New Wynn casino in Vegas nice, but four hours people?
Wynn Las Vegas, the just opened Las Vegas shrine to all things money, is impressive enough. All the fresh flowers are a nice touch if you’re not allergic to the beauties. The themelessness of the casino is a welcome departure. And who can quibble with the idea of a Ferrari dealership to browse through on the grounds?
But with all that said, it’s still just a casino. Which is why the scene at this week’s opening extravaganza spoke to the ridiculousness of the Las Vegas hype. People waited in line for four hours and more to walk through the doors. Four hours? For a casino?
Look, I never been a big believer in the waiting in line thing. Camping out overnight for rock concert or sports tickets always struck me as a colossal waste of time and resources. Your time isn’t worth the extra 20 bucks for a scalped ticket? But at least those things require a wait. At Wynn, you’re standing on your feet for hours to get into a casino you could just saunter into easy as can be in another few days.
And you thought the Runaway Bride was the only idiot who retreats to Las Vegas?
You better believe every other hotel in town loved Wynn this week. They all jacked up their room rates starting as early as Tuesday night for this grand Sin City event. Here’s hoping dumbness that happens here, stays here as well.

In our opinion Steve Wynn hit a home run . We believe once the bugs are worked out this establishment it will be second to none. Mr. Wynn's hotel has/will set the standared for Las Vegas to follow.
We will return!!!!!
Wynn, you lost touch with the street. Maybe it's because you stand on the top of your building!
I am not a "Bill Gates" type, so, I guess maybe it's not for me. But who knows maybe it's worth the peek.
Steve Wynn you have to want to be the best and appreciate the beauty. I did not see the Wynn but I love the Bellagio.
Very nice, no crowds. Played the lower end of the high-limit slot area
($10&25 machines) finished the week with approx. $10K to the good!!
Enjoyed the food places; even the buffet, which I never do anywhere!
Nice folks at the machines, and a great host.
i was there last week, immedialy got a playing card and right at that aways sat down at Let it ride and play.
this hotel being made 1 year and I come back the next and it was built.
My brother works there. This is the
most beautiful hotel that I have seen
in a long time. The food excellent
The shops excellent. The only thing
I did not get to see is the Hotel Rooms that because I stayed at my brother's house. I would love on day to spend 2 days and 2 nights thanks for a beautiful time there anyway.
Recently I had the privilage to work on "The Wynn", and could not be more impressed with the way departmentmental staff interacted with one another. Bias and head butting can always be expected in the launching of a new ship, but, once under sail ...the crew understands the red sky warnings.
For what its worth, I believe Steve has a HELL of a place!, and anyone who has the opportunity to visit-Should!
This guy is a moron.
