    Those pics of your awesomeness at Mizumi made me really “homesick” for Vegas.

    Also, kudos on your massive tally of Royals. :clap::clap::clap: Even though they’re on the deuces game it’s still gotta be fun to see how many you can rack up. Congrats on the four deuces, definitely “Boom!!-worthy”.

    Great TR…..can’t wait to see what’s coming next!!

    Calling it an early night was definitely the right decision. I still had some trouble actually getting to sleep as early as I’d like, but I feel so much better this morning than I did yesterday morning. I’m going to miss this view.

    Pro tip.....turn off all the lights including the bathroom one and snap away for better night time pics. But you may know this.

    Looks like you got a Resort Room with dual vanities which is my favorite free upgrade. If you could please post some pics of the slot floor at PHO since so TR’s hint that they have removed a lot of slots.

    Checked out of Palazzo and stopped for lunch at a new to me dim sum spot in Chinatown. New Asia BBQ. I love me some dim sum - especially when they actually push the carts around. I have no problem dining alone - but dim sum really is better with a group so you can try all the things! I stuck with three dishes - sui mai, rice dumplings, and tofu with shrimp. All were very good and I would have liked to try even more but I couldn’t even finish those three. Will definitely be back - hopefully with a large group next time.

    The tea tasted so good. And then I realized that I haven’t had coffee all week. No wonder I’ve been tired. I’m going through caffeine withdrawal on top of the alcohol consumption, overeating, sleep deprivation, and general dehydration. Googled coffee shop nearby and picked the first one that wasn’t a chain.

    Luckily despite the sign saying open, the door was locked. Maybe it was lunch break for workers. But serendipitous because they next place was Take it Easy and the coffee is top notch. It’s in the same complex as Partage and Golden Tiki, but kind of hidden down one side. The empanadas sound intriguing, but I’m stuffed so settled for an amazingly good iced latte.

    @eliza, you’re filling in all of the places I will have to eat on my upcoming trip. How will I ever get through my 3 page list of restaurants I want to try when I keep reading good stuff like this?
     
    How could I say no?

    Your concise assessment is exactly how I feel about the place. No reason to go back ever again, especially with it being so out of the way. I don't feel it did much to differentiate itself among its similarly priced competitors. I just did not dig it.

    Right? Every meal its a struggle between do I go somewhere I already know I love or do I go to one of the places on my every growing list of places to try.

    Finished up with work. Took a quick nap. Now over at Chandelier Bar having the pinkest of drinks and winning $60 on VP. Got one drink ticket and thought I could use it for a post-dinner cocktail - didn’t realize they expire in 2 hours. Oops.

    I’m so looking forward to é. It wouldn’t surprise me if I fall totally off the board until tomorrow - but I’ll report back on the experience at some point.

    There’s an empty restaurant space on the third floor. Is this where Milos used to be?

    Just caught up on the last few days. Looks like a fabulous trip so far, other than the work part. Hoping to see some big hits over the next days in Vegas. Counting down for my trip in a couple weeks so leave some money downtown.
     
    Maybe a Pool Day?
