At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we love it when local boys make good. Well, local as in “from New Jersey” as the EDM group Cash Cash—from Roseland, New Jersey—makes its way onto the stage at MIXX February 28 as part of its Surrender Tour.
No, they’re not giving up, but rather touring on the strength of their latest chart topper “Surrender”, featuring Julia Michaels, the follow up to their hit “Take Me Home.”
“Surrendering is usually seen as something negative or like a sign of defeat, but this song shows a completely different side of it,” band member Jean Paul Makhoulf recently told RyanSeacrest.com. “Sometimes it’s the fight that kills you, sometimes you don’t even know what you’re fighting for, sometimes surrendering is what sets you free. And I think this song is definitely a great example of that.”
The song is definitely putting the group—comprised of brothers Jean Paul and Alex Makhoulf and Samuel Frisch—on the fast track for 2015 as it climbs the charts (hitting No. 1 on Dance Radio), backed by the recent release of a its slightly NSFW new video.
Chocolate may be the unofficial flavor of February as about a gazillion pounds of it are sold each Valentine’s Day, but what may surprise you is the unseen health effects the old fruit of the cocoa bean can give you.
To quote our buddies at Wikipedia, in general chocolate and cocoa is considered to be a rich source of antioxidants such as procyanidins and flavanoids, which may impart anti-aging properties. Chocolate and cocoa also contain a high level of flavonoids, specifically epicatechin, which may have beneficial cardiovascular effects on health.
Well’ our experts at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Toccare and Immersion spas knew (Not to mention The Salon and Barbershop). Just check out our spa specials for February.
There’s the Hot Chocolate Wrap with Marshmallows, a Cherries and Chocolate Facial and a Chocolate and Strawberries Pedicure, just to name a few.
Sounds delicious doesn’t it?
Of course, most people think chocolate’s main health effect is that if you eat a lot of it, you gain weight.
Eat it? Hey, we think way too far out of the box at Borgata’s spas to just leave it at that.
Here’s a look at the February Spa Specials at Borgata.

In 1973, when a teenage Marie Osmond released her No. 1 country hit “Paper Roses”—her first released single—some may have written her off as just another Osmond—albeit the prettiest—on the scene.
And really, how long could this Osmond thing go on?
Turns out for a pretty long time. Going on 42 years now.
Marie Osmond has been a lot of things in her career—singer, actress, author, doll maker, TV host (including the Miss America Pageant), Broadway star and a screenwriter. Whether singing with her family, her brother Donny or as a solo act, Osmond has endured a lot longer than any paper rose.
On March 13 Marie Osmond brings her solo show to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa performing at The Music Box.
It’s important to note that this is a solo show at Borgata as Marie is so closely associated with her brother Donny. The two have performed together as an in-house staple at Las Vegas’ Flamingo Hotel since 2008 with one of the most popular shows there.
But in Atlantic City, Marie will take The Music Box stage offering up an intimate evening dubbed “My Life Through Music,” exploring a career that started with an appearance on The Andy Williams Show when she was only three years old as part of the Osmond Brothers (though she rarely performed with the group through her career).
Since then, it’s easier to list what Marie hasn’t done in showbiz than what she has.
February was always a big month for George and Martha Washington as well as Abe and Mary Todd Lincoln, what with Valentine’s Day and George and Abe’s birthday both being in February.
And so, the Washingtons and Lincolns partied down in February. George and Martha would give each other colonial-era-appropriate gifts like molasses candies (in heart-shape boxes) and some nice wood varnish for George’s oral hygiene (you know, wooden teeth.) Then they’d have cherry pie.
Abe would give Mary agita and she famously gave him little wood log pieces he could make toy log cabins out of, hence the birth of Lincoln logs. Then they’d pitch pennies, which was like throwing little Lincoln commemorative medallions around.
Now, of course, it’s entirely possible that none of this really happened—because we totally just made it up—but the point is when February lines-up Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day together on the calendar, it’s time to party.
And nobody does holiday weekend parties like Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, where this year we get to combine both our romantic Valentine’s offerings with the star-packed entertainment and promotions of another Presidents’ Day Weekend in Atlantic City.
From Friday, February 13 to Monday, February 16, Borgata has something for everyone.

A look at the big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com for January 26 to February 1 shows that sometimes old adages actually hold up.

Nothing beats a winning streak at Borgata’s online games.
And who knows? Your winning streak might start at any moment.
Here’s the big online winners for January 26 to February 1:
– On January 27, Donna from Franklin Lakes, New Jersey won a $45,000 jackpot playing the IGT Monopoly Level Up Plus slots game at BorgataCasino.com. She then tried some of Borgata’s new games and won $5,970 playing the IGT slots game Black Widow and $3,260 playing the Williams Interactive slots game Glitz.
– On February 1, Jesse from Voorhees, New Jersey finished second in the Sunday $50,000 Guaranteed Poker Tournament (played with our partner Party Poker) and took home $6,800 at BorgataPoker.com.
– JohnnyDrama won over $4,100 with six cashes in weekly major events, including two separate second place finishes at BorgataPoker.com. His largest cash was a $1,491 second place finish in the $100 buy-in daily NLH $10,000 Guaranteed tournament (Friday, January 30).
There are certain things you always have to admire about a rock star who has been making hits since the 1970s and still keeps going.
Endurance, sure … adaptability, OK … talent, of course.
Versatility—now that’s the key.
Take a guy like Mike Rutherford, one of the founding members of the rock group Genesis.
Right off the bat that’s enough for a career—to be one of the founding members and bassist for 70s (and 80s) rock giants Genesis, a group inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
But in Rutherod’s case, it’s much more than that. After all, he’s been bassist, rhythm guitar and lead guitar for the band as well as one of the group’s principal song writers through all of Genesis’ incarnations.
That’s the Peter Gabriel Genesis and the Phil Collins Genesis.
Rutherford wrote the lyrics for some of the band’s biggest international hits, such as “Follow You Follow Me”, “Turn It On Again”, “Land of Confusion” and “Throwing It All Away”.
So that’s pretty versatile right? Enough to make you want to see Rutherford and Genesis at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa right?
Wrong. Genesis isn’t coming. Rutherford is coming with his other band Mike & the Mechanics on March 6 at the Music Box.
As Valentine’s Day approaches on February 14, thoughts of how to stage the perfect date for a significant other fills the heads of boyfriends and husbands as well as partners, wives and girlfriends.
OK, for many of the boyfriends and husbands, this will happen on February 13, or maybe even Valentine’s Day morning. For others—capable of planning ahead—busy schedules could throw up a roadblock.
Either way, a lot of Valentine’s dates are going to end up being a dinner at a chain restaurant with a seven-hour wait—or maybe just a bucket of chicken (Do they make heart-shaped chicken nuggets?)—followed by watching Love Actually (or some equally appropriate rom-com) on DVD.
And how about if you’re single? Another Valentine’s Day with Ben & Jerry may be on the horizon.
It doesn’t have to be this way, not with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa around. We’re announcing our February Hotel Packages and, as you’ll see, they are designed for romance and partying (Valentine’s day is on a Saturday this year, after all). So let us do the planning for you.
For Valentine’s Day, we’re offering a special package we’ve dubbed Single & Fabulous, designed for those who see Valentine ’s Day as a good excuse to get the crew together and go clubbing (as if there’s a bad excuse). It’s always better to face the day with friends, especially at Borgata Nightlife’s happening clubs.
