Encore Opening

December 24, 2008
Monday we stayed at Treasure Island. We received a promo that allowed us to book for $49/night. We've been meaning to stay there for ages, finally we got a rate that was too good to pass up. We tried to upgrade to suite, but none were available. Instead, we had a room on the 25th floor. It was nice, the bed was especially comfortable.

We had dinner at Venetian's Grand Lux. You can never go wrong Buffalo Chicken Rolls, A Wedge salad, or Chicken Parmesan. It was delicious, as always. We watched the Bears win, but we lost our bet. We had the Bears and the over. Encore opened it's doors to the public at 8pm. We headed over thru Wynn at after 9pm. There was a long line to enter Encore, Frank showed security our Red Card and they let us through. Encore was very crowded. It was tough to find an open slot or video poker machine. Bars were three people deep. Table games were packed. The $100 craps game had a ton of action. We checked out all the areas that were open. We couldn't get back to see Sinatra, since a private event was being held in the restaurant. The property is beautiful, especially the gardens and natural light. There are butterflies everywhere, the mosaic ones in the floor are gorgeous. Tomorrow, I plan to head over and give it another look without all the crowds. I took photos, but excuse the quality, it was tough to get good shots while keeping up with the flow of the crowds.
