I'm posting this from my room at Aria... So far, I've been in town since about 6 p.m. on Sunday and haven't gotten one drink while gambling. There was one offer while in TI, when I had to drive in a few minutes, but otherwise, not a single, "COCKTAILS!" heard in a casino on the Strip. I've played in Palazzo, Aria, Monte Carlo, Bellagio and even a rather long stretch in Excalibur. If it wasn't for a trip to Lee's Discount Liquor, I would be raiding the minibar as I type. Can't wait for the second part of the trip, with off-strip and downtown casinos where they still understand why people visit casinos.
