If there’s one thing that you learned about Sebastian Maniscalco during his hour-long “Why Would You Do That?” show at Borgata’s Event Center, it’s this: don’t approach him at a gas station after midnight.
And forget about catching him inside a mini-mart after dark. He’s petrified!
Those are some of the many idiosyncrasies that the wildly popular comedian explored during his six sold-out performances at the resort during the weekend of January 13 through the 15. Best known for his Showtime and Comedy Central specials and his appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and Conan, Maniscalco held back no punches, including at himself.

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…
No doubt that if you’ve been to Borgata, you’ve noted the extravagant glass sculptures that seem to drip effortlessly from the ceiling and rise majestically from the resort’s floor. Those colorful works of art are none other than world-famous Chihuly glass, created by master craftsman Dale Chihuly, and some of our guests come to our resort just to take in the signature pieces by the American artist.
Is there anything better than a dip in a pool with a little refreshing cocktail is waiting for you by a lounge chair?
