    Okay so recap. Was starving and wanted to try RiRa Irish Pub in the MB Shop are. Fish and chips so good. Pretty empty. No bar top seating. So it’s interesting. They have bar tops which they slide up flush with bar so you can sit but not “facing bar”. If that makes any sense lol.

    Also free Fiji and Keurig in room which is a huge win

    Now I’m at Strip Steak. Pretty quiet. Only a few restaurants open. Breaks my heart for these employees. Remembering to be extra generous.

    Here is phot of main part of menu and their complimentary truffle fries which are so frickin good.

    Took a pic and tried to show in background what I mean about the bar tops. I’m sitting at a bar top against wall. [​IMG]

    Morning Vegas. Ugh after Strip Steak I had major food coma. It was much busier in casino. Had zero luck and wasn’t feeling so went to room around 10:00 and totally crashed.
    Strip Steak was delicious. The server recommended the whip potato purée duo one plain and other with lobster. To be honest wasn’t a fan of the lobster one. It’s like the two don’t go together. But the plain was amaze balls.

    Try it out some time. Tender & flavorful. Ugly piece of meat but everyone I’ve recommended it to, loved it.

    Well will keep going. Not sure if anyone is reading as I’m a newbie but hopefully giving some tips.
    Went to Cosmo after brunch and after too much Rose left my phone in the bathroom and panicked. Could not find it anywhere. The sweetest gal stuck by my side and let me use her phone to keep calling. Was in tears like a little girl. Thank the lord after four phone calls a lady answered and found my phone.
    Was so worried. Not about the phone itself but I am solo. What the fuck would’ve I have done.
    So back to MB and the lounge and a stiff damn drink.
    Had reservations at Carbone but too tired to taxi again. So Strip Steak again.
    Feel like I’m talking to myself but determined to finish this TR

    I hope this isn't too nosy - if so, forgive the interruption...but what is your typical "coin-in" on a trip. The MB suite is very, very nice.

    Honestly I have not a clue. I usually stay at the Bellagio and never get a suite. Just a fountain view resort room. I happened to get an email from a host from MB who offered it. I’m platinum and my tier points are 600k. Scary

    We are reading! Keep it up! Thanks for all the pics and words. I’m at home but would rather be in Vegas! Trip reports help keep me in the loop of all that is Vegas.

    600k tier points is a lot. You’ll always get that penthouse at that level at MB. It’s a great place to be during (a normal) March Madness.

    Free drinks and games to watch in the Penthouse Lounge!

    Thanks for taking the time to update as you go. That Mandalay suite is huge and VERY nice, and the food looks delicious.
