    The Villa is perfection and the decorations are magnifique :kiss:

    Hi @Sonya - you look awesome. :cool: Wish I were a little :noangel: on your shoulder so I could eavesdrop on all the fun.:drooling:

    Your meet with @ardee and everyone else at the villas looked amazing. I’m so jealous. The place looks perfect and the company must have been exceptional. Thanks for posting this.

    What a wonderful setting for your gathering; @ardee, you and hubby rock. Everything is so festive!
    That medallion is priceless Mike; I'm sure it is a memento that will bring smiles to your face for many years to come.

    I usually hit that one up first in the casino upon arrival. Looking for a little lightning in a bottle. :hmmm:

    @Retrobabble and I decided to go TRUE old-school and eat at The Buffet tonight at Wynn. They were definite bringing their A-Game tonight......wonderful buffet. It was a nice low key meal for my last evening here. Wish I could have hit Sinatra this trip but the timing just didn’t work out, which is fine; I’ll just have to make sure I hit Sinatra twice during my December trip.

    :peace: :beer:

    I truly thought I had it on this one. I had just stepped up to dimes, betting $5 per spin. I got the three diamond bonus spins. On the first of six bonus spins I got the entirety of the bonus and thought I had the hand pay in the bag. Next five spins zilch, nada, none, no soup for me. Still, this machine was really good to me over the last two days with some great bonii.

    Last nights in Vegas are always bittersweet but I’m making the most of it and having a blast rollin’ with @Retrobabble.

    Yes, both halves of the @ardee duo do indeed rock!! :headbang: They put together a wonderful evening for all of us and one that I’m sure will be remembered for a very long time by all of us. Spending time with folks like I did last night is truly one of the great benefits of VMB.......the setting was just the icing on the cake.

    :peace: :beer:

    Reading your TR is helping me "transition" back into the "real world" as I returned to NYC late last night. That villa looks AMAZING. Always wanted to see one of those. I like strip views but it would be fantastic to have your own mini pool!! Ardees, you rock!

    And just looking at your Sinatra Smash Mike makes my mouth water.

    Glad to have met you during Chuck's epic Member Meet!

    I hope you have a fantastic final day of this trip!!

    Well, that’s trip 162, roughly, in the books. Even though I really wasn’t feeling too well for the vast majority of the trip I still had a great, great time. The Wynn Tower Suites was an experience that I hope to repeat again and in all likelihood will. This was my first stay at Wynn and I was impressed beyond words. The room was great but what really made my stay here was the five star customer service. I’ll get into this more when I get home and do my recap of my stay but suffice it to say that I was extremely impressed. I’m normally pretty critical about customer service shortcomings, in any realm, but I can honestly say that I don’t have one bone to pick over the last week here at Wynn. Tip o’ the cap to Wynn. :clap:

    I really had a fun time at the slot pull and the meet & greet. Big props to @Chuck2009x & @Texaschameleon for arranging everything with the folks at Clique @ Cosmo for the M&G. Chuck, as always, did another great job in the planning for the slot pull. Thanks Chuck!! It was so fun meeting so many folks at the M&G; truly one of the highlights of the trip.

    I finally got to meet up with @luck.ofthe.draw and @Sonya. They have been two of my absolute favorite VMBers for a long time and after hangin’ with them I can’t wait to wash, rinse and repeat......

    Incredible food during the past week. I’ll hit this pretty heavy in my recap..... ‘Nuff said for now.

    Gambling was up and down. I lost just short of $1.1k for the trip. Not too bad considering how long I was here. I preserved my bankroll and I’m all set for December. No comps at Wynn but that was expected going in. Unfortunately, I could never really get any momentum going on the slots but, all things considered, I had a lot of fun and I’m not too worried about the relatively small loss. Live to fight another day, eh?

    Lots and lots of poolside boat drinks and spending time with VMB chums this trip. Not one fat & juicy steak but the Beef Wellington the other night was certainly an excellent substitute. I did pretty much everything I wanted to do this trip. About the only thing I came up short on was spending more time downtown. Hoping to rectify that during my next trip in December.

    Thanks for following along everybody. Hope I provided a nugget or two of useful information to someone on VMB or, at the very minimum, provided some vicarious viewing pleasure for those all too long gaps between trips. Once I get home and get decompressed I’ll sit down at my desktop and give y’all a good & solid rundown of my thoughts, impressions and observations from this past week. I hate to leave but on the flip side it means that I’m that much closer to my next trip. See ya in December Vegas!!!
