What happens when you mix America, Italy and China? See above. Our Favoritest Photo of the Week comes to us from the other side of the planet where the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel opened this week. Just like the Venetian in Las Vegas, there's even a faux canal with singing gondoliers. (We once witnessed a proposal there ourselves.) Sail away with the original caption:

Gambling tables are set inside the casino during the opening ceremony of the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel in Macau Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2007. Casinos like the Wynn and Sands have already helped this southern coastal Chinese city surpass the Las Vegas Strip as the world's most lucrative gambling center. American billionaire Sheldon Adelson aims to take a step further with the US$2.4 billion (euro1.8 billion) Venetian scheduled to open Tuesday. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)
