    Shout-out to whoever edited my Pearl card thing! I thought I edited that portion out, but missed it. Yay safety :)

    OK friends! Last night was a long night when we got to Casino Royale. After White Castle, we headed to my favorite jam to play when drunk (& I wasn't that drunk yet): Britney Spears! Dude. Game was on fucking fire. We kept feeding just dollars or a $5,then cashing out with $48, $52, $74, it was nuts! Ended up leaving up at $75+ when I only brought like, 15.

    Then we cruised through Linq and played a giant Buffalo Gold with no luck. Played Buck Hunter 2 player cuz someone left $1.75 in the machine - it's all about the small wins.

    Then we walked the Strip back, this was around 3:00a, and it was deserted. I fucking loved ittttt! No one around means a smoother walk and cool pictures without annoying people getting in the way.

    My friend went up to the room to crash, I stayed down and played Sex & The City a while. Witnessed someone win a shit ton ($2,917 off a $40 bet) and they had like 31,000 points racked up on their card too. So neat to see - too bad it wasn't me!

    Also, my Uber driver from Excalibur to Royale was awesome. He used to play in punk bands, and was name-dropping some he used to play with. One of which is my favorite band ever in the world (AFI) and I just fangirled the rest of the ride. Friend had to talk for me haha, it was amazing.

    Now we're headed to the hot tub to rest our feet before exploring the day! I also pushed back my flight so I leave tomorrow afternoon instead of morning. :)

    Also view from our City Room at the end of the hall (it's soo much easier to navigate than Aria, and a short walk from the elevator!).

    Had some time at the hot tub. .. That might be my new thing, it does wonders for your legs!

    Now grabbing some hydration before Giordanos for lunch! :)

    Oh I love that Britney slot LOL. I did so well on it 2 trips ago, it robbed me last time, so the next trip should be good right? Now I have that music in my head, LOL, fun reporting.

    Before we got to Amazing Pizza Land, we swung by Bellagio Conservatory and I'm so glad we did! So many pup-pups for Chinese New Yearrrr!

    And a huge Alaskan Malamute, holy crap, haha. I was impressed with all the dog breeds, they were all so cute! Can't imagine the level of work that went in to create them all.... Amazing.

    Thank you @ardee ! It's been surprisingly great and I still have plenty of dough left to make it through the night!

    @Flowers you're very welcome! It's a gorgeous display, and the dogs were so lifelike. Some of the expressions were just perfect!

    Migrated from Bally's to Paris, where I geared up for the night ahead (Never Too Hungover? ;) paid for with TR points), and we played more Goldfish! Had a pretty decent run, and I am back up for the day! We haven't even gone shopping yet!

    Also, the scientific names for the fishies are the reason to read the rules. Has anyone read these?!? Fucking riot haha.

    Also... .How much is that puppy in the window? Oh. It has a Louie Vutton scarf on, better not ask. ;)

    It's an amazing day!

    Also found this new? variation of Wolf Run....with progressives and added bonus spins. Hmm. Base bet for those options was $0.60 as opposed to the regular $0.40. It was at Paris, but if I see it elsewhere I may have to give it a whirl...

    Wandered over to Marshall's but didn't find nearly as much cool stuff as we did at Ross yesterday (I scored some perfect fitting Levi's for $10. And some cute slip on Sketchers for $12 instead of $34 for the exact same pair at the Ross back home in San Diego....hm).

    Then we did International Cola Tasting. Yes, it is a thing, and it was actually really fun. We sampled 16 different Coca Cola products from around the world. Some were actually quite good!

    Now we're back at the Cosmo. I am relaxing for 20 more mins while my dad heads down. ..Meeting him for dinner somewhere at Bellagio. :)

    Had an amazing dinner at Lago with my dad. We had the pork focaccia for a appetizer, then Parmesan risotto and short ribs. Great pairing. The short ribs were so tender, you didn't even need a knife. Risotto was perfect.

    Tried to new Voice slot, lost $20.

    On to better things!
