    Intrude-away Drewm1972! I am beginning to feel human again now that I've had food & coffee. Off to explore Paris. I left my player's cards in my checked bag, which was probably for the best LOL. If there is no line I'll get another card & degen out a bit.

    Cheers to proper stemware Breanna61!

    No food pics, sorry. Think Elaine & the Drakes coffee cake scene. Next meal I'll try again.

    Hi, Drew!

    I was going to joke that I couldn't find your TR :poke:,
    but that would've left it wide open for the reply,
    "And where's yours, Richard?" :D

    Congrats on the apparently awesome start to your trip! :thumbsup:

    and @carolineno , glad to see you made it! :beer: Party on!

    RICHARD

    Still not checked in at Paris, but i held my own in their casino, minus about $20 but i used a lettuce entertain coupon so ded even. Ran $20 into a hundo on Game of Thrones.

    Pretty disappointed that they're dragging out check in. Kind of hassle at this point but im game, and it's close by. At cosmo now with my homies, and at Holsteins for the first time. Golden monkey beer & jalapeƱo poppers.

    My friends got some sort of upgrade. Once we're settled, going out for provisions & to get my gear from Paris, basically. Too annoyed to spend any more time there.[​IMG][​IMG]

    At the Bond bar, see if Mike is working and ask him for his Liquid Marijuana. Named because of the color (green), not the ingredients! :)

    You'll also want to hit the Chandelier Bar, 2nd or 3rd level and get the Verbena. Not on the menu, but it's their signature drink and a must-try-it-once-in-your-life cocktail. Served with an edible flower. Yes, an edible flower. Be sure to follow the directions, don't just go right in and start sipping before the server explains how you're supposed to drink it.

    Thanks for the tips remmerde!

    Lessee...where did I leave off. Finally got my room at Paris, but by then (4pm ) it was too late to hit the pool or nap, so i was kind of sad that i couldn't really use it. I did play all afternoon in their casino, so hopefully they will keep giving me offers. I did get some pens though!

    After Mandarin bar we went back to Cosmopolitan to play more slots & meet up with another person. i had a dealers choice at Vesper which ended up being called a Trinidad sour, just ok but i always appreciate the effort, then off to bed. Up early now, super hungry!

    The slots here at Cosmopolitan are a giving me the death by a thousand cuts treatment on this trip,but Im still on budget, and there really is nothing like this view [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Is there a dress code at Mandarin bar? It always seems like there would be.

    I imagine so. I saw one person somewhat underdressed but not turned away. Seemed business casual-y

    Off to the Henry!

    YUM!! You be an early riser @carolineno - just like me (plus I'm late to bed).
    Loving your pics - find those loose slots and take them down!
