    Oh my gosh, I’ve never played that Heidi game and now I know I never will. That song is frickin’ annoying.

    Oh my gosh, I am having such mixed emotions at your report. Sooooo happy you are having such a magical time, but getting more and more annoyed with my flop of a last trip. I spent more at my mid-tier mlife place and enjoyed it so much less than Cosmo or Aria (or I'd expect Wynn!). I didn't find the food I wanted (so I pretty much ate nothing, like a slice of pizza a day as all the options annoyed me) , so I acted like a sulky teenager and played, slept in and lived on cocktails and slots. (OK, that's not a teenager, unless a naughty one!) I did lose 3 pounds though, who said Vegas can't be good, clean living :whistle:

    Your trip report is showing me why I came back pouty from my last trip.... I was missing the amazing food and ambiance that makes Vegas my happy land!

    So @ardee Dynamic Duo, please also have extra delicious food, and enjoy an extra decadent room for me too....your report has made me hungry for MY Vegas again, and I have learned, no more straying from my favorite haunts... Period! And next time, I will follow the @ardee's expert path to revelery and sensory bliss!

    Just a note on our playing at Cosmo today, @Multifarious5.
    Something glaringly noticeable I've never seen before was the condition of the casino slot areas.

    It may be due to a lot of entertainment events, conventions and stuff like Duran Duran concerts over the weekend, but my lord. Ashtrays overflowing with cigarette butts and the discarded empty packs, carry-away coffee cups everywhere, and a general look of the slot and VP areas not having been cleaned.

    We arrived there a little before noon and left close to about 3:30 pm or so. Cocktail service was still good and I saw a couple of folks getting hand pays. Handpays are quick and efficient there with the Jackpot Express machines they use to print out your tax info and give you your handpays quickly.

    Customer service and friendliness is still something I appreciate there. Won't stop us from going back unless I see a pattern happening.
    They have a great selection of slots. I think @luck.ofthe.draw will be there soon for a visit. I expect she'd notice and will let us know what she thinks.
    The slot selections (along with the Cosmo and Raspberry lemon drop cocktails one can order on the casino floor ;)) can't be beat for what I like to play so I'll just keep an eye on how things go in the coming months.

    Thanks for your kind words, friend. I hope your next trip is epic and you knock it out of the park with some good times and great wins. :beer:

    You bet your ass I'll let you know what I think, @ardee !

    ....oh. Oh wait, you were referring to The Cosmo.
    Yeah I'll let you know what I think there too! :p I chalk up all the ashtray cigarette bullshit to an influx of crowds, Labor Day holiday, Duran Duran show (ffff I missed 'em AGAIN!),and just bullshit. I'm sure it'll be fabulous by like, tomorrow, or by next Weds when I get there. :rolleyes:

    Have a wonderful rest of your time and pick it up with those food pictures!!!!! We are hungry followers over here!!! :feedme:

    Yikes, that really bugs me when places spillover like that. BUT I am willing to bet it's a fluke, they're usually pretty good on that stuff, and happy to hear you still see lots of handies!

    On next trip, I have no concerns, it'll be great, I know where my home is now!

    But onto the most important part of the TR, Quality time. THAT is what is important, not the bling, not the food, not the great rooms, it's the amazing bond you have with your busband and best friend (cover his ears). Vegas is fun, but expendable and replaceable. A life long match and friend? Now THAT is the jackpot!

    Have a great trip my amazing friend, and happy, HAPPY anniversary! (PS I hope you took the bigger piece of steak. I am generous on all, except meat! The sacrifices of true love do not extend to a truly great cut of meat, and I know @thecarve would agree! )
