    Yes, it’s along one of the pillars in the back portion of the floor facing out to the main walkway.

    Got my final free wheel spin with my friend Jamie. Unfortunately he could not do it 3x, but he made it exciting. Certainly looked like another $1000 as the wheel was slowing, but clicked two posts past.

    Floor is not slowing down at all, looks like it might even be worse than last night was. I’m nervous what it’ll look like to check out tomorrow as it doesn’t seem like there were many departures.

    Gambling ends with a whimper. Put the last of the house money tonight through Huff n Puff and hit a sad bonus with the last spin before I cashed out. Up $80 for the evening.

    Wife made a few purchases with her $100 Identity resort credit she earned through the Match Game promo earlier this year. Then we grabbed some food to bring back up to the room for dinner.

    Khao Man Som Tam from Pok Pok, not the biggest fan of the papaya salad but the pork and rice were top notch

    Bronx Bomber from Lardo, wife demanded one more order of their fries

    Now just time for some trashy tv while we pack up for tomorrow. We have a morning flight out and I need to get my Identity points applied to the folio at check out. Should be able to cover the entire bill and not have to worry about a huge balance at risk of expiring like I was dealing with before this trip.

    Last views from the terrace. Viva Las Vegas is a good fountain show to go out on.

    Its funny, I didn't find the casino floor hot at all when I was there a few days last week. And if you go during the week, it's not crowded at all. I had no problem getting a machine, and Cosmo's drink service was the best of the several casinos I played. When I left Friday early evening, there were a crazy amount of people checking in. I've heard the weekends are really busy, so a stay with mostly Sunday through Thursday is your best bet if worried about Covid. I ate at STK, the Henry, and Wicked Spoon and they were busy but tables well spaced.
    Congrats on your wheel spins! Great report and pictures.

    Was that for both of you, with drinks, or each? Seems cheap for 2 with drinks!

    Interesting - I noticed the same phenomenon at Caesars Palace and a couple other places on our 4th of July trip, but when we moved over to Bellagio, it was comfortable there.

    Other than a rowdy craps table, it was basically empty on the floor this morning as we left. Lots of carpet cleaning going on. Grabbed one last Vietnamese Iced Coffee and a burrito from District, which was actually much spicier than anticipated. Maybe not the best choice before a long flight.

    Rental Car return and security was backed up, thankfully TSA pre was available at C gates so made it through quickly once in the terminal. Now delayed on the plane at the gate thanks to Air Force One.

    Yep! The funny thing was the the prix fixe actually wasn’t much of a savings, it was just a smart marketing move. I think my items ordered separately would have been $60 instead of the $59 prix fixe. Some of the other combos would have been bigger savings.

    I checked out before Identity staff were on property, so they had to apply the points later and send me the finalized folio. Didn’t even use up the entire balance and was left with just shy of $200 in charges to cover the grats.
