Go Exotic at Extreme Eats November 7 at The Water Club

extreme-eatsLet’s say, for argument’s sake, you were really hungry and feeling really adventurous at the same time.

You want something different—not your 1 millionth pizza or cheeseburger, not your 500,000 meal of pot roast and mashed potatoes. And you’re also a little sick and tired of what passes for standard restaurant fare out there with the endless salad bowls and unlimited cheesy bread sticks.

No, you want adventure, excitement, a new taste sensation. Like you were on a gastronomic safari.

Well, would you eat alligator?

How about rattlesnake? Snails? Duck tongue? Wild boar?

Avacado and mint ice cream?

Ha, you say. Not in a pig’s ear. Really, how about if the pig’s ear came Vietnamese style in a summer roll with a roasted cashew sauce?

Let’s face it, you know you would.  That’s just the kind of dining adventurer you are and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has the perfect dining adventure for you

Welcome to Extreme Eats, a special dining event at Aqua at The Water Club Hotel that’s part of Savor Borgata’s Weekend of Savoring and helps cap off Borgata Restaurant Week. The event starts at 7:30pm at Aqua on Friday, November 7.

Borgata Restaurant Week November 2-7

restaurant-weekWhen Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa was looking to highlight the amazing dining and restaurant options we offer here in Atlantic City—not to mention our incredible line-up of chefs—we decided to offer a series of events, demonstrations, and special deals at our dining venues.

Thus was born the Savor Borgata Series. Of course, first we had to come up with a name for the series.

After rejecting the “Them’s good eats at Borgata” series and the “Chow down until you bust at Borgata” series options, we decided to go with the more refined, Savor Borgata Series title (which we were absolutely thrilled someone thought of).

It was the perfect name for the series of occasional wine tastings, chef demonstrations, cook-book signings or special restaurant deals.

Except, as time went on, it became clear that you, the savorers (the ones who savor?), wanted a lot more than an occasional event. No, once you start savoring, you never want to stop.

Well, we heard you.

The annual Savor Borgata Restaurant Week at Borgata is November 2 to November 7.

Halloween Costume Contests at Borgata Nightlife Start Oct. 27

halloween-costume-contestsThere’s a definite art to the perfect Halloween costume. You want to stand out and get noticed, but at the same time you don’t want to wear what everyone else is wearing.

Or maybe you do, which is fine. The sexy nurse, or sexy witch or buff superhero costume always works and usually gets you noticed. But it’s not like the old standbys are going to win a Halloween costume contest on originality are they?

But wait. Costume contest, you ask? Would that be Halloween costume contests at Borgata Nightlife?

Why yes. This year Borgata Nightlife is holding … wait for it … six different Halloween contests at our nightlife venues and giving away cash prizes and overnight stays at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

It starts out at mur.mur Mondays October 27 for a kind of pre-Halloween costume extravaganza. First prize is $1,000 with a second prize of free bottle service and an overnight stay.

On Halloween night—which conveniently is a Friday night this year—Borgata Nightlife has three costume contests with one each at mur.mur, MIXX and Gypsy Bar. First place is $2,500 at MIXX and mur.mur with free bottle service and an overnight stay for second. At Gypsy Bar, first prize is $1,000 with a $250 bar tab and reserved table for second place.

Finally, on Saturday, November 1, MIXX and mur.mur both hold contests again with first place winning $2,500 and free bottle service and an overnight stay for second.

Check out Borgata Nightlife’s full Halloween schedule.

Jeff Ross at the Borgata Music Box Nov. 1

jeff-rossYou know comedian Jeff Ross—who is appearing November 1 at the Borgata Music Box—from his many stints on Comedy Central’s celebrity roasts.

Ross has been one of the main comics to breathe some life back into the roast format—where some poor celeb is berated with a mixture of insult jokes with really insulting jokes.

Ross is so much a part of the format, he bills himself the Roastmaster General.

So that’s where you know him from, which is all well and good. It’s much, much worse, however, when he knows you, as celebs from Pamela Anderson to Krusty the Clown (on a recent episode of “The Simpsons”) have found out.

As Ross puts it, “Diss is my Life.”

“I never planned on making fun of people for a living,” says Ross at his roastmaster general website. “It happened by accident. In fact, my whole life has been a series of happy and not-so-happy accidents that have transformed me into the black belt in busting balls that I am today. I like being known as the meanest man in comedy, but I must admit that it’s a blessing and a curse. It’s not a bad way to make a living, but every now and then somebody wants to kill me.”

Two New Slots Make Borgata Debut: Willy Wonka Pure Imagination & Diamond Hunt

willy-wonka-screenshotWhen it comes to Willy Wonka movies, the world is basically split into two camps—those who love the 1971 film “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” with Willy played by Gene Wilder, and those who love the 2005 film “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” with Johnny Depp in the Willy Wonka role.

The 2005 film has the original title of the Roald Dahl 1964 children’s book, but the 1971 film figured out that Willy—especially when played by Wilder—was the true star of the story (with all apologies to Charlie). Well, he and the Oompa Loompas.

So the question is, when you sit down to play Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s new Willy Wonka slots, which Willy do you want smiling down on you as you hit the big jackpot?

Yeah, yeah Depp is all dreamy looking and specializes in quirky roles like Willy, but Borgata is going old school on this one. We’re in the Gene Wilder camp.

The Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Pure Imagination Slots is the latest WMS Gamefield xD™ cabinet slot themed after a song title in the 1971 film. Everything from the goose that laid the golden eggs to Veruca Salt’s tantrums are covered in this bonus-heavy game.

This new theme takes the mechanics that players love from previous Willy Wonka-themed WMS games, adds a unique twist, and then displays them on the seamless screens of the Gamefield xD cabinet for a scrumdidilyumptious gaming experience.

Collect three or more eggs in order to trigger the Egg Bonus, where each egg collected drops into one of three buckets: The Fizzy Lifting Drink Bonus, The Veruca Tantrum Bonus, or The Pure Imagination Free Spins. The bonus with the most eggs then pays out.

#NowThatsAWin Photo Contest

nowthatsawin-300x250One of the greatest innovations of this high-tech age we live in has to be when cell phones started to have cameras.

Think about it. To take a picture, you used to have to actually have a camera—which was bought as a camera and nothing else and could not play Candy Crush—load it with film—which was like a whole separate thing from the camera—take your shot, go get the film developed—they had whole businesses housed in little sheds in parking lots devoted to this. Really, little sheds—and then finally you got to see that all your pictures were ruined because there was this lens cap thing you were supposed to remove before you started.

I know. It was positively prehistoric. Like from the 1990s.

Now of course we take pictures of everything with such ease that we take actually pictures of everything.

We take pictures of what we get served at restaurants, our friends, our friends doing funny things (sort-of), our pets, our pets doing funny things, our cars, our pets in our cars doing funny things and so on and so on. Then, of course, there’s the selfie, which are pictures of ourselves. Sometimes, we spice it up and take them with friends, strangers or our pets … especially if they are doing funny things.

And recently we’ve discovered we can do the whole thing all over again on our phone’s video camera. (We’re not going to even get into the old video tape tangles).

Is this a wonderful time to be alive or what?

So, in the interest of keeping this photo/video craze going, Borgata Online has introduced its #NowThatsAWin sweepstakes in which you can take a shot—or video—of you doing one of the most fun things in the world—winning money at Borgata Casino or Borgata Poker online.

Moody Blues’ Justin Hayward Goes Acoustic at the Borgata Music Box October 31

justin-hayward-blogThe story of singer/songwriter Justin Hayward, who appears October 31st at the Borgata Music Box, is a strange tale of a musician taken over and heavily influenced by a diabolical device known as the Mellotron.

This spooky machine led to one of the most influential symphonic rock bands of all time making late laments and giving their sound over to an electro-mechanical, polyphonic tape replay keyboard.

And that’s just scary … or maybe just a little moody. And blue?

Ok, it’s not scary at all. We’re stretching.

The truth is that Hayward, longtime lead singer of The Moody Blues and writer of such hits as “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “Question” is playing the Music Box on Halloween because, well it’s a Friday and a big party—Halloween is always a party at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—and that’s always a good time to bring in one of the legendary stars of classic rock.

And Hayward certainly qualifies as the frontman for the band’s glory days starting in 1966 and penning most of The Moody Blue’s biggest hits.
