    Ok so the night took us on an adventure afterall!

    First we has gioardanos. If i'm honest, not as good as I remembered but still nice AND my +1 brought it back with a rose for moi... awww.

    Then Vegasnut reminded me that I should get my butt out of my room and we met him for my first try at craps!!! I lost it all in about 10 mins haha. Oh well! Fun to try.

    After craps I wanted to play something that I understood and tried my luck at VP in the high limits! With Vegasnut there as my good luck charm I turned my last $100 of the day into $300. Hurrah! I also snuck in again afterwards and won another $100 so this was a good day.

    Lastly Vegasnut and my +1 have gone on an adventure. I have come back to the room. Wonder what time and in what state my +1 will return haha :drunk:

    Morning!! Day 3 in Vegas!!

    My +1 returned about 3:30am. He said vegasnut looked after him well apart from a 80 year old hooker trying to go home with him when he was vaping hahaha.

    Todays plans, daybed at the pool! Its only $100 today which is awesome and the snackus maximus place is closed so we can bring in our own food yay! Should save some $$! Think its like $50 for a hotdog in there....

    +1 has gone on a hangover cure hunt.... I have a feeling it will be greasy.

    Nice looking drink round the pool!

    Out of interest, how are you Diamond if your play is so low? Even 21 days x 625 is only 13125 tier points.

    Ah I forgot that existed. I've always earned Diamond through play so never paid much attention to it. Good idea though when you have such long stays, as the resort fee savings are immense. I guess no Diamond lounge access though with the 25k point rule?

    Ok pool time done!!

    Tempted to nap, then we had planned using a myvegas reward for bellagio but im guessing that triggers a gaming day?

    Might swap that and go with Bachannal here a CP. I keep hearing its one, if not, the, best buffet in Vegas. Hope thats true for $55 each lol :blink:

    Smart move. Apollo is my favorite. Quieter and tucked in the corner. I usually try to snag a lounger to the right of the cabana in your pic for earlier sun.

    Fantastic report. Anticipating much more to come!
