Just the Right Amount of Wrong

Remember this commercial:

The $3.9 billion Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is Las Vegas’ newest casino/resort. It features a 100,000-square-foot casino, 2,995 rooms, 36,000 square feet of shops, 10 restaurants and a buffet, the Marquee nightclub, a 43,000-square-foot spa and three pools.

Ryan and I just got back from Vegas. Our Disneyland. We gambled....played poker (seen some poker stars btw), gambled more, ate, gambled. You see where we are heading.

Our highlight of the trip was to visit The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. And how did they blow through $3.9 billion? Oh... on CHANDELIERS! They were everywhere. Even in bathrooms. I hate using the term "sexy", but that is exactly what this casino The center piece of the casino is this breathtaking three story chandelier. The chandelier, which took about a year to complete, combines more than 2 million crystal beads and three bars within a 10,000-square-foot space. The 65-foot tall fixture is made up of large crystal curtains combining layers of string that work to create a semitransparent skin around the interior. Like I said.....just the right amount of wrong.

Enjoy a tour of the Cosmopolitan through this photo gallery:

The lobby. Two story high video pillars that greet people.

Next time you are in Vegas.....stop by The Cosmopolitan, Aria and Wynn/Encore. These properties will blow your socks off!
