Watch Mayweather vs. Pacquiao at Borgata May 2

Mayweather vs. PacquiaoThe boxing world is all abuzz these days as we count down to the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao fight May 2 from Las Vegas.

And rightly so. A fight this big hasn’t come around in years.

Call it the “Fight of the Century” (Hey, we’re 15 years into the century now), as this welterweight championship fight between eight-division world champion Pacquiao and undefeated, five-division world champion Mayweather is a boxing fan’s dream—one that’s been stewing for more than five years as details of the fight were worked out.

And while the super fight may have been banished to the dusty confines of Nevada, Borgata and Atlantic City are right on top of the action. In fact, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers up the best viewing package you’ll see on the East Coast.

Tickets to our private big screen viewing at The Music Box on fight night went fast, but that hardly leaves fight fans out in the cold.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is transforming itself into Mayweather vs. Pacquiao land as the fight will be on our screens all over Borgata.

Borgata Online Winners for April 13 – 19

Raging Rhino Game ScreenshotOne of the great things about online slots these days are the cool themes the games employ. You get things like Kitty Glitter, Biker Pigs and Going Nuts (with an appropriate squirrel theme).

It’s all so much more creative than the old-school bells and cherries.

So you gotta love it when you hear that one of BorgataCasino.com’s newest games from Williams Interactive—Raging Rhino—scored one of our big online jackpots for the week of April 13-19.

Clearly, a relaxed rhino or a recalcitrant rhino wouldn’t have been the same.

It’s also the second time in two weeks that a WMS game has hit a big jackpot shortly going online. Just nine days after going live, the slot paid out close to $18K.

Now that’s a rewarding rhino.

Here’s the list of big online winners for April 13 – 19.

BorgataCasino.com:

– On April 16, Scott from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, did a $6 spin playing the Monopoly Level Up Plus slots game and won $3,680.

Borgata’s Water Club Hotel – An Exercise in Elegance

The Water ClubAtlantic City regulars have made Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa the number 1 casino hotel destination in the area since 2003. And it’s easy to figure out why. With Borgata’s headliner shows, great nightlife, first class dining, casino and poker room, how could anyone doubt it would become the leader in Atlantic City?

But Atlantic City insiders also know that it was in 2007 when Borgata truly became a complete destination with the opening of The Water Club Hotel.

Just check out the amenities at The Water Club, which completed the $600 million master plan for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

The 43-story, $400 million hotel features 800 guestrooms and suites; Immersion, a two-story spa on the 32nd floor, 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space; three Residences modeled after chic, urban lofts; five heated pools – indoor and outdoor, each offering a distinct experience; and boutique retail shops including Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli and Fixation, while offering direct access to and from Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.

That’s straight out of the brochure, but anyone who regularly stays at The Water Club will tell you there’s so much more to the experience than a simple list can convey. In a word, it’s elegance.

The Water Club offers two room styles—the Vista Room and the Club Room.

Check out this resume for a Vista room:

Tony Orlando at Borgata’s Music Box May 15

tony-orlandoWhen push came to shove, even Geraldo Rivera knew who to turn to when he needed to pack in an audience during the final challenge of “Celebrity Apprentice.”

He went with Tony Orlando.

Because really, who doesn’t love Tony Orlando?

If you were around at all in the 1970s, the mere mention of Orlando’s name starts the tune “Knock Three Times” playing in your head.

Of course, that’s just one of the hits Orlando, now 71, will bring with him to Borgata’s Music Box for a May 15 concert (not to mention one of the great mustaches in entertainment history).

Orlando’s run with two different incarnations of Tony Orlando and Dawn (most famously with Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson) produced a number of hits that have a way of sticking in your head such as “Candida,” “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You).”

From there it was a successful TV run with “The Tony Orlando and Dawn Show” and 70s super-stardom.

Not bad for a former singer who had found a career in the business and producing side of music before being lured back to performing.

Margarita Madness at Gypsy Bar May 2

Margarita MadnessHere’s a quick riddle, appropriate for the fast approaching Cinco de Mayo celebration at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

What do former Zeigfield dancer Marjorie King, ambassador’s daughter Margarita Henkel and Dallas socialite Margarita Sames have in common?

Never heard of them you say? Yet, you may regularly imbibe their namesake every time you have a Margarita.

Yep, all three are said to be the inspiration for the tequila cocktail the

argarita at various times and at various Mexican bars in the late 30s and early 40s.

Even singer Peggy Lee (Peggy being a nickname for Margaret) can stake her claim to one of the many origin stories—this time in Galveston, Texas—that surround this cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice.

And who’s to say who’s right or wrong and which Margarita started it all?

What we do know, is that there’s no better celebration of the Margarita than at Borgata’s Gypsy Bar, where the Savor Borgata Series will offer up Margarita Madness at 4pm Saturday, May 2. For $39, the event features Casamigos Tequila at Borgata’s rock n’ roll Tequila bar where you can mix and mingle while sipping on Margaritas and noshing on small bites.

Wendy Williams at Borgata’s Music Box May 9

Wendy WilliamsChances are, you think you already know a lot about Wendy Williams, one of the most versatile TV and radio personalities to come along in quite a while.

You know her as the host of the nationally syndicated talk show “The Wendy Williams Show.” But that’s an easy one.

You also probably know she was a major radio star for better than 23 years. Again, easy.

You may even know she’s a proud Jersey Girl—make that Jersey Shore girl—from Ocean Township, New Jersey up around Asbury Park (which named a street after her).

And, of course, she’s a television producer, has her own line of wigs, is a romance novelist and author of seven books, has appeared on Broadway, movies and TV shows, was a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars” and is a stand-up comedian.

Hey, we said she was versatile.

Now if you knew all that, congrats, you are a bonafide Wendy Williams fan. But we’re betting that for many of you, that last one—stand-up comedian—caught you off guard.

Well, come to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Music Box Saturday, May 9 and you’ll see what we’re talking about as Williams brings her stage show to Atlantic City.

Williams debuted as a stand-up last year in Las Vegas fulfilling a life-long dream and completing some of the challenge to do something special for her 50th birthday by her show’s producers (Another challenge, driving a monster truck).
