There was a time when tequila was thought of as a drink to enjoy as a quick shot—paired with lemon and salt—or in a Margarita, and that was pretty much it. Tequila wasn’t a drink you had at meals, or when enjoying hors d’oeuvres. The culinary world hadn’t yet embraced the nectar of the agave plant.
But that kind of thinking is long gone, and pairing food with fine tequila has become an art all its own.
At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Gypsy Bar—our renowned Tequila bar—it’s also an art that Borgata has mastered, along with the equally important skill of creating Tapas.
Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine that have become so popular, they are often combined and mixed and matched to make a full meal.
You’ve probably figured out where we’re going with this.
The Savor Borgata Culinary Series presents Tapas and Tequila at Borgata’s Gypsy Bar at 4pm Saturday, September 19. Enjoy Tapas paired with Tequila featuring Borgata Special Diamond Tequila.
We hate to say it, but sometimes the names of our online slots games don’t always live up to their promise at BorgataCasino.com.
Hear us out.
Michale form Newark was playing Double Diamond slots when he made a $10 bet. So he was probably hoping he’d double his money, ala the name Double Diamonds.
Nope. He multiplied his money 1,000 times and hit a $10,000 jackpot. Kevin from Colonia edged him out by winning $10,006 on Super Luck Spin mobile slots, which did live up to its name.
Sorry Michale, you’ll just have to live with your $10K.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s big online winners for August 31 – September 6:

There was a time, back in the early ’80s, when Australian singer and actor Rick Springfield seemed to rule the world. Not only was he the singer behind the mega-hit “Jessie’s Girl,” he also played Dr. Noah Drake on the soap “General Hospital,” which back in the ‘80s had a following with young women—not to mention older women—that, looking back, is a little hard to explain. But trust us, it was big. Very big.
So you would think that when Rick Springfield takes the stage at Borgata’s Festival Park September 12—with guests Loverboy and The Romantics—that it would be a night of nostalgia for the 66-year-old Springfield.
Not exactly. This is the Rick Springfield currently starring in the film “Ricki and the Flash” with Meryl Steep and coming off a notable spin as Dr. Irving Pitlor on “True Detective.” And it’s the same Rick Springfield with an upcoming new album “Rocket Science.” He’s also the author of the novel “Magnificent Vibration” and his 2010 memoir ”Late, Late at Night” is considered one of the best rock memoirs of all time (though we don’t expect any dramatic readings at Festival Park, just music.)
Could it be that Rick Springfield is trying to put the classic “Jessie’s Girl” and Noah Drake behind and rule the world again?
“Hopefully, some of the new work I’m involved in is changing that perception,” Springfield recently told the Miami Herald. “If not, I’m good with the “Jessie’s Girl”/Noah Drake thing.”
When Springfield takes the stage at Festival Park, it will be a mixture of new and old.
The Atlantic City Seafood Festival is back this weekend at Atlantic City’s Bader Field and as always, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is participating and backing this great resort tradition.
The two-day festival, September 12 & 13 is an extravaganza of food and entertainment that celebrates the treasures of the Atlantic Ocean, while highlighting the East Coast’s favorite sea side city. More than 50 restaurants and culinary personalities are participating.
That includes Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Executive Chef Thomas Biglan who appears at the Seafood festival Saturday, September 12 at 4pm for an interactive cooking demonstration.
The stated goal of the festival producers is to give event attendees a reason to spend the day in Atlantic City. Whether it’s trying local restaurants, sipping Jersey beers, paddle boarding, cooking with local chefs, playing in the sand or getting a proper wine education, you’ll find yourself lost in the Atlantic City Seafood Festival and all that it offers.
The festival also includes a Chowder Cook off to benefit the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. After an in-house contest at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Borgata Buffet Chef Angel Torres will be representing Borgata in the cook off.
Looking over the top online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, we came close to hitting a headline writer’s dream.
We all know how creative online poker players at BorgataPoker.com are in choosing their screen names. So when we saw that Turkeyleg was the winner of $10,000 in the Sunday $50K tournament, we started thinking of the possibilities.
Turkeyleg outruns the field at BorgataPoker.com’s $50K.
Turkeyleg kicks it for a $10K win.
Turkeyleg walks away with the top prize.
But alas, the big jackpot of the week went to Patrick of Plainsboro who turned a $3 bet on the Candy Store slots at BorgataCasino.com into $25,768.50.
So we’ll have to go with Patrick is like a kid in the candy store—a kid with $25K.
It’s just not the same. But hey, congrats all around. What headlines will they make this week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com?
Congratulations to our 36 winners from the BorgataPoker.com Quarterly Freeroll Invitational Tournament on Sunday, September 6, 2015

There was a time when Labor Day Weekend was kind of a bittersweet holiday here in Atlantic City. Sure, as a beach resort we partied hard at the unofficial end of the summer, but it was also the end of the season and things we’re about to quiet down until spring.
Well, that quieting down part is long gone and we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa go full blast 24/7, 365 days a year. But we still love to party on Labor Day Weekend.
So that’s just sweet, no bitter.
To celebrate the end of summer, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has put together a line-up like no other on the Jersey Shore for this Labor Day Weekend. From casino promotions to concerts and shows to the best nightclub action anywhere, we’ve got the perfect holiday celebration to see out a long summer season.
