Dillon Francis at Borgata’s MIXX August 2

dillon-francis-203x185There are a lot of ways to describe the great DJs Borgata Nightlife brings to our nightclubs at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

House DJs are electro, tribal, progressive, tech.

Dillon Francis adds a category that you rarely hear—social media comedian.

Francis, who plays MIXX August 2 has made quite a name for himself as a comedian both on his website and through social media.

Really. The guy’s funny with posts about Doughnut Awareness week, the enormous pickle he likes to tour with and his top five sexiest Electric Daisy Carnival moments (1. Showing Off His Pickle In Front Of A Helicopter – Warning: HIGHLY DANGEROUS), among a million other topics.

“People always ask me about my social media antics and where I get my ideas. But that’s just how my crazy brain works,” Francis said in a recent essay he wrote for medium.com.

Even his new EP that’s about to drop is humorously named “This Mixtape is Fire,” after all of the fire mixtape memes around the web (he advises you not to handle it without protective equipment).

New mixtape you ask?

Yes, once again, Borgata Nightlife’s timing is perfect.

Francis has just unveiled the details for his much-discussed EP, a project that’s been a year in the making. It’s a seven-track that features some of the biggest names in electronic music including Skrillex, Calvin Harris and Chromeo.

Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga Triumph at Borgata

Tony Bennett and Lady GagaBorgata Hotel Casino & Spa has always been committed to its role as the leader in Atlantic City’s live concert and entertainment offerings. And we’ve made providing resort visitors with the best in summer entertainment a priority.

So we were pretty proud of ourselves to have presented Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett at Borgata’s Event Center on Friday, July 24.

This was a show that sold out in minutes back in February, and the two great entertainers did not disappoint.

Performing with a full orchestra, they opened the show with the classic, and fairly appropriate, “Anything Goes,” followed by their smash hit “Cheek to Cheek.”

It’s a rare thing to see an 88-year-old singer in Bennett hold his own with a 29-year-old singer in Gaga, but the reviews are in and Bennett’s voice was as smooth and pure as if he were 29 as well.

As Billboard Magazine said in its review:

“Even though Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga’s “Cheek to Cheek” duets album has been with us for nearly a year, nothing quite prepares you for the startling contrast and sheer delight of seeing the 88-year-old vocal legend and the 29-year-old pop icon onstage together, singing material written before Gaga’s father was even born.”

“So when a dapper Bennett and shimmery Gaga took the stage at Borgata’s Event Center on Friday night in Atlantic City, the novelty of the unlikely-yet-organic pairing didn’t wear off until after they’d finished a one-two-three punch opener of “Anything Goes,” “Cheek to Cheek” and “They All Laughed.”

For modern music fans, the idea of two star singers sharing a stage and swapping banter and mixing together classic song stylings might seem a little foreign, but it was much more common when Bennett started his career.

With Lady Gaga, Bennett has undoubtedly brought the idea back.

Our 10 Favorite Borgata Sandwiches

Porchetta Sandwich Fornelletto Six Hour Porchetta│Fornelletto Cucina & Wine Bar

This slow-roasted pork sandwich is only available on the restaurant’s weekly Wine Down Wednesday menu, but it’s totally worth a mid-week visit. Served with pan gravy, marsala wine mustard, and aged provolone, we are counting down the hours until we eat it again.

Borgata Online Winners for July 6 – July 12

battleship-203x185Sometimes, when perusing the big online winners each week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, you may think the really big jackpots only come to players who take big risks.

In other words, those that make big bets.

But a lot of online players like to make smaller wagers as they try out the various games and tournaments available at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com. And they hit jackpots too. Lots of them.

And this week, they hit some pretty big ones. Like say three jackpots of better than $3,400 on bets less than $10, including a $2 bet that netted a jackpot of just under $4,000.

Remember, it’s not always how much you bet, but making the right bet that counts.

We think Shakespeare said that. Or maybe it was Wild Bill Hickok. Anyway, somebody probably said it.

Here’s the big online winners for the week of July 6 – July 12:
