    AUG 4 - 12.

    Pushed two trips back (would've returned this morning from the first & decided to push my latter June effort to this one). Unless I'm jumped and severely beaten by a gang of angry youth, this trip will happen.

    I could get jumped, actually. The youth is very angry missing their Proms & not being allowed to go bowling, n'shit.

    8/4 - 8/8 @ El Cortez (Design A Suite)

    8/8 - 8/12 @ Cosmopolitan (1BR Terrace)

    I actually would've preferred a 1 BR Pent at Vdara or a Corner Suite at Aria, but I can't guarantee those properties will be open (I'm sure Vdara won't, anyway).

    Came down to a Corner 1 BR at Trump or the 1 BR at Cosmo and I decided to give The Cozz one more shot due to location & the whole reefer smoking balcony option.

    Six months in between trips. Hasn't happened since I was a little weasel college kid 25 years ago.

    Completely unacceptable.

    Time to go make some frozen daiquiris. Enjoy your weekend, amigo/a's!

    S'berry all the way.

    I may try a pineapple. but I'll need to be lit to the gills to drink 50 ounces of that...which shouldn't be too difficult to accomplish tonight, tomorrow and/or (probably) Sunday.

    I've rearranged my visit to one sleepover at Paris, going to MAG, Walgreens, then crossing the street to Cosmopolitan. I want to do a smash and grab, better than nothing in my book. I am cashing in my one free night and doing the 2 nights with $50 pool credit. I told my friends they can show up, have the bed, and I will listen to weird podcasts and sleep on the couch or terrace if they wanna show. I gotta have a summertime Vegas trip on the books!

    Finally final. If this doesn't happen then I'm not going. 4 nights, 8/10 - 8/14, all at Cosmo. I will probably only leave the resort 2 times: one for an Aria and NYNY visit, and another to leave for home. Can't wait!

    If I don't cancel, we'll be at Cosmo on the 8th too; let's get a socially distanced drink.

    It's a date for sure.

    I may not end up staying at Cosmo. I've triple booked the second half of this trip (Cosmo, Wynn & Mandalay).

    If the Mandalay opens up by then, I would probably go with them because I found a rather obnoxious rate for a specific room type (in a good way).

    I'd love to stumble down to Cosmo and buy a couple of rounds and meet, regardless.

    Original June 5-9 trip is now 7/31 - 8/3. Hopefully it happens as I’m itching for Vegas.

    We obviously could’ve gone for our original dates, but by the time we realized it was a go we had called it off and would not have been able to get the time off.

    Will be there Aug 28-31 staying at the Elco. Hopefully things open up more on Fremont since we were there for St Patty's Day this year and had to leave early with things being shut down.

    August 20th-24th. Flying solo for this trip. Celebrating both my birthday and getting my pre-baby body back with hard work and self-discipline (FWIW,I don't recommend going hard-core on dieting during an international pandemic). It will be the first time I am staying away overnight from my kiddos, who are 3 and almost 2. Staying at Paris. Will be weird to be there by myself but also exhilarating.
