28 West Piano Bar at Borgata Has You Feeling Alright

28westBorgata Nightlife offers up a lot of different experiences at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, from the electric atmosphere of our new Premier Nightclub to specialties like the Wine Bar at Old Homestead or the Izakaya Sake Bar.

One of the most traditional, yet innovative experiences comes at 28 West, our European-influenced piano bar open Friday and Saturdays. Featuring specialty cocktails and craft beers by the pint and half pint, when you spend some time at 28 West you can enjoy live music while sampling its tapas style bar menu.

But the main thing about any piano bar, of course, is the piano player. To paraphrase Billy Joel, when you’re in the mood for a melody, he has you feeling alright. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa looks for the best keyboardists in the region to provide all you expect from a piano bar – from background cocktail music to full on singalong shows.

Check out 28 West’s lineup for the month of June:

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.

Online Gaming Winners for May 16 to May 22

Montezuma slotMost of us like round numbers. You know, like $5,000 and $10,000. Especially when it comes to big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.

Lucky for all of us, that’s just how things worked out for our big BorgataCasino.com winner – who took home a $5,000 jackpot – and our big poker winner for the week of May 16, who won $10,000.

Now there’s nothing wrong with winning $3,992 at Borgata Casino.com and $5,550 (hey that’s round too) at BorgataPoker.com, as our second place winners for the week did respectively. Nothing at all.

It’s just always nice to see all those zeroes line-up – especially on your wins.

How many zeroes can you line up?

An Evening With Al Pacino June 4 at Borgata Event Center

al-pacinoThey say imitation is the purest form of flattery, and if that’s true, then movie legend Al Pacino may be the most flattered guy in history.

Everybody has a favorite Al Pacino movie quote and most of us are ready to break into a Pacino imitation at the drop of the hat – or at least when the quote fits.

Consider these classic lines:

“Just when I thought that I was out, they pull me back in.”

The Godfather, Part III

“Say hello to my little friend.”

Scarface

“You’re outta order. You’re outta order. This whole trial is outta order.”

And Justice for All

“Attica! Attica!”

Dog Day Afternoon

“On any given Sunday you’re gonna win or you’re gonna lose. The point is – can you win or lose like a man?”

Any Given Sunday

Vanity. My Favorite Sin.

The Devil’s Advocate

Wanna Be a Baller, Shot (Clock) Caller

Matt StoutRecently the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL hosted the World Poker Tour’s “Tournament of Champions” which was a $15k buy-in event exclusively for players who’ve won WPT main events. While the shot clock has been tried before in the occasional preliminary tournament and super high roller event, this marked the first time it has been used such a prestigious tournament and has led to a lot of discussion about the idea and implementation in poker circles.

Each dealer was given a tablet with a timer and players were given 30 seconds to act on their hand regardless of what street the decision was being made on. In addition to these 30 seconds to act, each player received 5 “time chips” which could be used to extend the amount of time they were given to act for tough decisions.  Players who made the televised final table were reset to a total of 4 time chips whether they’d used their previous 5 or not.  If you weren’t facing a bet and time ran out, your hand was automatically checked. If you were facing a bet and ran out of time, your hand was declared dead.

Online Gaming Winners for May 9 to May 15

Zeus III Game LogoWe like to give acknowledgement to our big online winners each week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, because, well, who doesn’t like a big jackpot?

But there’s something to be said for the steadier wins that happen every day at our online sites as well. Take the Daily $10K Guaranteed tournament at BorgataPoker.com (and our partners at PartyPoker). That’s a daily tournament that paid six Borgata online winners almost $3,000 in jackpot winnings for May 9 through May 15.

That’s better than $18,000 in daily tournament wins for just one of our daily tournaments.
