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.

Back to School Party September 20 at MIXX and mur.mur

back-to-school-partyIt’s September, and across the country colleges are back up and running for a new semester. That’s classes, exams, dissertations and long discussions on the existential nature of mankind.

Of course, there’s also a lot of friends, parties and general fun having, which, who knows?, may very well be the existential nature of mankind in the first place. You know, life’s a party.

We at Borgata Nightlife can’t tell you if all of life’s a party, but it certainly helps spruce up the last summer weekend of the season. So, this Saturday, September 20, we’re having a Back to School Party at our nightclubs MIXX and mur.mur.

That includes a $1,000 giveaway—$500 each at each club—to, you know help with books and other college essentials. (You must have a My Borgata Card to enter.  See a nightlife representative at the club to apply.)

Music will be presented by Jesse Marco at mur.mur and Anthony Pisano at MIXX.

DJ M.O.S. and DJ Kiss at mur.mur August 22

DJ MOS and KissBorgata Nightlife is pretty proud of offering the best line-up of resident DJ’s at our Borgata clubs MIXX and mur.mur that you’ll find, well, pretty much anywhere in the country.

And that’s why we’ve been introducing you to them on this blog with our trademark set of “introduce you to our DJs” set of questions.

Well, today, we have something special. We’re going to introduce you to two—count’em two—of our resident DJs.

Yes, yes, it’s pretty exciting, but there’s a reason for our madness. On Friday, August 22, at mur.mur, DJ M.O.S. and DJ Kiss perform together (with DJ Renzo) starting at 10 pm.

Really, the two just decided they wanted to work together. They’re both resident DJs here at mur.mur and they just said “Hey, let’s jam together.” No other reason.

Well, except that they are married. So maybe that too.

Still, for Borgata Nightlife lovers it’s a chance to check out two of our finest DJs in one spectacular night.

The Borgata Nightlife Interview: DJ Ruckus

DJ RuckusMost of Borgata Nightlife’s resident DJ’s are in demand, but how many can claim to be the most sought after DJ in the world?

One—DJ Ruckus.

Well, at least according to GQ, which dubbed him “the most sought after DJ in the world” and it’s pretty easy to see why. DJ Ruckus plays more than 180 shows a year, is a resident DJ in nightclubs around the country including exclusive destinations in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Atlantic City (at MIXX at Borgata) and Atlanta and has played private shows for celebrities including Adrian Brody, Christina Aguilera, Diddy, Magic Johnson and Steven Tyler.

He also provides the music at exclusive parties for corporate clients including Calvin Klein, PlayStation, Prada and Virgin and fashion shows and film premiers around the world.

It all started when he received some turntables for his 14th birthday. In just a couple of years he was headlining at some of the biggest clubs in his native Miami and playing private parties for Diddy in Morocco.

Meet Borgata DJ Paul Castro

Paul CastroThe secret to the success of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s nightlife venues isn’t much of a secret—we have the best DJs in the business. Not just Atlantic City mind you, but anywhere.

Sunday’s resident MIXX DJ Paul Castro just makes that point even clearer. And he may be the ultimate A.C. DJ having moved here as a teen after growing up in Colombia. Castro, who goes with his own name rather than adopting a DJ moniker, has been spinning in southern New Jersey since the late 90s.

Castro—who also appears at Izakaya Mondays—revels in an old-school style designed to get the club to explode. In part of our series of Borgata in-house DJ interviews, we asked Paul some questions about his career, his influences and what you can expect when he takes over the nightlife sounds at Borgata.
