I just don't understand why Asians would come to Vegas looking for an Asian themed casino. Just build a casino and make sure it's staffed with Asian speaking people, and do whatever it is you need to do to accommodate them and appeal to their superstitions. If you must have an Asian themed casino at least call it Bruce Lee's Enter The Dragon or whatever. Perhaps a Bruce Lee show production with a Cirque quality. I would absolutely go see that.Quote: MDawg
Well let's see how the next Asian themed casino does - the mega, incoming Resorts World. Besides the Lucky Dragon, we had - The Mandarin, which wasn't a casino, but it was Asian themed, and it failed too.
I don't go into Bally's much if at all, but friends tell me it is very popular with Asians. At the other end we had the Hard Rock Vegas, which Asians seemed to have always eschewed.
Why not, it is illegal to put anything on the internet that is not true.Quote: AxelWolf
Don't believe or repeat everything you read on the internet.
(No, I do not recall what commercial that is from).
Bruce Lee? I think his best movie was Marlowe, a neo-noir film based on The Little Sister.
(Noir: All cops are crooked, all alleys are blind, all dames are gin soaked temptresses who lead a man to his doom.)
(Neo-Noir: Noir film shot with a big budget and more than one camera).
Um ya, That's exactly what I was thinking...Quote: MDawg
Somehow the Bruce Lee Cirque de Soleil concept reminds me of William Shatner's rap version of Julius Caesar from "Free Enterprise."
Asians donít come to vegas for Asian themed stuff. They come here for bomb ass buffets like Bachanal, however they do appreciate being able to have hosts that speak Chinese and some Chinese food restaurants(not orange chicken). But they could care less about ambiance or azn themes. More stoges more buffets more gamboooo
This moniker of "Asian" is misleading as it covers many different groups with a wide variety of tastes, beliefs, behaviors and personalities. Even within China, there are big differences between folks from the north and south, and they are not unlike America in that respect.
My friend with the tinfoil hat suggests that maybe the Lucky Dragon management wasn't just stumbling about in the dark before falling out the window... maybe they were pushed. If it was my job to stifle their business because they wouldn't pay their "association fees", I would make sure the printer understood that their mailers were to be given a low priority, or maybe some files would be "lost" resulting in delays. I would also make sure the food service delivery drivers understood that getting "lost" on the way there wasn't a bad thing if they wanted to keep their jobs, and maybe all their fingers...

And then there are ABCs like me who are neither "Asian" enough nor "American" enough in the eyes of everyone.
I liked Lucky Dragon, but I was there in the VERY narrow window of when it was a decent place to visit.
