    I am at the airport! Early of course. Lol no traffic, airport is not busy at all. Security was fast, but once again I got padded down? And it's never by the cute guy??

    Sitti g at Champs to eat since there wont be anything on the flight. Pics when I get my food, but here's the first adult beverage of the flight! Ahhhhh

    The burger kind of looks like a preformed frozen burger but tastes OK. The menu here is also very reduced, which is like most places.

    Cosmopolitan was full of dogs, not all toys either! Didn’t hear any from the room so it’s fine by me. Love my pets but I do enjoy a break from their shedding! Enjoy your Vegas!

    If you're feeling adventurous, you could order one of these on Amazon for in-room enjoyment. Your comment prompted me to Google a few terms like "portable sauna" and I was amazed but not surprised to discover this is a thing :eek:

    On board and scored an exit row. Middle seat empty. Love that. 20200908_171018.jpg

    That sounds like a good itenerary. We just got back from our 9 day trip. Pop-Up pizza was much better than I expected it to be. The Detroit style slice was fantastic! And on that note, if you like thicker pizza, I suggest the sicilian pizza at Pizza Rock. IT was fanfreakentastic. I would get that again in a heartbeat. It's huge, but worth stuffing yourself over.

    If you are that close, you might want to walk down towards the El Cortez and try Evel Pie. They have some crazy slices that are pretty good.

    If you have a moment, while you are at the Plaza, would you be able to get me a good picture of the Silver Strike slot machine? I got a few strikes out of the machine for my dad as a present. But I missed getting a picture of the machine and the sign that talks about the strikes and the silver content. If you could snap one while you are there I would be so happy!

    Enjoy the view from Cosmo. We had a Bellagio fountain room early last week and it was amazing. We could tune the TV to channel 22 and hear the music. I'm sure you will have a greta view from the Cosmo!

    Oh yeah. Those are actually pretty common for cottages, etc.

    I suspect this could be quite a bit more messy, though... and I suspect the heating mechanism might not be safe for indoor use.

    If Vegas ever gets back to normal again, the fact that we were ever even speculating about these things will seem so silly! :)

    Have a great flight!

    Glad you had clear skies. It was super windy this morning and blew all the smoke away. And the temps dropped to the 80s. Alice arrives and all turns sunny and bright!

    The flight was uneventful. Got early boarding and snagged an exit row. Comfy. Had water snacks and 4 hours of hsndmaids tale. Now waiting on luggage and then see what the Uber situation is.

    You could definitely see the red in the sky from the fires.
