Long Bar is the perfect venue at Borgata to start your night…or end it! Not only is Long Bar a great place to catch the game or enjoy drinks, but it has an amazing upscale bar food menu, including some of Atlantic City’s most delicious snacks that will surely be a crowd pleaser, even for the pickiest of diners. What are some of our favorite items on the menu? It’s hard to choose, but we picked four bar bites that we think will make it on your list of “must eats” when visiting Borgata.

Tiffany Haddish did not come to play. The actress and comedienne, who has become a household name over the last year, took to Borgata’s Music Box theater for two sold-out shows on March 9. Tickets to Haddish’s sets quickly became one of the hottest finds in Atlantic City, and for good reason. To use the title from her national tour, “she ready.”
Haddish, who was the first black female to ever host Saturday Night Live, has made the rounds over the last twelve months, from her two appearances on The Ellen Show (one where she was surprised by Oprah) to being a celebrity presenter at this year’s Academy Awards. However, she hasn’t forgotten her humble beginnings. In fact, before her performances at Borgata, Haddish took part in a VIP meet-and-greet fundraiser to benefit CASA of Atlantic and Cape May Counties, where she raised $5,000 to purchase luggage for foster youth. When she was just nine years old, Haddish’s mother suffered brain damage due to a catastrophic car accident. Several years later, Haddish and her siblings were split up and sent to separate foster homes. She vividly remembers having to carry her belongings in trash bags from home to home, and never wants another foster child to suffer that kind of indignity.
Even when Haddish took to the stage, she made it clear that she was grateful for the sold-out audiences who supported her at Borgata. No topic was off-limits, including some juicy gossip about Monique, meeting Meryl Streep and Warren Beatty at the Oscars, and partying all night with Beyoncé. She also showed she was not one to cross as her imagination runs wild about ways to get revenge on others. For instance, she’s often dreamed of stuffing an ex’s bed with centipedes wearing little high heels after he cheated on Haddish with a woman with long legs.
At the end of her act, Haddish appeared visibly teary-eyed as she thanked the bountiful audience. Her parting gift? A spoken word piece, wishing the “curse of happiness” on the entire audience. If the standing ovation was any indicator, the crowd didn’t have to look to far to find a reason to be happy.
It’s that time of the year where Spring Break madness is hitting Atlantic City. Since making the trip to Vegas can be a commitment for all those college seniors still figuring out their futures, Atlantic City can be your ultimate Spring Break destination on the east coast!

OUT at Borgata is super excited to welcome the one and only Britney Spears to The Event Center this July for three sold-out shows of her Piece of Me tour. However, as if we didn’t have enough reason to love the pop princess already, GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, has named Britney their 2018 Vanguard Award recipient for LGBTQ support and allyship.
“An irrefutable icon, Britney Spears has entertained the world while also embodying the spirit of GLAAD’s Vanguard Award by speaking out on significant issues that face her fans – from the Dream Act to anti-transgender bills in Texas,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD, in a press release. “She is a force in the music world who has used her global platform to share messages of love and acceptance, something that the world needs today more than ever.”
Britney has consistently stood up for LGBTQ youth on GLAAD’s Spirit Day by going purple on social media to speak out against bullying. In 2015, she released a Spirit Day video and promoted participation in the anti-bullying campaign by organizing a meet-and-greet for LGBTQ fans. In 2016, she was among over 20 artists to appear on GLAAD’s song “Hands,” in honor of the victims of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting. In 2017, Spears was among 140 entertainers to speak out in an open letter against anti-LGBTQ bills which targeted transgender youth in Texas and were later defeated.
With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, we thought it’s the perfect time to bring you a little extra Irish luck in the form of a brand new BorgataCasino.com game.
