    Hey Luck,

    Although I love my job and serving seniors (Long Term Care and Rehab Administrator) it can be mentally challenging. I always tell my team, "be sure to feed your soul". This motto has helped me throughout my life, to keep going in a positive direction. You being in your happy town and doing what you want is feeding your soul :). Hang in there girl and keep being a shining star! Your zest for life, animals, and people is a gift and comes through always with your post. I hope some day, we cross paths in Vegas and I will buy the fucking drinks :D

    Thanks :thumbsup: Viejas wasn’t really busy at all... down a fair bit but quite a bit better than what I was facing before a decent straight/FL/FH/quad streak on Joker Poker :)

    Dinner at Le Cirque with M and his lady friend was another bucket list item fulfilled. The service was exceptional and though it wasn’t the French Laundry, it was just a step below.

    My babe Jackson cat would approve of the amuse bouche - salmon topped with chive creme somethin and a cute little tomato.

    Hello risotto
    CBCD4C41-12A7-404B-B6A0-D8FE2B3C72DE.jpeg

    My risotto was fabulous and cheesy, the chicken entree was huge and delicious, there was some stuffed penne with it that was fantastic! I think there was mushrooms inside?

    Next we got a palate cleanser for dessert - orange sorbet in a teeny tiny cone.

    After dessert we got one last surprise - again, not the French Laundry, but a nice touch!!! - we all got to pick some desserts like a macaroon or a cute lil jelly, or a homemade marshmallow! Then! Then! The ladies got a keepsake gift to take home with truffles inside! I love ittttt!

    I knew good things were in store when I saw that 420 payout...

    Seriously, I see it coming up as turning points in my adventures, confirmation bias I am sure..

    wow, Cosmo to Rio, and it's working...
    Keep sticking and moving,
    it worked for us last trip..

    "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."

    Can't recall, have you done downtown?
    You'd like it, as someone recently mentioned, the entire length of Freemont is less than the walk from front to back of the MGM Grand.

    (I didn't fact check, it was from front entrance to back door of pool, and I believe it)

    I’ve played and stayed downtown a few times. Not my scene but with the right company I could be swayed to play some games and eat pizza :D

    Speaking of pizza, got these beauts right before bed! Good way to wrap up a fantastic day with great company.

    You are so so sweet, thank you! You’re right, positivity does wonders. This has definitely been a great recharge. :beer:

    Good morning world! After being up till nearly 4a, I feel like I should sleep another hour before starting my day. My bed is cozy :)

    Happy Thanksgiving, VMB! I am thankful for this fabulous city, the friends I’ve made here + my friends beyond, and oh yeah - the fooood. :)

    Sounds like you're having a fun time, with wins and magnificent food. Thank you so much for the Le Cirque pictures, beginning with the truffle. Bonus points to @MCann not only for his wardrobe, but for his restaurant selection! Beautiful presentation on everything -- that chocolate ball looked so amazing -- but I have to admit I kept coming back to the foie gras (it WAS foie, right?)
