Issues with its marketability. They plan to replace it with a 10 million square foot facility including 5 hotel towers with over 5,000 rooms. Construction on that will start in July.

I'm thinking of staying up for the Stardust implosion, because it's such a big one. If I do I'll post photos in the Vegas thread in the continental / westcoast forum.

encore is a common word in english, its in dictonarys and all that, they probaly consider it an english word. They shot it out at concerts and stuff.
