In a really, really, REALLY dumb move, Live! Hotel and Casino was granted Philadelphia's second casino license. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board made the announcement Tuesday to a packed house at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The badly-conceived 200,000 square-foot project includes "a spa and conference center" built in and around an existing Holiday Inn. Oh, wow - a real, live Holiday Inn!
For how this happened, see our post directly below.
There is enormous opposition to this project and we wish the opponents well. This is a VERY bad idea!
