My husband and I stayed at the Borgata for 4 nights for our anniversary. March 11-15th. As always the Borgata doesn't disappoint.
Sunday March 11- We arrived in Atlantic City at 11:15 in the AM. Had a 1130 reservation for the Caesars Brunch. It was well worth the 44.95 per person. They had a flutist, a violinist and a guitarist. I had my share of shrimp, crablegs, salmond, roasted turkey, prime rib and other selections as well as Mimosas and Bloody Marys. Checked into the Borgata at about 1pm. What long check in line but they moved pretty quickly. Missed the 2 million dollar winner. She won on the 5 cent progressive wheel of fortune the day before.
We got a regular room for 4 nights (1 comped). We were put on the 31st floor - room 3130 with a beautiful view of the casino skyline. Played a little and lost some money. We decided to go to the other side and took a jitney. Left the car parked. We went to the pier and looked at the new stores they added since we were there in August and its coming along. Had dinner at Rainforest Cafe and enjoyed the meal. Headed back to Borgata since we had tickets to the comedy show. I must say didn't know what to expect since I never heard of the comedians but it was very funny. After the show hit the slots a little and then headed to bed.
Monday, March 12- Anniversary- This is our 4th anniversary and we headed down to the buffet and as usual we couldn't complain. Borgata always had a great buffet. Afterwards we tried our hand at the 5cent wheel of fortune. Of course you had to wait because everyone wanted a chance since they had the big winner. No luck so we headed to the penny machines. I am not a high roller so was more than happy. Found a super jackpot party machine and put in our twenty dollars. We were on that machine for about 3 hours and we had a ball. I had to shue the hubby away a few times. Told him go find his own machine. We bickered a little and entertained those around us but we were just having so much fun. By time we finished it was time to go register for the bingo tournament. Now mind you this is my first time and when I tell you those folks don;t play, they come prepared. Played eight games and it was hilarious. Didn't win but the older folks were so entertaining. There was not a empty seat anywhere. Everytime someone yelled bingo, you should have heard all the moans. Didnt win.. did I say that already but we had fun. Now we decide to go to the room and freshen up. We decide to go to the Tropicana and we had dinner at Carmines. It was perfect for us. We ordered a Shrimp Parmagana with Spaghetti. They tell you ahead of time that the meals are made to be shared and belive me, one is all you need. After we stuffed ourselves, we did a little window shopping in the plaza at the Tropicana and decided to head back to the Borgata. Played some more slots...won about 110 dollars and then decided to go to bed.
Tuesday, March 13--Headed down to the buffet again and took our usual jitney to the other side. Went to Caesars and won about $50 and decided to head to brookstone to get our daily massages in their wonderful chairs. Can't beat free. After our massages we went to the walk and looked in the shops. Then we decided to walk futher down and went to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory- Bought a Strawberry
Cheesecake Candy Apple with Crushed Graham Crackers. OH MY GOD.. It was so good. Hubby bought a chocolate chip cookie. He was in heaven. It is near the converse factory outlet across from Ruby Tuesdays on Atlantic Avenue. Decided to walk back to Caesars and I said hey lets go to the Wild Wild West. Found a Bonus Frenzy penny machine and put about $10 in it. First spin hit for $5. Second spin about another $5.
Third spin hit $50 dollars asked hubby was he ready and he say no spin again and what do you know. I look and say oh I hit for $100 no it was over 100 thousand pennies. Man comes out of nowhere and says I was on that machine all morning. You didn't win $100 dollars that is $1000 dollars. Shut up... no its not and sure enough it was for $1012. We cashed out and was gone. Now we think we are high rollers we go to the 25 cent machines and I hit one for $50 and Hubby hits one for $90. We were happy so we first got our new bally cards and then we went to Ruby Tuesdays for dinner. Had a few drinks head back to Borgata to play some slots. Hit another $80 and decide to call it a night.
Wednesday. March 14- Buffet again and then go to the other side. Visit my Aunt who works at the courthouse. Stay for a little bit and then go to Taj Mahal. Hit again for $50 but this time put it back into the slots. No Worries. Walk to Caeasars and play a little. Hit for about $30. Leave and go get our daily massages at brookstone. Get hungry and go to Rainforest again and then head back to Borgata. Play a little slots. No luck. Turn in for the night. Thursday, March 15- Guess where...buffet again... see an old friend...have breakfast...play slots...out by 10:45 am and home in Harlem NY at 12:45. Smooth sailing on the Garden State and the Turnpike to the GWB.
Overall we had a wonderful time. We have a new system playing the slots.. we call it the stick and move. If we hit collect and go to another machine. Until our next visit.. Have a happy St Patricks Day.
