Dear Steve Wynn, About Opening Night...

Make A  Jazz Noise Here

Dear Steve,

Thanks for the super poke! Elaine threw an Obama at me the same time you threw Sarah Palin at me. You two are just plain adorable... Facebooking together. Anyways, I'm sure that you are super busy dealing with all the final details at Encore - like, omg! there's only 40 days left till opening? Time flies almost as fast as LVS stock certificates in the wind!

Knowing your fascination with art and classical music - btw, I love the way you named those meeting rooms at Encore (read the comments) - I thought that you should know that the date of Encore's opening - 12/21 - is the birthday of one of the greatest American composers of the last 100 years - Frank Zappa.

I don't know if there is any truth to the rumors that Michael Jackson, Hugh Jackman and/or Celine Dion will be performing at the opening, but if you're looking to really knock the ball out of the artistic park, you should consider hiring Zappa.

Oh wait... Frank's dead. Prostate cancer took him from us at the young age of 52. I can't believe it's been 15 years already - December 4th, 1993 - Frank passed just six weeks after you opened Treasure Island. You guys were practically the same age too... he was a scant 36 days older than you. To think what the world would be like if your number was called by the man upstairs before you got to build Bellagio, or WLV, or Encore.

Anyways... maybe you should call Frank's son Dweezil (his number is 818.PUMPKIN - seriously!) Zappa Plays Zappa isn't booked that week.

Or you could call room service.

Think about it. I'll see you on the 21st!
