    My Trip Report

    My July 8 trip to Nomad did not happen because of outrageous airfare... I had a business trip to Fresno today... with $69 flights, who can say no? So Cosmopolitan here I come.

    Fresno is a little airport. Empty. TSA pre not fully open, but there was zero line. I had to remove electronics due to scanner settings. But kept shoes on, etc.

    Flight delayed ... just 30 min.

    No plans, hoping for a minimalist trip. Social media full of warnings about gas shortages, line shortages and Housekeeping, even pool chemicals shortages. Will report.

    One negative... I hate that the Fresno airport code is FAT.

    Arrived only 20 min late. But had an issue with my room. Sold out, told I got last room in tower. Lowest floor. But when I got in, ADA room.. odd setup.. missing items, likely for access. But bed was very low, mushy soft, and creaked with every touch. Loudly! I would not have been able to sleep.

    I channeled ugly American in Europe. Multiple calls, etc. They finally moved me.

    Busy. Having a tekka... was gonna grab holsteins but its closed.

    Hardly any guests masked. Casino floor staff masked. Registration staff... none. Block 16 staff... 50-50

    Positive spin??? Closer to everything……

    Hopefully the gambling gods recognize the error and turn that frown upside down!!!

    The airport was named Fresno Air Terminal (FAT). It was renamed Fresno Yosemite International in the 90s. We petitioned the FAA to change the designation to FYI, but the change was denied. So FAT we remain.

    Room issues right when you get in are the worst! Glad you were able to get moved, but such a waste of time you could have spent playing/drinking/dining/shopping.

    Good luck, I’ll be following!

    So far, boring trip. Hoping today is more interesting.

    I'll also note that, being on the edge of the monsoon weather pattern over AZ and southwest... it's hot here! 90° and even a little humid at 8am is hot.

    Early breakfast. Place is empty. Half off. Where can you get breakfast in LV for $20 with this variety?

    Lunch food is out. I'm determined to eat lighter (not light) breakfast only

    Do you get half off as a solo diner using the 2-for-1 deal? Or did you have a half-off coupon?

    Round 2... sticking with breakfast theme. 16268838711448076932518411957682.jpg

    There are some lunch items here that look good. Riffs on stuff usually here... nothing brand new "wow, never saw that here before"

    Glad I stuck to breakfast. Full, but not that "OMG I ate so much at the buffet" that induces food coma. I'm adding this to my Cosmopolitan list of breakfast options.

    Upon arrival, host said "Las Vegas slept-in today" and explained they get busy 10:30. Now, 945, busier but 80% tables still empty.

    @ReTriggerMe do you need a res for early breakfast? What time do they open tues/wed/thurs? What Identity level to get the 2/1? I usually only do buffets for breakfast...for $20 I'd do that...I think I have paid close to that for a large coffee, yogurt and pastry in the past.

    edit:
    Just answered all my own questions
