ARIA Renovating Everything

In addition to changing their carpet, having their President & COO resign, renovating the Buffet and showing the VP of Food and Beverage the door in a day of firings, ARIA has also decided to give Bar Moderno a bit of a sprucing up.
We'll bet they're laying some new carpeting upgrading the tables and chairs and maybe doing some other basic upgrades upgrades. Any greater of a renovation and they'd have to build proper wall to ceiling dust and noise containment.
Also worth noting that the center carpet has also been replaced. JohnH (who took both of these photos) conjectured that the carpet design is an extension of the Silver River piece (by Maya Lin) hanging over the registration desk against the window to the Pocket Park. Very astute observation... with the frothy rapids on the non-path walkways pools of sudsy spooj. Mmmmm.
Also worth noting is the new upholstery on the casino chairs. Not just fancy... that is Pottery Barn fancy!
This is certainly some kind of vindication to the VT peanut gallery's united chorus of "eeeeew" that greeted ARIA's fittings at opening. If I had any beef now, it would be for them to turn the lights down again... man, I loved that casino when it was really dark inside. Shadows, light and aperiodic shapes... exquisite. Maybe with the brighter carpet, they can turn down the ambient light again.... we'll see.
Big thanks to
