    G-d I’m gonna have to swing by Camelot Steakhouse one of these days - could likely get a soup-to-nuts meal for the price of a main course at more prestigious steakhouses, especially with a MyVEGAS coupon :thumbsup: lol the food pr0n gets me every time :haha:

    Wow. This is epic for a variety of reasons. Thanks for all the pictures. Eataly looks great, I’ve read some stuff where people have said it’s “meh”. May need to check it out in April.

    Enjoy the rest of the trip!

    Geez I'm overwhelmed just reading the TR; can't imagine being there that long. I'll stick by my early comment about needing a 12 step program.....

    Backstage deli often gets way underrated. Decent eats, cheap and 24/7. They have some great hangover food there.

    Loving the pics. Keep em coming.

    Ok yesterday! Where am I...

    Bit of a polava with the room as we go down to reverify keys and am told we need to swap rooms, even though the girl at first check in said she would combine the two reservations in mine and Hughs name. Meh. Did it. No biggie but will mention it at check out.

    Anyway... more MyVegas Rewarda yayyy! Haha. I was lucky enough to snag the 2 free lunch buffet at aria thats quite hard to get. So thats lunch sorted!

    Then back at Luxor I had a couple of hits but spent too much on the Wild Chuco machine chasing bonuses.

    Late night snacks came from Backstage Delhi along with a celebrity spotting!!!

    20191030_014838.jpg

    Not sure if anyone watches Dog the Bounty Hunter?

    His son Leland Champan sat on the table next to us. Hugh was very excited but obviously didnt want to bother him so just shook his hand and left him to his late night snacking too.

    I think the word "celebrity" is used way too loosely these days.

    If you go back to Aria, I know where some 7/5 Bonus at quarters is. You don't have to settle for 6/5!

    Yeah Row 802/804 by the MLife Desk. Or any STP unit at Aria for that matter. I think they all have 7/5 Bonus for quarters+ @WelshBlonde! Also has 8/6 Boner Deluxe, which is about 0.5% higher payback.

    Thank you Booker was great meeting you too!

    So yesterday we get up early and have a Luxor 241 buffet. It was ok, maybe slightly better than PH dare I say? Theres more selection atleast but quality is similar.

    Anywho, glad i tried it.

    No pics sorry! You arent missing anything lol.

    After a quick breakfast I mentioned the issues we had with combining the room, clerk gives me $25 off the bill.

    Off we go back to PH! The Final change of the trip! Wheeeeee!

    Same style room as last time so didnt get any new photos. Im a happy bunny in this place just love the vibe.

    Ok! Needed to get ready quickly as going to meet some epic VMBers later!

    20191030_132603.jpg

    This was nice while I waited for my hair appointment!

    Hair on point again even if I do say so myself. Ugh I want to pack the stylist up and take her home with me!!!!

    Screenshot_20191030-225254_Gallery.jpg

    Ok! Taxi to Plaza.....

    Met some lovely folk! Honestly so nice!!! I finally met Pebbles and husband, Booker, saw Bubbakitty and wife and oghuman and more! Was lots of fun. Hugh also enjoyed!

    We spent a few hours there then hop skipped and jumped back as I have dinner booked at Strip House in PH!!!!!! GAAHHHHH so excited!

    And of course this bad boy to take away! (And 24 hours later ive only eaten 1/4 of lol)

    20191031_174907.jpg



    Honestly? The best steak of my life. Seriously. Best. Ever.

    I think everyone who enjoys steak should try this place. The meat is tender, cooked perfectly, my rib eye had the right amount of fat and it was all melty good. The way they cook all steaks with a pepper char is wonderfull.

    Loved it.

    If it wasnt so pricey I would go back again before I go home... maybe I can win some steak money? Lol.
