    iPhone cords and chargers are universal..so any lightning cable and adapter should work, just not micro-usb...even walgreens/cvs will sell them, i would bet...

    Lost and found will hook you up. A few years ago at Planet Hollywood I asked one of the security officers if they had a store that sold chargers and he told me to go to Lost and Found and they would have what I need. They had boxes of phone cords and chargers.

    You can find chargers all over. CVS/Walgreens. Even most of the hotel gift shop or sundry shops have a few generics in all the different connectors for sale. Not cheap though. Nothing is in the sundry shops. :)

    Have a wonderful trip!

    For those who fly WestJet the plane had the new configuration for plus seats. It was really nice they took out the middle seat that had a table on it and made the seats wider instead. Lots of leg room and even a curtain divider now at the 3rd row. New menu is crap though.

    Arrived at Cosmo using Lyft around 1pm. Of course the one time they didn't have a room ready is the day I have plans. I sat at Vesper for a bit and then rolled my luggage over to a new Heidi and Hannah machine I spotted.

    9CCDBD4B-6EF6-4411-9B08-487D7DBBDE1A.jpeg

    That occupied me for a bit and finally got the text at 2:30 that my room was ready. No need to go back to front desk as I already had my keys. Nice touch.

    6FDAC6A1-7F06-44F4-ABA4-EE8B628FE418.jpeg

    Lower floor this time not looking forward to 9am when those damn bells outside my room will start ringing but I didn't want to wait anymore and prefer the Blvd tower for closeness to strip and food in the hotel.

    Anyway quickly unpacked and ran over to PH to try for diamond Wayne Newton tickets but they were sold out. Then went to Caesars diamond lounge to meet a couple great ladies from a Vegas FB group.

    739EE8AF-8EA1-4702-ABBE-63C4C8E928BB.jpeg

    Really liked this place had to pay the RC entrance fee but totally worth it. I liked the vibe here plus free food and drinks were great. We spent hours here drinking and had the best waitress. Might have to go back and see her again.

    Walked back to Cosmo stopping to have a look at Bellagio conservatory.

    Thought I was done drinking but alas cocktail service was too good on the Cosmo floor and I hadn't had my fave raspberry Lemon drop yet.

    Then I saw what I know is going to be my machine this trip. I've always loved the Flintstones ones so I jumped for joy when I saw the large scale version (think Simpsons). Best part is I had my best ever session on a Seinfeld machine here last year 4 hours at max bet. That exact machine is now Flintstones and it did not disappoint.

    Threw in the towel at 1:30am which is like 4:30 est so almost made it 24 hours being awake LOL. Finished the night off with some secret pizza on the balcony.

    Looking forward to seeing what today brings. Oh yeah got denied at lost found for a charger but found a generic one that works right at Cosmo for not much money so all good!

    Need to register for the slot tourney and then have the VMB meet and pull tonight.

    Well yesterday got away from me. Just don't know where the time went.

    Had eggslut for breakfast love that place even with the line. It does go quick. Wish I could have said the same for secret pizza. Went for a slice after the slot pull and that took awhile.

    Group slot pull was fun no big wins but we did all get our money back!

    I also had Hattie B chicken plate earlier. Not sure what happened this time but it was dry and seemed overcooked.

    995C1C97-8822-4FF6-9BC6-1DC4CCAF22C5.jpeg Lots of slots to finish off the night. No significant wins though but I am still working on yesterday's money envelope so I guess I'm ahead LOL.

    Love the drink service at Cosmo. Here is a fav - it's a Miami Vice. Half daquarri half Pina colada. Yum.

    Guess I can't roam too far today until the tourney sessions are over. Have some shopping left to do and just need to make sure I get downtown in time for the costume contest.

    I have nothing to compare it to but I'm pretty impressed. Done first round finished near the bottom. Free drinks and food provided.

    Sausage and pretzels - Yum! They also gave everyone a cute themed apron to wear.

    Guess we'll see in the next round but I'm sure I'm out of the running. There is some kind of group prize too.

    So turns out I wasn't the only one who thought of a porn slapper for the costume contest last night. So fun to see all the people who really put in the effort. Especially loved all the Vegas Vacation characters.

    Finished off the night slotting some more. Was thrilled to see Milk bar open until 2am. Great treat to end the night.

    Got myself out of bed and down to the Henry for breakfast. Wow the French toast was amazing!

    Now a bloody Mary while I try out Farmville. One more slot session this morning then find out this afternoon if I won anything.

    Got back home late yesterday. I really could have used one more day LOL.

    Finished the slot tournament with the lowest prize possible $150 in identity play. It was a fun concept and I'm glad I did it. However, I did really feel tied to the property during the day as you had to play in various sessions. Not sure if I'd play in another one.

    I did manage to slip over to Park MGM as I wanted to see the Gaga exhibit. Not as good as the concert I had to miss but at least it was something LOL. Nice that it is free to look around.

    Walked out through Eataly to head back to Cosmo. Interesting concept I'll have to check out on a future trip. On the Record looked cool just walking by it too. Outside they are building a new pedestrian bridge across the strip.

    Ok. I also had to make a stop in the Skechers store. New shoes...
