Encore Grand Opening

VegasTripping is unbelievably excited to announce that we - in partnership with our friends at RateVegas.com will be covering the grand opening of Encore Las Vegas - LIVE - starting on December 21st 2008.

Reporting will be as 'real time' as it gets without lugging around a video camera and a satellite dish. We'll be doing tons of live micro-blogging and as-it-happens photo uploads along with larger blog posts, videos and feature reviews of rooms, restaurants and all the goodies we uncover.

We'll be following comments and questions posted to @vegastripping and @ratevegas.

We've built a fancy live stream console which gathers up all the Twitter & Flickr feeds into one handy dandy place and refreshes them automatically.

Check it out here: http://www.encoreopening.com

Final Note: if you use Internet Explorer 6, or one of the billion kooky versions of AOL or Netscape or another weird browser, the stream page probably isn't going to work. Please please please... we can't urge you enough to take the plunge and download the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari. VT is no longer supporting IE6 and Netscape/AOL browsers.

With all that being said, if the stream console is broken on your computer, we'd love to receive a bug report (include OS, browser name & version number in your report - be as specific as possible). Thanks!



Comments & Discussion:

As always, you have a real "holy crap" grasp on making a stylish web page even for your temporary events.

For reals, how has Apple not found you by now?

thanks mtc... such praise makes me blush.

About the "time TBA" on the Encore Opening site, I believe the Review-Journal reported that Encore will open on 12/22 at 8pm local time.

Hi Arthur, thanks for the comment. Reader MikeE contacted Wynn Resorts after seeing the 8pm listing in the RJ and they said that the RJ article is incorrect and opening will be at midnight. He also says that the RJ since removed the 8pm bit from the article.

My mistake. The bit about 8pm is still in the article, however, yes, I was told midnight, December 22nd. I'll call again shortly and double check. I'm very much expecting service faults on opening days, but if I can't check-in by 8pm, then I'm going to be pretty pissed, especially since I have dinner reservations immediately afterwards.
