Resorts Atlantic City gets into the calendar business when it debuts its Boogie Nights 2010 Calendar based on the popular '70s and '80s retro-themed dance club.

"We hope that when people get our calendar, every month brings a smile to their face and brings back memories," says Senior Vice President of Marketing Kathleen McSweeney.

Each month of the Boogie Nights calendar features characters and staff members from Boogie Nights, mostly in humorous poses.

The cover features Roller Girl holding a boombox on a giant disco ball. In honor of Valentine's Day, February features DJ Gabor dressed like Cupid in a diaper shooting an arrow into Lady D'Hiney. August and March feature tributes to Michael Jackson and Madonna.

"It's a nice mix of iconic '70s and '80s characters," says Director of Advertising and Media Relations Brian Cahill. "There's a little sex and a little fun … just like Boogie Nights itself. But I think one thing that's cool is that unlike many calendars that are a little too risqu�, the Boogie Nights calendar would be acceptable to hang in your home or office."

The dates of the calendar feature memorable moments from 1970 and '80s, including Reggie Jackson hitting three home run in the World Series for the Yankees, when the Apple computer was invented, when the Double Stuff Oreo debuted, plus normal holidays.

"What we wanted to accomplish is to show the Boogie Nights brand, but also show the personality of the club because that's what separates us from the other clubs," says club creator Dave Pena. It's not just the '70 and '80s theme and the sound and light show, but it's the personalities that make Boogie Nights unique. It's very vibrant and over the top. It is the most unique calendar in 2010."

The calendar is priced at $19.79, but inside, buyers will find six passes for Friday nights valued at $60.

"There is some value there," Cahill says. "The cover is $10 on Friday nights, and you can use those passes throughout the year whenever you please."

The Boogie Nights 2010 Calendar will be available for purchase this weekend at the club. Beginning next weekend, the calendar can be purchased at Fro Me a Party on Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township. Beginning Nov. 5, the calendar will be available when Resorts opens its new holiday shop.

On Nov. 7, a signing party will be held in Boogie Nights, and all of the characters and calendar models will roam around the club signing the calendars.

Baseball talk

at Borgata

New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies fans will be dually represented on Friday, Oct. 30, as the two biggest sports radio stations in New York and Philadelphia will broadcast from separate locations at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

As usual, WIP 610-AM, Philadelphia's No. 1 sports talk radio station, will broadcast "The Morning Show" with Angelo Cataldi from 6 to 10 a.m. in front of Gypsy Bar.

Down the hall at B Bar, Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton will host their own morning drive show broadcast on WFAN 660-AM, New York's No. 1 sports station.

Both shows will obviously feast on the Philadelphia-New York rivalry the day before the World Series shifts to Philadelphia for Game 3.

Celebrity sightings

Speaking of the Phillies, ace starter Cliff Lee and right fielder Jayson Werth were spotted last Saturday night having dinner at Wolfgang Puck's American Grille at Borgata.

Pop star Keri Hilson performed her hits "Turnin' Me On" and "Knock You Down" at a packed mur.mur nightclub last Friday at Borgata. Hilson opened for Jay-Z in Philadelphia earlier that night. On her way out of the club, she hit on a slot machine. She posted a picture of the slot machine on twitter with the message: "How else was I gonna turn $5 into $122.50?? Thanks Borgata Casino -- never woulda happened in Vegas :)"

Ron White, who performed last weekend at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, dropped in to catch The Angels in Ego Bar & Lounge after his show.

Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and Jill Zarin and LuAnn de Lesseps of "The Real Housewives of New York" hosted a VIP meet and greet event at Caesars Atlantic City. The stars of the Bravo network series took pictures and signed autographs with high-rollers.
