    My Trip Report

    We're excited. Our last Vegas Adventure was in November 2018. We have a trip planned for late October. An offer for 3 comped nights at Paris popped up. This instigated planning an August trip. No Vegas for 2 years. Now two trips separated by less than 3 months. We're excited.

    When we hit town I'll be posting details and photos of our adventure.

    We’re sitting at Gate 11. A boarding passes. Flight leaves at 8:38pm, 23 minutes later than the reservation. I’ll survive. Self Checked the bags. Easy. C5A16BAA-9B70-4F07-A1C5-CFDF161EB120.jpeg

    First food pic. We had hunger. We didn’t want a big meal so late. We split this little feast. Burrata and Avacado Caprese salad heirloom tomatoes, fresh burrata, basil, avacado olive 72141AFA-95BA-4919-8BF9-F95718425827.jpeg oil and balsamic. Decent chicken tenders. Expensive late evening meal. Salad $16.00, Crispy Chicken Tenders $19.00. Kept us going for another hour or so before we hit the wall.

    She’s playing DDB with a wacky pay table. You must risk 10 quarters to get the good payout. We played for an hour. She is pleased with a couple
    of 4OAK wins. She’s up about $220. I let my first Benjamin grow week until he was down to $30. Called it a night. In the room chilling sleep is near.

    Up and moving slow. I’d hoped to use the spa this am. They do not open until 9:00am. $50 fee. No thanks. I have often used the spa early mornings, 6:00am, with no charge. A little disappointed.

    Some pics of our messy room.

    They charge to use spa facilities now ? Thought that's what resort fee covers Always went to use steam room and showers after a bender.

    mike mc - yeah, I always used the spa. Part of resort fee I guessed. New company running the spa. On previous trips I loved jumping in the jacuzzi, cold pool, jacuzzi then the sauna and steam room. Then shower and shave and get stoked for a new day. Not this trip.

    We just finished eating at JJ Boulangerie. Playing VP DDB.

    After JJ Boulangerie we went next door to the CVS in front of Bally’s. Grabbed a case of water and lugged it back to the room.

    We found some decent VP DDB machines near the Sports/Race Book and played for a good while. I surrendered another $150 playing at the quarter level and $ level. So far I’m down $310. She’s close to even maybe $50 ahead. 12:09 pm local. We’re in the room lounging.

    We’ll head over the Bellagio early evening. We have some FreePlay to use and a MyRewards for gelato. Pics and updates will be posted.

    Pic of the machine I began my quest for CET’s money.

    That caprese salad looks awesome. I may try that for a lunch. Which restaurant did you get that?

    We enjoyed our time at Bellagio. She played at a Blackjack game for 30 or so minutes. Ended even for the session betting .25 and $.

    pics are from our meal. Very tasty spring rolls, she had a fine Merlot. I sipped a well constructed Old Fashion. Japanese whiskey infused with lemongrass. The Thai bitters complimented the whiskey well. She loved her Fried Rice Soft-shell crab. My Red Curry Beef was awesomely flavorful yet, the curry didn’t over power the beef and abundance of vegetables. Great meal. After deducting our MyReward dealio we spent $92. This included a generous tip.
