Cosmopolitan Mania Begins Now!

75% of the VT Team is now swarming about Las Vegas in advance of the soft grand opening of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Right now, I'm the scraggler, tying up loose ends back in the office before I hit the road later tonight.

For those interested, here is the general plan over the next few days.

Tuesday is the first day of media tours and interview opportunities, Wednesday is the ribbon cutting and first day of hotel check in, followed by the grand opening party and the actual opening of the doors to the public at 8pm.

Will be filing reports throughout the next three days on VT proper as well as the attendant Twitter accounts. If you aren't already, you should be following @vegastripping, Chuckmonster, MikeE, JohnH, and Blackjacker1979 as well as our compadre Admiral HHH.

Just like last year, we are planning to have a bunch of meetups so ya'll can finally put some faces to the usernames of your VT friends and tell us in person why "fill in the blank" should/should not be nominated for a Trippies award.

Here's the sched:

12/14 10:11pm Mandarin Bar - Mandarin Oriental

12/15 6:11pm Chandelier - The Cosmopolitan


12/15 8:01pm The First Bet Ceremony - The Dice Tables

12/15 11:11pm Vesper - The Cosmopolitan

12/15 1:11am Bond - The Cosmopolitan

You all have one of the best jobs on earth. I hope your first dice throws are as good as they were at Aria's opening. Wish I was there.

I'm sure you guys have seen this (http://www.lvrj.com/The_Cosmopolitan_Las_Vegas.html) but there is some good stuff there like an "interactive" plate map.

Good luck getting the Delorean up to 88mph so you can make it to the last meeting.

"1.21 gigawatts? 1.21 gigawatts? Great Scott!"

Have fun. It sucks that I'll be tied up today and tomorrow before flying out Thursday, but at least I can check here and see what's happening.

And at least I can explore Cosmo when I get home...

I want to be out there but it won't happen until after the 1st of the year. I've got so many trips I'm tied up in at the moment it's unreal. Going to Europe TWICE next year, a week long cruise, and somewhere in there I'm going to go to Vegas. It's going to be March for a long weekend at the Cosmo. I plan on relaxing and chillin out for most of the time. Leaving the property as little as possible.

Sandy, I think Chuck is on the same train of thought of most bar staff in the world, it may be 1 am but it is still the day I woke up on. the date doesn't change till you wake up the next day.

That being said, maybe there will be a lightning storm to help him out

Would love it if you could snag some menus to post. I was told by the Cosmo that they should be up by now, but they aren't. I'd like to make a good choice for a reservation for Christmas Day. Thanks! Have a great time!

Hmmm... the VT team hits town and the Bellagio gets robbed. Coincidence?

Any one of you guys wear a jumpsuit and own a motorcycle?

And if anyone would like to celebrate with me, I will be at the snack machine in the bus terminal of the Fabulous Atlantic City Hilton, at 3:11 PM hanging out with all the older ladies waiting for their bus ride back to Ridgewood, New Jersey. (Somebody, please get me out of Jersey)
