The Water Club
Maybe you love a good glass of red or white, but have no idea about how to talk about wine. Or, maybe you’re a wine-o and want to expand upon your knowledge of your favorite vintages. Vintage, a wine boutique located right in Borgata’s The Water Club, is offering a one-of-a-kind Wine Classroom on a weekly basis that will demystify wine in a friendly and non-intimidating environment.
Amateur yogis have no doubt have heard about balancing “chi,” but what exactly does that mean? In simple terms, “chi” translates to “that which gives life.” In other words, chi is the life force and the difference between a living, breathing human being and a corpse.
However, with all of the environmental and emotional stressors of the modern world, one’s chi can easily become misbalanced. That’s where massage, sound therapy, and energetic body work can truly make a difference in refreshing and aligning a person’s chi. Lucky enough for those who visit Borgata, Immersion Spa‘s brand new Signature Bali Chi Ritual can help balance, relax, and systematically assist in resetting the emotional and energetic body.
Let’s get this out of the way: Yes, Borgata’s fireworks were amazing and the great capstone to a super relaxing and epic July 4th holiday at the resort. However, there were plenty of other signature experiences that made celebrating the nation’s birthday a ton of fun. Want the play-by-play? Check out the hourly breakdown of all of the activities leading up to the huge fireworks spectacular.

There are few things in the American culinary palate as time honored and cherished as ground beef sandwiches served in endless varieties.
In other words, Americans really love hamburgers!
We make them in our kitchens and at cookouts and we go out to eat them or just grab a sack on the way home from work. And we eat hamburgers a lot. It’s estimated that the average American eats three hamburgers a week and as a country, we consume 50 billion hamburgers a year. That’s billion, with a “B.”
And yes, we do mean delicacies, such as sushi, sashimi and the many variations of steak tartare. The use of raw protein ensures a freshness and taste that can easily be lost on the grill.
The traditional steak tartare is a French specialty that was originally served with tartare sauce in the 19th century, but has undergone a lot of regional changes – mostly involving the use of herbs and spices. Sushi and sashimi are Japanese delicacies that feature raw fish that exploded on the American scene in the 1980’s.
Much like eating your first raw oyster, fans of tartare and sushi took a bit of a plunge their first time (though these preparations are perfectly safe), but found gastronomic delights that can make you regret every time you’ve ever ordered something well done…
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…
There are a lot of skills that go into bartending and creating the perfect cocktail. There’s mixing, stirring, squeezing (as in lemons etc.) shaking, blending and a host of other ways of bringing together all of the flavors in a cocktail.
It’s called the London Refresher, and it calls for muddling. That’s muddling, not muggling, which comes from that other English import Harry Potter.
No, muddling, to be precise, is to mix together, especially confusedly. In this recipe, you get to muddle away on key ingredients before adding the liquor – gin, of course, it is the London Refresher. In this case, you’ll need a muddling stick (really, it’s a bartender tool, much like a pestle). Then you just muddle up the ingredients and add the gin.
