Decided to take advantage of a Blackjack Tournament offer from my host at the Cosmo this weekend. Living in LA makes a quick weekend trip like this worth driving up and giving it a chance. Drove up yesterday (Friday) afternoon. 3 1/2 hours later I arrived at the Cosmo (around 3:30 PM). No problem at VIP check-in...the regular lines were crazy. They must have had a special VIP or celebrity arriving at the same time because there was a huge reception line of all the executives and managers as I walked in. While checking in we heard loud applause and cheering. I never found out who it was. Maybe it was Nate leaving for his trip to LA. :confused2: My room is a Terrace Studio overlooking the fountains at Bellagio.
