    My Trip Report

    Week 2 Football?! o_O

    Who cares that Week 1 hasn't finished yet... shout out to UK on +8 Cowboys! Starting Vegas planning as we are taking off in 4 short days with JetBlue doing the heavy lifting.

    So, Mr. Scripps what's got you starting the first ever Live Trip report today? First time in my life booking two Casinos at the same time :eek: Old hat for some, but this is going to be the kickoff of future Cosmo parties to come. Choices are pretty limited, current option is a Terrance One Bedroom unit. Will most like be staring at the Cosmo sign, but hey it's a start! Potential upgrade to a wrap around suite (like it), have the fingers crossed! More importantly two semi cool rooms to bounce between, looking forward to causing some trouble, hand pays, and increasing my daily alcohol by 10 fold :drunk:

    Updates to start rollin' Thursday as we get this party started

    Waiting till Thursday is very overrated and hot damn we are 48 hours from liftoff!

    Good success on dinner reservations:

    Martorano’s - mixed reviews for some, have always appreciated the bar, staff, and shrimp bizbe. Will be my last meal ever at this joint and do not see myself checking out Martha and Snoop Dog

    E’ - Someone smiling on me somewhere, received email from Cosmo last minute reservation completed. Really looking forward to the meal and high expectations on food. Wine pairing for sure, game time decision on type. Reviews seriously look amazing and it’s increased my anticipation on the meal. This could be the highlight of the trip.

    STK - Cool to hear food and DJ :eek: in all seriousness menu looks good. Will be interesting to scope out some new spots.

    As for the other plans we’ll get to those in the next post.

    We have arrived to almost lift off! Randomly walked in to a newer Hilton Garden, not claiming it’s posh just nice to be in a newer spot. Flight out early am, plan of action is crushing some work, getting z’s, gambling my face off. Looking forward to the trip, always escape week 2 gonna be epic :woohoo:

    Good transfer to airport this morning, 15 minutes from hotel to gate being the 3rd stop. For those Boston folks out there, Hilton Garden Inn at Logan is the way to go.

    Obligatory plane picture attached! T-5 hours to arrival.

    Wanderfuel… new JetBlue totbag. Contents were interesting, this is an improvement from former bags including a tooth brush! Found 2 movies for viewing and breakfast looks potentially OK.

    Biggest score was the vodka and OJ pre-take off. Heard a rumor these had stopped, but this ain’t no American Airlines flight :D Drinks have started to flow, finding a table when this aluminum can lands!

    Presidential pick-up was fine, I hilariously took the wrong tram. Short bud ride later found baggage claim!

    Flew into Paris like a Caesar (pre-darado conquest). Chilling for a bit then hitting the floor, sportsbook and Cosmo. Going to be a heck of a night!

    Wasn’t thinking on the plan, distracted by beverages. Nice flight in, thought those clouds were epic. Plus who doesn’t love mad max?! If only the slot was as great as the movie :cool:

    Have a great trip! I'm jealous that you will get one last dinner at Martorano's. Looks like they will be closed by the time I get there! :cry:

    Cosmo was cool, snapped to Sterling quickly. Will be gambling there more this week. @MCann found that pinball machine, she was a beauty!

    up right now, but nothing exciting, $100 wheel of fortune sucked 4K out on two different passes… there will be more :confused:

    Ok Paris has been interesting…

    blackjack crushed

    craps up

    baccarat up up it’s like this whole new game and you can play it drinking! Just basically need to guess right with zero thinking. Had fun!

    some slots on the side, been a good first day.

    Ah Martoranos, have had some fabulous times there over the last decade. Sad day to see this place closing. How do we do the last dinner? In my opinion it needs to be Philly style, food was great and drinks solid… thank you Eldarado on paying the bill
