Looks like Baltimore's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community could have a big, flashy, deep-pocketed new ally in town in Horseshoe Casino on Russell Street, which opened Tuesday. These days it's not uncommon for major corporations to tout their support for the LGBT community, but not all are as effusive in that support as Horseshoe's parent company, Caesars Entertainment. If you scroll to the bottom of the Horseshoe Casino Baltimore's website, there is a list of 13 links for business and corporate information about the casino's slots and table games, hotels and local "things to do," and investor relations.

Some restaurants are hard to figure out. They present themselves as one thing and turn out to be another, or else they're in a continuing state of figuring themselves out. The cool thing about Guy Fieri's Baltimore Kitchen + Bar is how plainly it wears its big beefy heart on its distressed-denim sleeve. You'd have to go out of your way to not know what you're getting into at Guy Fieri's, one of three restaurants at the new Horseshoe Casino Baltimore. And you'd have to have a heart made of stone not to respond, on some level, to its basic good cheer and basic American enthusiasm.

Nothing says "Surprise!" like an Australian rapper with three Top 10 songs currently on the Billboard Hot 100. Last night, Iggy Azalea - the 24-year-old pop-rap artist responsible for the inescapable hit "Fancy" - performed a surprise five-song set at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore's three-level bar, 14Forty, to celebrate the casino's opening.  She was not the only surprise. Gladys Knight took the stage for a 45-minute set as the doors opened at 9 p.m., and Pauly D, of "Jersey Shore" fame, DJ'd a 90-minute set as well.  Noah Hirsch, vice president of marketing for the Horseshoe, said it took a "good group of team members" to keep the surprises a secret.

You can thank Wolfgang Puck. The era of good casino dining is generally traced back to 1992, when the Los Angeles-based chef opened a version of his famed Hollywood restaurant, Spago, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. From then on, you didn't have to know a flush from a straight to have a good time in Sin City. Within a decade of Spago's opening, Vegas was a paradise for restaurant lovers. Michelin-star chefs like Thomas Keller and Joel Robuchon came to town. Nobu, Le Cirque and other famous New York restaurants opened on the strip.

Tonight, Baltimore becomes a casino town. With the opening of the $442 million Horseshoe Casino Baltimore on Russell Street, the city enters an era of legalized slots, table games and poker that seemed impossible just a dozen years ago. Back then, people were busy drawing lines - first no slots at racetracks; then maybe, but no table games; then state-regulated slots at five locations and then six, along with everything else. Voters got their say, both on the matter of expanded gambling and then the location of the state's largest casino, Maryland Live, at Arundel Mills.
