    It's going to cost you more to stay and shop at some Connecticut Casinos.

    Foxwoods Resort Casino is reaching to New York City to try and fill seats at some of it's shows.

    The casino has teamed up with Peter Pan Bus Lines to run buses from Manahttan to Foxwoods on five days this summer.

    Special charters will run June 19, July 17, July 24, July 31 and Aug. 7. Those dates just so happen to coincide with shows at Foxwoods or at MGM Grand at Foxwoods, and the casinos are offering discounted tickets to those who ride the special charter buses in from New York.

    The shows include Saturday's Lionel Richie concert, Ladies Night Out on July 17, Johnny Mathis July 24, Heart July 31, and the Clay Aiken/Ruben Studdard show Aug. 7. Tickets are also offered for the Legends in Concert and Titanic Artifact Exhibition on each of those dates.

    Bus tickets cost $25 round trip, and the buses will leave from 34th Street and 8th Avenue in New York.

    Reservations can be made by calling 860-312-3448.
