A Rare Look at Elaine Wynn

Posted by Hunter

Elaine Wynn, wife of casino developer Steve Wynn, doesn't get the kind of media coverage that her husband does (and I doubt that keeps her up at night). As the article states, the most common phrases I hear when Mrs. Wynn is discussed are 'elegant' and 'graceful'. While she might not be the public face of Wynn Resorts, she is a director and her presence is felt in every aspect of Wynn Las Vegas.

Speaking of Wynn, I went there tonight. The B Bar is now completely sealed away behind construction walls, and the Bonus Bingo game has ended, probably because it was a bit too predictable (everyone got the same 'losing' card design, meaning one only had to look around to see how it worked.)

Otherwise, still clean and on it's game.

What are they doing to the B Bar space? When I was there the end of April, the tables in that area were always sitting idle. I did hear an unconfirmed rumor that changes/enhancement would be made to the entire high limit table and slot rooms, but I didn't get any details. I still miss a lounge with music, similar to Bellagio's Petrossian and Baccarat basrs.

I won Bonus Bingo three times, each for $50-60, not enough to retire.

Yeah, the B Bar, was changed to a High limit area, I was there this week as well, and Now I hear its going back to a bar??? I don't know. I do know the Rolex store is ready to open any day now, the glass display cases are already installed, just have to be loaded, but as of yesterday, the sign was not up. I just hope if that goes back to a bar, they add live music. That's the one thing Bellagio has over Wynn, live nightly ,entertainment.

Yeah, I hear it is going to be a bar as well. That's been the long term plan for some time. Let's hope so. I agree with Brian, the lack of live entertainment and walk-up bars ala Bellagio's Petrossian/Baccarat/Fontana outlets.

If only it were true that Bonus Bingo is gone. I endured at least three rounds of it this morning, including the inevitable Bwa-ha-ha-ha just as I failed to draw out on a 4 to a Royal VP hand.

Based on some building permits, I can confirm that this is going to be a bar again.
