ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Atlantic City's casinos have tried many things to shake off a seven-year slump and turn around their sagging fortunes.
But what if the real problem was too much clothing?
Scores, the famous New York strip club, will open a satellite club inside the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort next month - the first strip club inside an Atlantic City casino in 35 years of legal gambling.
One casino, Revel, has offered the Royal Jelly burlesque show. And dancers in bras and panties are common on the gambling floor of many New Jersey casinos, including the Tropicana and the Showboat.
But strip clubs are a new frontier: Even Las Vegas casinos don't have them. Vegas does have topless revues, though topless pool parties were shut down a few years ago.
