It’s a sure bet that Mazzoni Center‘s annual fundraising gala, Elixir, will be a winning event this year. The festive celebration that raises funds for Philly’s one-stop LGBT healthcare and wellness shop has teamed up with Borgata to provide an evening of partying for a purpose.
Borgata has joined as a sponsor for the event, which is being held on Friday, May 20th at Thomas Jefferson University’s Lubert Plaza. Of course, in traditional Borgata style, the resort will be ushering in a night full of fun as they’ll set up a charitable casino lounge, filled with plenty of card games for the chance to win real Borgata prizes like hotel packages, show tickets, dinners, spa treatments, and more. Borgata’s participation is all for a good cause: Proceeds will support Mazzoni Center’s ongoing mission “to provide quality comprehensive health and wellness services in an LGBT-focused environment, while preserving the dignity and improving the quality of life of the individuals [they] serve.”

If there’s one thing Americans like to win, it’s a new car. It’s something that “The Price is Right” has known for all 287 years it’s been on television, as well as every other game show from “Family Feud” to “Let’s Make a Deal.”
And we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa know even better than most the joy of announcing a prize with the line “It’s a new car!”
On Saturday, April 30 we’ll be saying it five times as Borgata holds its BMW 528i Sweepstakes.
That’s five prizes of the BMW 5 series sedan that’s a testament to BMW’s mastery of style, performance, and innovation. With everything in perfect balance, it offers the best of every world.
Yeah, that’s car talk from BMW, but as car talk goes, it’s pretty good stuff.
Consider this about the BMW 528i:
BMW’s superb craftsmanship comes to life in the sophisticated interior. Optional 20-way multi-contour seats ensure outstanding comfort, while other premium selections like lush Nappa Leather upholstery and contrast stitching bring a refined style to the elegant cabin.
With the preview weekend behind us and one full week under our belt, we are very excited for what’s to come. We would like to thank everyone that came out the past two weeks and making Premier’s opening a huge success. But it’s not over; we have much more to come! We continue this week with our star-studded lineup with Steve Aoki!

The World Series of Poker recently announced that many bracelet events this summer in Las Vegas will start at 11am rather than the usual noon start time. I expected to hear complaints from poker players, pros especially, when this change was announced but I couldn’t have predicted just how much backlash there would be from the poker community.
I personally would prefer to keep the noon start times, but as with any change that impacts many people it’s important to look at the overall effect(s) of the change rather than one’s personal preference. I believe it’s a bit short-sighted to complain about the change in start times in much the same way that it’s short-sighted to complain about the slower pace of play, bright lights, showing your cards to the camera/RFID reader, and other annoyances associated with being on a streamed or televised table. When you look at the big picture, tournament poker has flourished in the past 13 years mainly due to televised poker bringing in masses of people who watched poker on TV, especially the WSOP and WPT.
When it comes to the 11am start times, I think it’s important to consider which demographics are more likely to prefer which start time. I can tell you from many years of experience playing Borgata tournaments, which typically start at 11am, that recreational players tend to be on time much more frequently than pros and they don’t seem to mind the earlier start time. The earlier start time at WSOP is accompanied by an earlier bagging time, which is a big consideration for recreational players who aren’t used to being up until 2am, much less playing high stakes tournaments at that hour. I think Borgata has been getting this right all along and I’m glad the WSOP has caught up from a “good of the game” perspective.
