There's gambling in Charm City!
Or at least there will be come Tuesday, Aug. 26 when Baltimore's long-awaited casino opens for business. Officials of Horseshoe Casino Baltimore trust that people from far and wide will flock to their South Baltimore location to wager, have a few drinks and luxuriate in all the high-gloss splendor Maryland's newest casino (and its second-largest, behind only Maryland Live at Arundel Mills) can pile on.
For those eager to experience casino life in Baltimore, here are eight suggestions on what to do once you're inside. Keep a few things in mind, however. You must be 21 years old to get through the front door; in poker, a full house beats a flush, unless it's a royal flush -- and if you get dealt one of those, bet it all; and if you lose all your money, regardless of how, no one's going to be interested in hearing your sob story.
