Bob Saget at the Music Box October 25

bob-saget-blogAt this point, the truth is out there about longtime comedian Bob Saget, who appears October 25 at the Borgata Music Box.

Yeah, yeah, he played good-natured dad Danny Tanner on the hit TV sitcom “Full House” from 1987 to 1995. And he was also the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” from 1989 to 1997. Since then he’s been a game-show host, the voice of narrator Ted Mosby on “How I Met Your Mother” and a regular on “Entourage.”

So that’s a pretty family friendly resume. But if you think that you’ll see a family friendly stand-up act from Saget at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in October, you haven’t been paying attention (the “Entourage” credit should have tipped you off).

Saget’s blue comedy and obscenity-laced stand-up act is as famous as anything he ever did as the loving dad Danny Tanner.

Just google “America’s Filthiest Home Videos” if you don’t believe us to see a short Saget recently did on the web series Speakeasy from Made Man. But make sure you know what you’re getting into. “Blue” may be too subtle a description.

Take a Fall Getaway – Borgata Style

fall-getaway-packageHere’s a poorly kept secret about Atlantic City. For all of our fun-in-the-sun summer reputation, the fall may be the best time to “DO AC”.

The weather stays nice well into October, the ocean stays warm even longer and the city is still cooking with shows and events right into the winter and beyond.

Leading that charge is Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. The outside temperature may start cooling, but Borgata is still heating up with a full lineup of Borgata Nightlife events, great comedians at the Borgata Comedy Club, great dining and four-star shows at the Borgata Event Center and Music Box.

So if you missed that summer getaway (or even if you didn’t), a fall getaway to Borgata can be just as great. And even more so with our special Fall Getaway Package.

October Spa Specials at Borgata

october-specialsAh October. It’s the season of the pumpkin and their friendly orange glow is everywhere.

They’re on our porches, in our window displays and gathered in bunches at road-side stands. And they’re mild fall flavor is spicing up everything from pies to our double latte grandes.

And, of course, they make for a great facial.

Yes, you read right—a great facial.

Pumpkins, it turns out, are really, really good for you. They’re filled with vitamin A, E and C and loaded with powerful enzymes that help cleanse the skin. As a matter of fact, that whole orange glow thing comes from carotenoids, wrinkle-fighting plant pigments that help neutralize free radicals in the skin, keeping them from damaging the cells that fast-forward aging.

Plus, pumpkin has hydrating properties and are a good source of fiber.

But back to the benefits for your skin, something we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa know only too well at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa. Our October spa specials feature a healthy dose of this seasonal treat, not because it’s seasonally trendy—you can get that effect just with a couple of jack o’ lanterns—but  because pumpkin is a skin-cleansing, wrinkle-fighting dynamo.

Old Homestead Ferrari-Carano Wine Dinner October 10 in the Borgata Culinary Series

ferrari-carano-dinnerSit back a moment and let us at the Borgata Blog tell you a couple of love stories. Not your conventional boy-meets-girl love stories—though there is some of that—but the stories of how great restaurants and great vineyards are born.

We start with Don and Rhonda Carano, two restaurateurs who went looking for some fine California wines to serve in their Reno restaurant. As so many before them, they not only fell in love with the wine, they fell in love with California’s wine country—specifically the Sonoma Valley.

So in 1981, they became not only restaurateurs, but vintners as well, buying an initial 60-acres and founding the Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery in the Alexander Valley. In 1987, when they released their first wines, they started their run as one of Sonoma’s principal winemakers; famed for their wide selection of wines and their picturesque vineyards.

Now here’s an even older story. It’s the story of the Sherry family and their long love affair with the Old Homestead Steakhouse, which dates back to Manhattan’s beef packing district in 1868. The Sherry family acquired the restaurant in the 1940s, when Harry Sherry, who started out there as a dishwasher, bought it and made the place a family business. Now that’s loving your job.
