    Always a comedic report - we all knew there had to be a hotel room issue at some point! Although with the Eastside Cannery issue, I can certainly see from their back-end system that they can't reimburse you for money not spent, especially the cost of an Uber. I totally get the amount's small, but think about the can of worms that opens up, to pay specific reimbursement for such a non-related expense. If another guest doesn't like their room can they decide not to take it and then ask them to reimburse for the cost of a bottle of Jameson and a pizza since they were bummed out and needed to soothe their disappointment?!

    The room safe thing is totally valid, you're 100% right about misrepresentation, but the reimbursement expectation is funny. I think they handled it just fine - at least you're pleased with the upgrade.

    Taking off...

    Landing...

    As much as I’m hungry and my brain is itching to cook again... my worn-out body is saying “nah bro, you’re ordering Chipotle tonight”. No biggie, that just gives me more time to think something up to cook tomorrow :)

    ... which may or may not involve a sizzling pork guava margarita. Damnit @jimboguy for putting that idea in my head!

    Boo! I hate to see your trip end! Thanks for all the great info. The Palms pool looks impressive as does the room you got downtown. I wish I had your energy! Thanks for the report!

    I’m trying, and failing, to recall if you ever visited Double Down and had their bacon martini. If you could stomach that, a sizzling pork guava margarita will be cake for you.

    I've only stayed at one hotel in LV without room safes: Sunset Stn. So, if you're planning on another stay near Henderson, stay away from there. I had to use the safe deposit boxes at the front desk...what a pain in the ass.

    Much colder here than in Vegas. Just below freezing... I can see my breath when I exhale. :(

    Some cars have snow, about this amount here and there

    Also haven’t seen road salt in what feels like forever now.

    Great stuff, @notfromconcentrate - I'm visiting my daughter next summer. I'll shoot you a PM before I leave ... maybe a beer.

    Awesome trip thanks again for letting us tag along. I also enjoyed the Buffalo saga, quite an event. I also forgot how much Americana was at Founding Fathers especially for a Canadian. I’m guessing you didn’t run into the owner. Very cool retired history teacher that loves to shoot out trivia to folks sitting at the bar. Had some interesting after 2AM pours there.
