At “Studio A” had a cabinet, clad in an interesting application of bamboo material, and a great looking lamintaed linen clad chest with an oversized bronze pulls in the center of each drawer.
I finished the day at Viz Glass, as iin the genre of master glass blower Dale Chihuly, but made in China. They blow “Chihuly-esque” chandeliers that sell for $5,800, about $500,000 less than a Chihuly.
The WMC buildings are arranged in a U-shape, creating a huge courtyard which was lined in bedding displays, backless Europena style low sofas, round firepits, and the site of tonights “Pajama Party" themed cocktail party. Center stage was set with huge mattresses and boxspringa, and a troupe of gymnast’s/dancers dancing, bouncing and jumping and pillow fighting to 80’s hits such as “Jump”. Corny, but the event was packed (free cocktails and cupcakes), I can’t imagine who picked that combo. Male and female models served cupcakes dressed in winter-white clothing, and large knitted scarves and toboggans, an interesting look in the desert. Not exactly my idea of a pajama party in Vegas!
So, what a heck of a day! I was exhausted, and di not look forward to my mile walk back to my room from the Mandalay Hotels front door!
