    strongly considering it, how far is the walk to the nearest casino?
    K barely plays $100/day at the BJ tables

    Encore. Haven't stayed at MO but enjoyed the spa there (Chinese foot treatment) and afternoon tea there in April. Lovely experience but the Encore spa is a far superior to MO's IMO. Not just size but sheer beauty. I love Qua and Encore blew me away. I also absolutely loved my Encore Tower Suite experience. I'm now hooked and will be paying four nights to stay there even though I can have my entire trip comped between CET and Cosmo. Gaming of course is right there but given that Encore is quieter than Wynn it is crazy. Pools are fabulous as well. Too cold for me to enjoy in early April but I visited them to check out the scene. Plus you can catch a show right there, either Le Reve or Showstoppers. Saw the former many years ago and enjoyed it. I highly recommend the latter. I've now seen the show twice in five months and enjoyed it both times.

    I've stayed at Aria and Encore. I prefer Wynncore as a property in terms of rooms and casino vibe. But some people don't like how far Wynncore is from everything else, that does not bother me. In fact I like the walk.

    I've read that MO is a nicer hotel room than a standard Encore room. To me if you want to be near center strip it's a no brainer.

    Brunch at Country Club at Wynncore is very nice and with jazz music on Sundays. I enjoyed the Sunday brunch during my April trip as well.

    Is that where we had brunch together? If so, frank, it's real good with unlimited champagne.
