Manneken Pis LV at The D

Moments ago, Derek and Greg Stevens unveiled Mannekin Pis LV a super sized 500 lb. bronze recreation of the famed Belgian sculptural icon that has been installed at The D. The statue is located on a new fountain located near the valet pick up stand, catty cornered to the DLVEC's main entrance.

Mannekin Pis LV

Manneken Pis LV (pronounced 'mannequin piss l.v.") will be taking a non-stop whiz at the D for the next 100 years or so. Derek requests that visitors refrain from throwing Flomax at Manneken Pis LV.

Much like his Belgian counterpart(s) Mannken Pis LV will have seasonal attire... can't wait to see what he wears for VIMFP.

I Periscoped a woman fully inverted and barfing at the bottom of Manneken Pis LV's fountain on Saturday night.... wish I kept the video.

The big question is when will The D start serving an extensive selection of Trappist beer on tap?

Comments & Discussion:

Maybe a Belgian beer bar should be one of the things they put in at the former Las Vegas Club.

I've already considered never visiting the D again.

^^ Because you are against public urination statues or do you hate anything from Brussels?

One thing that has surprised me is how many people are reacting negatively to this addition to The D. In some places online, there are people calling it disgusting and/or tasteless. I wonder if these folks feel the same way about the replica of the Statue of David at Caesars Palace.....

A suggestion: Filling the statue with Fireball during VIMFP. Great photo ops and dares. Plus, free booze.

I think it could be all in good fun, especially if the tradition surrounding the original takes hold in Vegas. I always found it clever...

Hopefully those offended people aren't looking at the Skymall magazine on their flight into Vegas as there's usually a replica of this statue for sale in it.
