Breaking: Palazzo's Soft Opening Date Shifts to 12/28

Las Vegas Sands Inc has pushed back the soft opening of the $1.6 billion Palazzo to at least Dec. 28. I had heard rumblings today but then confirmed it on the Palazzo's website. No reservations are being taken for dates prior to 12/28. I understand about two-thirds of the rooms will be open, the casino and a couple of restaurants. But the grand opening will Jan. 18, when Barney's and all the rest of the place will be unveiled.

Update (9:35 a.m. PT): Just reconfirmed this by calling reservations. The lady told me up front that the date was now Dec. 28. When I said I had heard it was Dec. 20, she said they gave the reservationists the updated information last week.
