    Craps is $25. Jumped on stick left and played the don’t unless I was rolling. There were quite a few PSOs in a row so I built my stack until I rolled. Im not the greatest dice chucker right now either. So an hour on the table, I’m up right now with a tremendous rating from the suit after he noticed all the 2 way bets. Drink service is superb, and no attitude whatsoever when ordering multiple Fiji’s with my drinks.

    Room still not ready according to the app. I don’t trust it, so I’m going to head over to the desk to check. Love how close it is!

    This is very funny, as that's our first reservation when we're staying at Vdara, two weeks from today. Great minds.

    Hope the tables treat you well!

    Good luck! We are staying at the Vdara for the first time in July. We also plan to use that kitchenette for leftovers. I'm curious to know what you think of it! I think they have a washer/dryer too?

    $25 craps at Aria? Damn. Never played there and probably never will at this point. Keep chucking the dice!

    Bellman was appalled, and apologized about 7 times as he took it out of there after I opened it up.

    Ooh! Ooh! Swanson's Salisbury Steak frozen dinner (w/ mashed potatoes and corn)!!!
    I ate that on March 7, 1970 and delivered my first son the next morning! Will never forget that meal! Amazing that it is still being sold - just love it!

    Interesting development... Received a call from the housekeeping supervisor also apologizing for the mystery butter in the refrigerator. Asked me I I wanted housekeeping to come up and reclean the entire room. I explained I already wiped most everything down and I was then offered a $50 credit on the room for my troubles... Ummmm SURE!

    Oh Mlife, you may have completely stolen my away from CET. For now... :thumbsup:

    Did you get the higher floor version, by chance?

    Good luck and have a great trip.

    Should've kept that butter for the microwaved bread you'll be eating around 4 AM, though.

    Yes!

    That's awesome. Much better than the regular Panoramic version.

    Room looks fantastic! Enjoy it! I regret not using the kitchen more, love having it as an option for food, tea, fresh coffee, etc.

    Man I would've made a killing in F&B credit if I was able to get that for every time stuff was left in the fridges/freezers..

    Highly recommend using UberEats if you feel lazy and don't want to grab food from outside. Vdara is probably the easiest property to deal with UberEats dropoffs

    My wife is in love with that tub. We look forward to bringing less clothes and doing some laundry while we are in town. We can have leftovers and watch TV while we wait! Looks like an amazing room!

    I was actually wondering about Postmates since I was given a big gift certificate for Christmas with the old job. Could be what’s for dinner tonight. :thumbsup:

    I’ve got a little over an hour until I have to become an Uber driver for pickup at the airport. What’s a guy to do with that kinda time on his hands?
