Let The ARIA Countdown Begin

Ladies and germs... let the ARIA Grand Opening Countdown Clock begin!!!

As some of you remember, we did this same thing - counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until the grand opening of Encore - last year. Apparently, the MGM Mirage folks were so tickled by our countdown clock that they added their own to the ARIA and Vdara websites.

In addition to counting down to the grand opening, we're counting down to the start of our live coverage of the opening festivities, which will officially start on December 15th. I'm very excited to again be covering the cutting of the ribbons with esteemed colleague and fellow VegasGangster Hunter Hillegas. We will be there and so will you, through the magic of mobile technology and the internets.

Are you going to ARIA's Opening... which is 78 days, 08 hours, 17 minutes and 27 seconds from the moment I write this? Let us know!



Comments & Discussion:

dastardly work is keeping me from the grand grand opening, but going for a 3 night stay on the 18th, hopefully in time to fight a crowd. can't wait to check out the digs and action.

I'll definitely be there, and I hope to finally meet you all this time around!

I should be there if the swine flu doesn't kill me first.

If I still have enough vacation days when Dec rolls around, I'll definitely be there.

Chuck - do you know what kind of opening activities they have planned and maybe what time they're doing them? Thanks!

there will probably be a big fancy ribbon cutting ceremony and then a massive fireworks display, followed by the first roll of the dice then a torrent of people running through the hotel like lunatics. me included.
