The boss sent Chuckmoster to Macau to see what the deal was with Asia's Las Vegas. He returned smitten and poured his love it into creating the world's first guide to Macau casinos. This was his blog until we invited long time contributor and Macau expert Dramman join the team. Hi.
MGM Resorts International released a number of renderings of the upcoming MGM Cotai project to investors.
The design theme builds on the layer cake design of MGM Grand Macau, but arranged into a tower of lucky 8 individual of jewel boxes and one glass atrium between the top two.
The window patterns are fascinating. I'll bet they don't exactly come out this way as meticulously framing the glass in these panes will cost a fortune and take a long long time.
It is a damn shame that MGM doesn't do similar designs for their burgeoning network of casinos in the United States.... Springfield and National Harbor.
Wynn Resorts LTD has hired Australian contractor Leighton to shepherd Wynn Cotai from design to reality.
Wynn Cotai is the third project Leighton has collaborated on with Wynn and the fifth Macau gaming project overall. Leighton was the contractor of record for Wynn Macau, Wynn Encore Macau, Melco Crown's City of Dreams and SJM's Fisherman's Wharf projects.
Site preparation is already under way, with shovels "officially" scheduled to hit the dirt in December 2012 for an early 2016 opening.
With the U.S. President Barack Obama now re-elected, the eyes of one journalist has turned to the man who funded challenger Mitt Romney's campaign, Sands Chairman Sheldon Adelson.
The U.S.'s National Broadcasting Company raises long lingering questions about Adelson's connection to organized crime, prostitution and other unsavory (?) sins while also indicting Macau via the old Jane Russell flick. Like, the coulda chosen the new James Bond film Skyfall as that has a few unsavory scenes in Macau (as imagined on a London soundstage) as did Roger Moore Bond chestnut The Man with the Golden Gun.
Las Vegas Sands Corp. d/b/a Sands China Limited have announced the grand opening of Sands Cotai Central™ in 2012. Unfortunately, they've done so with an ad campaign at appears to be based around people putting fingers in unsuspecting, floating Sands icon buttholes.
Sands. Cotai. Central.... be at the "Centre" of it all.
For those who live in territories that get the Travel Channel, be sure to tune in tonight for Anthony Bourdain's visit to Macau.
He eats, he walks around casinos, he eats, he drives carts, he eats and he bungee jumps off the Macau tower.
