“How many of you have never been to a drag show?”

A shocking number of the audience members at Borgata’s Music Box raised their hands after one of the evening’s queens asked this question at Saturday’s America’s Drag Stars performance.

Free the Freezeout!

Matt StoutIn recent years there has been a huge shift in the format of tournament poker.  In the beginning tournament poker was always played with a freezeout format, meaning that once you were eliminated you could not get back into the tournament. You were required to lumber away from the table, defeated, and find something else to do with the remainder of your day.

Then, several years ago, casinos and online poker sites began offering players the opportunity to buy back into the tournament if they were eliminated early enough in the event. This enabled operators to boast gigantic payouts for a small buy-in. When you can offer a person the opportunity to win a life-changing sum of money for a relatively small buy-in it’s obviously a huge selling point.  That’s one reason why you see Borgata packed to the brim with poker players every time they host the $560 buy-in opening event.

REVIEW: Boy George, Rosie O’Donnell, and Cyndi Lauper Show Their “True Colors” at Borgata

BGCLWho would have imagined Boy George and Cyndi Lauper singing a ten-minute duet of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” while Rosie O’Donnell played the drums?

There was that, plus plenty of other unexpected surprises, this past Sunday evening at Borgata’s Event Center where the trifecta of performers played a rare Memorial Day concert, only one of seven stops on their tour of the East Coast. In some ways, the night was pretty much two full concerts in one and lasted nearly two and a half hours. Both Boy George and Cyndi Lauper played full sets, while Rosie O’Donnell served as intermission entertainment.
