Believe it or not, this winter of 2015 is scheduled to end. On March 20, spring begins, whether or not there’s still snow on the ground or the temperature is stuck in the teens.
And when spring comes, it will finally be time to take a well-deserved break and wash away all the stress and harshness of another winter—not to mention the effects of harsh dry winds, biting cold and all that street salt that’s in the air.
So exactly how do you go about that? Once again Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has the answer with our perfectly timed Borgata Spa Experience week from March 22 – 27.
It’s a week of specials and special events at Borgata’s spas Toccare and Immersion that has a little something for everyone.
First up, every day of the Borgata Spa Experience from 10am to 5pm will feature special skin analysis and body sampling demonstrations featuring the products and services offered at Borgata’s spas.
Each demonstration also offers up special discounts on spa services.
Check out the event schedule.
Borgata Spa Experience also features a list of specials and treatments starting from $85 at our spas as well as The Salon and The Barbershop.
At Borgata, we know how to welcome spring.
Here’s a look at the Borgata Spa Experience specials:
What do Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neil and Dwight Howard have in common?
NBA greats? Yes. Offensive juggernauts? Yes.
Couldn’t shoot free throws if their lives depended on it? Well, maybe not that bad, but yes.
Hitting free throws is a singular art—just ask Steve Nash, the all-time NBA leader in free throw percentage. But as anyone who remembers the hack-a-Shaq years knows, shooting free throws is the one basketball skill that’s not necessarily hogged by pro ballers.
Everyone who has ever walked onto a basketball court (or for that matter a driveway court) can impress at the free throw line, even if you couldn’t dunk with a ladder. And it’s that skill that we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are tapping into as we announce our first ever skill-based casino promotion.
You guessed it, we’re having a free throw contest.
The Borgata $10,000 Guaranteed Basketball Free Throw Tournament will be held at 10am on Saturday, March 21 in the Signature Room. The groundbreaking new game, which has been approved by The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement as part of its “New Jersey First” program is the first of its kind anywhere in the country.
“As Atlantic City’s market-leading resort destination, we believe that it is important that Borgata continue to play a dynamic role in the implementation of original and revolutionary programs,” said Borgata President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Ballance. “We appreciate the progressive thinking of the Division as well as their encouragement as we begin to introduce social and skill-based gaming options to a new generation of players.”
When Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa holds a Japanese Suntory Whisky Dinner as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series at Izakaya Modern Japanese Pub on March 20, it’s going to be the latest chapter in an amazing story.
Just that sentence alone should tip you off to how amazing it all is. After all, Japanese whisky?
Japanese Sake—well, sure. It’s what the country is famous for. Even Japanese beer is pretty well known. But Suntory whisky, a legitimate western style whisky distilled in Japan may come as a bit of surprise.
It did to the Japanese as well, but still came about due to the amazing story of Suntory founder Shinjiro Torii.
Torii’s story starts off with his study of the traditional Sake and sweetened wines as he opened his own shop in 1899—long before Japanese culture began embracing the west. Torii developed a love of western whiskys and soon exhibited a flair for the stuff to the point of being nicknamed “the nose of Osaka” (which is just a great nickname whatever the context).
To make a long story short (you can read more about Torii’s career at www.suntory.com), Torii introduced his first true whisky in 1929, a single malt whisky nicknamed Shirofuda that defied an army of naysayers who felt that true whisky could never be distilled in Japan.
More than 85 years later, Suntory whisky is still around and thriving and now comes to Borgata to meet up with Izakaya and Borgata Celebrity Chef Michael Schulson, who has prepared an amazing (there’s that word again) menu to highlight four of Suntory’s brand name whiskys.

Considering that March is Women’s History Month, we don’t know if it was serendipitous (cool word huh?) inevitable or just plain lucky, but Borgata’s big online winners for March 2 to March 8 shows that when it comes to online play, women rule.
That’s three big female winners at BorgataCasino.com and better than $32,000 in jackpots.
Meanwhile, our BorgataPoker.com winners took home another $13K in tournament wins.
Your turn may be next.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s big online winners for March 2 – 8.

One of the great words in the English language is festival.
Sure, we all like a party, a gathering, a shindig, a hootenanny, but everybody really loves a festival. They’re just so much … bigger.
We have festivals of lights, of heritage, of various fruits and vegetables and most of all, we have outdoor music festivals.
And this summer, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is going to be festival central as we announce plans for a new outdoor concert venue scheduled to open this June.
It’s name – Festival Park.
That’s right. Borgata, already the leader in live casino concerts in Atlantic City is going full-on outdoor music festival crazy this summer.
And as a leader in entertainment—including Borgata’s partnership with Live Nation Entertainment, one of the best live concert promoters anywhere—we’re already working on a line-up of events that will take Borgata Entertainment to a new level.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to enhance and grow our already tremendous entertainment offerings through funding by the CRDA and a wonderful partnership with Live Nation,” said Tom Ballance, President and Chief Operating Officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “Upon our entry into the market in 2003, Borgata set the bar for entertainment and nightlife in Atlantic City, so it is only appropriate that we raise it yet again with the addition of this substantial project.”
When it comes to stand-up comedians, you always kind of wonder what they’re going to talk about onstage.
You know, will it be that observational humor—What’s up with kitchen magnets?—or are they the storyteller kind of comic—One time I went to a Red Lobster with my friends and ordered chicken, well let me tell you.
With Kathy Griffin, who appears at Borgata’s Event Center March 14, you know exactly what she’s going to talk about – celebrity dirt.
It is storytelling, but storytelling with backstage celebrity buzz and gossip … you know, the good stuff.
Fans of Griffin and her gazillion Bravo comedy specials—including her 2011 special “Tired Hooker“ filmed on location at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—get the inside dirt on everything Griffin sees, hears and experiences as she works her way around Hollywood on the D-list.
Which makes it all the more interesting that she’s been mysteriously quiet on the recent controversy at–and now her decision to leave–E’s “Fashion Police.”
We don’t want to hit this too hard on our friendly little blog—you can Google it—but we just have to wonder, how long can Griffin ever stay quiet about anything?
If you’re all about playing for big money, then you’re going to want to clear whatever you’re doing on Sunday, March 15th. That’s the date of the next BorgataPoker.com $100,000 Guaranteed tourney.
For the same $200 buy-in, you get twice the guaranteed prize pool and way more adrenaline rush with every deal.
While the $100K isn’t until the 15th, there’s good reason to play multi-table tourneys right now at BorgataPoker.com. Aside from the obvious chance to conquer a tourney and walk away with a big cash prize, we’re handing out $7,800 in leaderboard cash and prizes. You’ve got until March 31st to make your way to the top, so play now.
