Charles Town Races changes name

By Washington Post editors

The owners of Charles Town Races and Slots hope to bring some of the glitter and glamour of Tinseltown to West Virginia with an expanded casino, a new name, and a fancy club and restaurant, the Frederick News-Post reports.

Owners Penn National Gaming will rename it Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races and stock it with refurbished with table games, movie screens and art deco stylings reminiscent of post-Depression America.

"The most important thing about the name change is what it portrays, and that's entertainment," General Manager Al Britton said.

Starting in July, the Hollywood Casino will feature nine table game areas, including a nonsmoking, high roller and party pit on the casino floor, Britton said.

My wife & I thoroughly enjoy their cheesy TV commercials; wonder what, if any, good a faux-class makeover will do for them.
