    Gambling late last night started up and ended down. Started off with small wins at 8/5 BP, blackjack, Wonka Pure Imagination and Game of Thrones. Then the losses came. $75 at blackjack, $75 at Walking Dead, $300 at DDB. DDB was particularly brutal last night. All was at El Co.

    3 AM food from Siegel's was wedge salad and a BLT w/fries. It was very good.

    At the airport now headed back to SFO. I'll make a final entry later tonight.

    This was my first trip report and It was kind of fun to do especially since it was a solo trip. It's nice to have someone to share the experiences with. I'll be back in Las Vegas with my wife in April, staying at Cosmo. Hopefully I'll be doing another solo trip downtown in November, if not there, then it will be Reno. Thanks for reading.

    I'll close this TR with a cool video that I shot taking off from LAS then rolling out over the Strip. It wasn't from this trip. It was from last year.

    That stupid podium/wall thingy for the the expanded zip lines just trashes the view from Oscars. And it completely blocks out Plaza from the rest of FSE!

    From what I understand, The Plaza refused to invest in the FSE, so putting up that wall was their way to stick it to the Plaza.

    haha, That was kind of his attitude at first but he also got a toy slot machine, and a name license plate for his bike. So far the gloves have gotten the most use though, especially after sunset.

    Nice...I see flights taking that path all the time from the balcony at Cosmo, but I never fly in that direction.

    Nice trip report @RedChip! Really enjoyed seeing your food pics and slot machine play. How did you attach/embed videos in your report? Funny about the tattoo!

    Thanks @Vegasworm. I think there is more then one way to do it, and I'm not a pro. It was my first time doing this. The way I do it is upload the video to my Youtube page, make sure it viewable to the public. After the video uploads, you'll get a URL to copy. As your posting in VMB, there is a "movie" icon on the tool bar. Click on that icon and paste the Youtube URL in there.
