    I stayed in a cypress once, but only the 8th floor. Still a spectacular room. My only issue was finding it for the first time.
     
    Hope they don't check for gambling fever....I'll be off the charts!

    I cashed about $56 out of my $100 MyVegas freeplay. @luck.ofthe.draw is still playing. She used 60 of hers on the same game and was around $130 in winnings thanks to a whales of cash deluxe bonus giving her about a $100 line hit in the free spins. Go her!

    Mimosas with that view? I’d be content spending the day right there!

    I'm always curious how the machine comes up with the dollar amount rewarded with these bonuses.

    I'm not sure if you would know, either. I mean, I'm guessing it must have something to do with the three cardinal trapezoidal formations hereto made orientable in their diagram by connecting the various points H-I-G-K, P-E-G-Q and L-M-N-O...creating the geometric configurations which have no properties, but with location are equal to the described triangle C-A-B quintuplicated. Therefore, it is also the five triangles composing the aforementioned N-I-G-H. Each are equal to the triangle C-A-B in this geometric concept! Therefore, in a like manner, the geometric metaphors can derive a repeated vectoral sum.

    Good luck @MCann & @luck.ofthe.draw

    Well, you did come out of a stretch limo in a nice suit and tie in mid July (during a time when people don't often dress for the office) so I certainly am not surprised that those two valets were like two dogs struggling over one bone.

    I like the trip report. I was at Ceasars yesterday. It got somewhat embarrasing as the Wife was taking generous quantities of masks there and at Bellagio at the self-serve racks.

    @luck.ofthe.draw insisted on having free White Castle down at Casino Royale and running in the heat. I opted to stay behind and have this $14 italian sandwich from Gelato for free on express comps. So this is what a $14 Italian sandwich looks like, situated on the floor in front of the giant window. I pulled the chaise over to the window so I can enjoy the strip whilst I munch it down.

    Thank you for explaining your solution to this paltry geometric dilemma.

    Had some gelato out by the pool and it was delicious. Also, amazingly great value at $6.77 out the door for two using the MyVegas BOGO.

    And we caught the Bocelli Sarah Brightman bastardization of Con Te Partiro fountain show in its entirety from our room at 3pm. Maybe I'll post video of that one too. Even though I hate what they did to that version of the song, it's still one of the best shows due to what the fountains do with it, particularly toward the end.

    Heading off to Luxor to slum it with the peasants this evening. I'm wearing jeans. Like made of denim. But my shirt has Tigers made of f#;#king rhinestones, so there's that :D

    Dystopian robot eyeball wants to know if I've paid for the complimentary parking. Looks like it may be related to the doorman at Jabba the Hutt's place.

    If you have a free moment, could you elaborate some on what things were weird at Caesars?
    Crush of people trying to get their 5x?
    Haven't been in forever, hate navigating around there..

    5x at Caesars LV ended in June, so that wasnt going on. It was the crowd primarily that was off putting for me I guess. It was just weird. Staff too, was in some instances being very strict about social distancing and in other cases it seemed like they didnt care at all. I'm not the *most* freaked out person in the world, but I do think we should all be doing things that might help keep each other safe.

    For example, I saw housekeeping on multiple occasions stop guests in the hallways who werent wearing masks on their way to the elevator and tell them to go back to their room and get one or they would have someone bring them one if they claimed not to have one. That's fine.

    But I at the same time, I was playing a bank of 3 of the same slot. Middle one had chair removed. And right in front of security and other casino staff, this really sloppy lady, wearing her mask down around her chin, walked up and stood at the chairless machine next to me (the one two away was working and vacant) way too much in my bubble and stood there and played and none of the staff said or did shit. Then she lit up a cigarette she pretty much held about 4 inches from my face, and I had to cash out and leave. That's just one example, but it was jam packed FULL of people carrying themselves with that lack of manners and disrespect for others. Just something I've never experienced in numbers at Caesars Palace.

    Also, the damn scooter people. I'm not talking about the physically challenged. I'm talking about people renting the mobility scooters for convenience sake. I was chilling outside the main desk entrance to catch a no-mask breath, and a mid 20-something that seemed pretty clearly intoxicated, with a passenger wearing big fur boots and hanging on to his shoulders, were doing figure 8s around the columns just outside the door as fast as the thing could go, almost hit me at least 3 times and I had to jump out of the way. Again, nobody even attempted to do shit about it. It was jam packed full of shitty people.

    And on top of all that, we had cocktail servers coming up asking for ID from Luck when she wasn't ordering a drink, many times. Like, since when are they the casino ID security? I mean, ok if that's also their job now but I've literally never seen it before. Like, they interrupted her playing machines just to ask for ID. Shit was just weird overall and just full of bad vibes and people with no manners whatsoever, and it didnt have the aura of Caesars Palace that I love.
