Norm: Drai Tells Wynn To Funk Off
The Cromwell is now officially open and VT superfriend Norm! brought the world a basket of gifts from opening night. First, juicy tidbits about the rivalry between Victor Drai and Steve Wynn which include exchanging 86's at each others properties and both sides telling the story of a phone call that ended in expletives and Victor hanging up on The Steve.
The second gift - also from the mouth of Drai - is word that Wynn's profit margins in the nightlife business has dropped a staggering 52% since Drai was forced out and bought of the nightlife operations partnership he had with Wynn. Blame the DJ, blame the DJ, blame the DJ's... and the guy signing the checks.
Victor Drai just might be my new hero. Vive le France!
The third is a phenomenally captionable PR photo of Drai with his new partner, uber square Caesars CEO Gary Loveman. Loveman seems to have exchanged his post-makeover look for something more transitional... and pink.
Caption: "Victor, where do go tanning? Because the place I went to yesterday..."
Big thanks to VT staffer JohnH for the tweet tip and at least three of the jokes in this post.
