    Day 5:

    Started the day with breakfast at La Salsa Cantina in the Miracle Mile Shops. Love going there for their $4.79 breakfast deal. After breakfast we hit up the CP pool. The line wasn't bad, we waited maybe 10 mins and it was around 1pm.

    We also spent way too much on a drink at the pool...but it looked too cool, lol.

    And since we don't waste things...here is the aftermath of the drink.

    After that we took our friends to Frement Street. Did some casino hopping and people watching. The boys got super excited cause they saw the "DeezNuts" guy.

    The new screen looks really nice. Bummed they didn't have any live music, but was still a good time.

    We had dinner at Tony Romas for their $11.99 steak and lobster deal. For the price it wasn't bad.

    We then tried to go on the zipline, bit should have bought our tickets in advance as they had sold out for the day. So we did a little more walking. I embarrassed my friend at the Chippendales booth, and we went back to CP.

    Day 6:

    We started the day heading over to Vdara to use one of our myVegas offers. Once we finally got to Vdara though the concierge where we needed to get the vouchers was closed. We could of gone back to Aria and got things sorted out, but hangry feelings trumped that. So we had breakfast at the Market Cafe and then continued south. We stopped at NYNY and used our rollercoaster vouchers. I had never done it before in all the times I've been here. It was fun going with friends. Chris sat it out though. Apparently coasters are NOPE, but skydiving isn't, lol.

    After that we continued south some more to Mandalay Bay to visit the shark reef. Chris and I have been probably 3 times, so I didn't really get any pictures (sorry). But our friends loved it.

    We then continued further south via Uber to SouthPoint. Chris and I have been there 3-4 times for conventions and always enjoy it. I played some $5 BJ and ended up about $7. We went to the buffet for dinner. Cost was $19 for club members and dinner included prime rib. Their buffet set up was cafeteria style. You were required to wear your mask when going up to get food. You would go to the different stations and an associate would serve you portions of what you wanted.

    After dinner Chris and I sat down at a PaiGow table. I couldn't get dealt anything good it seemed. Tried different spaces and no luck. Chris however was doing well and was able to leave the table even after a few hours. It was a fun table though. We talked with one dealer about our travels to Hong Kong and other trips. Once we were done there we noticed it was almost time for the midnight deals in the cafe...so why not. Went to the cafe for cheap steak and eggs and other options.

    We then went back to CP and decided to call it a night. Not a great gambling day, but a fun day. We have one more full day here so we will see what happens then.

    It pays to be nice. Such a simple lesson people seem to forget. Great report, thanks for sharing!

    Day 7:

    We decided to divide and conquer. Our friends wanted to go and see the Hunger Games exhibit at MGM so they did that. They really enjoyed it. Chris and I relaxed a bit in the room before heading out. Stopped and played some Bubble Craps which was not nice. We then went and grabbed lunch at Blondies at Miracle Mile Shops for their $5.99 lunch specials. Food wasn't bad for a cheap lunch. After that we went to Flamingo to play some PaiGow. Nothing exciting. No big wins.

    One of our buddies that live in Cali came out to hang with us. He met us at Flamingo and then we went to Fremont for some cheaper tables. We played at Four Queens some. Played PaiGow and Craps. They did have $5 tables when we were there in the evening. We then bounced around a little until we were hungry. Our buddy wanted to try Heart Attack Grill so we went there with him. We have done it before. No one got spanked, we were all good and finished our meals. Our buddy did get a IV bag with Merlot.

    After dinner we met up with M and D at Binions. Binions had LOTS of $5 black jack tables. I think there was $5 craps. We played some $10 faceup PaiGow. Didn't do bad there and left ahead $25.

    About midnight we decided to head back to the hotel since we would need to leave at 7am to make it to the airport for our flight. We did make a pit stop though at Tacos El Gordo. I didn't have any, but everyone else did and said it was really good. We then went back to CP and said bye to our Cali buddy.

    We are now sitting at the airport waiting on our flight which has been delayed about 1.5 hours. We were able to get us all moved to exit row again though!

    All in all, it was a really fun trip. Our friends had a great time and can't wait to come again when more things are open. We are coming home with at least a little money too! Wearing the masks all the time was kinda a pain, but not the absolute worst. Everyone was really good about wearing them. And all casinos seemed to be enforcing it well. Hoping a little more will be opened up for my Sept trip, but not expecting too much. Now it's time to return to real life and work.
