November is a month known for ushering the holiday season. That means sales, decorations and most of all, great fall flavors.
There’s ginger and spice, apple pie a la mode, and pumpkin, just to name a few autumnal faves. They’re so prevalent this time of year, they permeate the air and we feel them in our very skin.
So at this point, you may be wondering if you’re mistakenly reading Borgata’s dining blog.
Nope, this is Borgata’s Spa Blog because in November, fall spices take over even in our famed spa treatments and massages at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa. And there’s a reason that spices like ginger and pumpkin make us feel so revived at the holidays. Like many natural ingredients, each spice has its own health benefits.
Ginger, for example—long known as a treatment for nausea—also has a warming effect that stimulates circulation. Meanwhile, pumpkin helps neutralize free radicals and can help prevent wrinkling and vanilla bean is chock full of important minerals. Apples, of course, are about as healthy a fruit as you can find.
And you thought they just made great cookies and pies.
Back in the *old* days during the poker boom there was a silly debate that raged in poker circles and circled around one question: Who’s better at poker, the east coast or the west coast? (Apparently the South and Midwest were automatically disqualified from contention.)
Even though I bought a house in Las Vegas in 2010, I’ve always been repping the east coast in this argument. I grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey and had been into card and board games including poker and chess my entire life. When I was 19 I became deeply engrossed (read: addicted) to poker during the 2003-2004 poker boom especially since I had just given up playing college hockey at that point and was in dire need of a competitive outlet to replace it.
I spent two years — much of which should have been spent studying my majors of business and psychology at The College of New Jersey — cutting my teeth in every game I could find around campus, and when that wasn’t enough I turned to online poker. After dumping a lot of money on $5-10 tournaments and spending a semester eating Easy Mac and ramen noodles, I decided to dedicate myself to improving my game because I’m a fan of meat and other foods that weren’t cheap, and being a broke college student who was losing money at online poker was pretty far from sustainable as far as business models go.
Within three months of turning 21 and becoming a fixture in Atlantic City tournaments, I had managed to scrape together just enough a bankroll to play the WSOP Circuit when it came to town. I busted the first $340 event but then won a $75 sit-and-go into the 2nd event, a $560 NL. That tournament changed my life forever, because I ended up chopping at the final table with Matt Glantz for $34K. I went on to win two seats to the $10K main event later that week in the only two $200+rebuys I played, sold one seat to Nicky Frangos, and played my first $10K. That’s when I was able to quiet the 20% of my brain that kept telling me I was out of my mind for wanting to try to make a living playing poker and I knew that I was going to pursue this dream that I still haven’t woken up from after 9 years.
Looking through the upcoming concerts at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, you might think that an Evening with Alan Cumming on November 14, at Borgata’s Music Box might make for a peaceful, pleasant evening with the Broadway star.
Especially if we tell you that Cumming himself bills the evening as “Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.”
Doesn’t that sound like a peaceful event?
Only if you’re not familiar with Alan Cumming—at least on stage. Since he sprang on the scene playing the master of ceremonies in the 1998 Broadway re-adaption of “Cabaret,” Cumming has been one of the most energetic and unpredictable stage presences in American theater.
Sappy songs huh? Here’s a description of the show from the NY Times review.
“Nothing, however, prepared me for the emotional firestorm that Mr. Cumming detonated at Tuesday’s opening-night performance of his nightclub show ‘Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.’ ‘Have a hankie ready,’ he advised early in the evening while flashing a subversive Mephistophelean grin whose message read: You know and I know that underneath our decorum, we’re all ravenous sexual beasts and hooray for that!”
That’s Alan Cumming, one of the hardest actors/singers to pin down into a neat stereotypical role. The Scottish born performer has been seen on American film screens (starting in 1997 with “Romy and Michelle’s Wedding“) and TV screens in a host of roles from “Spy Kids” to his current role on “The Good Wife.”
