    Breanna, you were my Cosmo muse - the reason I even considered staying there. I would play there all the time, but never stayed - until a couple years ago so I use the comp nights when I can!! I so enjoy the property, staying and playing.

    Have a wonderful trip, a Merry Christmas and win LOTS!!!

    Our friends arrive today around noon and we will be celebrating R’s 60th!

    Spent last night slotting at Cosmo. Hubby was in bed early (Vegas is tiring, or perhaps Jack and coke is) [​IMG]but got up to go to The Henry with me in the wee hours. Met a really fun lady at 3 reel Wonka who gifted me a Christmas light necklace she was wearing that I admired. She is a local and she and her husband were having a mini 2 night staycation at Cosmo.

    Ended the day down $400 so calling that money well spent in entertainment value.

    I will be wearing this necklace for the rest of the trip, so sweet!

    Hey @breanna61 there is nothing better than chowing down in the middle of the night at the The Henry followed by some Wonka. Sounds like a mighty fine Vegas trip. Love the shoes too,:confused:

    I left this TITO in the machine last night, washroom break. :(

    When I went back, my card was there but the TITO was gone. I’m a dumb ass!

    I hope whoever got it needed it.

    Man, I’d love to hear some of these horror stories. Especially written in Geno’s descriptive writing.
    I know a thread like that probably wouldn’t last that long. I bet I’d be funny. Or sad.

    So sorry this happened. There are good people out there that sometimes do desperate things in desperate times. Your hope that that person truly needed it shows your kind spirit and good heart.

    And no, you are not a dumb ass. Good, trusting people will do what you did every now and then.

    Thank you for sharing your Christmas trip with us! Merry Christmas and enjoy the rest of your trip!

    Been there, done that. I was so mad, mostly at myself for being an idiot, but also just mad in general that so many people are dishonest.
    Here is wishing bad karma for them, and great karma for you!!

    Oh, and that pic of the grilled cheese, tomato soup! Yum! I so wanted to try that when I was at Cosmo last week. But I planned to go for lunch, and they were closed. Only open from around 1 AM (I think) and close at 11 AM. I don't remember that from my last trip. Oh well, next trip!

    Enjoy the rest of your time!

    I’ve failed miserably at updating :(

    We celebrated R’s birthday at Scarpetta; delicious as usual. Their tomato basil spaghetti is always one of my favs. The asparagus is amazing too.

    Christmas Eve we had lunch at Top of the World. It was very good!

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Christmas dinner was at Cornerstone in the Gold Coast. We all had the traditional turkey dinner and it was excellent!![​IMG]

    No hand pays :(

    Tapatalk just said I was at my picture limit. Rat bastards.

    Even after meeting George for just a while, I feel like we're old friends @breanna61. Which means I feel like I know that look on his face. :haha:
    So happy you're both having a wonderful Christmas trip. :santa:
