In 1981, anyone who bragged of having a good record collection (yes, vinyl records still ruled) had a copy of Foreigner 4.
Cleverly titled as it was the fourth album from the British/American arena rock gods Foreigner, the album included some of the group’s most iconic hits including “Urgent”, “Waiting for a Girl Like You” and “Juke Box Hero”.
An entire generation of air guitarists alone playing “Juke Box Hero” helped propel the album to more than 6 million copies sold in the U.S. and a 10-week stint at No. 1 on the album charts (which was a record for Atlantic Records artists). Worldwide, the album sold more than 9 million copies.
(Note for younger people: Music fans used to buy entire albums at once, which came in a cardboard sleeve. Or at least a cassette tape. No downloads.)
Those were heady days, and Foreigner and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are bringing them back again with special October 3 & 4 performances of “The Best of Foreigner 4 & More,” an homage to the band’s most successful album ever. The shows will be held at Borgata’s Music Box.
The two shows are the last U.S. stop on Foreigner’s current tour before the band heads off to Europe. The band will debut an entirely new set consisting of the best of Foreigner 4 along with several other chart hits.

Contrary to what you may have been hearing, Atlantic City is alive and kicking and ready to celebrate the end of summer with its 3rd Annual Atlantic City Seafood Festival September 13 & 14.
September is always a great month in Atlantic City with beautiful weather and events such as the Borgata Poker Open and the Miss America Pageant underway. But the Seafood Festival celebrates one of Atlantic City’s 365 days a year, 24/7 attractions—namely unbelievable seafood and dining experiences.
So it should come as no surprise that the fine dining leader (casual dining as well) in Atlantic City, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, will be right there at the festival offering up some delectable dishes from our line-up of celebrity chefs and fine restaurants.
The festival may be across town at Bader Field, but we’ve got trucks and portable kitchen equipment, so no worries.
Here’s a look at what you can experience at Borgata’s booth:
The 2014 Borgata Poker Open has started out with another amazing turn-out for its opening event as 4,158 entries were made in Event 1 to start two and a half weeks of tournament action.
That’s better than $2 million on the line for one event and millions more spread over 50 events from September 2 to September 19, including the $3 million guaranteed WPT Borgata Open Championship starting September 14.
But even with thousands of grinders vying for all that cash, there’s one thing poker players are always ready to do—and that’s give a little back to the community.
So this year’s Borgata Poker Open features two charity events with one honoring a long-time friend of Borgata Poker—and the poker world in general—and the other from the newly formed Charity Series of Poker.
Event 14, September 12, is the inaugural Mike Sica Memorial Seniors Tournament to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Sica passed away in November at age 69 from cancer. A WSOP Bracelet holder and a fixture at Borgata poker events, Sica was an East Coast pro known for his big heart, easy smile, trademark coordinated outfits and ever-present container of toothpicks.

Did you ever check out a wine label? There’s a lot of key information on a wine label that goes far beyond what type of wine it is and the year it was harvested.
Important info to be sure, but perhaps the key point of any wine is where it’s from—not just the country of origin, but the region where it was made.
It’s one thing to say a wine was made in Italy. It’s another to say it was made in the province of Piedmont in the northwest corner of Italy.
Such a wine may be a Piemonte Barolo, one of a range of wines made from the Nebbiolo grape. That alone tells a wine aficionado that this rather light-colored red wine will be wonderfully fragrant, with traditional notes of bitter cherry, earth and even roses.
Or if a wine is made in Tuscany (Toscana), then it comes from an Italian province known for some of the world’s most notable wine regions including Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. In Tuscany, the Sangiovese grape (red) holds sway, yet many towns may have slightly different versions.
All online slots pay you out when you win, but every now and then you come across a gem that showers you with larger-than-life rewards. Golden Goddess, our new 40-payline online slot game from IGT, definitely fits into the latter category.
A bold statement? Not when you consider that Golden Goddess comes with a very impressive Super Stacks feature which is designed to send even more unexpected payouts your way. More on that in a second.
First, let’s talk about what this game is all about. Golden Goddess puts you right in the middle of a true fantasy world that celebrates the very best of Greek mythology. The 5-reel slot game portrays a romantic story set in ancient Greece. To make the game come alive, there’s an abundance of rewarding symbols including a White Dove, Horse, Man and Goddess. There’s also the familiar 10, J, Q, K and Ace symbols too.
Now, Golden Goddess may be themed around a fantasy world, but the types of rewards you can land are very, very real. It’s all thanks to the slot’s Super Stacks feature. Each reel contains a number of different symbols, but as soon as you hit the spin button, one symbol on each reel is randomly selected to fill every spot on the reel. That creates a Super Stack and when the same symbol ends up hitting on multiple reels, you’ve got a huge opportunity to win a lot of cash.
