    @MCann , how did your feet/legs feel when you got home?
    I kept it mostly to one property, but with the downtown part, I'm recovering from crippling calf pain right now...

    Sign I really am getting too old for this:
    Brought some epsom salts this time and a little foot soaking in the tub was pretty nice.
    Going on the must bring list.

    Thinking we might start staying in one place for trips, the moving is getting tiring..
    We were posted up in Cosmo for this whole stretch, so downtown was more a day trip, especially after seeing the condition of our room..

    It already has!! I started following yesterday while I was at the Buffalo airport from 5:20 am to 8:20 pm. Wishing you a great rest of your trip!!

    And I love all kinds of dining. I still think often about the warm and buttered banana nut bread at Omelet House. Funny thing is I rarely eat out at home and I live in a foodie capital!

    All I can think about is the dry cleaning bill if you dribbled some mustard or relish on that outfit while chowing down on a Casino Royale Hot Dog.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing, and this pic doesn't even show all the detail, she had fur accents at wrists and neck.
    She really pulled it off well, she was all in on the all white, and didn't even have a smudge on the butt, like I'd imagine you'd get sitting in a few seats downtown..
    I complimented her on it and we talked for a few minutes, I was :(when she left after getting a comped drink after I helped her kind of pretend to play.

    Oh man, the next song that pops up on the shuffle right now:


    Have you ever heard the back and forth of a clueless newb while a bartender tries to explain it's free if you play, but can't really tell them what to do, then tells them the drink is like $18?
    It would be a recurring theme, I'd move it along so I wouldn't have to hear the 5 minutes of confused back and forth questions....

    oh the main issue is they don't exactly state clearly that the first ones free, or explain exactly how much you need to play..

    to put it succintly,
    "Act Like You Know"

    P report.

    "P so classy";
    she had to educate a waitress at Cosmo on what Prosecco was when she ordered it, thoroughly,
    TSL (Today She Learned, also what Champagne is) thought she might want to know, got thanked profusely. Good thing to know for a Cosmo waitress.


    at home,
    checker accidentally hit a tax-exempt button checking out groceries, after everything was bagged,
    had to pull everything out and re-scan it, explained what had happened to both the checker,
    and the manager.. Being chill all the time,
    "no worries, been there, done that"

    :love:

    I love this woman.

    Nice!! Makes sense now. I'm a watch guy as well, and probably bought two thirds of them on Vegas trips. Definitely the place to wear them. And i agree with you, i have a bunch that just sit in the watch box and never get worn.

    Thanks for the explanation!!

    Feels good when good people win.



    (not just mine, any great win makes me feel good)
    (about 7 minutes in from meeting some new friends):
    BOOM!

    @Flowers , I knew you'd overcome!

    who's next?
    Dare I drop a cut for @Gaggles?

    (disclaimer,:eek: some may find offensive lyrics in this song, but I find it humorous, and it's a sick beat that you can dance to :wiggle::woot:)
    DO YOU WANT TO GO FASTER?!!

    Can you say I'm wrong if I say winning is a state of mind?

    If it makes you feel better, the entire lock/button panel came off our safe at Cosmo, exposing the mechanisms underneath, but it was on checkout day so I came up and put my cash in my pocket and drugs in my locking suitcase. I was downstairs slotting at the time and I guess Luck doesnt know her own strength.

    My feet were less blistered than my last 3 trips, but the pulled adductor muscles in my right leg hurt pretty bad. Felt nice and old :thumbsup:

    Haha - I ordered a mimosa, as is tradition, on my flight from DFW to LAS and the FA asked me what it was. I said Prosecco and OJ, and then he asked what prosecco was. And before I could answer he said "wait that's with the champagne?" - so apparently MCann so classy, too. But to be fair, he had a thick Mexican accent, and it may have been more of a language barrier thing. I dunno. He knew what the drink was but didnt know the words prosecco or mimosa.

    Just reading this tr now and the 2nd pic broke my heart as i felt myself leaving LV on the plane lol, wow.

    Sounds like you had some good runs at the crap tables at Cosmo. Should have read this report sooner as i was thinking i should have asked @luck.ofthe.draw to take some snaps of the Clover hats in the 1st flr gift shop at Cosmo but also could have asked you but too late. Maybe someone else will be around there although i do like trying them on to see which fits best.
     
    Maybe I'll be there again.....
