    LOL, as in Gansevoort! :) (Pronouncing "Gansevoort" shall be left as an exercise for the student.) :)

    Grandissimo sounds like a name for a frozen pizza.

    Keep it Detroit themed: the Straits. Detroit means the the Straits in french roughly? lots of puns available then,,, Strait shooter board (like the golden arm), Strait flush progressive etc.. Add in the Corktown wine bar and steakhouse. Howe's Doughnuts and coffee, and the Windsor cafe as a nod to Canadians. and the theme continues

    I still hate the name Grandissimo. If you look at Jay Sarno's original dream of what Grandissimo was going to be (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DcLvOIpV0AEQKGy.jpg), anything that could occupy one square block downtown pales in comparison. Grandissimo, if the name is ever used, needs to be used on something spectacular. I could see that name plate on a hotel like Vdara, but not downtown..

    Indeed. The '18 Fremont' project won't even be the best resort Downtown, so certainly not worth of the name.

    Hmmmm ... I wonder if Boyd might have some objection (even legally?) over the name "18 Fremont" for possible brand confusion with The Fremont?

    Wonder when they are going to ramp up construction on it? Looks like a big dirt pile being pushed around lol Of course we could just keep it simple like Da one. At least they won't mispronounce it. LOL on the pizza comment above.

    To borrow freely from ZZ Top, they could call it 'Tres Hombres' and go with a Tex-Mex theme...and, coincidentally, tie in with the number of downtown properties they own!

    As it's opposite The Golden Gate how about The Silver Gate, what with Nevada being the Silver state and the two properties being the gateway to Fremont Street?
    Or The Vic?
     
    Until the next Vegas trip...
