Greetings, and welcome to CasiNOTES, the Daily News' newest blog, and the first to cover the wild, wacky and wonderful world of casinos.

We hope to make this your "one-stop shopping" destination for everything about what's going on in casinos in Atlantic City, Pennsylvania and elsewhere. While Friday's "At the Casinos" column (in the DN's Big Fat Friday section) will focus on entertainment, dining and gambling, CasiNOTES will be the place to catch up on gaming industry news and gossip, the latest on Atlantic City's ever-expanding dining scene and reviews of events not covered in the weekly print column.

Like any blog, this one won't be a success unless you get involved. If you have any tips (for instance, what's your favorite poker room, buffet or hotel?), or have a question pertaining to the casino-going experience, don't hesitate to ask. If I can't provide an answer, I will find someone who can.

About this blog
Philly native Chuck Darrow has literally covered Atlantic City’s casino scene since Day One: He was there on assignment the night in November 1976 when voters approved legalized casinos.

Since then, Chuck has covered the town and its gaming industry for several area newspapers -- which is why, in some circles, he’s known as “Boardwalk Charlie.”
