Borgata proved why New York City is often called the city that never sleeps. To celebrate the conclusion of their action-packed two day Savor Borgata Weekend, the resort turned their Event Center into a bustling Manhattan street festival, complete with a dancing Statue of Liberty and a replica of the Empire State Building made out of chocolate.
Since first bursting onto the punk scene in the 1970’s, Elvis Costello has been making music for nearly 50 years. That may seem like simple fact, but it took on a special relevance for the large crowd that saw Costello play Saturday at the Borgata Event Center.
Recently, Costello, now 62, has been drawing on a song catalog that has gained him distinction as one of the best songwriters of the last 50 years for a series of solo dates he dubbed a “Detour.” In that vein, Costello used his Borgata Event Center appearance to launch a two-week set of dates with his band the Imposters dubbed “The Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers Tour,” highlighting his 1982 album Imperial Bedroom.
For an enthusiastic Borgata crowd, it was chance to see Costello’s emotional and deepest songwriting at his best, interspersed with just enough go-to hits to keep the crowd singing along.
Well, we can’t quite promise you that, but we can guarantee that you’ll have a load of foodie fun (and learn a few things along the way that you can apply to your own cooking) at Borgata’s annual Savor Borgata event. The week-long festival that celebrates everything culinary returns to the resort from Sunday, October 30th through Saturday, November 5th.
There was definitely a sense that it wasn’t your typical Saturday night at Borgata on September 24. At the top of The Event Center escalators was a man, wearing a feather boa, waving two giant light-up rainbow scepters, greeting guests as they arrived for the 2016 Miss’d America Pageant.
The annual event, which has honored all things gay at the South Jersey shore since 1991, has raised over $300,000 for LGBT charities in the Greater Atlantic City region, and you can easily see why: the night brought out hundreds of loyal audience members of all ages, sexes, orientations, and races. It was something people looked forward to all year long. As I entered The Event Center, a group of older women were in line ahead of me. One of them turned around and said, “This is better than seeing male strippers. I have more fun doing this!”

Miss’d America has come a long way from it’s humble beginnings where the winner would literally get a Burger King crown and a dozen of dead roses wrapped in yesterday’s Press. The highly-anticipated drag show extravaganza returns to Borgata on September 24, 2016, and there’s more glitz and glam than you can shake a sequined gown at…plus you can win a free stay at The Water Club and tickets to the show!
Comedian Jim Gaffigan may seem like he’s everywhere these days. He stars in a series of pretty funny commercials for Chrysler, was one of the revolving Colonel Sanders in KFC’s ongoing ad campaign and just completed a run of the second season of “The Jim Gaffigan Show” on TV Land.
But despite all this TV, when Gaffigan rolled his Fully Dressed Tour into the Borgata Event Center Saturday for two shows, it was pretty evident what got Gaffigan to where he is – namely killer stand-up. Playing before two packed houses, Gaffigan unleashed a solid hour of wide ranging stand-up which covered everything from the changing seasons, the differences between ordering steak and fish (guess which one Gaffigan prefers) to travelling with his kids…
At Borgata, we work hard to bring the best shows, concerts and live entertainment to Atlantic City and to you. And we think we do a pretty good job as our packed line-up of shows and nightlife options always show and our proud of being the leader in Atlantic City entertainment.
But when it comes to comedy, few stretches on our schedule can compare to the three weeks between August 12 and September 3. It’s enough to make us toot our own horn a little, so to speak.
Four of the biggest names in comedy will perform at the Borgata Event Center, starting with perhaps the most famous stand-up in the country, Jerry Seinfeld for shows on August 12 and August 13 respectively.
