The marquee out front of the dirt patch formerly known as the New Frontier is currently being disassembled and removed at Steve Wynn's request (and expense.)

Thank you Mr. Wynn.

"It belongs in the museum!"

I snagged some shards of "Ride the Bull" neon tubing that were smashed on the ground a few months ago.

I was hoping that it would stay up as long as the El Rancho sign. It must have been up for like 15 years after the property closed

i'll miss the ol' "cold beer, dirty girls" sign.

over on vegastodayandtomorrow.com , they have pics fo the new Encore sign going up. Obviously, it's not lit up yet, but the basics of the sign seem...disappointing to me. it looks a little retro-vegas, like it's the style of a sign that's been around for 15-20 years. compared to the Wynn sign, it's not too impressive. just have to see it active.

There were still some parts of it up when I drove by Friday, but when I drove by there early this morning, the sign was completely disassembled and sitting on the ground.

I looked at the Encore sign and I had to say one thing..... BORING. I had fully expected that it would be a step up from the Wynn sign (one of the coolest signs in Las Vegas.).

when i got to vegas lats friday there was a bit of the sign left but when monday am rolled around the sidewalk was blocked off and most, if not all of the sign was gone. as i was heading back to TI after a trip to Freemont that night even more was gone. i did snap a few pics of the pieces though
