There’s something cool about the fact that this year Father’s Day and the first day of summer—aka the summer solstice—fall on the same day this year.
After all, it’s appropriate to take the longest day of the year to really honor Dad, who is always there for us with his gentle wisdom, his infinite patience and his never-ending support.
And for those of you who don’t live in a 1950s family sitcom, he’s the one yelling at you to stop texting all the time and keeps filling up the DVR with John Wayne movies.
Yes, you got to love Dad. It takes a long day to really honor dad.
Of course we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are going a step further and taking the whole weekend from June 19-21 to honor dad with a line-up of promotions and events that will just make your father sit up and take notice and possibly, finally come out of the bathroom.
But since it’s also the start of another summer season in Atlantic City—and you know how we love summer here at Borgata— the weekend is just doubly blessed. Not only can Dad try out his latest socks and sandals combos, he can also check out Borgata’s new outdoor venue at Festival Park, featuring The Killers, or see Huey Lewis and The News in the Borgata Event Center.
Atlantic City regulars have made Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa the number 1 casino hotel destination in the area since 2003. And it’s easy to figure out why. With Borgata’s headliner shows, great nightlife, first class dining, casino and poker room, how could anyone doubt it would become the leader in Atlantic City?
But Atlantic City insiders also know that it was in 2007 when Borgata truly became a complete destination with the opening of The Water Club Hotel.
Just check out the amenities at The Water Club, which completed the $600 million master plan for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
The 43-story, $400 million hotel features 800 guestrooms and suites; Immersion, a two-story spa on the 32nd floor, 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space; three Residences modeled after chic, urban lofts; five heated pools – indoor and outdoor, each offering a distinct experience; and boutique retail shops including Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli and Fixation, while offering direct access to and from Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.
That’s straight out of the brochure, but anyone who regularly stays at The Water Club will tell you there’s so much more to the experience than a simple list can convey. In a word, it’s elegance.
The Water Club offers two room styles—the Vista Room and the Club Room.
Check out this resume for a Vista room:
Holiday shopping can be a hectic thing, what with the traffic, the crowds, trying to find a parking spot in the same area code as the store you wanted to visit and so on. And who doesn’t love 78 consecutive hours of canned mall Christmas music? (2,700 versions of “Jingle Bells” and counting.)
At this point, you’re probably thinking that we at the Borgata Blog are about to plug a nice little getaway to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for a relaxing, stress-free, pre-holiday break. Which is great—especially if you take advantage of our monthly spa specials.
But there’s an even easier way to allow Borgata to take some of the crazy out of holiday shopping. And that’s to Shop Borgata from home at our online store. And from now to December 28, ShopBorgata.com is offering a holiday sale or 25 percent off on all items.
That includes all of ShopBorgata.com’s category’s from the Gifts of Comfort (bedding, blankets, sheets), to items for the Spa Connoisseur (robes, aromatherapy) to gifts for the Foodie (cookbooks, margarita glasses, aprons).
It’s an impressive list of online items at great prices that you can check out here.
