Got this email about the Borgata going smoke free. Very awesome of them. They might already be the most popular casino down there, but they’ll be doing even better. The other casinos should quickly follow suit.

Borgata to be first Atlantic City casino to go 100% smoke-free

In an effort to best accommodate our customers — smokers and
non-smokers alike — Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has submitted plans to the
NJ Department of Community Affairs (DCA) that will make the resort
the first 100% smoke-free casino in Atlantic City. To accommodate smoking guests, Borgata will offer several outdoor lounges that will be designated smoking areas. These outdoor spaces will offer guests a comfortable, climate-controlled environment reminiscent of Borgata.

We feel this decision will best maintain the fresh, upscale atmosphere
associated with Borgata, while accommodating both
smokers and non-smokers alike.

Subject to NJ DCA approval, the plans will take effect in compliance
with the Atlantic City smoke free ordinance.

Just this morning, I booked a room for Kim and I for our anniversary. (I proposed to her at a suite at the Borgata.) Not sure if it will be smoke free by then, but we can hope.

What’s on your mind Bo? Or all that smoke clogging it up?

FWIW, the Borgata was “mostly” smoke free. They are going fully (minus the designated, semi-outdoors smoking areas) in November. From a “making your clothes smell like shit” perspective, it was much better than previous visits to the casino.
