But one of the great things about Thanksgiving dinner is that many of the basic dishes at the traditional feast are on the list – most notably cranberries (as in sauce) and pumpkin (as in pie).
Cranberries are filled with disease fighting antioxidants and Vitamin C. They’re actually considered one of the healthiest fruits you can eat. Pumpkins are also filled with anti-oxidants and Vitamin C, but also are a good source of Vitamin A and E.
OK, so at this point, you may be asking what does this have to do with the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s special spa treatments for November? Cranberries and pumpkins?
It doesn’t matter if you’re a good witch or a bad one: the East Coast’s premiere LGBT resort destination has plenty of tricks and treats for your Halloween celebration. Whether it’s cheering on your favorite drag superstars to dancing the night away in our new state-of-the-art nightclub, OUT at Borgata has a way to make your favorite fall holiday a memorable one.
Not in food, mind you, but in our October line-up of spa specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Once again our spa experts have put together a group of special treatments utilizing natural ingredients, vitamins, organic botanicals and minerals.
And while outside fall is a season of endings, at Borgata’s spas it’s a season of both rejuvenation and relaxation.
And while you’re here, you might want to check out Borgata’s great dining options. Our Borgata chefs are pretty good at fall flavors as well.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s spa specials for October:
Here’s a fun fact. Every time you spend a relaxing hour or two at Borgata’s spa’s getting one of our signature massages, you’re engaging in something that people have been doing for more than 4,300 years.
Really, the first indication of massages was found in the Tomb of Akmanthor (also known as “The Tomb of the Physician”) in Saqqara, Egypt which has a depiction of two men getting foot massages. The tomb dates to 2,330 BC.
By 700 BC massage was a pretty standard practice in Asian medicine, so the point is it’s been around a long time. Couple that with the ancient Greeks love of baths, and you get the history of spas…
We love spring for so many things. The return of the warm sun, the green leaves, the soft breeze, the very fragrance of the season.
Fragrance? Now that’s something the award-winning Spas at Borgata know about. Along with the very best in massages, relaxation and rejuvenation, our spa treatments tap into the very fragrances that infuse your body with the essence of the eternal spring – strong, reborn and vital.
Pretty artsy stuff huh?
This is the time of year when we start thinking about summer. It may be some weeks away, but we still have summer on the mind as we plan trips, beach days, outdoor activities and just all around fun in the sun.
You know – summer stuff.
Here in Atlantic City, summer is the season to relax and party. There’s no better place to start than Borgata’s Spas.

More importantly, spring arrives and the world re-blooms with life, energy and vitality.
Sounds like a spa pitch doesn’t it? You have to admit there’s no better season for a spa visit than spring and to welcome spring, there’s no better time to go to Borgata Spas than March.
We’ve got a host of spa specials to exfoliate, massage, hydrate, infuse and generally rejuvenate you after a long winter.
Because in March a promise is kept. No matter how long the winter, spring always follows.

Ok, you guessed it, we we’re just funning about the whole high intensity thing (thought you were on Borgata’s Nightlife blog huh?).
As we like to say when February rolls around, sweets for the sweet. And that’s the theme surrounding Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s February spa specials, as we present a host of relaxation treatments that employ chocolate, strawberries and brown sugar, among other sweets.
Now at this point, any Shakespearian scholars reading this are probably annoyed that we’re misquoting “sweets to the sweet” from Hamlet.
So yes, the line is from Hamlet and has nothing to do with candy and is in fact, used in a kind of depressing way within the play. (You can look it up if you must know.)
But we’re not about that here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and our spa treatments are designed to relax, re-invigorate and generally recharge you in the bleakness of winter. And, of course, with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we’ve tailored February’s specials to couples and romance.
We’ve also put a heavy emphasis on chocolate this month, which even Shakespeare couldn’t make depressing. That’s probably why there are no famous Shakespearian quotes about chocolate. (Well, that and the fact that chocolate as we know it hadn’t really taken hold in Europe during his life.)
So we’ll turn to a great 20th Century writer—Charles M. Schultz, the creator of Charlie Brown—for a quote that sums up our February specials:
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
