    I'll definitely get some Circa pics.

    If i can find some $5 Mississippi then yea. Not sure i want to brave $10. But maybe it will like me since nothing else seems too, lol.

    All that Caesars SI had is $10, and I gave in to try it because I missed it so much LOL. And it worked! But I had a loss limit set for sure. Without a few decent hands to get me started it would have been a short session.

    Good luck!!

    @smbrake - what’s on the agenda for tonight? Is a costume in the mix or still planning things out?

    I didn't bring a costume with me at all. The one I had at home I couldn't find all the pieces and didn't feel like buying a new one. But people watching will be on the agenda. Probably some strip and some DT.

    You do not have to have the gate agent "upgrade" you to the "free for elite" stretch seating. Once you check in on line or thru the app, you can edit your seat selection and any available stretch seat should be priced at $ 0.00.

    I enjoy your reports and hopefully you will hit the big one soon.

    Stay healthy and safe and so far it sounds like your having a good time. Keep enjoying. Forget trying to look cute in nice shoes. Last trip i did bring cute shoes, they were snakeskin cream colored cole haan loafers. Wore them a few times. Didn't bring any heals. At this stage in my life i want comfort over sore feet.

    One trip my wife was developing a blister due to a poor footwear decision. We were in the shops of MGM, which was heavily into the Wizard of Oz theme at the time. We were trying to purchase a pair of slippers in a store named ‘Over the Rainbow’. They didn’t have any slippers, the irony of which was lost on the salesperson.
