Update: The Fremont Stench Moves Uptown to Planet Hollywood Miracle Mile Shops

UPDATE: Twelve hours after this story was posted, news has broken that Kevin Dubrow, lead singer of Quiet Riot, has been found dead in his Las Vegas home. I am extremely saddened by the loss of Kevin... Quiet Riot was the first rock concert I ever attended way back at the start of the 'Condition Critical' tour in 1984. That I happened to throw in a reference to Quiet Riot on the same day of Dubrow's passing (before news about it had broke) is a shocking coincidence and in no way is us mocking Kevin's death. - chuckmonster

Just got back in the door from our overnight jaunt to see Ozzy Osbourne at the Hard Rock. We managed to scrape out a little time to check out the newly minted Planet Hollywood and our overall impressions are mixed. The geometrical designs in the casino look like the aftermath of a bloodbath in Quiet Riot's dressing room. The Planet Hollywood did have some interesting stuff, which we will discuss in a 'first impressions' feature in the next day or so.

The Miracle Mile Shops appear to have been redesigned by the architectural firm Frankenstein & Frankenstein. The formerly sky blue ceiling atmospheres have been replaced (in spots) by silver reflective faux tile wallpaper stuff, columns covered with a wallpaper print that contains translations for "courage" and other inspirational words in every language, and a large percentage of the middle eastern architectural features leftover from the Aladdin days have been slathered in a coupla coats of Sears Weatherbeater white. The formerly fantastic vaulted ceilings (like the one by the daquiri stand) have been painted over with the same primer gray your neighbors son painted his '72 Chevy Nova.

Perhaps the most striking feature of the Miracle Mile shops is the odor. HOLY CRAP? Not once, or twice but three times in three completely different locations Miss Monkay and I were overtaken by the smell of raw sewage. One instance of this stink I could probably chalk up to a wandering guests digestive disagreement, but three stinkers in three different locations... this isn't an accident, this is a trend. Yes folks, the famous Fremont Stench has moved uptown to the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.

If you've had similar experiences at the Miracle Mile shops... do tell...



Comments & Discussion:

I that the same smell that you get in the parking garage at IP, by the valet at Harrahs and on the corner of LV Blvd and Flamingo by Caesars? There always seems to be the sewage smell at those spots.

The IP parking garage is where Vegas underground storm drainage system rears its ugly head.http://www.vegastripping.com/news/news.php?news_id=1661Dealing with this is going to be a nightmare for Harrah's when the time comes to drop the IP.

I knew there was a reason why I didn't go through that part of the Planet Ho the other night (I was out there Thursday night through Sunday morning). Maybe I sensed it and my mind told me not to go that way. Now that I think about it, I too have noticed the stench that lingers around not only the garage area of the Impotent Palace, but also around parts of the Harrah's garage and valet area as well.
