    I'm posting this to put pressure on myself to complete our
    trip report this week.

    So here's a preview:


    Had a fantastic time. The Parasol Up bar is now our new place to relax, people watch and enjoy excellent cocktails when staying at the Wynn.
    Can I just say... Peanuts, White Cosmos (my fave) and Pear-asols (his fave), oh my!?! :drunk:

    Here's a sneak peek of some of our winnings:

    and

    :thumbsup:

    We're mainly slot players, in case you're wondering.

    We'll also report our Wynncore dining adventures at Country Club, Sinatra and Society Cafe.

    Ate at the M Resort lunch buffet (before checking into Wynn) and enjoyed some successful slot play.

    Had lots of fun and won here and there on lots of the new slots at M Resort, Venetian/Palazzo and Wynn/Encore.
    Titles include: Outback Jack Adventures, LOTR 3 Reel, Princess Bride, and Aladdin.

    Also...get ready for a mini-review of The Chuck Jones Experience at Circus Circus.

    That's all (for now) folks! :wave:

    Details to follow in our trip report, coming this week...

    Get cracking Ardee! We got torched there last week, so will be good to see what you did to win. Maybe I should have just sent you a check instead of going? :nworthy::wave:

    I made a nice donation to the mortgage on the Wynn a couple of weeks ago. Glad you're getting them for us!

    Not quite sure why, but the cash on the bed amused me. Looks like it was fun!

    At Society Cafe, are the lollipop chicken wings anything special?

    A bed full of cash is my favorite thing in Vegas! That is what our last stay at the Wynn looked like too :beer:

    Looking forward to the whole report!

    The lollipop chicken wings are mighty tasty, JWBlue.
    I had them a few trips ago.
    Nice, spicy sauce and they are pulled down, away from one end of the bone (hence, the lollipop), so it's easier to eat and less messy than the usual chicken wing.

    If you go, also try the mac and cheese bites with the truffle dipping sauce.
    Both are lick-your-fingers good.

    Jilly, Jilly, Jilly. What can I say?

    Much thanks for the recommendation of trying a steak at Country Club.
    Melt-in-your mouth joy. :faint:
    I'll post hubster's review in our full trip report starting in the a.m.!

    Thanks again. :thumbsup:

    Did you get a chance to play the Aladdin slot machine?
    If so, how was it?
    I read some information and saw the demo and it looks like fun.

    BTW, I forward the image of the "winnings" to the IRS. :wink2:

    Hi there, LV_Bound.

    I'm in the process of posting our trip report now and it's located
    under the trip reports section.

    Yes, we did play Aladdin at Venetian and it was a lot of fun.

    Husband said he got a whole lot of nothing til I came by to join him.
    From then on, it was bonus time with lots of fun to be had!
    I ended up about 120.00 up from my original buy-in and hubster
    had about 80.00 or so.

    No worries on sending "the winnings" photo to the IRS.
    The obligatory tax forms were already signed. :cry:
    Had fun getting there, though. :wink2:

    We are scheduled for a Sept trip and will be looking to give this slot machine a try.


    I have not been fortunate enough to ever see one and am starting to believe they are a myth. :thumbsup:

    I don't think it matters what the combined total is as long as they were all under $1,200.00.

    What is the LOTR 3 Reel?

    I still think the original 3 Reel WOF (*see my Avatar) is my favorite game but I seem to spend
    a lot of time playing the Double 7's and it's variations... I seem to do quite well especially at the Wynn.

    Lord of the Rings 3-Reel

    Fun game with lots of bonuses. Some are useless, of course (Aragorn, I'm looking at you), but most have some good payouts.
