The casino is being called The Temporary -- what up with that?

A pit boss told your LakeCountyEye: "We tried to call it The Permanent -- but people started asking for an appointment with a hairdresser. Then our application for a Illinois cosmetology license was denied. They said giving haircuts in a casino is way too obvious."

And speaking of temporary casinos, the Trump Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy in 2014. Donald Trump's hairpiece was unavailable for comment.
