    I have heard that story but at least that was out of view of guests.

    The hoop was only there during the event... not even the whole day

    I was at the Venetian Macau on Sunday, it was jam packed with people, most of which went to the resort for the NBA China games and of course, to spend the long weekend.

    I think HKDL should consider building an auditorium and then bring their stage shows like Lion King and Mary Poppins over. These shows will add crowds to the resort and HK needs more auditoriums anyway.

    We are off topic, but I have never been to the original so I cannot compare. But it is huge and they are building a Four Seasons Hotel next door with a Sheraton opposite.

    By the way, MGM Grand will open in December this year, near Wynn Macau.

    Anyway, I still maintain that HKDL should build a proper Disney Auditorium for stage shows. It will help their business just like the NBA China games help Venetian Macau gets more visitors.

    It does seem that they get a lot of the convention and 'event' crowds, or at least that is where the publicity department is focused. Sounds like a great idea, Asa.
