    After my afternoon snack, @DaiLun picked me up and we drove to Cosmo for dinner at Jaleo. We chose the the tasting menu and most of the items were great. My least favorites were the gazpacho and fennel salad, but everything else was tasty! We opted for the Paella for an extra charge. The Flan dessert was creamy and delicious - the citrus wedges complimented the flan perfectly!

    After dinner, Dailun wanted to convert some freeplay and I played some Lightning Link.

    Left Cosmo up almost a hundred bucks! I love the Cosmo!

    Dailun had tickets to Area 15 so we drove over there to go check it out. Unfortunately, parking was scarce and the entry line was long so we decided to do it another time. He drove me back to Palazzo and said our goodbyes.

    It’s my final night in Vegas and I have an early flight back to reality tomorrow. I’m a little sore still from my tumble and am turning in a little early tonight.

    A few thoughts before I hit the sack:

    Today was definitely the highlight of my trip. Getting to meet @DaiLun and @Flowers and Dailun’s BFF was a pleasure. I had a great time at dinner with @DaiLun - this guy was a stranger to me this morning but basically turned into a new VMB friend. Thank you @DaiLun for your awesome company tonight! I was hoping to meet up with @Flowers tonight, but we’re going to do a rain check for sure! Right, @Flowers ?:)

    Anyway, I met some real good VMB peeps today. My heart (and stomach!) is full. :blowkiss:

    I had a great solo trip and actually had fun doing this trip report. I didn’t know that I’d enjoy it as much as I did.

    Whatever Cosmo gave me in wins, Palazzo took away. Silly me for thinking that Palazzo would change its ways. :confused: Might have to change home base. We shall see what kind of offers (if any) come my way.

    I don’t know when my next solo trip will be, but I know I’ll be back in October for a girls trip. Don’t know if I’ll do a TR then, but you never know!

    Thanks to everyone who followed along. I hope I was able to keep you entertained the last few days. Again, I’m super proud that I didn’t ghost you guys! Woohoo!

    Goodnight, VMB! Goodnight, Vegas!

    Well written report and the pictures were great never have enough pictures in a trip report.
    I have noticed it’s hard to win at V/P unless you spend $$$big dollars had more lucky at Cosmo or Mgm properties.
    Although like Flowers I love the Wynn/encore for drink service and style feels like your in a movie, gambling is hit or miss for me there. But when I lose there I still feel good because it’s so pretty.

    Thanks for the excellent TR @Chrisbeans This is one of those TRs where the OPs personality really shines through to make it outstanding.

    Fun fact @DaiLun said @Chrisbeans would’ve made his FGF list but was excluded because of a technicality (that happily married thing).

    This is one GREAT trip report. Great writing style, full of humor, great pictures,…

    I love the fact that I can relate to you as in great food, nice walks, properties I like, playing slots at levels I myself play them,…

    If you do another one, you can presell me a ticket now! :D

    Loved the unscheduled visit to the shrubbery!! Obviously on the condition that you didn't do yourself any damage, but I greatly respect people that can see the funny side and brush that stuff off. No great trip report ends with... and then I walked to my room stone cold sober.

    I told you at the start I had faith you’d continue and not only that, it was informative, amusing and quite beautifully pictorial.

    So sorry you felt compelled to see the foliage up close and personal. Maybe you can be “Foliage,” we already have a Flowers. My parents didn’t name me Grace for a reason. Yesterday I knocked down a sign in a very quiet church, breaking the glass. Oops. Luckily everyone there is forgiving.

    I have done tons of solo trips and sort of get into a rut. Your TR and a few others make me realize I need to eat out more. I rarely eat out at all and there are so many options I need to expand my horizons.

    Thank you for sharing your trip. You did a fabulous report.

    So glad you decided to follow through on a full trip report.

    Some beautiful pictures of your early morning walks and scrumptious food.

    Your great sense of humour also shone through the report and had me chuckling on quite a few occasions.

    You certainly packed alot into your trip and glad you also got to make some new VMB friends along the way

    Safe travels home. Thoroughly enjoyed your report and appreciate you taking the time to take us along. When you were at Cosmo, did you notice any issues with "weed" smell in your room? I'm considering staying there in a couple of weeks. I really do love the casino, but not a fan of all of the smoking on the strip and in guest rooms. I've read that some have experienced strong odors, but some do not. Just wondering what your experience was. Thanks again for sharing your trip.

    Great trip and thanks for sharing! Hope to see you next time!
     
    Cruise Time! It's not Vegas but a casino will be involved!
    3 Nights at Cosmo, then Bally's to burn my comps, probably!

    Glad you had a blast. I remember my first solo trip and while I didn't know what to expect, I pretty much go solo every time now as I don't have a lot of degenerate friends and my wife is more of a bougie traveler whereby Vegas doesn't fit the mold lol.

    Thanks for taking us along!
     
    Back again for more!

    Good morning, VMB!

    Pic of my morning stroll that I didn’t enjoy quite as much as the last 3 mornings:
    D3526936-5462-47F0-81AC-E65E5F0A0E64.jpeg

    Yup, I’m at the airport. I actually feel good about going home for once. I think 4 nights solo is a good amount of time for me. Didn’t win any money, but I have lots of great memories that will last a lot longer than my bankroll ever will!

    I took the flat-rate cab this morning as I didn’t want to wait the estimated 5-20 minutes for the Lyft/Uber. Luckily I didn’t wait as there was an accident on Tropicana/Paradise and all roads to the airport were blocked.
    E71CED91-9364-46AE-BC48-FC5106064C8D.jpeg

    The cabbie made a u-turn and we went the backroads parallel to I-215. My driver was fun to talk to and reminded me of Gronk (Rob Gronkowski), but I didn’t ask him to pose for a picture like I did when I met Sting at Palazzo. :evillaugh:

    Made it to the airport with plenty of time to spare. The TSA pre-check line in Terminal 3 was open. I was 3rd in line and the first couple in front was NOT TSA pre-check so they had to go to the peasants lane on the other end.

    Did a little slotting at the airport, of course. Doubled my buy-in.

    Well, I’m about to board so I’ll bid you all adieu for now. I will definitely come back here and reply to all the lovely messages I received today.

    Thank you all again for following along! This Solo trip is a wrap!:woohoo:
