    I was told there would be no math.

    Looking forward to the report. I'm thinking my next trip might be my last for a while as well.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Long time means not more than a half-year, right? Hopefully, you'll do really well and go back in a couple of months!

    Long time means no Vegas trips for a year or two.

    Heads up to those flying allegiant.

    Pretty tacky fee. Their app sucks too as it crashed for us while trying to checkin at the Airport.

    Should arrive in Vegas before 3pm.

    Made it to LV. Flight and checkin was uneventful.

    Did presidential limo for first time. Service and ride was exceptional.

    Gonna do some quick shopping with DW and then hit up bachannel.

    Some pics for viewing pleasure!

    Thanks for all the good luck comments. Just walked by Bally's and looks like their strip retail is nearing completion.[​IMG]

    Did bachannel buffet at Cp and sad to say the quality has deteriorated. 3rd visit in 2 years and noticeable differences for dinner:

    - they have snow crab legs but took out the king crab legs. (See plate)

    [​IMG]
    - oysters on the shell were really suspect
    - Prime rib and lamb chops are still on menu but the meat quality has declined (PR was tough, lamb chops was chewy)

    Overall 3.5/5 and doubt I'll return next trip. On side note when I left today at 8pm the wait from the ticket kiost machines was 50-70 mins.

    Was stuffed and took a walk to the bellagio to see the conservatory (under maintenance) then dropped some more money on DW for shopping. Lost more money at the shops then I did for the tables - will probably hit them soon!

    Did some late night gambling at PHO last night and dropped money pretty quick on bac and double deck.

    Couldn't hit any streaks at all.

    For today's agenda:
    - Continue Bob. Gonna hit up Paris for breakfast (always awesome).
    - Maybe join wife at the pool
    - Gonna do some slots and VP and see if we can get some quick hits.

    Stay tuned!

    I hadn't even looked at your tr yet cause it says 9/14 -9/18, must be a typo?

    Last night was pretty solid.

    - Finished off the buffet of buffets
    - Hit and run slot play. Hit a wicked winnings machine bonus for 60x base bet (slots is not my main game.
    - Rode the highroller (highly recommended)
    - Got a strawberry fudge sundae at girradellies at the link shops
    - Brought a gnome at kits on
    - Hit and run at PHO tables (no pic as phone ran out of battery) :(

    Looking forward to my move to Cosmo today!

    Recap from last night to moving to Cosmo today.

    - Hit PHO for a good bj hit and run (buy in was 1k see chip porn

    [​IMG]

    - Today was moving day to Cosmo. Booked a terrace studio with fountain view. Rates are insane because of fight weekend and Mexican independence day. Moved in and floored by the suite. Highly recommend to splurge

    - Visited SLS in the afternoon. Place looked great and all staff and dealers were friendly!

    [​IMG]

    - Dining we did:
    Earls Sandwhich for breakfast
    Lemongrass @ Aria for Thai
    Mon Ami Gabi @ Paris for the wonderful patio seating and seafood platter. Their crepes are to die for!
