    Cosmopolitan
    Encore
    Excalibur

    On all of them I have no idea. What bothers me is that my BIL calls Paris: "Paris Paris" like how you would say New York New York.

    So... should he say "THE Paris Paris" or just "Paris Paris"?

    Tried to correct him a million times but he doesn't get it. Might as well get the "THE" part correct.

    Wouldn't it be "Paris, France"?

    Methinks your BIL is just yanking your chain.

    Yes, he probably is. And doesn't even know it. He yanks EVERYBODY'S chain, lol!

    I wouldn't doubt he thinks Paris is in Mozambique.

    I know I am not your BIL because I don't have any BIL who have ever been to Vegas or are even remotely interested in spending money to go anywhere, let alone Vegas. That said, I sometimes say Paris Paris. It just subconsciously slips out. I don't always say that, but sometimes it happens and I know that it is called Paris.

    No, that started with The U. Then came the copiers. Now players are talking and say "THE community college of Central Northwestern Montana"

    Everywhere on their site says "The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas" including their logo on the top and the copyright at the bottom.

    So? Is it just "15" or "The 15"?

    "Strip" or "The Strip"?

    "Bronx" or "The Bronx"? :)

    We may have to agree to disagree on this one.

    The trademarked logo says "The Cosmpolitan of Las Vegas". Their official mailing address also references "The Cosmo..."

    Wild eyed guess here since it's free:

    The Mirage (for sure)
    The Venetian
    The Wynn
    The Flamingo
    The Linq


    It'll be fun to find out which are 'The'.........
