Wynn's bad decisions

IT appears Steve Wynn cannot make good decisions when it comes to money.

AVENUE Q is history.

San Francisco has declared a week of mourning.

I have great respect for wynn for what he is done in the past, but it sure seems like he made a few too many mistakes with WYNN. I think one problem is that he tries to control everything instead of sharing with experts when it comes to the entertainment and dining. Just my opinion but Q bombed, Reve required rework, La Bete the nightclub bombed, his ultralounge does not do well, I believe there have been several changes in his restaurants including a chef who quit at the opening, I think the mountain entry was a mistake, I think totally coinless slots are a mistake, I think no hooker bar in the casino is a mistake, I would like to see the golf course at a reasonable price and actually have someone use it. The man deserves all the respect in the world for what he is done, but his latest is not his best work.

I'd say quickly and agressively responding to failing ideas by re-working spaces and themes demonstrates exceptional business acumen.

And its not like it hasn't been done before at new Vegas hotels; both the MGM and Luxor had major renovations done right after opening to correct flaws in the original design and/or presentation.

Further, I'd bet Mr. Wynn's stack is bigger than any of ours.

Winner, you've done it again...no one on this forum provides such hilarious ignorance on such a consistent basis.

LOL, you have got to be kidding. Let’s all call up Steve and give him some advice on building and running hotels. It’s good to have an opinion but come on.

Hey Winner....

I have an idea.....with all your millions, why not you build your own hotel/casino. Ignorance is bliss so you must be very happy.

Hey, plays come and go. Q may have been an odd choice for Vegas, but it's just a simple stage production that can be easily replaced by another.

However, I agree with longboard that the lack of a hooker bar is a regrettable breach of casino tradition. What was Wynn thinking?

That statement is one of the funniest things I have read on this forum since joining. Poor Wynn! With his poor money sense I am sure he will be applying for welfare soon!

Aren't you the same person that stated the stratusphere was coming down?

SW is a genuis. Can't make good decisions when it comes to money. ROTFL!

We all make errors sometimes.

Don't you think just about everything you buy has been tweaked a little either before or after it was released.

Yeah his ego is a little out of line. So what.
