    I just don't like overdone fries. And that was also my experience there. It's a small sample size, obv.

    Finally catching up on all of the trip reports. It looks like you are having a blast!

    Nice call on staying at MGM Grand. You saved yourself a ton of hassle. Also - very nice score on the upgrade! The West Wing room would have been a downer.

    For the concert run, MGM Grand was THE CALL for us, especially given how health/cold issues reared it’s ugly head. We were actually able to still enjoy and maximize the weekend here - being able to make meetups and shows - by only having to go downstairs. There’s been a few “clunks” in the MGM “program” but minor, especially since we paid attention to reviews and knew in advance of what could be coming. The convenience of being here far outweighed any minor issues.

    We were also booked for Grand King, so the cost of failing on that upgrade wasn’t as great as it would be with West Wing, but that said I knew full well that even if it was SEMA week I wouldn’t get an upgrade if I didn’t ask.

    So I’m out at the MGM Grand port cochere enjoying a morning vape and coffee while my wife gets extra rest. Today, the bus moves to Cosmo - thank Jah I booked this until Monday AM - I can leave and check in to Cosmo on an easier, more convenient basis. No sweating late check out key issues (OMG the desk is the busiest I’ve seen all weekend) - we can leave when more convenient for Cosmo and so she can get more rest.

    Sometimes research bears real fruit. Today is such a day.....

    Went to China Pablano after the flower run last night - OMG is that place tasty:D Was going to come back upstairs and grab the phone but never made it.... LOL. I’m like a dog in a sea of fire hydrants in this place - can’t figure out where to go next but it all sounds good...

    Great report. Glad you’re feeling better. Agree on China Poblano-tasty and reasonably priced I thought. Only bad mark-no ambers but the Modelo was a decent substitute.
     
    Can’t wait to go back!!

    Yeah, we’ve been rolling sans alcohol so that’s not been much of a consideration, but I mentioned to my wife that some spicy flavor would open the nasal passages a bit. Worked like a charm - in addition to being not too spicy/hot, but a wonderful palette of flavors and subtleties that displayed why this place gets such raves.
