    We did a $40 low limit group pull at Wynn. Cashed out 12 cents. Just got home to Caesars. But we did get one very mediocre Dancing Drums Explosion free spin bonus. A good time was had by all participants. And we only lost $20 each.

    @luck.ofthe.draw you look BEAUTIFUL! Very Rita Hayworth to @MCann 's Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin old world elegance. LOVE it. And my favorite? Rita Hayworth with a HUGE hunking piece of meat, but held oh-so delicately. And I am LOVING the Fred Flintstone ribeye. You could be a picture on a Cosmo brochure!

    Love the report MCannn.... but then I always love your reports. Thank you both for sharing, and letting us get our Vegas trip through your foodie and libations' adventure.... Have a BLAST!

    Played at Harrah's for a while this morning because they had the closest comp red bull to Octavius tower. Still smells but not nearly as bad, in my opinion.

    1 craps table running, $15 between 7 and 8 AM.

    Headed over to Cosmo soon for wicked Spoon and free play.

    Low rolled a while at Harrahs and $100 lasted a decently long time, left with $33.

    They were on par with MGM, if not better, at being cautious and enforcing rules. CET has been much more strict these last couple of days than it sounds like they have been the first couple weeks.

    Pro tip, diamond checkin didnt give me any waters at checkin. I just stopped by this morning to ask for some and was told they are not giving them out now. I guess that's only safe if it comes from a CW?!?

    Another pro tip: were on 65 in Octavius. The ice machine is off but had an out of order sticker on it. Just checked and 64 is up and running, so apparently not shut down for beer virus, just broken. Also floor 65 is apparently where all the people in town for the marijuana convention are staying. The hallways have had an overwhelmingly pungent aroma of mara-joo-wanna the whole time we've been here so far, and at all hours.

    I forgot to mention that at Wynn as well. We were on a smoking floor and the smell of high quality bud was pretty aromatic and strong everytime we got off the elevator. We don’t mind at all but have noticed the same thing at Encore on smoking floors. It’s kind of funny because you really don’t smell a lot of cigarette smoke on those floors but the sticky icky always comes through. I have not noticed the same thing on our penthouse floor at Bellagio, although I am unsure if their smoking is divided up by floors or not here. I know the regular rooms are now 100% non smoking.

    I’m interested to see what your take on Wicked Spoon is, we may try that while we are staying at Cosmo.

    No wait for a cab this morning at Caesars Palace. We also did not have to wait at all leaving Wynn last night, but they definitely didnt have a line like this, which was before 9AM.

    I have sorta low expectations, but if they give us the tier BOGO, it's a good deal on trying it out. Plus between the two if us we have way more than enough RC there to cover it several times over. Either way, I wont be disappointed I suppose.

    Oh and in terms of the smoke, the entire Octavius tower is non smoking except maybe the $35,000 per night villas at the bottom.

    Wicked spoon is a little limited but looks pretty close to normal. Not bad so far. Round 1 for me is Nutella toast, a fruit cup, and an acai berry parfait. Glass of OJ. Oh, and they DID honor the BOGO for Sterling and up. Which is great because $36ea seems a little steep for breakfast, for me. But it be fair, they do have crab legs n shit, so it's not Denny's.

    Round 1 was acai berry parfait - it was top notch with a very flavorful vanilla yogurt. A summer fruit cup, decent quality produce, nothing weird done to it. And nutella toast with banana and raspberry on it. The flavor was very good but mine was a little on the chewy side like it has been sitting a little too long.

    Round 2 is a chicken apple sausage, bacon, some hash browns with some sort of cheese in em, and a scrambled eggs in a jar with chives and creme fraiche

    @MCann will you ask if they are still doing 1/2 Wicked spoon with sterling card for solo diners (as opposed to BOGO). I had heard they were allowing that at some point in the past

    They did; I am sterling and used the BOGO, then paid for the other with resort credit, so it was free for 2, which was a great deal!

    Edit - sorry, was walking and missed that you asked about for solo. I already left long ago but accidentally left with a voucher so I'll ask if I remember when ever I go cash my voucher
