Miss’d America 2016 Re-Cap: An Atlantic City Tradition

rgk784There 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!”

american-flag-203x185Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer season and that’s something we take very seriously here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

For Memorial Day 2016, Borgata has lined up a great weekend of shows, nightlife, and casino promotions to usher in the season.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Borgata’s Gypsy Bar

Cinco De MayoOne of the great things about living in the U.S. is the influence so many different cultures have had on our culture.

Like say Mexico.

Our neighbors to the south have given us some great stuff, from tequila to Mexican cuisine to one of the great unofficial holidays on our calendar – namely Cinco de Mayo.

Years ago, the fifth of May was just basically the fifth day of May for most Americans. Now, it’s time for an all-out celebration. It’s a tradition we embrace fully at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, especially at Gypsy Bar, our signature tequila bar where we’ll be holding a special Cinco de Mayo celebration.

For those of you who like to understand why we party, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Contrary to popular belief, it is not Mexico’s Independence Day, which is celebrated in September.

Now we could go all geopolitical here, but suffice to say that in the 50s and 60s the day became popular as a celebration of Mexican culture in the U.S. that spread quickly through the country and became a tradition marked by parties, music and just an all-around good time.

And we totally support that.

Lunch and Learn with Wolfgang Puck American Grille Executive Chef Aram Mardigian May 28

Wolfgang Puck American Grille Execuitve Chef Aram MardigianThere are a lot of elements of Spring that people love to embrace. We clean our homes (OK, maybe people don’t love that part), break out the shorts and start spending a lot more time outside.

And one of the best aspects of spring can be seen at the dinner table. After a long season of eating produce shipped in from hundreds, if not thousands of miles away, we can now stock our tables with locally grown fresh Spring fruits, berries and vegetables.

For an Executive Chef like Aram Mardigian,  that also means breaking out the Spring recipes. Mardigian is a regular in our Savor Borgata Culinary Series “Lunch and Learn” presentations, so that means that you have the opportunity to break out his recipes as well this Spring.

Mardigian presents a special spring-themed Lunch and Learn event Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28 at Wolfgang Puck American Grille. He’ll be showing attendees how to prepare a three-course lunch with wine featuring several of his classic Spring dishes.

We’re calling it our “Spring into Summer Luncheon with Aram Mardigan

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Dinner at Old Homestead Steakhouse May 6

Woodford Reserve Kentucky DinnerThe Kentucky Derby is the Super Bowl of American horse racing and this year’s running marks the 142nd year of the Run for the Roses.

And while you can experience all the excitement and action of the “fastest two minutes in sports” at Borgata’s Racebook, keep one thing in mind.

The Kentucky Derby has endured because it is much more than a simple horse race.

The derby exemplifies a sense of style and southern charm that has been preserved down for decades. As much as it’s about 3-year-old thoroughbreds, it’s also about mint juleps and traditional Kentucky cuisine. When they play “My Old Kentucky Home” at Churchill Downs, there’s 142 years of tradition on display.

We know a little about tradition here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and we know a lot about fine dining – especially at Old Homestead Steakhouse.

And Friday, May 6 – which is also the day the Kentucky Oaks is run – Old Homestead will become my Old Kentucky Homestead by teaming up with Kentucky bourbon distillers Woodford Reserve to present the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Dinner as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series.
