    Yes he knows, but he is a creature of habit!

    That bar has been very mean so far....

    Ok, updates!

    Let's get this outta the way first... here ya go, @irishdave

    Don't worry, you'll get fresh, new ones from me in April!
    I used them on Fiji waters for the room at Cosmo. Got Blvd tower, 58th floor Terrace Studio. No fountain view, but we get lots of warm sun!

    .
    A weird thing I noticed is the safety glass on the terrace... the left half is clear, yet the right half has dots. Odd...

    We played at Chandelier for about 3 hrs while we waited for the room to be ready. I lost (gulp!) $500 on VP during that time. Could not find a quad, argh!! Walked away from the bar in a daze, and went to get room keys. Stopped at a slot (on the way back to the bar to get hubs), put in a hundo, and was down to 5 bucks when I hit the bonus.
    Got my $500 back, yay!!!!!

    Cashed that ticket, set up our room, and now we're headed downtown for Halloween shenanigans!

    Congrats to the husband on the royal. Nice pics of Fremont. Boo on the Astros not winning the series. I wasn’t really following - working too much to get into any sports this year. But always love my Texas teams. Go Cowboys & Texans.

    yay to hubby on the Royal! The past two years we were on Fremont St for Halloween. Funnily enough, the outfits were pretty similar the next few days we were downtown as well!! Have fun...…..

    Another beautiful Vegas morning! We both slept in after staying up too damn late, but hey, why not? I think we spent most of hubs Royal as well as a bunch of my cash.... oops!! Went wild, had no more luck, but lots of fun!

    We will have to take it easy on the gambol today, unless we hit decent right away. No real plans.

    It was ridiculous on Fremont St last night!!! Just a mad crush of people everywhere, plus tons of costumes... I couldn't keep up with the pics. Even after returning to Cosmo, we saw lots more costumes but got lazy with the pics. Overall we had a great time!!!

    My apologies for not keeping up with this TR!! We are home now but I will recap to the best of my recollection

    So, it was Friday, after a crazy Halloween night. We slept in pretty late and by the time we were up and ready for the day, it was way past the cut-off time for most places to be serving breakfast. We decided to walk over to Planet Ho and get Earl of Sandwich, but when we got across the bridge and headed down the escalator, we saw some people eating eggs at PBR. Hey, maybe they serve breaky all day?? Went to check it out, and yes, they do!

    .
    Bellies full, we walked back to Cosmo to get the rental and head back downtown. Gave the car up to valet at MSS and went inside to play awhile. Ran into @bubbakitty and bubbette kitty playing MY machines (that's why you two got all those quads, I tell ya! ). We had a short but nice hello chat, and then we made our way to the bar to say hello to Jose. I played some VP here and there while hubs smoked his cigar, but just couldn't find any quad love. Eventually we got a little hungry, so we went and got a table at Triple 7 pub to use some of my points on some grub.

    Tummies full once again, we headed outside to the Plaza so I could take another stab at the Royal progressive at the bar (played a bit yesterday but no luck). Found our seats, and no one had hit it yet!

    .
    A few 20 dolla bills from both of us, but yet again no quad love. I was getting frustrated by the lack of 4oaks, and hubs wanted to walk around Fremont St. I told him to go ahead, and that I was going to take 1 more $20 and find a stand-alone machine to slow play on. I found a bank of VP machines and sat on the end. It wouldn't take my money, so I moved over one spot. I started playing, and I kept getting hands (full houses, flushes) to keep me playing. After about 30 minutes, hubs finds me, satisfied with his walk. I told him that I'd actually been playing on the same $20 this whole time, no quads but everything else. He said that really hadn't happened yet this entire trip and I agreed. Playing while talking, I got yet another hand that I reflexively held 2 matching high cards on, hit draw, and we were both stunned when this popped up!!

    The same suit as hubby's Royal from yesterday! Wow!
