    There’s an ongoing TR from a guy who has been in Vegas since July.

    Best Riches and have fun!

    In case you weren't aware, Cosmo has reintroduced their social hours and in my opinion, they are better than they used to be....and the short rib angolotti is back on the Scarpetta happy hour menu....

    Oh, I know. There have been some long ones reported on VMB through the years. You've probably read them as well. For me, anything over five days tends to be too long unless you plan some out of town stuff to break up the trip

    Omg within 5 minutes of each other! What's crazy is this is extra draw frenzy. I hoped I would get the frenzy draw but nope.

    20200909_165902.jpg OK. Trying to remember where I left you. I was playing vp and getting great hits. Then dinner at Old Homestead. I had the prix fixe and it was great! Caesar salad with the best croutons. 10 oz filet and creme brulee. I added some asparagus and a glass of Malbec. So good and I was stuffed.

    After I played a bit more. Slots were up and down but vp continued to be nice. Then a group of us went to Emerald Island in Henderson. It wasn't rely my kind of place. It felt crowded and it was very smoky. But we played a while and I did OK. Not a lot of pics from there but I will post the best from this afternoon and evening.

    Tomorrow I check out of CP and head to plaza. I'm excited to try downtown! I have permission to record at plaza so I hope to get lots of good stuff!

    I'll wager you get quicker cocktail service at Plaza than you have been..
    What are you planning to film there, game play?

    There's a new youtuber posting a lot of roulette there w filming clearance and reserved table, I like the way he tips, on buyin and leaving..

    Good luck! they have a real nice new bank of multiline VP somewhere around the cashier, IIRC.

    Good stuff so far! And I see you found the 9/5 DDB quarter machine at CP. ;)

    Good luck the rest of the way!

    I've been hearing it's much better DT. And I plan to film VP, slots, restaurants, etc. I don't think I can film table play. But we'll see.

    Good luck!! And maybe I'll see you around at Cosmo!

    Thanks! And ya, you really have to watch the tables at CP. They are all over the place!

    Good morning Vegas! It's another beautiful sunny day here. Still not too hot! Yay. I'm packing up soon and heading DT. I can't wait to stay there for the first time. Hopefully a jackpot will find me at Plaza!

    I also just uploaded Day 1 of my Vegas Vlog. More days to come as I can get them done. But I've learned it's a lot of work to do one every day. I want to enjoy my vacation. LOL See you at the Plaza!

    You should be able to film at the Plaza. I know that SlotLady has filmed there. There are also two guys that film roulette there. May have to talk to someone in the table games department, but I know I've seen legit film on Youtube from the Plaza.

    The 7/5 5-play bonus poker -- that looks like the All-Star Poker machine at CP near the Colosseum that, on different trips in 2019, gave me royals on consecutive days (which rescued that trip) and also a dealt straight flush (on 10-play, at quarters). I know of only one other machine in the whole property that has 7/5 bonus at quarters. Hoping that machine gives you even better luck next time. Go LINE IT UP downtown!
