    Oh Flowers, I am so glad to see you’re back in your happy place! You’re trips are so inspiring, and make me want to go out of my comfort zone. I will be at the Palazzo tomorrow for three nights, and already looking to change up some of my planned meals. Here’s hoping we both get lots of hand pays and have successful trips!

    I just started reading this TR, and realized @Flowers trip lasts exactly 1/3 of the way until our next trip, wherever that takes us. So we can follow this report and when it's done, we'll only have a little over a month left to go!

    Loving it so far @Flowers - as usual. Thanks for bringing us along as always, and I know I will learn something from this TR. And we will stay at Wynn or Encore eventually, probably this year, maybe in July who knows!
     
    It's been too long!

    Based on her modeling work for the front page of the website, yes, i think Wynn is very happy with her and will feature her in an upcoming issue.

    Good evening!

    So let me start with the bad news first.
    I GOT MY ASS HANDED TO ME AGAIN TODAY. WOW. I can't remember the last time I got a beat down like this two days in a row. I was playing fifty cent and dollar denom on UX TDB and DDB. I know, I should have switched to something else.
    Anywho, not one handpay.
    I then switch to ten play quarters and in I think 5 hands I got deal quads 10s.

    20210424_164253.jpg

    $1875. Glad I got it rather than not but between yesterday and today this barely made a dent in my losses. UGH.
    If big beatdowns early on mean ultimately spectacular gambling trips this should indeed be a spectacular trip!!

    Now, for the good, really great, news.

    My spa treatments -- massage by Nicole and hydra facial by Traci -- were once again just extraordinary. And Nicole provided me again with a another care package of Mike's bath salts. I will use these during my stay. Can't wait.

    20210424_172042.jpg

    And now great news for everyone!! I inquired as to when the water amenities in the Encore and Wynn spas would reopen and the check in desk told me that they will DEFINITELY open in MAY!! They aren't sure exactly when as they need a week or two to finalize the health and safety protocols. Offline I hear it COULD be May 1st but my sense is more time may be needed though I am thinking definitely by Mother's Day, which is Sunday May 9th.
    Based on the substance and positive tone of the conversation, I have a high level of confidence that when I return to the spa for my second massage and facial two weeks from today that I will be able to enjoy the spa pools and steam room. Not yet in blood but I feel like that will be the case and, per the check in desk, some time in May for sure!!! :woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

    The beatdown only ended because it was 5 pm and I had a 6 pm reservation at CUT, I still had my "spa" clothes on with no makeup and I also needed to check into the Palazzo, as I had food credit, before heading to dinner.

    Headed back to the room, got dressed for the evening, etc. and then headed down to Tableau to check out the temporary Chairman/Black Card lounge, which is open Fridays and Saturdays from 4:30 to 7 pm. Wynncore was experimenting with the idea during April and I got the sense it might NOT become permanent.

    I was going to meet my host for a drink there but really just had time to check it out. There was a nice sign at the door and then a greeter with a machine in which your card is swiped though I knew the person and she greeted me by name even before I gave her my card.

    At this point it is 5:55 pm so I just took a pic of the drink menu, though apparently you can order pretty much whatever you want. Drinks are served with chips, nuts, etc. and there were candles on the tables both inside Tableau and out on the patio. There were maybe 6 or 7 couples or groups of people at most in the lounge. The greeter told me she wasn't sure it would continue as not a lot of guests came by but I think it is a great idea; maybe they can just pick a slightly smaller venue.

    Here are a few pics.

    Does the Chairman's Club card contain any actual 24k gold?

    thank you so much. Would be great to know. Planning on doing similar to you on our next trip at the end of June and making the first full day a Spa/relaxation day but our first full day will be a Wednesday.

    Finishing up my meal at CUT, which was excellent slthough the Kung Pao Cauliflower dish, which is new, was a little salty.

    I had the same 12-year smoked Old Fashioned like I have had every meal here. Started with the butter lettuce salad and had the Snake River Farms filet mignon with the house steak sauce, the cauliflower and some wonderfully sauteed spinach that was perfectly seasoned.
