The Former Seablue Is Now a Shill for MGM Tweets

From Seablue to social media. Michael Mina's shuttered venture at the MGM Grand has been operating as temporary private event space before construction on the space's teased relaunch as Mina's version of a gastropub.

Now, the front entrance has been reduced to a mock celebrity/VIP photo opportunity. Visitors can pose and preen on a red carpet in front of a MGM backdrop, hit a button, wait five seconds and retrieve a Twitter- and Facebook-ready photo to upload direct to their accounts. And "for free." Rest assured, the restaurant's former frontage will be cropped out so it doesn't spoil photographic proof of living it up at the MGM Grand.

This section of the resort was recently re-branded as The District, with new signage that directs visitors to undefined "restaurants." Previously, Seablue, Emeril's Fish House and Diego earned top billing status on signs leading guests to the rear of the resort.

No current word on a prospective opening date for the gastropub, and sadly, for Mina watchers, the digital camera does not provide live-cam opportunities to spy the chef's future comings and goings.
