Spring is finally upon us here in Atlantic City and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and it couldn’t have arrived a moment too soon.
It’s been a long hard winter and now it’s time to celebrate. And not just the season, but all that spring stands for—rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Call it the five R’s.
Because nothing says spring like great casino action, fine dining and good stand-up comedy.
Don’t believe us? Then just take a look at Borgata’s special Spring Escape Package running from now until June 25.
Overnight stay in a Classic Room at Borgata.
$100 Dining Credit valid at Borgata’s dining outlets.
All for $199 a night, available Sunday – Thursday. Call (609) 317-1000 to book your package.
There’s a reason we call this the Spring Escape Package. Nothing beats getting away from your cold, day-to-day routine, and having a few laughs—and thrills—with that special someone.
That’s what we call rejuvenation. It’s also spring at Borgata.
If there’s one thing we know, it’s sweets… mouth-watering, crave-worthy, taste-in-your-dreams sweets. Here are our picks for the 10 best treats across Borgata. Enjoy!
Borgata Baking Company: Sips with a Kick
Borgata Baking Company is now serving spiked gelato shakes! Try the “Drunken Monkey” (rum, bananas, honey, and vanilla gelato), “Frozen Cappuccino” (Irish Cream, Kahlua, and vanilla gelato), or the “The Ultimate ‘Root Beer” (Oatmeal Stout, Irish whiskey, and vanilla gelato).
Everything you need to plan a gorgeous Mother’s Day celebration… including decoration and gift ideas, as well as recipes by one of Borgata’s most celebrated chefs, Bobby Flay.
- Mother’s Day Décor…
- Create a variety of flower arrangements using flowers from your garden or fresh flowers from your local market. Keep tissue paper and twine nearby so you can remove from vases after brunch and gift each mother in attendance.
- Frame several photographs of the mothers in your family, including pictures throughout time – ie, your grandmother as a child with her mother, your mother with your children, and everything in between. Editors Tip: If framing isn’t an option, hang twine throughout your entertaining space and clip photos to string with clothespins.
- Cut pieces of pastel construction paper into the shape of tulips or sunflowers. Write each guest’s name or initials on respective pieces for table place cards.
And so, the Washingtons and Lincolns partied down in February. George and Martha would give each other colonial-era-appropriate gifts like molasses candies (in heart-shape boxes) and some nice wood varnish for George’s oral hygiene (you know, wooden teeth.) Then they’d have cherry pie.
Abe would give Mary agita and she famously gave him little wood log pieces he could make toy log cabins out of, hence the birth of Lincoln logs. Then they’d pitch pennies, which was like throwing little Lincoln commemorative medallions around.
Now, of course, it’s entirely possible that none of this really happened—because we totally just made it up—but the point is when February lines-up Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day together on the calendar, it’s time to party.
And nobody does holiday weekend parties like Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, where this year we get to combine both our romantic Valentine’s offerings with the star-packed entertainment and promotions of another Presidents’ Day Weekend in Atlantic City.
From Friday, February 13 to Monday, February 16, Borgata has something for everyone.
OK, for many of the boyfriends and husbands, this will happen on February 13, or maybe even Valentine’s Day morning. For others—capable of planning ahead—busy schedules could throw up a roadblock.
Either way, a lot of Valentine’s dates are going to end up being a dinner at a chain restaurant with a seven-hour wait—or maybe just a bucket of chicken (Do they make heart-shaped chicken nuggets?)—followed by watching Love Actually (or some equally appropriate rom-com) on DVD.
And how about if you’re single? Another Valentine’s Day with Ben & Jerry may be on the horizon.
It doesn’t have to be this way, not with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa around. We’re announcing our February Hotel Packages and, as you’ll see, they are designed for romance and partying (Valentine’s day is on a Saturday this year, after all). So let us do the planning for you.
For Valentine’s Day, we’re offering a special package we’ve dubbed Single & Fabulous, designed for those who see Valentine ’s Day as a good excuse to get the crew together and go clubbing (as if there’s a bad excuse). It’s always better to face the day with friends, especially at Borgata Nightlife’s happening clubs.
Borgata Nightlife is famous for its ability to turn any weekend into a three-day weekend. So when you actually have a three-day holiday weekend—as we do with Martin Luther King Day on January 19, this Monday—you can expect even more.
Check this out.

There was a lot of shoveling, salting and sliding on the roads going on, not to mention more than a few fender benders. There was also a lot of bundling up, but still freezing anyway.
People are sneezing, sniffling and coughing and we’ve all been reminded of that horrible seasonal visitor called the wind chill factor. That’s when a slight breeze makes it feel like you’re standing on the North Pole.
There’s ice on the windows, the sidewalks and sometimes it feels like its in your very soul.
And the worst part? Only two and a half more months to go.
Let’s face it, at some point we all need to escape winter’s grip, even if for just one night. And there’s no better place to spend that night than Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Borgata offers up a special winter escape package Sundays through Thursdays designed to beat back the winter blahs.
Now for those people out there who are good at planning—you know the kind of people who made reservations for a Time’s Square hotel six years ago—that’s no big deal.
But for everybody else, it’s time to panic. Where do we go? Where’s the best party?
One answer—Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Even the plan aheaders (those who plan ahead?) know that. Just check out this New Year’s lineup at Borgata.
Events for New Year’s Eve include:
One winner every 14 minutes

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.
Wrong. The whole concept of the wish has dominated literature, fairy tales and folklore since the first caveman wished for a sharper rock to cut his mammoth steak.
We make wishes by throwing coins into wells and fountains or by blowing out birthday candles. We make a wish when we see a shooting star, or just the first star of the night. In fiction we’ve dreamed up genies to give out three wishes or a host of magical items to wish upon.
And some of us just out muscled some poor family member to snap the big end of the Thanksgiving turkey’s wishbone.
Each week we’ll give you, our Facebook friends, the chance to choose between three different prizes in the Wish List Sweepstakes. It’s sort of a twist on the three wishes as voter’s choose from three prizes on the wish list.
