    My Trip Report

    Good morning everyone. It is 6:53 am EST and the wife and I are lounging in terminal c in philly airport waiting for our flight. This will be our third trip to Vegas, and this will be my first attempt at a trip report. I will do my best to keep it up to date with pictures and whatnot, but as Mike Tyson once said, everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth .

    We are staying at the cosmopolitan for our whole trip. We have stayed here for every trip and really like the place. We have a terrace one bedroom booked but I will see if the $20 trick will work for a upgrade.

    During this trip we will be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary, as well as my birthday.

    More to come later.

    Hopefully you mentioned that it is your anniversary and birthday trip. usually, the check in staff will do a little extra to make it special. Unless you get the really new check in staff. then they are too afraid to do anything that goes against protocols.

    Tried the $20 trick at front desk. They had a wraparound suite avail for an extra $175 a night. No thanks. But they did put us on the 58th floor overlooking the strip. I mentioned that it was our anniversary and my birthday but it did not seem to help. Oh well.

    Again I apologize for not responding to individual replies. Still figuring this all out. Bought in for $200 at a $10 Craps table and walked away with $500. Forgot the obligatory chip porn shot sorry

    Awesome - have fun! If you get a chance, snap a pic of the cabanas (and proximity to the pool) at boulevard : ) Thinking of getting one out there in June, but our first (only) trip to Cosmo was Feb, and we didn't even so much as glance at the pools, haha. Good luck!!!
