    I appreciate you guys. My trip was really eventful I enjoyed getting out of the house after 2 months. I will say that it was really hard to keep up with wearing that mask after so many drinks. Also if your like me and love frozen drinks. You will be disappointed to find out I could not get one in any of the casinos downtown or on the strip. The outside bar at 4 Queens had them for $16 which I just had to buy. I also had the one at Fat Tuesdays that was really good but that was it and I'm a big daiquiri drinker so I was kind of disappointed. The couple that was going to get married did at the Bellagio fountains it was nice. Vegas Wedding Wagon was great again just like for my wedding awesome couple. Didn't get to play much poker or blackjack this trip. I was missing the slots so I spent most of the time there.

    As you all may know from my 1st report I am a low rolling housewife. My overall budget was about 400 including food, gambling, and weed. Out of that I lost about 250 gambling. Alot of my food was comped through my aunt or my binions app. My room at Fremont was also comped. I used 3 Konami freeplays and made enough to cover my gambling for the entire day. I left Vegas with around 60 bucks and gambled everyday until about 2 or 3 am so I will say I did great. I for sure had a amazing time and it really felt like normal Vegas minus the mask and the difficulty getting around.

    My advice is if you plan to go in the next few weeks stay downtown. Its just so much easier. I'm sure by now they are getting the bus service in order but the lack of casinos that was open on the strip make everything further away. Also the restaurant selection was horrible. We ended up at the deli at NY NY because barely anything was open. Also we were overcharge 3 separate times by uber. My bill from the airport in the XL was $54 when they originally quoted us $28. We made a quick pickup at the dispensary which I have done before but we shouldn't have been charged double.

    If your still really worried about Covid just don't go. The plane was my 1st indication that there would be no social distancing. Same thing in the casinos and elevators. People just don't think and most didn't wear mask. Also I did not see them cleaning the machines at all and by the 2nd day the security wasn't even paying attention to the scanners when you walked in.

    I appreciate you all going along for the ride with me I'm actually glad I took the trip now and that I have this report to remember it. Until next time VMB Family.

    -250 isn't too bad for a a few days, @MzB85! Yeah finding daiquiris is tough. Gustavs bar at Paris (when they open again) will comp them. As will the Bird Bar at Flamingo. I think those bartops both have a small amount of IGT slot games, but easier to play VP.
