This August, Borgata is turning to the Great White Way to heat up their entertainment options. Some of Broadway’s biggest performers from Hamilton, Wicked, and The Phantom of the Opera area headed to the Atlantic City resort for multiple memorable summer nights full of show tunes we all know and love.

Fourth of July Weekend is one of the biggest weekends of the year in Atlantic City and at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and that means we do it up right. We’ve put together an amazing line-up of events, concerts, shows and excitement fit for a shore blow out in honor of our nation’s birthday.
And, of course, that means fireworks as Atlantic City is putting on two fireworks programs for the weekend this year, First up is a beach and boardwalk show July 3, then on July 4th, the fireworks spectacle will be held in Atlantic City’s Marina District, which makes Borgata the best place to view the show in the resort.
Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer season and that’s something we take very seriously here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Not that we don’t enjoy spring, or fall for that matter, but when summer rolls around we tend to take our partying to the next level.
During the month of June, Borgata will roll out the rainbow carpet for the LGBT community, featuring a series of events to celebrate Pride Month – including mega entertainment, signature parties, and special hotel packages.
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.
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”
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.
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.
Ms. Diana Ross needs no introduction: The legendary diva has belted iconic tunes for decades, and has starred in countless movies and television shows. She’s been honored numerous times, including a 2012 Lifetime Achievement Grammy as well as a 2007 Kennedy Center Honors. Now an intimate crowd of a few thousand guests have the lucky chance to see Ms. Ross live and in person at Borgata’s Event Center during a one night only, SOLD OUT show on Friday, April 1. To prepare for all of her musical glory, we rounded up five of our all-time favorite Diana Ross videos for your viewing pleasure.
Yeah sure they don’t run around killing gazelles like lions or soar above us like eagles. They just sort of sit there, in the bay, until somebody goes and digs them up.
But they’re still fascinating, living their little bivalve lives out in the water. Some of them are makers of pearls, providing us all with a safe gift choice for anniversaries. Some of them—called window pane oysters—have translucent shells that make nice, and much cheaper jewelry gifts all by themselves.
And of course, they’re mostly good eats.
Make that great eats. Wonderful eats
Hey, whatever they do out in the bay, it sure makes them tasty.
On April 23, we’re going to bump it up a notch by presenting The World is Your Oyster at 2pm, as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series. For this event, The Metropolitan will team oysters with another miracle of the modern world, namely beer (some wheat, some hops, some yeast and voila – beer).
If you’re sick and tired of the cold and are looking to thaw from the winter blues, this Friday, March 11, Borgata is offering an opportunity to heat up the start of your weekend with a living legend. Hollywood icon Sophia Loren will be coming to The Event Center, where she will share juicy inside stories about her decades’ long movie making career.
