The Washington Post reports:

D.C. officials said they are planning to set up 20 to 30 online gambling “hot spots” in hotels, bars, clubs and other venues across the city by around Sept. 1, marking a major step in a bid to turn the nation’s capital into a haven for Texas hold ’em and other potentially lucrative Internet-based games.

We talked about online gambling in general back in Dec. ’10 but this sounds like a pretty different beast to me (even it is only an interim step). So the Friday Question of the Day is another simple one – do you think setting up these “hot spots” in hotels, bars and other spots around town is a good idea?

Should DC just host straight up casinos (if Congress would let us)?
