double-double-bonus-poker-gameIt’s always fun to check out the big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, partly because they divide so nicely – slots winners at BorgataCasino, poker winners at BorgataPoker.

Borgata Spa Week October 9 – 14

spa-experience-2015-203x185Here’s a fun fact. Every time you spend a relaxing hour or two at Borgata’s spa’s getting one of our signature massages, you’re engaging in something that people have been doing for more than 4,300 years.

Really, the first indication of massages was found in the Tomb of Akmanthor (also known as “The Tomb of the Physician”) in Saqqara, Egypt which has a depiction of two men getting foot massages. The tomb dates to 2,330 BC.

By 700 BC massage was a pretty standard practice in Asian medicine, so the point is it’s been around a long time. Couple that with the ancient Greeks love of baths, and you get the history of spas…

How-to with Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian: The London Refresher Cocktail

London Refresher (GZ)There are a lot of skills that go into bartending and creating the perfect cocktail. There’s mixing, stirring, squeezing (as in lemons etc.) shaking, blending and a host of other ways of bringing together all of the flavors in a cocktail.

But one of the all-time best has to be muddling, such as we see in today’s cocktail recipe from The Water Club’s Culinary Lifestyle Consultant and Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian.

It’s called the London Refresher, and it calls for muddling. That’s muddling, not muggling, which comes from that other English import Harry Potter.

No, muddling, to be precise, is to mix together, especially confusedly. In this recipe, you get to muddle away on key ingredients before adding the liquor – gin, of course, it is the London Refresher. In this case, you’ll need a muddling stick (really, it’s a bartender tool, much like a pestle). Then you just muddle up the ingredients and add the gin.

New Slots Hit Borgata

reel-swee-stacks-1080x1080You have to figure that one of the great tech jobs available today is coming up with themes for modern slot machines. Today’s slots are graphic heavy with computer and video screens, cool bonus rounds and full system audio.

It’s got to make the old-school guy who thought of bells and cherries a little jealous.

For example, consider these new slots that have debuted at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa from Aristocrat games – Rhino Charge, Reel Sweet Stacks and Rich, Rich Chocolate. Even the titles of these games make you want to play…

Asher Conniff: One Of The Best Summers Of My Life

AsherHey all, definitely been a while since I checked in on the blog. I’m going to try and get a lot more of these out there from now on … I’m hoping to find a nice mix of writing about some things poker strategy-related, some things BorgataPoker.com-related (there are so many cool promotions being run by them right now, and some amazing new additions to the live casino as well!), and some things related to life traveling as a poker player.  For now, I thought it would be smart to start with a quick recap of my recent World Series of Poker experience…

Top Reasons for Making a ‘Fall Escape’ to Borgata

fall-escapeLabor Day is upon us and that means we’re all gearing up for the fall season after another long, luxurious summer in Atlantic City at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. That’s assuming, of course, you managed to get away this summer and enjoy a little down time.

Autumn is the season when we all seem to reboot. It’s back to school, back to work, back to the daily grind. Sure, there’s some good stuff like football season, new TV shows, fall foliage … but it also means shorter days, leaves to rake, driving the kids to soccer practice and an ever-shrinking amount of time for holiday shopping.

You know, just thinking about it makes you want to plan another getaway … a fall escape … a fall escape to Borgata. We are, after all, the getaway specialists and we’ll let you in on a little secret – autumn is a beautiful time of year in Atlantic City and along the Jersey Shore.
