    I want to add that during my stay, they were hardly around. But this morning, they completely dominated that side of the strip between flamingo and linq. Was never like that before. There were about 20 of them.

    So that's when I decided, fuck it, I'll go back to the Cosmo.

    Flight leaves at 259pm so I will call an Uber around 120p just to play it safe.

    Aside from the Verbena, do you know if (or would you be willing to ask if you’re still there when you read this) Chandelier will do “electradust rimmed drinks” like the Swipe Right from the pool bar?

    Perfect way to end the trip!!!

    Start it at Cosmo.

    Finish it at Cosmo.

    With a great last drink.

    And being addicted to VP. It's like crack!

    I'm just about 15 minutes or 20 from calling an Uber.

    And I'm okay with that. Nice way to go out!!!

    Great trip report!

    What a nice ending. :) Drinks and VP at Cosmo. Perfection!

    I hope your flight leaves on time and goes smoothly. Such willpower not to extend your trip by a day.

    Start planning that next trip!

    Made it to gate with over an hour to kill. I was the only person in security checkpoint. Can't even gamble because I'm outta cash and my bankroll is buried deep in my backpack. Arghhhhh lol

    It would be awesome if they found a way to do real time TSA lines. I know there's a website but it's not accurate. I could've given myself another 30 minutes! Lol

    Do you eat the Verbena or just chew on it?

    All ready to go home. Take off in 25 mind or so.

    See you back in Chicago and I'll wrap this TR up with my final thoughts.

    Here's hoping I can sleep the entire flight!

    Just woke up. Was confused because we are still in the ground. I fell asleep as we were moving from the gate.

    Issue?

    Light came on for maintenance issues.

    :grrr::grrr::grrr::grrr::grrr:

    The lead flight attendant spoke with the pilot after maintenance crew were in the cockpit.

    Then she huddled with two other attendants in the front. Then she spoke with the ones in the back.

    Another attendant came and she pulled her outside of the plane.

    Right now, it just says it will take off at 4:20 but I have a feeling this is a cancelled flight and she's getting everyone ready to be pissed.

    So, if that's the case, I have comps at CET and MLife. So I'm not worried about that. I just want my sleep!!
