A worker died this past Tuesday while working on the Wynn Boston Harbor:

In other news, they are considering using the Encore name for this building. Seems like a good PR move that would fit in to their branding:

... Given the Wynn casino's huge amount of 6-5 games in Vegas, honestly as a gamble I would be happy to see a different operator. MGM would be welcome by me, and maybe they would even have some S17 games.

A two hour drive on the Mass Pike will get you to MGM Springfield, scheduled to open in September. You might find real Blackjack there.

I expect I will continue to visit the Connecticut casinos.

With a family and a 9-5, even a two hour drive (or more to CT) is off the table except for a special occasion. I could hypothetically hit up the new Wynn location on the way home from work, if they put in that pedestrian bridge from Assembly Square.

Eventually I will probably make a trip to Mohegan or Foxwoods. Should have married a fellow gambler :(

Mohegan Sun lobbied heavily for the Everett-based casino license but lost out. Perhaps there are private conversations going on about a possible sale to Mohegan Sun. Just my speculation, nothing public that I can find.

Hello babs,

Looks like we have to change the name of this thread once more. Hopefully.

Saw that coming.

In other news, the outer covering of the building is almost done.

Few weeks ago:

And just last week:

Sorry for the poor image quality on the first one. I have learned I should take these in the afternoon, with the sun behind me and not just out of frame ahead. Surely a real photographer would know these things, but I'm just a rube with a smart phone.

So I think its still a Wynn owned property its just that the name Wynn is off of it and he is personally out of the picture too. It will be known as Encore apparently.

The adjacent clean up was funded by the casino company but is not on casino property. Apparently the casino found out what they mean in Boston by the term 'pretty penny' on those ever escalating cleanup costs.

"Charlie card"... Undoubtedly a reference to that guy who is still riding the MTA in that song of yesteryear.
