Looking at the line-up of veteran stand-up comedians that perform here on the big Event Center stage at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, it’s pretty easy to see what the typical stand-up is shooting for.
And that’s a multi-faceted, multi-media career. Seems veteran stand-ups always have books to sell, TV shows to promote and manage to play great rooms like the Event Center.
Of course, it’s not just handed to them. First they have to make a connection with America.
And few comics have ever made the connection as well as Jeff Foxworthy, who plays Borgata’s Event Center August 23.
Just hearing the name, you’re mind goes to “You might be a redneck if…” Or maybe it was “Are you smarter than a fifth grader?” Or you’re thinking of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Or maybe it’s the “American Bible Challenge.”
Whichever one comes to mind, chances are you’ve spent a few very funny, down-home minutes with Foxworthy on your TV somewhere. Foxworthy even presents himself as a three-pronged attack—comedian, outdoorsman and just a plain old down-home “guy.”
He’s the largest-selling comedy-recording artist, a multiple Grammy Award nominee, and bestselling author of more than twenty-six books. He’s even launched a line of merchandise based around his “You might be a redneck” routines.
But for all his success as a TV host and unofficial spokesman for the south, Foxworthy has always made his stand-up—including the year’s with Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall and Ron White on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour—his main career focus.
There may be a small lesson in this week’s big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Namely, if you’re playing the Montezuma slots games at BorgataCasino.com, you should bet $6.
Hey it worked for Tracy from Middlesex and Jessica from Atlantic City who both made $6 bets on the Montezuma slots and hit jackpots totaling more than $14,000 collectively. Hey, a trend is a trend.
And let’s hear it for Jessica, who showed just how convenient Borgata online play really is. She’s our neighbor here in Atlantic City and still likes to play online.
As for BorgataPoker.com, our schedule of daily tournaments continues to pay off big for grinders.
So the biggest trend of the week—and every week—is winning.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for the week of August 3 – August 9:
There’s the exciting nightlife and clubs, the casino action, the relaxing and rejuvenating spa experiences and the great shows and dining. In short, Borgata is a great place to party.
But you may not realize that Borgata is also a great place for one of the most elegant and important events of your life. Namely, your wedding.
Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa along with The Water Club Hotel offers a uniquely Atlantic City ambiance for your special day—sophisticated, modern and with style that knows no equal.
Weddings at Borgata are custom-crafted by a dedicated team, with our wedding specialist providing personal attention to even the minutest detail.

Weddings at The Water Club feature signature wedding menus crafted by The Water Club’s culinary consultant, Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, and custom-designed wedding cakes by Borgata’s Executive Pastry Chef, Thaddeus DuBois.
And with the long-awaited passage of marriage equality in New Jersey, Borgata and The Water Club are excited to plan and host weddings for our LGBT guests.
You may know Darius Rucker as the lead singer of Hootie & the Blowfish, the mellow rock band of the 90s that put out a string of hits and one of the most successful American rock albums of the decade in “Cracked Rearview Mirror.”
Sixteen times platinum, the album featured four signature hit singles “Hold My Hand,” “Let Her Cry,” “Only Wanna Be with You” and “Time.”
And that would be plenty for any musician’s career. Really, we could stop now and just say that Darius Rucker of Hootie & the Blowfish will be playing Borgata’s Festival Park August 15, so c’mon out and party like its 1994.
Except that’s not the Darius Rucker who’ll be playing Festival Park. Well, it is—same guy—but Darius Rucker is now a bona fide country music star.
And by bona fide, we mean he has four consecutive hit country albums with a string of six No. 1 hits on the country charts — the first No. 1’s for an African American artist since Charlie Pride in 1983. He’s a member of the Grand Ol’ Opry and he has pulled off one of the greatest musical transitions in history.
In retrospect, the transition isn’t so shocking since Ruckus is from South Carolina and formed Hootie & the Blowfish while a student at the University of South Carolina.
Proud to call himself a southerner, his 2014 album “Southern Style” sums up a lot about how Rucker looks at life and music.

When it comes to music, it’s always a good idea to listen to a guy like Smokey Robinson. When it comes to Motown, well, listening to what Smokey says isn’t just a good idea—it’s the law.
Really, look up Motown law and it says “Just listen to Smokey.”
Last August, Smokey Robinson brought the Australian Motown group Human Nature to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for a series of successful shows. So this August, again with Smokey’s blessing, we’re presenting another series of shows from Human Nature August 14, 15, 16, 21 and 22 at Borgata’s Music Box.
Hardcore Motown fans have known about Human Nature for better than 20 years. Formed by four friends from Sydney—brothers Andrew and Mike Tierney, Phil Burton and Toby Allen—who had a love for gospel, soul and harmony, they’ve topped the charts in Australia with classics such as “I’ll Be There” and “Baby, I Need Your Loving.”
Firmly ensconced it Las Vegas these days, the group announced in June it would play an East Coast tour, mostly centered on its five dates at Borgata’s Music Box.
“Although our Motown Show is in residence in Las Vegas, we have an amazing fan base across America and always enjoy our tours here.” says Andrew Tierney. “It was in Atlantic City where our Motown show was first embraced by American audiences, and we are thrilled to tour the U.S. every chance we get.
The game show Jeopardy is one of those iconic pieces of American television which we all associate with really smart people and some pretty big money if a contestant goes on a winning streak.
And it’s also the show where if you don’t phrase your answer in the form of a question, well, you lose.
Jeopardy! The online slot games is one of those great games based on iconic themes found at BorgataCasino.com that we associate with jackpots. Just jackpots. No phrasing, no having to know who invented the xylophone. Just jackpots.
Linda from Allendale can attest to that, as she hit the big jackpot of the week of July 27 – August 2 on the Jeopardy slots, turning $12 into $4,113.
Over at BorgataPoker.com, our daily and special tournaments—which are played with our partners at Party Poker—continue to make the biggest payoffs. And this week BorgataPoker.com players owned the $50K Guaranteed Sunday tournament.
Sooo, the answer is: the best online casino site in New Jersey. What is BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com?
Here’s the big online winners for July 27 – August 2:
August is one of the months we live for here in Atlantic City and the Jersey Shore. Hot days and nights, everyone seems to be on vacation—even if they’re not—and a lot of action here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
The Borgata Poker Room is no exception as we offer up a bunch of special tournament events this month starting with our $200,000 Guaranteed Summer Heater Series August 10 to August 15.
This event features a $150 + $30 Big Stack (20,000 is starting chips) with seven opening flights. That’s right, seven opening flights going up to Day 1G on August 14.
Just keep in mind that the tournament is not a best stack forward event, so if you bag chips in one opening flight, you’ll forfeit them if you play in another flight. But if you bust, you have the opportunity to enter in multiple times throughout the week to make it the final day, August 15.
Here’s the structure for the tournament.
Other August tournament highlights include:
FEATURED TOURNAMENTS IN AUGUST

August is the time of year when a lot of homeowners take a look at their backyards and think, “You know, if we put in a nice patio or deck out here, we could have some great outdoor parties.”
That’s kind of what we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa were thinking when we put in our new outdoor concert venue Festival Park in time for summer 2015. Ok, it was probably more complicated than that and involved architects and technicians and plumbers and stuff, but that was basically the idea.
What we do know, is that the party hasn’t stopped since we opened the place in Borgata’s beautiful bay-side backyard. In fact, we’re still coming up with party ideas for Festival Park including Festival Fridays.
Basically, every Friday from now through Labor Day weekend we are having a big old free outdoor party presented by our friends at 100.7 WZXL radio, the best rock radio station in the Atlantic City area.
There are two words that best describe the line-up for Festival Fridays. Free—‘cause these are free parties—and tribute, because we’re talking about a line-up of great rock tribute bands.
We can say that now that we launched Festival Fridays on July 31 with Philbilly, a fantastic contemporary country music band. So basically we started with a hootenanny.
But the rest of the schedule is devoted to tribute bands for some of the greatest classic rock bands ever.
