Meet The New Monte Carlo Strip Entrance

The Hershey's store/advertisement outside of New York New York has grown infinitely more grand.
Word on the Strip is that the MnMs Store is shitting multi-colored bricks. I certainly hope that the Twizzlers are constructed like those flippy floppy air blown dudes commonly seen on used car lots. It even has the smokestacks like Hershey factory in Pennsylvania! All roads in Las Vegas will soon lead to the Hershey store, thus turning the Strip into The Hershey Highway. Hayoh!
Here's a view of The Park that includes The Arena out back.
Peeping at the site plan we drew way back in April helps make sense of it all. It appears (for now) to be more about hanging out than buying stuff. I'm sure that will change. The trees have already been delivered in the lot behind NYNY. Go say hi.
The new Monte Carlo Strip-facing entrance.
Grand. Gorgeous. I love it. Either side of the entrance will feature open air dining under the canopy.
And then there's this thing on the south side...
And an identical one on the north side... (sbe's Double Barrel)
Clean, sharp lines, but it absolutely doesn't fit the Monte Carlo aesthetic whatsoever. Not even a little bit. This looks a generic retail space.
It is apparent that the vision is to make Las Vegas a little bit less like "Las Vegas" and a little bit more like master-planned city walk/open air shopping district. We've had multiple discussions about this subject recently... but would it hurt so bad to plaster the damn thing and add some columns, capitals and cornices instead of copy/pasting a Chipotle? You can still paint it maroon!
