    Yapping update. Dog quieted shortly after posting. Started again later, but that lasted only 1-2 minutes.

    Glad I waited it out.

    Never noticed this before. Only my third MGM stay this year. Didn't see at Aria or Mandalay Bay 16378574830977824012101022256441.jpg

    Sipping coffee in my room... maybe one of my favorite parts of my LV visits. (OK, handpays are pretty high on that list)

    Nomad windows open a few inches...one of mine was open a sliver and whistled until I pushed it fully shut. I think it was pretty windy last night.

    Those Veer towers drive my wife insane. I also am not a huge fan. I think it’s one of those examples of just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

    Adding a couple days to the trip.

    I just remembered I had a rental reserved for yesterday arrival. The airport was so empty, my travels proceeded so smoothly, I hopped in a cab.

    I wonder if there's a charge for that.

    Nomad artwork on my tablet..... or how to kill time when you learn you didn't push the plug fully into the outlet, your phone didn't charge, and it's at 8% 1637862558532531006601150833782.jpg 16378626559594181705159626132254.jpg 1637862680470446416080869196977.jpg 16378627140763852386105418554726.jpg 16378627385661480225659902573799.jpg 16378629042012062029681697476987.jpg 16378629267857827154450502472655.jpg 1637862955160432353533239489524.jpg 16378629797634878190525190059865.jpg 16378630299836706742072094343788.jpg 16378631179276501327796000238820.jpg 16378631493046453871795308733208.jpg 163786317941791281849561918329.jpg 16378632551885336781774461104305.jpg

    Apologies for blur, bad angles, etc. Reflection from windows was an issue. No flash on tablet.

    Despite quality of shots, good indication of how eclectic these rooms are.

    Canceled my rez at Primrose Thanksgiving buffet and had a mortadella sandwich and shiitakes instead.

    I walked through buffet line while they were setting up....and it appeared very scaled back and minimal compared to pics/descriptions of prior years. Decision also influenced by other factors.

    I'm thinking of breaking my rule about playing elsewhere when staying at a program-property. I never play at Cosmo when staying MLife and vice versa.

    1. Park MGM has been brutal.
    2. I'm close to securing Platinum for next year... sorta pointless to play further. For HGS? I'm not gonna get invited to Noir.

    So I might go over to Cosmopolitan or Wynn and give them an entire day.... careful not to screw with my visit-averages.

    I matched Wynn Platinum this year, will be staying there Christmas. Might help to get some extra play in for 2021 before promotional matched status expires 12/31

    Then again, maybe another MLife property will be luckier.

    I’m thinking about playing at Cosmo today too. Didn’t do well at Wynn last night. Let me know if you want to meetup:)

    I almost canceled my Thanksgiving dinner plans. Wasnt that hungry. And I arrived at restaurant to learn that tech-glitch was showing 2020 special menu online instead of this year's.... so what I saw upon arrival was unexpected.

    Bardot's Thanksgiving Feast.

    Everything delicious. Great service. But I quickly realized they were preparing servings in the kitchen... and the same sizes were served to table of one, two or four. OMG did they serve me a ton of food. I felt wasteful leaving most uneaten. I took some in a box, but doubt I'll eat any.

    For SF Bay Area folk, this is old news. Millennium Tower in SF, once home to Joe Montana, is sinking and leaning. Things keep getting worse, repair efforts only uncover more problems. I wonder if the future will ultimately be "Harmon Tower by the Bay"

    I'd take an intentional veer over an accidental sink 'n lean any day
