Everyone knows that gambling has a dark side but Chanize's recent experience at The Borgata took it to an entirely different level with her being accused of something completely outrageous while at the blackjack table. Here's her story in her own words. Our mother really was right--nothing good happens after midnight...or 3am.
I don’t know whether to feel sorry for the powers-that-be at Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel or furious with them, so I'm going for a happy medium. On the eve of their 10-year anniversary, the casino suffered a trauma, and in their flustered state ended up accusing me of, how to say it gently—soliciting services.
Now I’ve been called many a thing in my time, but hooker is a first. Until now.
But let’s back this thang up and tell you how the hoopla went down.
Apparently while many guests (including myself) were at The Borgata’s Event Center watching The Roots tear up the stage with Slash and Jill Scott, a robbery took place. According to this article , at 8:45pm a group of men came in and boosted $500,000 worth of jewelry from a Borgata store. Of course, we were none the wiser, enjoying the concert and all.
Read on for the rest of Chanize's cautionary tale.

Now, it's The Borgata's turn to crank up the volume, as the casino hotel's big 10th anniversary is fast approaching, and you can bet (heh) they're going out of their way to let you know about it.
We had the pleasure of being invited to the recent Savor Borgata Event in Atlantic City where chefs Bobby Flay, Wolfgang Puck, Michael Mina, Geoffrey Zakarian and others were there presenting food demos and a huge culinary showcase for a crowd we were delighted to see come out in droves to support the city just a week after Hurricane Sandy hit.
We were lucky enough to spend a few minutes interviewing some of the chefs. We talked about some of their holiday plans, and more importantly what’s on their hotel horizon.
We spoke with the personable Wolfgang Puck:

Though the Borgata and sister hotel The Water Club are not on the Boardwalk, they did feel some of the effects of Sandy, but, as they say, the show must go on—and that it did.
We were lucky enough to spend a few minutes to interview the chefs. We talked about some of their Thanksgiving Plans, and more importantly find out what’s on their hotel horizon.
We spoke with Bobby Flay, after his Thanksgiving-dinner demo where he showed his huge audience how to properly cook a turkey, prepare a spicy pumpkin soup (with chipotles, of course!), convinced naysayers to embrace Brussels sprouts, and bigged up Geoffrey Zakarian's Lamb's Club at The Chatwal as one of his favorite restaurants--despite Zakarian telling us Conde Naster's were getting too fat from his food!
