Did you know that the Wynn/Encore Resort in Las Vegas has a no strollers policy? I've been wanting to post something about this for a long time but have resisted, knowing that I will probably get a ton of backlash for my views on this.
I PRAISE the no stroller policy. The world is filled with all kinds of special policies, special reduced family pricing/rates, rules, allowances, line cutting privileges, childrens' sections/tables, ECT ECT ECT ECT. I appreciate that this is the ONE place that I can go to indulge without being bothered by other people's children and all the obstructions that come with them - i.e. strollers. Vegas is not a place for children and I think this rule makes that very clear.
I understand it would be frustrating for a mom, and it might seem unfair. But, some places are just NOT for children - and nobody seems to respect that. I don't want to hear a screaming kid at the table next to me when I'm paying $400 for a nice steak dinner at the Wynn. I'm sorry, but I don't want to be burdened by your choice to breed when I'm at the Wynn. At the grocery store - fine, it's different, we're in public...the grocery store is a place for everyone. But this is the WYNN LAS VEGAS - the Disneyland for adults ~ take your kids to the real Disneyland - the place that's MADE especially just for them.
Not surprisingly, I wrote a blog about it! It's called Baby Bullies. Enjoy. http://vievesverdict.blogspot.com/2010/11/baby-bullies.html
