New Joint : Monte Car

Meet the new joint, somewhat same as the old joint. Recently smoldering Monte Carlo is undergoing repairs and renovations in the wake of the accidental fire on its upper floors.

In possible in homage to MGM Mirage moneymakers Siegfried and Roy's one night only return, MGM Mirage has decided to rename the flammable property the Monte Car - at least temporarily. It is unclear if any of the Monte Hallways on the upper floors will require major reconstruction. I'll give $25 to anyone who has a piece of drywall. Anyone? $25 for a piece of drywall. If you don't get it... you're too young.

The marquee has been removed from most of the buildings spokes, fire or no fire. Could we have seen the end of the Monte Carlo's cursive (boring) type face?

Repairs seem to be progressing quite quickly, at least on the exterior of the building. All visible fire damage has been painted over or removed, and most of the guts have been plastered over and primed. Some of the horizontal decorative bits appear to have been removed on both sides, at least the parts that caught fire from falling embers.

As has been reported widely elsewhere, the Monte Car is scheduled to re-open this Friday for the Presidents day three day weekend.
