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.

Great Deals Tuesdays in October at Borgata

tuesdays-octoberAh Tuesday. It’s the third day of the week and the second day of the work week.

But that’s not why it’s called Tuesday. The name actually come from a Viking god of war named Tiw, so it’s Tiw’s day. Kind of like Thursday is named after Thor and so on.

In Latin the name was associated with the Roman god Mars, so that’s why in Spanish its Martes. Because Spanish is a Latin-based language.

More than you wanted to know?

Well, we just mention it because Tuesday has another meeting this October at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. In simple terms it’s just the greatest weekday ever to win big and party with us here in Atlantic City.

First up, slots players can enjoy 2X Slot Dollars every Tuesday all day at Borgata in October. Plus, it’s a whole month of Toll Free Tuesdays on the Atlantic City Expressway (inbound tolls only).

Online players at BorgataCasino.com can also get 2X iRewards Points from noon to 8pm every Tuesday. Play any slots, classic slots or progressive slots and you’ll earn double iRewards Points (iRPs).

Howling Good Time with Wild Wolf & Wolf Rising at BorgataCasino.com

wild-wolfAt BorgataCasino.com, our goal is to keep you on your toes by adding exciting new games to our online slot game collection. Today, we’ve got two brand new games that will leave you howling like mad – Wild Wolf and Wolf Rising from IGT.

Wild Wolf
Wild Wolf is much like the Wild Wolf game you might have seen on the floor of Borgata in Atlantic City. Only now, you can growl at the moon, sharpen your claws, and snag some big jackpots from home.

When it comes to paylines, Wild Wolf has a lot of them to sink your teeth into. We’re talking 50 paylines, giving you lots of chances to line up symbols and land a big one. Wild Wolf also has the famous Stacked Wilds feature. With each spin, the reels are automatically populated with a bunch of consecutive Wild symbols to help you win more than you’d expect.

Our favorite part about Wild Wolf is the AutoPlay feature. When you activate it, you can sit back and relax while the software does all the spinning for you.
