    Enjoy the moment, the first night in town is always too exciting to bother with trivialities. CVS and the show tickets are not going anywhere, deal with it tomorrow.

    I think cvs will wait until morning. China Poblano is amazing as always. I had when pigs fly steamed pork buns and the 20 veg fried rice. Omg!so good!
    But there will be plenty for breakfast. I may need to go back to vp after this. Slots got mean.
    And who was it that recommended drip drops? @Vegasworm? I got some and will be using it shortly!

    Oh and the lady next to me at the bar got the golden pigs so we swapped on. Delicious as well!

    Dinner was awesome! The lady next to me at the bar had a couple golden pigs left and asked if I wanted to take them. Heck ya! I am stuffed and have food for lunch or dinner tomorrow. I am now sitting on the terrace with a water and drip drop. It's oy 730 here and I cannot call it yet. But what to do? It's or vp? Vp was nicer so I may go back there.

    But isn't this the best view!

    Fountain show should start soon, I'll watch that and head back down.

    That drip drop saved my butt last trip. I’d have a cocktail and have the CW bring one of those little waters also. Drink the cocktail, then drink the water with some drip drop. Never got drunk (tipsy,yes) and NO hangover. Stuff is magical.

    You know things have taken a turn for the worse when I resort to single line BP. Nothing is paying anymore. Ugh.

    I think I'm done for tonight. Nothing was hitting. Didn't want to throw anymore money at it. I'm back on the terrace with another drip drop. Tomorrow is a new day!

    Good night Vegas!

    Thanks! First days never do me well. But if only I could learn to stop when I'm up. But that's no fun! :whistle:

    Good morning Vegas! Darn east coast time. I woke up at 630 and that was it. Beautiful morning though. I think coffee on the terrace is a must!
    20190926_062647.jpg

    I realize I forgot room pics. I'll do that later, but I'm guessing everyone has seen pics of the Cosmo studio room.

    The plan today is to win back a bit of money. Vp started out so good yesterday but the slots were rough. No bonus at all on moolah. The link games, I tried most all. I think I had one bonus. Haven't decided where to start today.

    Is there anything better in Vegas than sitting on the terrace in the morning with a cup of coffee?
    20190926_074305.jpg

    Well, okay, I could think of a few things. But still! :p:wave:

    I am hitting China Poblano for the first time in a couple of weeks with @wanker751 and I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to it. Which scares me a bit because I am not a Chinese food guy AT ALL. But dammit if there aren’t about 5 things I’ve got my taste buds riled up for. :thumbsup:

    They historically have been one of my worst days too. Last trip wasn't an exception to that. And your biggest hit came right away last night! How could you stop there??? Haha
