    Thanks for the great report and pictures! So sorry the gambling Gods weren't smiling on you this visit. I'm sure the middle-aged couples at Opium spent the better part of their trip being "offended and outraged" at most things Las Vegas. It'll give 'em all something to talk about back at Tuesday's Bible-study gathering.

    Cool TR, thanks for those pics, seeing a few things I haven't gotten to see before (lobster pot pie, Cromwell room, etc).

    Looks like we miss each other by a couple days. When I saw your countdown timer I thought it was going to be close enough that there may be a day or two of overlap, but you had a quick trip and left already! Maybe next time we will cross paths.

    Enjoyed the report. Sounds like you had a fun and relaxing weekend with some excellent food. The lobster pot pie looks yummie. Sorry about the losses but hopefully you get some back during the old ladies' trip.

    Appreciate the report! They'll save your $ for your return trip. I'm pretty sure that's the way it works.

    Nice breakdown of your trip! Food and drink sounds/looks great. Your TR is a reminder to venture off the strip once in a while. Good luck on your next trip. Looking forward to the TR, live or not.

    Yes - they are on the menu at Eatwell. They also have a taco + drink item for $8 but I had to try the Dogs.

    Great report! I say don’t bother reporting live, enjoy the trip, take a few pics and bring us degenerates along after the event! I always feel a little sorry for live reporters having to ‘keep it going’ rather than just enjoying their trip. Maybe that’s just me?!?

    Thanks for the report! I really enjoyed the food & drink pics. I love chili dogs, so eatwell at Cromwell is on my list for my July trip. I checked out their menu & they have some other healthier items that sounded great too. Oh, that lobster pot pie looked yummy too! :feedme:

    @spicole - where do you get those Barbary dogs? They're so cute! :D

    Thanks for grouping all the food/drink pics into one wrap-up, easier to drool over everything at once! ;)

    I must try Frankie's Tiki Room next time!

    Great report!

    I love trip reports with photos! Thanks for sharing. The Cromwell rooms do look nice but so cramped.

    Owww on the gambling! Glad you still had a good trip! Please skip the live report....it seems we lose so many posters when they get off the plane! Just enjoy and fill us in later!

    I'm serious, McDonald's is my guilty pleasure. It's so bad, yet so tasty.

    It's not just you. I'm not sure I can deliver on a truly live report.
