Samuel Adams was an American patriot and founding father known for his part in organizing the Boston Tea Party in which American revolutionaries dumped tons of British tea into Boston Harbor and replaced it with Summer Ale and Boston Lager. Then, a great time was had by all.
Ha, ha. Just a little humor at the Borgata Blog. Really, they replaced it with Samuel Adams new Rebel IPA craft beer.
Kidding again, there was no beer at the Boston Tea Party (well, at least none anyone will admit to), but Samuel Adams was the inspiration for Samuel Adams Brewery, which has quickly become one of the most successful craft beer brewers in the U.S.
And Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is hooking up with Samuel Adams Brewery at 28 West this Saturday, August 16 for a special Beer and Bites tasting event.
Ok, that may have been a long way to go to highlight another great Borgata food and beer pairings event, but Samuel Adams connection to history just brings it out of us.
At this point, the Borgata Poker Open, scheduled for September 2 – 19, doesn’t need all that much of a publicity push.
If you play live poker, you know what the Borgata Poker Open is. It’s simply the biggest poker event on the East Coast, a record setter for the World Poker Tour and one of the most anticipated two and half weeks of poker anywhere.
For grinders, it’s really all about scheduling the tournaments you want to play.
Online registration is open for all main events, so let’s look at that schedule.
The Open begins September 2 with Event 1, a $2 million guaranteed, $500 + $60 opening event that includes five opening sessions split between September 2 – 4. The first event of the Borgata Poker Open is always the most well attended and the Borgata Poker Room has been adding opening sessions to accommodate the huge field for the last few years.
Get ready to pass Go in Monopoly Dream Life by IGT, BorgataCasino.com’s latest addition to our online slot game suite. Monopoly Dream Life is a hugely popular online slot with a modern twist on the classic board game that’s been around for generations.
Forget that colorful Monopoly money that isn’t worth anything in the real world. Buying and selling property in Monopoly Dream Life could lead to a real cash payday when you play for real money at BorgataCasino.com.
The game is super-easy to play. There are 20 paylines and a huge variety of symbols. Symbols of the game include the mustache sporting Monopoly man himself, the monopoly hat, dog, ship, car and the bonus symbol. Your goal is to place your bet, spin the reels, and wait for the game to come to a stop.
While some of our slots offer variable paylines (meaning you can select between one payline and the max) Monopoly Dream Life is fixed, so you get to play all 20 paylines at once. Feel free to adjust your bet using the arrows on the Line Bet tab, located on the bottom bar. You’ll get paid out if your symbols match up on any of the 20 paylines.
Monopoly Dream Life is extra special thanks to three bonuses designed to reward you more often.
When it comes to music, everybody knows how to describe their favorite styles. And it usually just takes one simple phrase … I like jazz. I like hip hop. I like R&B and so on.
Pretty clear and everybody knows what to expect.
And then there’s funk.
Think about it. It’s kind of hard to describe funk. It’s jazz, rap, R&B, hip hop, soul and even rock all rolled up into one.
Yet somehow, you still know what to expect—great music, especially when it comes from a hard-edged funk act like Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.
Trombone Shorty appears August 29 at Borgata’s Music Box.
Most of Borgata Nightlife’s resident DJ’s are in demand, but how many can claim to be the most sought after DJ in the world?
Well, at least according to GQ, which dubbed him “the most sought after DJ in the world” and it’s pretty easy to see why. DJ Ruckus plays more than 180 shows a year, is a resident DJ in nightclubs around the country including exclusive destinations in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Atlantic City (at MIXX at Borgata) and Atlanta and has played private shows for celebrities including Adrian Brody, Christina Aguilera, Diddy, Magic Johnson and Steven Tyler.
He also provides the music at exclusive parties for corporate clients including Calvin Klein, PlayStation, Prada and Virgin and fashion shows and film premiers around the world.
It all started when he received some turntables for his 14th birthday. In just a couple of years he was headlining at some of the biggest clubs in his native Miami and playing private parties for Diddy in Morocco.
We’ve all seen wine aficionados going through their routine as they sample their classic wines.
You know—the swirl in the glass to check the color, the sniffing of the bouquet, the swishing of the wine in the mouth to pick up its accents and flavors.
It’s one of the great joys of wine selection and part of the education Vintage Wine Boutique at The Shoppes at The Water Club has always given would-be wine connoisseurs.
As for beer drinkers, well, that’s a little different right? The main taste element is whether it’s cold; it’s hard to see the color and sniff the bouquet from a can isn’t it?
Au contraire, mon amie.
At Vintage, we take beer as seriously as we take our classic selection of wines. And so we’re introducing a new line of craft beers guaranteed to turn any beer drinker into a connoisseur of the hops. These are beers so finely crafted, they stand up to scrutiny as well as any fine wine.
It’s August, the last of the full summer months, and the Borgata Poker Room is playing out the dog days with a new line-up of poker promotions.
First, Borgata introduces its new Splash the Pot promotion on Tuesdays throughout the month. Two qualifying tables will be selected every 30 minutes to receive $100 for the pot from 11:30AM – 4:00PM. A total of $2,000 will be awarded each Tuesday to 20 randomly selected tables.
So basically, you’re sitting at a table playing in a Bad Beat Jackpot qualifying Cash Game and one of our poker room staff just comes over and throws $100 in the pot. And this happens around the room 20 times each Tuesday afternoon.
Plus, we’re bringing back our popular Borgata Buffet offer. For every five Borgata Poker tournaments you enter, from August 1-31 you will receive a complimentary Borgata Buffet.
We don’t mean to spoil your weekend, but it’s August 1st and that means summer is pretty much halfway over.
The good news? That “Sizzlin Summer” feeling can last all year long with Borgata’s $100K sweepstakes. We just drew 10 weekly winners earlier this week for our latest cash draw. There’s another draw for $4,500 in cash next week, and then five more weekly draws. With each draw, the prize pool grows – all the way up to $10,000.
Cash is great, but for the ultimate summer, you want cool prizes. That’s why on Tuesday, we’re pulling names for our first monthly draw. First place wins a Sea- Doo Spark + Trailer. Second place wins a Beach House Rental. Third and fourth place get a Borgata Luxury Weekend. The prize giveaways continue until 45 winners are crowned.
