    Just walked out of the show and it was incredible! I'm in a weird age group where the big albums in my heyday were permanent vacation and Pump, and they played little of that, but even the stuff I wasn't as familiar with was enjoyable for the most part, and the light show was incredible. If anyone in your party is prone to epileptic seizures, definitely dont see this show! Otherwise, it was pretty awesome. Still en route back to CET but I have lots of pics and video to post later. Pro tip - that cab line looked like an hour or more wait for non premium MLife members but Aria to Bellagio tram had zero wait. Take the tram and get a cab at Bellagio, or in my case walk across the street and be 'home'

    Yeah I was dumb and left $600 in the safe at The Signature in April because I usually never use a safe. I realized ~25 minutes after check out. I immediately went to the front desk, explained what I did, show my ID, got a temp key, and retrieved the money myself. No problem.

    The way Cosmo is acting, they would tell you "too fucking bad" if you forgot to empty the safe.

    Wow it has been another brutal day with the gamble. I havent even had much time to hit the casino with all the other stuff going on, but I'm down $450 on the day, all at CET, and I think I dont even have 175 TC.

    Omfg...so I might have mentioned about how the exec suite they gave us as a bedroom was the worst possible one of the four adjoining rooms? So I just tried to get in bed and turn on the TV. Here's another difference in this room and the upstairs room I've seen on YouTube. In all the videos, that was a closing bedroom with only ONE door, that had a handle on both sides. This room is one of those standard joiners with two doors, each with a handle on just one side and blanks in the middle. So I literally cant close this door without locking out my friend. And vice versa from the living room.

    So back to the issue at hand...both the living room and this bedroom have really nice 65" samsung TVs. Pictured is my view from the right side of the bed. Being the same brand and model TV, anything I do involving the remote from my side of the bed, is caught by both TVs, so because I can't shut the doors, and because they have us the only one that's immediately adjacent to the couch and TV, I cant even watch TV in bed without having the living room one pop on and do all the same shit. Again if more than one person is staying here and each wants to watch something different in the different rooms, the person in the bedroom will need to do what he or she wants while the unlucky person on the couch waits and then the living room person will have to change back to whatever he or she wants to watch, rinse and repeat every time the person in bed pushes any button on the remote. Like, what was the IQ of the person who decided to rent out a room at the second highest rate in the resort, as a two story room, then lock the customer out of upstairs and give them the worst room in the place?!?! What was the business decision there?!!? It appears it is their intent to leave it this way too, as I noticed the hallway entrance to the bedroom is permanently affixed with the same room number as the large common area's entrance next door. The other 3 adjoining rooms have separate room numbers on their respective doors.

    Annoying. But can't you just leave the door open a crack? I would hope that would solve the TV problem.

    I left my Chi flat iron in my room at Cosmo and remembered when I was at the airport. I called them and they called me back about 15 minutes later to let me know they had it and they mailed it to me. The Customer Service rep McCann was unfortunate to deal with isn't representative of the typical Cosmo experience :(. I sure hope you follow up with them @McCann.

    My husband left Oakley sunglasses and I left my favourite beach cover up hanging on the back of the bathroom door at Wynn, same trip. We called but no luck getting them back :(

    Probably, if you move furniture. I did workaround the TV problem by holding the remote as far over to the left as I could, then aiming it perpendicular to the TV and slowly turn it pressing the power button until it got to the sweet spot where only the bedroom TV got the power signal. Then because it was the only one on, everything worked as desired.

    Update: Nope. The joiner doors are spring loaded, which is probably why they have furniture jammed up against them on both sides.

    This has to be one of the most makeshift setups I’ve ever seen... hotel or otherwise. Geeeeez.

    As far as items left in the safe, they have policies posted on that. I assume it is the same for most if not all on the Strip.

    That does suck that they wouldn’t help with the shirt :( But I think it’s similar to a home insurance claim or whatever on stolen items vs he said she said? I don’t know.

    Hmm...$5 craps going again, full again. Most of the casino staff is wearing hockey sweaters this morning. Going to probably just wait and play.

    Ong first win of the day. Excellent!

    Aaand they raised it to $10. May play anyway I can handle $10, just prefer $5 so I can get fast and loose with the bets and not care.

    Oops sorry - that one was clown races and it is grouped in a bunch of old machines, I wanna say I think its between boulevard elevator and barbershop on that side. I've played it at Harrahs before as well. It's relatively low volatility and loose with the bonus free spins so I was shocked to hit the "jackpot" and go over $100 on one spin.

    Wow so lame. I won (2) 10 free game bonuses on this in HL at $5 a spin. The 20 free spins combined for 19 dead spins and one $40 hit.

    Just hit the low progressive on quarters at Cromwell again. Best win today so far. Was $79. That's the third time I've hit the progressive jackpot on one of these 2 machines and I've only run $100 or less through them lifetime. Like when that happens!

    That’s the one at Cromwell? I might have to stop in for drinks.... looks like Barbary Doggies or White Castle is on my agenda for lunch then!

    I love that game though, always done well on it at one of my locals :)
