Tropicana New In 2011. Maybe.

While doing the rounds of some of the Vegas casino websites, I noticed a large banner splashed across the middle of the Tropicana's homepage.

Being curious, I clicked it...

In 2011, the Tropicana will look better than ever... come be a part of it

Our multi-billion dollar redevelopment will include:
Up to 600,000 sq. ft. of meeting, exhibit and pre-function space
10,224 beautifully appointed guest rooms by 2012
100,000 sq. ft. casino
250,000 sq. ft. retail mall
First of its kind water attraction ride combining 3D imagery and 4D technology
World-famous Folies Bergere PLUS, a second theater with fantastic "must-see" stage productions
Three luxurious resort spas and fitness centers
and much more...

I don't venture over to the Tropicana's website all that often, probably the last time was about two or three months ago, so this may have been posted eons ago. However, it's still nice to know that the Tropicana folks are aware that the Trop is slowly descending into dirty chaos. It is a bit odd to see the preview there, usually hotels put up 'mind our dust' signs during construction, not... uh... three years beforehand.

Does 'come be a part of it' mean we're all invited to push down the plunger? You can definitely count me in on that action.

While I hate to be the guy who cuts the cheese in the elevator, but let one rip and point out the obvious : there's a better chance that Steve Wynn is going to wash my car than a 'new' Tropicana opening in 2011.

Just for fun, let's see how long it takes before they remove that thing from the homepage.

If it were to happen, its good to know that Folies Bergere will survive. Vegas needs half-naked women on swings flying over the audience. Oh, and if anyone knows what the '4th' dimension is, please advise.

If you want to know what the 4th dimension is, rent the movie Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension.
