There are times when you are watching television that it can feel like you’re being invaded by comedian and improv-master Wayne Brady.
There he is in his Emmy-winning stint as host of “Let’s Make a Deal” every day. There he is again on the syndicated improv show “Whose Line is it Anyway?” which seems to have been a staple on TV for about 50 years. Or maybe he’ll show up in his recurring role on “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” or any of the other about 1,000 TV shows he’s made a guest appearance on.
Why even the character of Clover on Disney’s “Sofia the First” sounds just like him.
Yes, sometimes, Wayne Brady seems to be everywhere.
One place you’ll be sure to find him is at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Music Box on May 22 at 9pm.
There, you can expect Brady to do what he does best—improvisation. In fact, Brady calls his show an “improv rock concert.”
“I take suggestions from the audience and nothing is off limits,” he tells the Providence Journal. “That said, there’s no accounting for taste sometimes,” he says laughing. “I like building themes, having conversations with the audience, getting more one-on-one contact with them. It’s the purest form of improv.”
For Brady, there is only one way to describe a pure improve approach to stand-up—be fearless.
“If I really let myself sit there and think about how I don’t know what’s going to happen during the show, I could really get sick to my stomach,” he says. “But I move beyond that. It’s not that I don’t care because I do. If you stop caring, the audience will know.
Every week we give you the list of our big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com because, well, we just love to celebrate our players’ big jackpots.
This week, however, is cause for a major celebration as four—count’em four—Borgata online players scored a better than $10K jackpot. Ok, two scored big payouts at BorgataPoker.com, so technically not jackpots, but you get the idea.
In all, our big winners collected better than $80,000 in jackpots and tournament winnings this week (including a $15,400 entry into the WPT World Championship at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa). And that’s not counting all the Borgata online winners that didn’t make the list.
80 grand. Hey, we’re here every week. You could be too.

When it comes to months of the year, there’s no month quite like May.
Unless you live in the southern hemisphere, where May is like November. But we don’t.
Nope, here in Atlantic City, May is the ultimate spring month marching itself towards Memorial Day and another glorious summer season at the Jersey Shore. Not that anyone is all that anxious to get through May, of course.
May is the month of May Day, the Kentucky Derby and the Indy 500. It’s also a month of flowers, warm breezes (with any luck) and rejuvenation.
Yes, there’s that word again—rejuvenation—which means May spa specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
This month our relaxation experts give you a May Day Get Away, European style facials and pedicures using apple blossoms and kumquats. Look, folks who can get kumquats into a pedicure are absolutely experts.
So in this very merry month, why not take a much-deserved break, brace yourself for the upcoming summer season and basically indulge yourself with a Borgata spa treatment?
I mean really, it’s not like it’s November.

There was a time when the only place to hear dance music was in a dance club. Sounds simple enough.
But then came groups like Swedish House Mafia, who took dance music the festival route and proved a dance music show could fill American arenas—make that big American arenas.
But for DJs like Steve Angello—the former Swedish House Mafia member who plays MIXX May 16 with Sebjak and opening and closing sets by Borgata DJ Carlos Melange—those old club days never left him.
And Borgata Nightlife is proud to be part of his current North American club tour.
Angello has always worked apart from Swedish House Mafia and produced a string of club hits that stretches back to 2004 when he released his remix of the classic Eurythmics’ tune “Sweet Dreams.”
He’s a Greek-born, Swedish raised DJ that also produces and owns his own record label. From there, it’s hard to keep track of absolutely everything he has produced—sometimes using different names—and put out.
It’s easier to keep track of Swedish House Mafia, which was composed of him, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell. Together they have produced hits such as “Save the World”, “Antidote”, “Greyhound”, “One”,”Miami 2 Ibiza” and “Don’t You Worry Child”.
Of course, the group has split, but Angello downplays any rumors of a rift between the mates.
This is a tale of two amazing things that when put together, result in a Savor Borgata event that’s going to blow your mind.
First up is the barrel. Yes, the simple barrel of the roll out the, over the, and barrel through variety.
Sure it may seem like some simple construction of wood slats and metal bands, but once constructed—and combined with liquor—it’s one of the most important flavoring agents in the distilling and brewing industry.
Think about it. They age whiskey, bourbon, scotch, rum, tequila, beer, wine and sherry in barrels to add to the spirit’s distinctive taste, color and body. Hey, they even age Tabasco sauce and vinegar in barrels (but that’s another story).
Next up is the simple bartender, the mixologist, the cocktail slinger. These humble purveyor of drinks are always looking to find that edge, that extra ingredient or element that puts their cocktails over the top into new territory.
So it’s not surprising that some of those wily bartenders—including ours here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—hit on the idea of finding some old whiskey and wine barrels and aging their own cocktails in them.
Thus another trend was born—the barrel-aged cocktail. And on May 16 in Long Bar, the Savor Borgata Series will present a Woodford Reserve Barrel-Aged Cocktails Lunch. Specially made cocktails featuring Woodford Reserve whiskeys will be aged in Woodford Reserve barrels and pared with a menu by Borgata’s Executive Chef Thomas Biglan.
The boxing world is all abuzz these days as we count down to the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao fight May 2 from Las Vegas.
And rightly so. A fight this big hasn’t come around in years.
Call it the “Fight of the Century” (Hey, we’re 15 years into the century now), as this welterweight championship fight between eight-division world champion Pacquiao and undefeated, five-division world champion Mayweather is a boxing fan’s dream—one that’s been stewing for more than five years as details of the fight were worked out.
And while the super fight may have been banished to the dusty confines of Nevada, Borgata and Atlantic City are right on top of the action. In fact, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers up the best viewing package you’ll see on the East Coast.
Tickets to our private big screen viewing at The Music Box on fight night went fast, but that hardly leaves fight fans out in the cold.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is transforming itself into Mayweather vs. Pacquiao land as the fight will be on our screens all over Borgata.
One of the great things about online slots these days are the cool themes the games employ. You get things like Kitty Glitter, Biker Pigs and Going Nuts (with an appropriate squirrel theme).
It’s all so much more creative than the old-school bells and cherries.
So you gotta love it when you hear that one of BorgataCasino.com’s newest games from Williams Interactive—Raging Rhino—scored one of our big online jackpots for the week of April 13-19.
Clearly, a relaxed rhino or a recalcitrant rhino wouldn’t have been the same.
It’s also the second time in two weeks that a WMS game has hit a big jackpot shortly going online. Just nine days after going live, the slot paid out close to $18K.
Now that’s a rewarding rhino.
Here’s the list of big online winners for April 13 – 19.
– On April 16, Scott from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, did a $6 spin playing the Monopoly Level Up Plus slots game and won $3,680.
When it comes to winning weekends, you can’t top this one at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com. With hundreds of thousands on the line in our $1 million NJCOP II poker series, free Bonus Dollars for our casino players, and chances to win a piece of $20,000 in cash and prizes for everyone, this Friday, Saturday and Sunday could be the most lucrative three days yet.
