Vegas Mate Review of the Week
This week’s review is Stuart Poyner’s July 1st review of Michael Jackson ONE @Mandalay Bay – 3/5 chips

Twitpic of the week

This week’s winner comes to us from @Palms and it is remarkable.  This is a perfect example of what we were talking about last week.  While we always prefer the “Twitpic of the week” to be a person, from time to time, properties roll out a professional photo that is too stunning to not award.  This photo was taken from the former Playboy Club space, at the top of the Fantasy Tower looking over the pool at night onto the strip.  In my opinion, views like this are unquestionably the best feature available at off-strip properties.  This photo is breathtaking.  There is a pinkish, purpleish glow in the sky as the sun goes down only adding to the beauty of the properties exterior lighting.  The shot captures Rio, Caesars, Bellagio and parts of most of the properties surrounding them.  The view is extraordinary.
