    You're gonna be there for 10 days.

    A viable strategy might be:

    Divide the FP by 10, and start the day doing cash conversion with FP.
     
    Last trip of the year. Closing out at "poor Man's Circa"
    Happy Birthday to me!!! Food folks, and fun!!

    Holy crap that breakfast!!

    One of these days I gotta go back and visit NYC. So sorry that TakRoom at Hudson Yards closed before I could experience it....there is so much good food out there. Perhaps in 2021 I can take my first Mint flight! :haha:

    Safe travels @Flowers and hopefully will see you later next week! :D

    My guess is I just had one of the best breakfasts I will have during this trip, and it was a meal on an airplane....

    The sea salt is in a metal.container. I am packing these to go!! Love little things like that. It will go at some point I am sure with something I'll have in my room over the next 10 days.

    Watching a neat documentary about the history of sound in movies. Fascinating.


    And this food, the old fashioned and little sleep just caught up with me. I think I am going to take a nap. :)

    That breakfast is off the chart, glad it was as good as it looked! JetBlue does not offer MINT service from my home airport (in fact they don't even offer flights to LAS) so I had never heard of it until I started reading your trip reports. But it blows other domestic First Class that I have flown right out of the water. Enjoy your trip, I will be following since I love the way you do Vegas. Be safe!

    I am so jelly about your JetBlue Mint experience. That breakfast looks so delish. You really know how to do Vegas, including getting there. Can't believe that you have so many things lined up. I can barely get myself packed. Good luck to you today.

    It's wonderful having another Flowers TR on the board. Your last visit was shared with all of us in a spectacular way. Best of luck to you on this trip, and enjoy the ambiance, meals, company and weather. Stay safe.

    Enjoy your trip! Also, at your dinner at Carbone, when they recommend the Spicy Vodka Sauce Rigatoni they are not steering you wrong. It is one of the best tasting things I’ve ever eaten.

    Landed!! Landed some time ago actually but just now in the car en route to WYNN (for the first time in maybe a decade!). I had gotten distracted with a slew of work emails when I got off the plane (all good fortunately) and got on the wrong tram...... to the wrong terminal ..... so got on a shuttle to go to Terminal 3. Wynn transportation and the driver had both called looking for me so that made me feel good in a weird way. Lol. It was embarrassing but we all joked about it.

    Okay, no more random dumb stuff this trip. Lol.

    Rest of the flight was great. I slept HARD, I mean HARD, for a solid hour+. And I drank lots of water, which is good to do generally on a long flight headed to the desert, but especially before you are about to get a heavy duty massage.
