    @Flowers I’ll be checking into Wynn tomorrow around noon - hopefully I’ll be bringing some east coast good luck to the house! ( not the Wynn house!)

    better luck to you

    Well, the afternoon playing sucked so I am taking a break for a bit before dinner at Lakeside with @dbueler.

    Spa update.

    So, there is a great Wynn informational video on Channel 1 in the room that runs a loop and apparently is updated almost daily. It had lots of information, frankly some of which I was unaware. But I did hear the video say with respect to the spa that the "wet amenities for guests receiving treatments are now open . . .", and it specifically mentioned steam, I believe sauna, whirlpool, showers and dressing rooms, so you know it is a current video. And I just stopped by the Wynn spa and they confirmed the same. The receptionist said they still still have capacity constraints, even with limiting it to guests receiving treatments, so if guests stay a long time it could in theory create an issue but so far so good. She said the Wynn spa is smaller than Encore as they have the coed space, and was therefore suggesting that capacity issues might be less of a challenge at Encore though even at Wynn, so far so good. My guess is the weekends will be more challenging than weekdays. She didn't take issue with that statement. I have a facial on Saturday and a massage on Sunday so I will test things out first hand and will definitely be enjoying the steam room!

    Some pics.

    Just FYI. I just read that Wynn is able to open the casino to 100% since the employees are 88% vax. This was as of May 1st so you may have seen most of this already.

    As 88% of the Wynn Las Vegas' employees have been vaccinated, the Nevada Gaming Control Board granted the Wynn and the Encore to operate their gaming areas at full capacity.

    The plexiglass dividers will be removed from all table games and slot machines.

    This means that the 50-play machine at Encore should be back on!

    Shutting down the regular gambling for the day. New start tomorrow. I am here another full week so there is still some time for major magic to happen.

    At Lakeside at my table with @dbueler. It's another beautiful night. A little chilly but beautiful.

    I didn't see but my host shared that when x percentage were vaccinated that that would happen. Didn't realize it would happen so quickly!

    Bread is awesome. We ordered the shrimp cocktail to share and it came out split for us, with our own condiments and all. Perfection.

    Actually, my waiter just shared that the gaming floor is now 100% but restaurants won't go to 100% until June 1st.

    Except for the special brunch for players on January 1st, the Lakeside brunch had been closed throughout Covid. But there is a Mother's Day brunch this Sunday here and at other restaurants, but only for Mother's Day.

    Now that I have had the privilege of doing the behind the scenes tour of the Lake of Dreams as part of the Lake of Dreams Master Class, I can imagine the chaos tied to the last two photos below. Will explain later. Pics from the class coming. It was awesome.
