Rip Van Resorts World Wakes Up

Good news guys... Resorts World Las Vegas has FINALLY finished paving their parking garage - 69.71 weeks later since the last time they posted any updates on the Twitter. At this rate, the property should be open for the next generation of millennials. One would suspect that this random update probably means even more are on the way. Meanwhile, our friends at ālon are still in super secret stealth mode. Or maybe they've been vaporized they're hard at work. See Ma? Social media isn't TOTALLY useless....

#VIMFP: World Series of Satin Casino Jackets

We're super excited to announce that The World Series of Satin Casino Jackets will return to the Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic #VIMFP once again this year. Inspired by an old VT feature article honoring the lowly embroidered casino jacket, the one given out to slot tournament runner ups or sold in the casino gift shop, the World Series of Satin Casino Jackets is a bizarro fashion show and casino history lesson wrapped in competitive absurdity. WSOSCJ is also one of the many VIMFP events...

See The Venetian's New Retro Commercial

The Venetian Las Vegas has released a brand new ad campaign wraps Mad Men era style and Cosmopolitan quirk in a squeaky clean Wes Anderson inspired 60 second commercial entitled "Come As You Are." Check it out: I like the ad. Not sure what, if anything, it has to do with The Venetian. You could overlay some prices on the outfits and slap a JCPenney logo on the end and it would make more sense. Big huge thanks to long time VT reader MeltYrselfDown...

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I just wanted to take a minute to share with y'all the long-form diary of the recent trip to Macau that I shared with Hunter and JohnH. I started typing this story out on my iPhone during the outbound flight 38 days ago, publishing chapters as quickly as I could during the trip. Jetlag be damned, I've spent nearly all of the last three weeks writing up the rest, posting the last chapter on Tuesday morning. Perhaps the biggest takeaway from this trip is how...

Wynn Commences Construction On Wynn Plaza Project

Construction on Wynn Plaza, a Strip-facing shopping esplanade which will connect the former Ferrari dealership with the forthcoming ālon resort at the stairway entrance at the front of Encore has begun. The front lines of the next casino war. Wynn has removed all of the landscaping between the self-park garage and The Strip and blocked off automobile and pedestrian access. Now, they've got bobcats out there tearing up the sidewalk and eventually the asphalt. Very exciting. I recorded a video walkthrough of this area a few months ago. Let...
