At this point, it’s pretty much agreed by the world that chocolate goes with everything. We can eat chocolate at any meal and in any combination.
We’ve covered every nut and fruit with chocolate, every sweet, chewy center we could think of and anything else that wasn’t moving. You can even get chocolate covered bacon.
But there is one area of chocolate matching that might surprise you—and that’s with wine. You’re probably aware of dessert wines, but even so, you might still think of wine and chocolate as strange palate fellows.
Well, then we have an event for you.
The Savor Borgata Series presents Wine and Chocolate, Perfect Companions on Saturday, February 13 at 11:30 am at 28 West, just in time for your Valentine’s Day meal.
Explore the savory side of chocolate with a five-course lunch featuring Brix Chocolate for Wine, the first chocolate specifically blended to complement wine.
Brix Chocolate for Wine covers all of your favorite chocolate types from milk chocolate to dark.
It’s no secret that BorgataPoker.com enters 2016 as the #1 online poker site in New Jersey. Ongoing promotions like The Grind coupled with frequent leaderboard competitions and contests have made choosing BorgataPoker.com over the competition a no-brainer.
But as impressive as Borgata’s online offering is, it’s what’s happening at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City that’s pushing more and more players to shuffle up and deal on their Macs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets.
New Jersey’s top live casino is home to five Borgata Poker Open events each year that have attracted players from all over the world — including big names like Daniel Negreanu, Anthony Zinno, and Jason Mercier.
There’s the Borgata Spring Poker Open (April), Borgata Summer Poker Open (June/July), Borgata Poker Open (September), and the Borgata Fall Poker Open (November). Kicking off each year is the Borgata Winter Poker Open (January 19 – February 5, 2016).
The 18-day live tournament series features millions of dollars in prize money, including the live-streamed $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship, live streamed $2 Million Borgata Winter Poker Open Deep Stack kick-off event, a $1 Million Borgata Winter Poker Open Deep Stack event, and more. It’s arguably one of the most anticipated live poker series of the season and BorgataPoker.com has tickets to all three big events.
Starting January 4th, online poker players can snowball a $5 online poker entry into a seat in a live tournament with multi-million dollar prize pools this month. Or perhaps seats — multiple seats — just like Asher Connif, a poker player who won his Borgata Spring Poker Open seats online and conquered not one but two tournaments at Borgata in Atlantic City. More on that in a minute.
First, let’s talk about the future — one that’s going to include a record number of online poker players from BorgataPoker.com seated in several events at this year’s Borgata Winter Poker Open. BorgataPoker.com has put together a daily qualifying schedule to help funnel more players into the live series:

Happy New Year to our Borgata online players!
With the holidays over and a couple of months of winter ahead of us, it’s only natural to start dreaming of the return of spring.
In 2016, however, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa isn’t just getting ready for a normal spring, we’re preparing for the hottest spring Atlantic City has ever seen as we open our brand new $14 million, 18,000-square-foot Premier Nightclub.
You’ve been waiting to see what will be unveiled to continue Borgata’s reign as the hottest nightlife spot on the East Coast, and now we can tell you.
Designed by Josh Held (Marquee NYC; TAO Las Vegas; Voyeur Los Angeles), Premier Nightclub will create a theatrical experience for partygoers.
As guests enter the nightclub, they will be welcomed into an ornate, yet modern scene with tiered booths focused on the DJ booth, stage, and digital proscenium. The main room will be flanked by two 35-foot-long bars with carved-stone faces and pierced-metal and mirrored back bars. An internal monumental staircase with hand-welded bronze filigree will take guests upstairs to the horseshoe-shaped mezzanine. A custom 6-foot-diameter disco ball will shine as the grand showpiece in the heart of Premier, surrounded by a first-of-it-kind 25-foot-diameter chandelier made from programmable light.
In a word, it will be fantastic. But then we are Borgata.
Once a month, BorgataPoker.com doubles the size of its $50K Sunday tournament—which is already the largest weekly tournament guarantee in New Jersey—to $100,000.
That makes for some of the most exciting online poker tournament action in the country and on December 20, the $100K attracted 552 entries and a $110,400 prize pool.
For the winner, screenname whattupboosh, that was a $19,066 win just in time for Christmas.
Our next Sunday $100K is scheduled for January 31. It could be our biggest ever.
Here’s a look at the big online winners at Borgata for December 14 – 20:
– On December 16, John from Robbinsville, New Jersey, won $3,030.25 after placing an $8.50 bet on the Fire Queen slot game.
– On December 20, Venkata from Lawrenceville, New Jersey, made a $15 bet on the Jeopardy! slot game and won a $3,165 jackpot.
– On December 20, Tim from Runnemede, New Jersey, made a $4 bet on the Zeus III slot game and won $4,821.60.
‘Tis the season of giving and we’re celebrating with something better than your average stocking stuffer.
On December 25th, 26th, or 27th, sign in to your BorgataCasino.com account on your PC or Mac and click the Promotions tab. Then, opt in to the Season of Giving promotion.
We’ll present you with a nice little holiday card. Just click it to find out what’s inside. It could be worth as much as $1,000 Bonus Dollars.
