    We walked around Venetian/Palazzo for a bit to check out the slots. The place was hopping and we weren’t getting a good vibe for playing, really.
    Luck and I tried to sit at a Munchkinland slot but 3 ladies decided to stand about 4 inches away from my chair and stare over my shoulder the whole time as I tried to play.
    Typically, I’d have had a bit of a polite enough interaction with these ladies to get them to back off... as I knew they were intent upon making me feel uncomfortable enough to leave so they could play.
    But *sigh*, I was trying to be in a people-friendly mood and decided to just go, it being Thanksgiving and all.
    I have to be nice to humanity once in a while. :noangel:
    Besides, it was one of those 3 machine carousel configurations and the one I was sitting at was by a busy walking path.
    Not my favorite way to enjoy slot playing so no biggie in the end.

    And now for something completely different... here’s a random bride from Wynn getting ready to have some photos taken.

    And the Parasol Down outside terrace by the Lake of Dreams was closed due to lots and lots of rain.
    We sat with @luck.ofthe.draw inside the bar area, so no problems for us.

    I played that buffalo reel machine in $1 denomination at Cosmo thinking I'll eventually hit something. Well I rolled $250 through it with no bonus and no memorable line hits. But I feel like it could be a really good one if only I would have hit anything. I think it was caed buffalo inferno? I liked it all except for that fact I couldnt buy a win in a little over 50 spins.

    We hung out in the suite for a while til it was time for @luck.ofthe.draw to make her way back toward her hotel.She needed to figure out whether she was flying out early that night or waiting (due to airport delays) til the next morning.
    Good times were had by all :headbang:...just chatting and catching up on life.

    I had to finish submitting some work so husband and I didn’t get down to the casino til later that evening and only played for a bit. He was having fun on the Willie Nelson slot and I found the Elvis Shake Rattlin’ Reels machine.
    Got some good hits out of it. Here’s some pics for my buddy @Burnsie :):

    Called it an early night for the slots and went back upstairs to check out the weather reports for travel back to SoCal in the morning.
    Cajon Pass was being cleared of lots of snow, apparently. We were hoping it might be plowed out and the various car stalls and fender benders towed by the time we reached that area.
    Headed home about 7:45am or so.
    Once we got to Joshua Tree/Halloran Summit area and past, we started to see some white stuff on the ground.
    This is the desert, folks. :haha:

    Traffic wasn’t bad until we hit some Friday Madness areas (or whatever it’s called).

    Got to the Cajon Pass area where it turned into a bit of a parking lot but at least the cars were slowly rolling along.

    This is close to where it took about 30-40 minutes when all cars converged and things moved slowly.
    I’d rather folks drive carefully and cautiously than act like crazies, so everybody can get to their destinations safely.

    Finally arrived home about an hour and a half later than usual but grateful we made it. :nworthy:

    Many thanks to everyone who took the time to read our report. :hmmm:


    Husband will come in a bit later to do his review of La Cave and any other musings.

    I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and best of luck on your next Vegas trip! :biker:

    Another uniquely ardee and hubster trip report, a delightful duo!

    And A+ for desert snow pics. @Richard Alpert kindly provides my snow fixes with fresh fallen snow, but one can never get too many snow pics. :love:
