    Also, I just want to thank our cabbie for rarely slowing down below 55mph on all these 35mph roads lol

    Nobody working the front door at Sahara could get you a cab? That’s not good.

    No monorail? And that steak looked damn good. And did you keep/steal that shoe?

    Omg being on the far west end of the Octavius tower actually paid off tonight. We can see the gazillions of fireworks going off across the valley to the northwest right here from the room. So awesome!

    That meal looked amazing. Bummer on the cab but glad it worked out. I usually don't rent cars in Vegas but glad I booked one for my upcoming trip. The only problem is that I don't drink and drive and I'll be solo for most of the trip so I'll still need a cab or Lyft after a big meal with alcohol downtown (or at Sahara!) but for quick runs here and there it sounds like a car rental will be the move.

    Correct. There was nobody working the front door at Sahara. We found a suit in the casino and asked. He said go out front that's where cabs come but you'll have to call one because they arent coming here right now.

    Yes! To all of that! We discussed driving, and decided it would be more convenient to be dropped off and picked up right at the main valet and minimal walking etc, plus eating 64,000 calories and having bubbly adult beverages, it seemed like a good idea at the time, not driving.

    The Maverick helicopter tours are flying by us every several seconds. The people who booked those between 9 and 10pm on July 4th are champions!

    Same here from Cosmo. I’m impressed on the cash outlay for fireworks.

    Yah, hard to beat the view from a Cosmo balcony on a high floor. We're just kind of stoked because if we'd been in a more convenient room here we wouldnt be able to see anything but the Palace tower or Bellagio's rear end!

    Do you have any tips on how to not die in the desert heat in that outfit? I feel like you know stuff.

    Nothing spectacular, but we used my Diamond+ free drinks at Vista Lounge and had some fabulous white Russians with real brand name liquor, played a couple hours of slots and I did a hit and run on some high limit for several hundred bucks. Went up and down by a few hundred bucks. Ended the session with a 2 spin bonus hit on Montr Carlo and cashed a couple hundred bucks on that one, think I ended up about 100 bucks in the hole on the night. Good times were had. Drinks were drinken. People were watched. Way different crowd than I'm used to at Caesars Palace, and I'm not sure if it's due to plague weirdness or moving other properties here or what, but... it's been different.
