Readers Choice for Person of the Year:

Steve Wynn

Two years running, VegasTripping's readers have selected Steve Wynn as the most influential person in Vegas - by a landslide. Neither Gin Sipping Mayor Oscar Goodman or Wynn's arch-nemesis Sheldon Adelson (owner of Venetian) put a dent in the Steve Wynn express. With Wynn Las Vegas' opening over a year displaced from this years nomintation process, we must attribute Wynn's popularity with the domino effect that WLV's opening has kicked off - this time on the northern end of the Strip. No joint in the neighborhood is safe, as the semi-abrupt closure of the Stardust illustrates perfectly.

Thanks Steve!
