    Closed out the night having drinks with friends, then a little Secret Pizza to soak up the booze.

    Might do a little session this morning and might show my friend, who is leaving today, the fabulousness of the Peppermill!

    We did a tour of Fashion Show Mall before my friends dropped me off at Cromwell. Lost $150 at blackjack, the carnage continues.

    No progressives for me at The D.

    One quad is all I could muster, but it wasn’t enough. It was comical how many 4 to a flushes I had and didn’t convert a single one

    Won a little at The D playing Craps, then grabbed a slice from Pizza Rock.

    Met up with [email protected], Hogman, Pete and Johnzimbo. We had fun playing Craps at California and Golden Gate, won a bit in both sessions. Always great to meet up with VMB members in real life!!

    Now back at Aria

    Sorry, but no wins from last night to share. Just lose lose lose this trip. Played at Aria, and did one last Strip wander, grabbed a burger from Shake Shack and called it a night.

    Getting ready to check out and then headed to Lago for lunch!

    Cute, cute doggy @boxofbirds

    Love the food pics. Hope the up / down gambling changes to up and up for the rest of the trip.
    Thanks for taking us along, it’s so fun to hear about meetups with the VMB gang.

    Lago!

    This has become our last day tradition. Ask for the pre fixe menu.

    I love Lago Lunch too. I had a myVegas deal for a free cocktail at lunch with the purchase of the pre fixe. I didn't see it on the menu so I asked. I see why they don't advertise that....It is a fabulous deal. You get 3 courses for the price of an entree. I ordered the Lago cocktail which was over $10 so they just took $10 off the meal. Always tasty and the view can't be beat.

    Safe travels home. Sorry about the losses, but the luggage will be lighter, right?

    One last comped cocktail at Alibi, courtesy of MyVegas. At the airport now, trip 20 is in the books. Minus the gambling it was amazing!!

    Will do a wrap up later as always
