan for $12. Order in person at Borgata Baking Co. and the pies will be available for pick-up starting at 11am Tuesday, November 24 through 6pm on Thanksgiving Day.
The pilgrims never had it so good.
And for those who come to Borgata’s Music Box on November 28 to see singer and “Dancing With the Stars” star Andy Grammer, we guarantee you’ll know what we’re talking about.
Shortly after the concert, we envision a few thousand Grammer fans walking around Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa softly singing “Nah, nah, honey I’m good. I could have another but I probably should—Not.”
And maybe not all that softly. That’s what happens when a singer hits on a relationship anthem that touches the public’s heart, and has a great musical hook.
The success of the single took even Grammer by surprise, but not because of the subject matter.
“I think anyone in a relationship has to deal with temptation, if they’re being honest with themselves,” the married Grammer recently told radio.com. “People don’t talk about it very much but it’s very honest. Guys and girls both have temptation.

There’s ginger and spice, apple pie a la mode, and pumpkin, just to name a few autumnal faves. They’re so prevalent this time of year, they permeate the air and we feel them in our very skin.
So at this point, you may be wondering if you’re mistakenly reading Borgata’s dining blog.
Nope, this is Borgata’s Spa Blog because in November, fall spices take over even in our famed spa treatments and massages at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa. And there’s a reason that spices like ginger and pumpkin make us feel so revived at the holidays. Like many natural ingredients, each spice has its own health benefits.
Ginger, for example—long known as a treatment for nausea—also has a warming effect that stimulates circulation. Meanwhile, pumpkin helps neutralize free radicals and can help prevent wrinkling and vanilla bean is chock full of important minerals. Apples, of course, are about as healthy a fruit as you can find.
And you thought they just made great cookies and pies.

Looking through the upcoming concerts at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, you might think that an Evening with Alan Cumming on November 14, at Borgata’s Music Box might make for a peaceful, pleasant evening with the Broadway star.
Especially if we tell you that Cumming himself bills the evening as “Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.”
Doesn’t that sound like a peaceful event?
Only if you’re not familiar with Alan Cumming—at least on stage. Since he sprang on the scene playing the master of ceremonies in the 1998 Broadway re-adaption of “Cabaret,” Cumming has been one of the most energetic and unpredictable stage presences in American theater.
Sappy songs huh? Here’s a description of the show from the NY Times review.
“Nothing, however, prepared me for the emotional firestorm that Mr. Cumming detonated at Tuesday’s opening-night performance of his nightclub show ‘Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.’ ‘Have a hankie ready,’ he advised early in the evening while flashing a subversive Mephistophelean grin whose message read: You know and I know that underneath our decorum, we’re all ravenous sexual beasts and hooray for that!”
That’s Alan Cumming, one of the hardest actors/singers to pin down into a neat stereotypical role. The Scottish born performer has been seen on American film screens (starting in 1997 with “Romy and Michelle’s Wedding“) and TV screens in a host of roles from “Spy Kids” to his current role on “The Good Wife.”
