Reader John sent in this link, with a short and very succinct comment attached. He says:
Uh-oh is right. When you are Steve Wynn, the world will come visit based on your brashitude and stellar track record. When your Glenn Schaeffer, and your new resort has no Players Club database to speak of, a noobful marketing team, no real cache of clients, is opening at roughly the same time as Aria / City Center, and the economy is in the shit can... you've got your work cut out for you. And that doesn't even take into account that your resort's name is barely pronounceable without prerequisite two weeks of 7th grade French (or a suitable substitute : Skinemax.)
For the record: Fontainebleau = Fountain blue.
I'm not completely convinced that Fontainebleau is in a disadvantaged location, yes the neighborhood has a larger share of abandoned projects surrounding it, but the latest and greatest joint in town - Encore - is only five minute walk away, as is Circus Circus and the Riviera... PLUS there's a SexXxpresso directly between both. Uh. Strike that. It is a disadvantaged location.... my bad.
