Food and beverage personality Sissy Biggers hosted Street Eats as foodies perused around the stations tasting delectable dishes. Attendees had their choice of craft beers by the Victory Brewing Company and fine wines hand-selected by Borgata’s award-winning wine director, Anjoleena Griffin-Holst. Guests also watched festival entertainers perform, had the opportunity to play games and listen to music by The Rockets.

Borgata’s culinary partners also took part in several intimate events with fans throughout the weekend. Savor Borgata Weekend kicked-off with “A Taste of 5 Culinary Masters” a four-course dinner and cocktail party with Iron Chefs Flay and Symon collaborating with chefs Kalt, Schulson, and DuBois. The chef all-stars offered guests courses prepared by each chef—an event sure to excite any palette.

During a live culinary demonstration, Food Network fans got to pick up some pointers from Flay when he shared celebrated recipes at Borgata’s Music Box theatre. Special guest Symon signed copies of his new cookbook, “5 In 5: Fresh Ingredients + 5 Minutes = 120 Fantastic Dinners” inside 28 West.

With a fun yet relaxed atmosphere, guests could indulge in a plethora of delicious dishes throughout the weekend and especially during the evening at Savor Borgata—including goodie bags of popcorn, cotton candy and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!
