Cosmopolitan Opening: Coverage This Week

Posted by Hunter

The big week is here - Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opens on Wednesday. I'll be in town most of the week to cover the event for for my favorite Internet readers, you.

The fun starts on Tuesday with another set of tours and interviews, continues on Wednesday with a ribbon cutting ceremony and then wraps up at 8pm when the doors are open to the public.

Two Way HQ will be setup in my Cosmo suite so that I can bring you all photos, video and commentary from me and a bunch of other interesting folks too. Should be fun and it's the last one of these we'll get to do for awhile.

For those that are also in town, there are several meet-ups planned:

12/14 10:11pm Mandarin Bar - Mandarin Oriental

12/15 6:11pm Chandelier - The Cosmopolitan


12/15 11:11pm Vesper - The Cosmopolitan

12/15 1:11am Bond - The Cosmopolitan

Hope to see you there.

In addition to the opening coverage, I'll be performing a final round of 'boots on the ground' testing for Vegas Mate 3.0, which is about to be completed.

Have fun this week! Maybe I can squeeze in Tuesday, but I'll have a busy schedule this week. I'm so bummed I have a meet & greet on Wednesday getting in the way of the grand Cosmo opening. And since I fly out of town Thursday, I probably won't be able to see Cosmo until the new year.

It should be interesting, since this likely will be the last Strip casino opening we see in five years.

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone Tuesday night. Looking forward to Cosmo. I'm already "camped" out next door at Bellagi

Have fun, I guess.

I find each successive casino opening to be less exciting, I find. Part of it is that the disappearance of themes means there's nothing exciting for me to look forward to except maybe a new restaurant or two since I don't gamble anymore. And since some of my friends get early guided walkthroughs before I'm even allowed to enter, the whole "get there before anyone else, be the first in line" campout appeal that I would entertain for Apple launches or Star Wars debuts is kind of pointless.

I was out of state for CityCenter's opening and didn't even feel like I missed anything important. We'll see.
