The Got Dumped Cure

Everyone has their way of getting over a break up. As I found out this weekend, I head straight for gourmet mac & cheese and Law & Order reruns (no more references to 'the boyfriend' -- sorry, folks). Then I get my hair cut and/or indulge in some sort of spa service.

The folks in Atlantic City seem to know just what a gal needs to wash that man right out of her hair. Here's what they have in store:

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Sweet Revenge package
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa helps you leave the “dead weight” behind with:
-a Soothing Surrender body treatment that incorporates a float in the soft pack flotation system
-a Borgata Jade Stone facial to turn him green with envy
-skilled stylists at the Salon who will perfect your locks with a Deluxe Kerastase hair treatment and blow dry
-a Euphoric Hand Ritual manicure to help you spiff up your hands so you can retire that ring (the Spa will even offer up pawn shop locations)
-Euphoric Foot Ritual pedicure (those feet were made for walking….as far from him as possible)
-a personalized make up lesson and application from Spa Toccare
-a visit to Carina in Borgata’s retail area so you can be a styled single with hot new wardrobe suggestions
-two complimentary cocktails to show off all that effort at Gypsy Bar.
Times and prices may vary. Contact Spa Toccare for availability at 609-317-7555, or visit for details.
