Great show, as usual. You fellows make Murren sound a lot like Loveman, with the description of someone who isn't much on gambling. Both easterners and more academic than entreneurprial also. This means 70% of the Strip is led by men who look down on their core businesses. Odd.
BTW, can Dave call me? I have this great idea for a Casino that recreates all the original Ocean's 11 properties on different floors. It's a can't miss idea, all I need is backers and I'm sure he has the hook up!!! Simpson can handle the PR, too. This is my lucky day!!!!!

Hunter, did you by any chance request a late check-out at Vdara?

I believe I read somewhere that late check-outs don't qualify for television convenience.

I did not, actually. My check out was 11am.

Not being able to do check-out on the television is a bastard. The past three times at Wynncore the blasted thing has been on the fritz.

Another great show. :)

An item from the show that has stayed with me is the issue of the hard floor surfaces in the public areas. I continue to think that this is something that exists in virtually all great public spaces, and the foundation of your interest is Steve Wynn's comments about the floors at Encore, which he made during the walk through that was presented on the Strip Podcast. I keep trying to think of what massive public areas do not have hard floors, and I come up with nothing. From shopping malls to stadiums, I can't think of anything that features soft flooring. Can you give me examples of where MGM is out of touch by having hard floors in an area where another company would have soft flooring? I keep racking my brain, but I just can't come up with anything, so I'm hoping you can help me move onto something else to obsess about. Thanks.

Well Jeff, the only thing that really matters is if it's a pain in the ass... So I asked my wife who was wearing heels all week. She said she wished there was a little more carpet in the complex so that's one vote for it being an issue.

It's not midnight yet and I needed to vote!
That's POOOO!
