MakJ at mur.mur Mondays November 10

MAKJBorgata Nightlife’s mur.mur Mondays prove that the party never has to stop even if the weekend does.

Meanwhile DJ MakJ (aka. Mackenzie Johnson) has taken his art of partying around the world. His creativity and diversity have gained him the praise of an army of performers for his originals, edits, bootlegs and remixes.

So imagine when the two ever come together. You know, DJ MakJ playing at mur.mur Mondays.

It’s happening November 10.

All of Borgata’s DJs know how to keep a party going, but there’s no question that MakJ brings a fascinating background with him. At 15 he was a race car driver in China. At 17, he was in the U.S. spinning.

Now he’s a successful producer and radio host. And per his website, 2014 Has already seen MAKJ release “Let’s Get F*cked Up,” a huge collab on Ultra with megastar MC Lil Jon, as well as “DERP,” a collaboration with his good friends Bassjackers.

Wanda Sykes November 7 & 8 at the Borgata Music Box

Wanda SykesWanda Sykes plays Borgata’s Music Box November 7 & 8. So here’s a quick Wanda Sykes quiz.

Which of these three quotes come from Sykes?

“I can hear my mother now: ‘What? Oh, you gonna get a divorce? It’s just that easy, huh? Things get hard, things get rough – you just want to throw in the towel, just like that. Let me tell you something, that’s a bunch of bull. Let me tell you something – your father and I had a shootout, OK? He took one in the arm – Harry, show her where I shot you – now, see that’s love right there. You gotta learn how to work these things out. He was wrong, I shot him – you move on.”

“I don’t understand this whole Elvis thing. There are dead people in my family that we miss and love dearly, but shoot, we don’t dress up like them and do impressions. I’ll show up at the family reunion in a dirty t-shirt and a bald cap – ‘Look, everybody, I’m Uncle Earl.’”

“I love doing stand-up, because it gives me the freedom to say what I really want to say. I think that’s why it’s my favorite thing to do.”

The answer? All three.

Wanda Sykes has carved out an impressive TV career with stints on “The Chris Rock Show,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “Curb your Enthusiasm,” her own late night talk show and a bunch of HBO comedy specials. And that’s not even mentioning films like “Bruce Almighty” and “Monster in Law.” She’s a writer, actor and producer.

Go Exotic at Extreme Eats November 7 at The Water Club

extreme-eatsLet’s say, for argument’s sake, you were really hungry and feeling really adventurous at the same time.

You want something different—not your 1 millionth pizza or cheeseburger, not your 500,000 meal of pot roast and mashed potatoes. And you’re also a little sick and tired of what passes for standard restaurant fare out there with the endless salad bowls and unlimited cheesy bread sticks.

No, you want adventure, excitement, a new taste sensation. Like you were on a gastronomic safari.

Well, would you eat alligator?

How about rattlesnake? Snails? Duck tongue? Wild boar?

Avacado and mint ice cream?

Ha, you say. Not in a pig’s ear. Really, how about if the pig’s ear came Vietnamese style in a summer roll with a roasted cashew sauce?

Let’s face it, you know you would.  That’s just the kind of dining adventurer you are and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has the perfect dining adventure for you

Welcome to Extreme Eats, a special dining event at Aqua at The Water Club Hotel that’s part of Savor Borgata’s Weekend of Savoring and helps cap off Borgata Restaurant Week. The event starts at 7:30pm at Aqua on Friday, November 7.

Borgata Restaurant Week November 2-7

restaurant-weekWhen Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa was looking to highlight the amazing dining and restaurant options we offer here in Atlantic City—not to mention our incredible line-up of chefs—we decided to offer a series of events, demonstrations, and special deals at our dining venues.

Thus was born the Savor Borgata Series. Of course, first we had to come up with a name for the series.

After rejecting the “Them’s good eats at Borgata” series and the “Chow down until you bust at Borgata” series options, we decided to go with the more refined, Savor Borgata Series title (which we were absolutely thrilled someone thought of).

It was the perfect name for the series of occasional wine tastings, chef demonstrations, cook-book signings or special restaurant deals.

Except, as time went on, it became clear that you, the savorers (the ones who savor?), wanted a lot more than an occasional event. No, once you start savoring, you never want to stop.

Well, we heard you.

The annual Savor Borgata Restaurant Week at Borgata is November 2 to November 7.

Halloween Costume Contests at Borgata Nightlife Start Oct. 27

halloween-costume-contestsThere’s a definite art to the perfect Halloween costume. You want to stand out and get noticed, but at the same time you don’t want to wear what everyone else is wearing.

Or maybe you do, which is fine. The sexy nurse, or sexy witch or buff superhero costume always works and usually gets you noticed. But it’s not like the old standbys are going to win a Halloween costume contest on originality are they?

But wait. Costume contest, you ask? Would that be Halloween costume contests at Borgata Nightlife?

Why yes. This year Borgata Nightlife is holding … wait for it … six different Halloween contests at our nightlife venues and giving away cash prizes and overnight stays at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

It starts out at mur.mur Mondays October 27 for a kind of pre-Halloween costume extravaganza. First prize is $1,000 with a second prize of free bottle service and an overnight stay.

On Halloween night—which conveniently is a Friday night this year—Borgata Nightlife has three costume contests with one each at mur.mur, MIXX and Gypsy Bar. First place is $2,500 at MIXX and mur.mur with free bottle service and an overnight stay for second. At Gypsy Bar, first prize is $1,000 with a $250 bar tab and reserved table for second place.

Finally, on Saturday, November 1, MIXX and mur.mur both hold contests again with first place winning $2,500 and free bottle service and an overnight stay for second.

Check out Borgata Nightlife’s full Halloween schedule.
