    Got back from Vegas last night and realized on the flight home that I had not yet posted my 2016 pictorial review. So here it is. Don't think I have pics form every trip I took last year, but there are enough to give you an idea of the fun that was had ....

    The Super Bowl [arty at aria was the first big event I went to last year Aria SB Party.jpg
    Also got a few glimpses of the year of monkey festivities
    Dragons.jpg
    Money Tree.jpg
    And of course I went to Bellagio to see what the conservatory did to celebrate the event
    Garden House.jpg
    Good Luck.jpg
    Monkey Tree.jpg
    Springtime brought pool time. Have always loved the Bellagio pools
    Bellagio Pool Fountain.jpg

    Bellagio View.jpg
    And the Bellagio at night

    The High Roller looks good at night too
    Big Wheel.jpg
    The Strip at night form my room at Cosmo
    Bright Lights Big City.jpg
    My stay at Cosmo also gave me a chance to check out the Marquee day club
    Cabana View.jpg
    Marquee.jpg
    Marquee Waterfall.jpg
    I love walking the Strip and taking pics. That never gets old for me. And here's one I liked of Encore

    And since it was a cloudy day, I decided to hit the forum shops for some eternal clear sky

    Then some more night time pics
    Light Circle.jpg
    Linq Tower.jpg
    Orange Swirl.jpg
    Paris Night.jpg
    Strip at Night.jpg
    A nice stroll through the Venetian/Palazzo

    Venetian Ceiling.jpg
    Chihuly never gets old
    Sparkle Horse.jpg
    Til next time Vegas
    Come Back Soon.jpg
    And next time was just a few months later
    Aria Tower.jpg
    Bamboo Pool at Night.jpg
    The summer trips included hikes near lake mead, including the old train caves
    Bat Cave.jpg
    Kevin in Tunnel.jpg
    A trip up to Mt. Charlseton
    Charlseton Road.jpg
    And a hike up Lone Mountain
    Lone Mtn.jpg
    There was also plenty of chip porn throughout the summer
    Chip Porn.jpg
    Cosmo Chip Porn.jpg
    Which is good because I needed those chips to pay off my loan shark
    Cash Kitty.jpg
    Cash Money Kitty.jpg
    Not as many pics form my fall trips, but there are a few
    Conservatory.jpg
    Electric Autumn.jpg
    And ended the vegas year watching my Cats from the Cosmo box win a huge game
    About to Tip.jpg
    Hope you enjoyed!

    Thanks for the pics. Where does Aria hold their SB party? I've never been to the club there, I assume that's where it is?

    The party I went to the past two years was in their convention center space. Last year they also did a smaller party in the old Zarkana theater

    Thanks! When the gf moved in a while back with her cats, I insisted on soft paws for the sake of my furniture. He got hot pink because we thought it was funny. Now, I think he has a silvery glitter set

    Its an awesome space for the SB party. I am trying out the Cosmo party this year, but I kinda wish I had done Aria again. Hopefully I feel differently in two weeks

    I'm not a big enough player to get an invite to their party. Maybe someday.

    I see.

    I was trying to wrap my head around the amount of patience - and pain tolerance - one would need to possess to paint a cat's claws!
