LAS VEGAS (AP) - Frank Sinatra fans will get a kick out of the newest Italian restaurant planned for the Las Vegas Strip.
Casino mogul Steve Wynn told a Las Vegas newspaper for a Sunday
report that a restaurant at his newest resort, Encore, will be named Sinatra and will pay homage to the famous singer and Sin City icon.
Wynn tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the Sinatra family has loaned him an Academy Award and Grammy Awards won by the crooner nicknamed Ol' Blue Eyes.
The memorabilia will be prominently featured in the restaurant.
Wynn says songwriter Paul Anka has also promised the gold record
for "My Way," which Anka wrote for Sinatra after Sinatra said he was leaving show business.
Wynn says the "stunning" restaurant won't be a museum. Encore is scheduled to open Dec. 22.
