You're a brand new hotel-casino at the Jersey Shore that's ready to make a huge splash. What do you need?

Thousands of employees? Got 'em.

A full line-up of world-class entertainment? Check.

A huge building that's had an iconic history in Atlantic City? Got it.

Restaurants, theaters, and shops of all shapes and sizes? Yep.

Casino license? Oh...

Well, no worries. The Washington Post reports the New Jersey Casino Control Commission granted a gaming license to Hard Rock on Wednesday. And, apparently, it was a smooth process (unlike trying to parallel park when you're trying to get your drivers license) -- The Post reported the Hard Rock had "an easy time" in front of the CCC.

Wednesday has been quite a day for Hard Rock Atlantic City. In addition to getting the green light to let people play slots and blackjack, the casino also announced the entertainment for its opening weekend -- Carrie Underwood on June 29th and Pitbull on June 30th.
