    Thanks NFC!

    I did NOT know about the American Sign Museum. That sounds like my mind of place!

    I also didn't know about the signature dishes at Piero's and Carbone so thank you for that info as well! This trip is definitely going to be heavy on wonderful Italian cooking as I also have two reservations for Sinatra and one for Costa di Mare. :love: :love: :love:

    I hear you @McCann. I thought about cancelling too. Ironically, one of the "safest" places in the country right now -- based on positivity rate -- is NYC. It was below 1% for many weeks and has creeped up. Schools closed for in person learning as the rate is now 3%, though Nevada's is many times higher, as is most of the rest of the country.

    I have mask and goggles or glasses on and will be as vigilant as one can be while in Vegas. Hope to see you and Luck if you two are up to it, but if not I 10000% understand. ❤ I think the patio outside at Wynn's Parasol Down is my new favorite and healthiest/safest gathering point. Looking forward to toasting with another VMBer there as well.

    Most important, wishing you safe travels and a fantastic trip!!

    Thanks @DaiLun!! That is the plan! Still thinking through how to play a lot of free play that my host got approved. I go back and forth between "washing" via 5 or 10 dollar single line Jacks or Better or playing my normal high volatility VP machines, UX, UX Bonus Deluxe or Hot Roll in TDB!

    Flowers, your amazing last report gave me so much entertainment that it actually relieved the monotony of every day being Blursday. I am certain this will provide the same tonic and look forward to the coming reports. Thank you for taking the time to do this for those of us who are not there.

    Thanks @VaDreamer and for your trip report! And my pleasure @SClinahoo.

    This old fashioned is starting to kick in. LOL. It is DELICIOUS as was the cheese danish. Wow.

    Stay safe and win big! Also, I see that you're switching to Encore mid-trip. My guess is that you're switching right when they open the resort back up for guests? Until the Encore opens up fully, it's Wynn for me as I like to check in early on Thursdays and leave late on Mondays.

    Headsets, that are lent during the flight, are new and improved and appear to be noise cancelling as well, plus there is a plug that enables you to use the headset to listen to your own music from your phone.

    Photos are having trouble loading. It may be my super packed phone with zero memory/storage left. Lol. Will post some more photos later.

    Scary that via Direct TV I can now watch QVC on the flight on the JB tv screens. Kinda scary! Lol.

    OMG! You are already going back to Vegas!!!! I'm so excited to follow along! It will keep me going until I get to town next Friday. I'm always jealous of how planned out your trips are - I need to stop procrastinating.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures of everything, but especially: the suites at Wynn and Encore, Piero's, and the comedy show! I'm so glad Wynncore is continuing to do some live shows - the last one was such a treat!

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you find one of those elusive 12x Royal Flushes on Ultimate X!
