    My Trip Report

    The day is upon us friends. Departing shortly on a weekend jaunt to the favorite escape.

    It's been a minute since Linie's last adventure. And while the atmosphere may be slightly askew presently the excited anticipation has not been diminished.

    I want to thank of you for sharing through pictures and stories. Certainly helps pass the time between the long awaited return.

    Staying at the Cromwell for 3 nights. Not much in the way of plans. Most of the trip is anchored to the NFL Playoffs with reservations at Circa Sports book Sunday.

    An insider tip: the house edge of the game I'm playing is directly proportional to the state of inebriation.

    Relaxing at the gate in ATL. Wheels up in a hour. See yall on the other side .

    Have a great trip. I stayed there years ago when it was the Barbary Coast. You'd get from your room to the casino in record time. Ask for a room not facing Flamingo though (I had one). I think they hold all emergency vehicles until about 2am and then let all the sirens loose for the next 4 hours! Great location for the strip. Go Hawks!

    Stay safe and enjoy! I love the Cromwell. Any pics of the room and overall conditions there will be appreciated if you can manage!

    The wonders of a aviation cease to amaze. Little thrust, a little lift, and we have successfully crossed the span of the US in 4 hours. Truly remarkable. Also, remarkable is how prominent and bright the Resorts World screen is from the plane on approach.... On the ground headed to Cromwell.

    I'm following along. Had planned to be there this weekend, but just couldn't do it. It is truly an orgy of NFL games—history making—with six do or die meetings. Please include plenty of pics from your experience watching the game at Circa. That seems to be the epicenter of sports betting in America at this time.

    Went to Joe's for a quick bite. Wondered down to Cosmo for a drink at Vesper. Played some VP at Chandy for minute but the bar staff is a little overwhelmed. Pictures forthcoming. Admittedly on the struggle bus trying to input things. Hopefully get some pointers from a fellow vmber later tonight.

    Hey all, having issues typing on mobile website. Cursor jumps around making it virtually impossible to type. Having to copy and paste from notes which is to say the least not conducive to writing a trip report and enjoying the moment. Going to reinstall my keyboard to see if that corrects this issue. If it does I'll keep the report going otherwise it might just be pictures.

    Bummer about the keyboard! Have a good time rest of the way!

    If you play anymore at Cosmo, I wouldn't bother with that progressive. Non-progressive Bonus is 7/5 for dollars, even at the bars!
