Casino-Free Philadelphia to Foxwoods: Hiya neighbor!

The anti-casino movement, like 'em or not, has always shown intself to be resourceful, witty, and sometimes very effective. Here's their latest tact -- Casino Free Philadelphia and the No Casinos in the Heart of Our City Coalition will open up an office at 718 Market Street -- within a block of Foxwoods' proposed site at the old Strawbridge & Clothier building in the 800 block of Market Street. The anticasino-istas will offer a "circus" as an opening celebration on June 25, complete with "The Incredible Two-Faced Mayor" and "City Council Contortions."

The office even has a name -- The No Slots Spot.
