Just in case you weren’t convinced that the cool weather is here to stay in the Northeast, here’s a big hint by way of Atlantic City: The Water Club at the Borgata is closing up shop on weeknights. And if you think you’ve heard this song before, you’re not going crazy: the Water Club also closed rooms midweek back in March, when business was slow, re-opening for the summer party season in May.

Guests wishing to stay at the property Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays can be accommodated at big brother, the Borgata, and it doesn’t look like all weekdays will be blackouts. When we checked out the online reservation system, we noticed that the week of November 15 is showing up as available, from $209 a night. Also, you can crash at the Water Club for just $159 a night tomorrow night.

Of course, the big question is: when will the Water Club re-open up for week-long service? A spokeswoman for the hotel wasn’t saying, but this report in the Press of Atlantic City contains an ominous sign:

A hotel reservations clerk said the property would remain closed midweek through the spring or summer, with occasional openings for busier holiday weeks.

Yikes. We know we shouldn’t totally freak out. We’re not usually jonesing for an AC fix mid-week anyways. But somehow this news makes us sad. Of course, we could always re-create the Water Club at home: their bedding, towels, and robes are all for sale at the Shop The Water Club Store. Just think of the perks: less chance of sleeping next door to a bunch of bachelorette-party chicks and no sharing the bus from Port Authority with a bunch of frat boys and degenerates.
