    Ok guys, sorry I haven’t updated since the first day, but been trying to stay off the phone and in vacation mode as much as possible. We didn’t end up doing Costa Di Mare the first night and skipped Bardot the next day and instead just did Block 16 and room service and some other things I didn’t take pics of.

    Sunday night we went to see Absinthe and it was awesome, I would highly recommend as long as raunchy humor doesn’t offend you and we will definitely go see it again provided it’s still playing next time we go. The audience was split into tables of 2-4 people, and it made for a relaxed lounge like atmosphere. Afterwards we had dinner at Joe’s in Forum shops. I had stone crab claws as an entree and my wife had a petite filet and we had sautéed Broccolini and the Mac and cheese and everything was fantastic.
    I also played what was for me a lot of slots while at Cosmo and no table games. Didn’t take many pics while playing but I did generate about $24K of coin in in 3 days and when I went to the host office before checkout they took $220 off the total tab (the base level room of terrace fountain view was already comped so I guess I played at least enough to earn that plus the $220 he comped off, which seemed very fair to me.)Also while playing the second day a host came and found me and gave me his card and told me to give him a shout next time we plan on coming. We really enjoyed our time there and then yesterday morning we left and checked into Bellagio and this room is enormous and really nice and we also lucked out and got floor 19 so we have the balcony! Actually it’s two balconies. Pic dump incoming.

It’s our new favorite for casual quick eats here now. Then we went and had a little nap before dinner at Lago, where we lucked out and got a seat right at the windows. Saw 3 or four fountain shows while there and we both ordered from the prixe fix menu, she had the cherry tomatoes with Buffalo mozzarella and I had the shrimp cocktail for appetizer and we also shared a small margherita pizza. We each had chicken piccata for entree and then I had the limoncello and she had the cheesecake for dessert. As usual, the food and service there were superb and Lago has certainly cemented itself as a must do for every Vegas trip.
    After dinner we poked around and played some slots before calling it a night early and heading up to our suite. We both slept like babies and slept in pretty late for us (8-830). This morning, we went down to VIP Lounge and got some coffee and then went for a walk outside. Then we walked over to Forum shops and walked around and my wife got something from the Guess store before coming back to Bellagio. We are at Noodles again (we had a $50 credit to use so the lunch tab came to 69 cents lmao). The crab fried rice and shrimp tempura and Pan fried pot stickers at Noodlesare so good. Then I sat down at a $25 blackjack table for about 3 shoes, then my wife came down and we played some slots for an hour or so, and now we are back in the room again. Dinner tonight at Carbone at 630 and unfortunately I have to be up early as I will need to call in on Zoom At 6AM for my companies budget planning meetings for 2021 so I will likely be planted here in this suite for most of the day tomorrow.

    Dinner at Carbone was fantastic. Lovely service and terrific food. They have a delicious bread basket that comes with some parmigiana cheese and pickled cauliflower and salami. For an appetizer we had the grilled octopus which was a little spicy so of course I loved it but my wife said she prefers Milos’s. We also shared a rigatoni with vodka sauce which is the dish they say they are famous for. I would probably order that as my entree next time it was so good. We each got a meatball to go with that. Then we shared a gigantic veal Parmesan and had potatoes Louie as a side. I think my wife was starting to get full after the pasta and meatball but she was able to power through and eat a little of the Veal (her first time trying Veal Parmesan and she also sampled the potatoes but she didn’t like them because she said she could taste the duck fat. I thought the potatoes were phenomenal but it was a very large portion and after finishing everything else we couldn’t even come close to finishing the potatoes. We skipped dessert as we were both full as a tick and caught a can back to Bellagio. Stopped into VIP To get some waters and OJ For the morning and headed back to the suite. It’s very likely we will just chill and enjoy a movie or something before going to bed as I need to be up early in the morning.

We did Lago again for dinner last night and then hit some slots here at Bellagio but really didn’t stay long in the floor. After Mrs Kachow went to bed I walked back over to Cosmo and did some more slotting for a couple hours and had a good time with a decent amount of free games but never got up. Oh well, generated some decent resort credit for next trip and nearly made it to gold. This morning we woke up and had some room service and packed and then I walked down to the front so I could catch a picture of Mrs Kachow on the balcony just because how many people have pictures of themselves on the balcony of a hotel that many people don’t know has balconies (second balcony from bottom.) Next we walked around the conservatory. Our limo leaves in an hour and ten minutes so here is some pictures of our dinner and some pics I took this morning. We are finishing packing now and then going to head down to the VIP lounge to check out.

    Thanks for all the pics. I'm so glad you got the odd floor and balcony access! I've still never had the 1br lakeview suites show up using my MLife offers and they give me ridiculous low rates on cypress/penthouse and lower, so I wont be paying full retail for one, but some day I hope I can have a picture of myself on a balcony at a resort many people dont know has balconies! What a great pic!
