    Had been waiting for months to see if you did another trip report for this trip and
    I have followed it every day so far it’s hard to believe it’s almost over. Finally tally on all the trip to follow I hope.

    Awww guys thank you for the lovely comments!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed haha. I love revisiting my last TR as it serves as a lovely way to remember and having you guys come along with me is an added bonus!!!

    Haha no time!! But good idea!

    No didnt get offered or see any coupons but they may be there :) hope you find them!!!

    We had a lovely meal at BLT this evening! And best of all we got $100 off!!

    Cocktail to start, First Lady. Cherry ciroc vodka based. Was lovely.

    We started off with the complimentary famous cheese popovers, I wasnt too amazed by these. Maybe thats just me?

    I went for the bone in ribeye and +1 had the filet. We also shared mac & cheese and hen of the woods mushrooms.

    The sides were wonderfull and the rib eye was huge!! Very nice flavor but maybe a little too charred on some edges.

    I couldn't help compare it to strip house. Service wise, BLT wins, they were fantastic. Ambiance and food wise - Striphouse wins!

    They even gave us a little complimentary dessert, brownies. These were lovely.

    Ok a few drinks at the bar in ballys! Server, Cody? I think that was his name. Young guy. He was fab! Tried the lobby coffee.... not for the faint hearted!

    I was thinking that earlier today - I swear I am at least as bummed as they probably are that he vacation has come to an end! :D I've really enjoyed following along with this TR.

    WB, I've been following along in person when you first arrived and following along online when I returned home. What a fantastic trip you've had! Wishing you safe travels home and may all of your Vegas adventures be as wonderful. (sans missing meds). Maybe we'll coincide dates again in the future...you at EVE, me at G2E.
