The Most Expensive Birthday Present In History

It might have been the most expensive birthday present in history.

Wynn Las Vegas, Steve Wynn's $2.7 billion megaresort, opened to a crush of at least 10,000 people after the stroke of midnight today in time to celebrate his wife Elaine's birthday.

It was exactly five years from the day Wynn purchased the 217-acre site of the old Desert Inn, which was imploded to make way for his latest creation.

Gawkers who waited several hours in line for a chance to see the property on opening night were greeted by an explosion of yellow, red and purple flowers in the main lobby. The eye-popping color scheme turns up in Asian and art nouveau-style designs reproduced on padded silk walls, carpets, mosaic floors and glass chandeliers.

Wynn said early this morning that it will take a few visits for guests to appreciate the nuances of his new baby.
