    I never stayed at the mirage. This made me want to see more and I checked out a walk around video of the pool. Very Nice! Good luck on your (to put in a bigger perspective and big WOW) as long as a month of February adventure! :)

    I'm in Nottingham so similar distances!

    I'll be driving so Heathrow is definitely easier. Have two young kids so a night at Gatwick would equal one less night in Vegas!

    Easier to get to Heathrow from St Pancras too as its on the tube line, plus with the later flight times you probably don't need to stop over night?

    Yep, driving home safely is the problem due to lack of sleep! It’s a case of see how it goes - direct Manchester flights are much easier but they stop in the winter sadly

    Well I'm up! 7am this time. Not TOO bad but I didn't go to bed till 2 am... oops lol.

    I had a wonderful time seeing Smerrian and I also had another friend join us for drinks so it was a catch up all round!

    We started off in Rhumbar, and then went on to Carnival Court, and finally back to Mirage for some VP!

    These are the only pictures I have from last night haha:

    However, I blew through about $400 yesterday with no wins to bring back to the room. So I'm still ahead for the trip, just. Hoping today is a little more lucky!

    Gonna try wake myself up, and get some food, as I didnt end up eating last night as having far too much fun!

    Great seeing you and Heff yesterday. I love how you do holiday just pouring your attention over those specialty drink menus having one rave drink after another. I just stick to simple stuff but it's fun to see you enjoying them so much.

    Up and at em' early so decided to go for pantry breakfast. Again, using a $15 off $40 MyVegas reward.

    It was good, coffee and water allready on the table, food was decent. I probably wouldn't rush back but its convienient and cheap with the reward.

    20191010_080440.jpg

    Corned beef hash for me.
    20191010_082343.jpg

    AND you'll all be pleased to hear, I asked for butter and I got something decent!!! Yay! My little british heart was filled with joy...
    20191010_082529.jpg

    Ok, played some VP, endes up down overall.
    20191010_085613.jpg

    But then tried Top Dollar!

    20191010_090918.jpg

    The pics make it seem like I won lots but it was about $45 and then $35, BUT it brought me back up to even for today and thats nearly a win in my eyes!

    Now im waiting for Hugh to go sort the room keys out and then its pool time again... maybe with significantly less alcohol today... :snore:

    I agree with you on Pantry - I've used the MyVegas reward for a late-night snack, and especially if it's 2 people eating, it's not a bad deal at all!

    Yaaaay butterrrr.

    The result?
