    I'm looking for some good wine, I'm assuming I can find it there. So if I'm coming from the airport going to MGM which Lee's location should I direct the cab driver to? I don't mind paying for a longer cab ride if the one location is better than another.

    Thanks!

    There is a Lee's on Las Vegas Boulevard South between Mandalay Bay and South Point...when you are headed South it is on the left hand side.

    You might not know this but many of the Strip stores like CVS, Walgreens and ABC Stores now carry wine so you can always pick up wine on the Strip (although I can't vouch for the brands). There is also a liquor store I recall in one of the little strip malls betweeh PH and The MGM Grand.

    Way back in August 2010 plans were approved to have Lee's Runway Liquor, owned by Lee's, open inside McCarren.

    Dec, 2011 they were given notice that if construction didn't start by Dec 30, 2011, they would be in default of the agreement.

    As far as I know, it never happened. Too bad, it would have been so logical to buy booze at the airport on the way to the hotel.

    Anyone have an update?

    Lee's Liquor did default so back in February the contract was awarded to the second place bidder for the spot, Liquor Library.

    Their last word on the matter was that they plan to open this fall.

    Little off topic, but after the winery tour in Pahrump, we fell in love with their wine and mine arrived via Fed Ex I ordered yesterday. I am NOT a wine lover, but the Symphony they make there and offer on their website is excellent
