'Twas The Night Before Tripmas

'Twas shortly before Tripmas,
And Trippers far and near
Were quietly reflecting
On what's happened this past year.

We watched as Wynn closed Alex,
And made the Tower Suites less regal.
All part of the apparent dumbing-down
By Marilyn Winn Spiegel.

And CityCenter, so important
To how the region fares
Gave guests eco-friendly rooms,
Then gave them Legionnaires.

CET took action
To address the alley stink
Between IP and Flamingo
By announcing Project Linq.

Tropicana fell victim
To renovation overreach
With departures by Brad Garrett,
Gladys Knight, and Nikki Beach.

Ownership transferred at the Plams,
Oops - Palms - sorry, my goof.
TPG/Leonard Green
Bought control from George Maloof.

When Sahara closed but promised
To reopen, some cried, "Sham!"
We still want our camel lamps.
Are you reading this part, Sam?

As this year draws down to a close,
And we pause to reflect
I think we might all just agree
'Twas bittersweet, at best.

We raise a glass to the departed,
To our good friend Jeff Simpson.
Taken from us much too soon,
Undeniably, we'll miss him.

But life is for the living,
Or so some grieving fool once said.
So let's hope now for better things
In the coming year instead.

On the Vegas trips you take this year
We wish you the best of luck.
May you line up those three eagles
And take home Megabucks.

May your standard room be upgraded
To the biggest suite you please
May your stay be complimentary
May they waive your resort fees.

May you know the camaraderie
Of the VT friends you have here
We sincerely wish for all of you
That 2012's your best year.

Happy Holidays!
