    Wow $150 for hangover cure seems steep.

    Ill stick to either painkilllers and lots of water or more booze. Haha.

    Morning lovely people!

    Today I'm not sure what I want to do. I had pool day and myvegas meet up on my itineray however not sure I'm feeling either. May go get some breakfast, do a little shopping in the forum shops and see where the mood takes me later!

    Does anyone know if you can charge to your room in the forum shops?

    Forecast said cloudy but its beautiful out!

    You can't room charge from the forum shops I'm afraid!

    I love Bachannel, great photos! It looked super quiet though!

    Ok thanks for the info :)

    Yea started off busy ish was about 8:30pm we arrived. Then just got quieter.

    Good start to the morning!
    Had a feeling about a machine so jumped on it prior to breakfast....

    Now we really want Bachannal again, is that bad? Should we be trying different things? But it was so good!

    Lets go see what they do for brunch :love:

    WelshBlonde, I am enjoying your report. I love your Palace Tower room. I also love your food photos. Good luck in the casinos. Get the Royal!

    Ugh, lots of full houses but no more 4oak.

    Im going to try my luck asking if they can comp anything off my bill in the morning before check out. Not sure how much chance there is as I'm on a comp stay anyway but worth a try huh?

    Now as I feel 80 years old I may have a lil naptime.

    See you all on the other side! (Of the nap, nothing creepy)

    Great report so far. The amount of slot play will be key for back end comps, VP won't give you much back end sadly. Well worth asking though!

    CP is tougher on comps than most CET properties. Last time I stayed there, I did $10k coin in per day on VP, plus some tables here and there, and didn't get anything off my bill. I was in Augustus though, which I'm guessing has a higher comp rate than Palace.

    But as you pointed out, it never hurts to ask...

    I stayed at CP for 5 nights comped last month. Was supposed to have a palace tower room, but used the $20 trick to get into the Augustus Fountain view. Because of all that I didn't even ask for anything on the back end, since I played mostly VP. So I would be very interested to know how it worked out for you, that is if you don't mind sharing that info!

    That from a woman that made the lights flicker ever so slightly at the Main Street station while hitting all kinds of good booze. “I know Tito personally” she told Oleg. Hell he fell for it but damn!!

    Knowing me would probably hurt. I’m the lowest of the low rollers. I thought you knew that @bubbakitty

    Now if Tony wasn’t beside me, who knows what a degenerate I’d turn out to be.

    Doesn’t sound like someone making the meet up as @Lady Fortuna orchestrated. You’re going to miss the scooter races for sure!! But if you missed them I probably will too...yikes!! :biker:
