You may have heard that Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is now fully part of MGM Resorts International and part of one of the world’s leading global hospitality companies, operating a portfolio of destination resort brands including Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage.
The company is in the process of developing MGM National Harbor in Maryland and MGM Springfield in Massachusetts.
So here in Atlantic City, we’ve scheduled MGM National Harbor Career Fair for Wednesday August 10 and Thursday August 11 at the Borgata Event Center.
Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer season and that’s something we take very seriously here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Not that we don’t enjoy spring, or fall for that matter, but when summer rolls around we tend to take our partying to the next level.
The Water Club Hotel at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has always been a unique feature of our resort, offering up a singularly different type of Atlantic City experience just steps away from the casino, nightlife and dining at Borgata.
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 individuality; and boutique retail shops including Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli and Fixation.
At The Water Club, the emphasis is on relaxation and getting away from it all. So in a very non-stressful way, Borgata is offering another of our new hotel package deals that takes in all that The Water Club has to offer.

So let us introduce a great new package designed for comedy lovers we’re calling the Bor-HaHa Hotel Package.
Get it. Borgata … Bor-HaHa.
Ok, maybe we’re using the description “great” pun a little loosely, but it doesn’t change the fact that our new Bor-HaHa Hotel Package is a great deal for fans of stand-up comedy and the Borgata Comedy Club.

Sure, the spring weather is upon us, but the damage from the cold, dry winter still has a major impact on skin, especially during these transitional months. However, there are some easy practices and simple tips that you can easily implement into your daily routine to help heal and prevent dryness, aging, and damage.

Our friends at Atlantic City Weekly name their list of The Top 40 Under 40 each year — a tribute to young executives and community leaders throughout the Atlantic City area.
Atlantic City Weekly joined forces with the Greater Atlantic City Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) in 2005 to establish the Top 40 Under 40 — a campaign designed to recognize outstanding volunteerism, community service, cultural enhancement and exceptional work ethics in sectors of society such as business, government, education, healthcare, hospitality and others.
We think Simon embodies those ideals perfectly and are delighted to see him recognized by the community. We had a Q & A with Simon to discuss his being named to the 2016 Top 40 Under 40 List.
Tell us about your background. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m originally from a rural part of Pennsylvania, located about 45 minutes East of Pittsburgh. My college degree, a B.S. in Communications Media, was completed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in December 2002. Both sides of my family, going back several generations, have traditionally vacationed at the Jersey Shore. During one of those visits, I noticed a billboard for Borgata, advertising employment opportunities to ‘Work Someplace Different.’ I applied, and that is pretty much how my career in gaming began. My initial position was at the My Borgata Center, followed by a subsequent move to marketing. In 2013 I took a marketing position with Isle of Capri Casinos, where I was part of the opening team of Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Within that same year, an opportunity presented itself here at Borgata, and so I made my way back to Atlantic City.
What’s your favorite memory in your professional career at Borgata?
There are so many great memories, it’s hard to name a single favorite! The best memories I have are from those events in which the entire team here at Borgata delivers on a truly special, one of a kind experience for our customers. If I had to name one, Borgata’s Free Throw Basketball tournament held on March 21, 2015 was an event I will never forget. It was the kind of day that makes working at Borgata such a unique and rewarding experience.
Leap Day only comes around every four years, and we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa think everyone should take advantage of Monday, February 29.
After all, it’s a whole extra day—part of a 366-day year. Ok, it’s an extra Monday, but don’t let that get you down. There’s only 52 Mondays in 2016, just like most years.
But there’s only one February 29, and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa wants to help you make the most of it with these 29 ideas to make Leap Day special. At Borgata, we try to make every day special, but hey, Leap Day has inspired us.
Here’s our suggestions and Happy Leap Day!
