    Gym was empty the whole time we were there.

    The best kind of gym is an empty gym, so no one can see us do our wimpy workouts.

    Tomorrow we need to get packed up for the trip back to Utah on Thursday. We'll probably rely on Eataly for food. V wants to fiddle on his radios, and I will give one last chance on the slots.

    I can't believe we'll be back in less than a week with the kids. Going to need to recharge quickly to give it another go round. LOL.

    Goodnight, VMB!

    Good morning!

    Going to drag myself out of bed. Last full day and want to call it an early night tonight. Need to do a lot of packing and organizing of the mammoth load of stuff we brought.

    Charges haven't been credited to my MLIFE account, so need to deal with that too.

    Me too. I can see it now, it's gonna be just like last summer. I fell in love with this girl at the Fotomat, I bought $40 worth of fucking film and I didn't even talk to her. I don't even own a camera.

    Did a morning walk towards Bellagio. Currently stopped at Cosmo losing on Buffalo Diamond and waiting for the coffee I ordered to cool.

    Came on over to Bellagio after losing around $150 at Cosmo.

    20210714_092644.jpg

    Third spin in, I hit this.

    20210714_101141.jpg

    Had a few +5 game retriggers and ended with this.

    20210714_094554.jpg

    Definitely helped put me back in the game. Bouncing around low betting now. Losing so far, but at least I've got some leeway. Waiting on a Bloody Mary. V back at the room fiddling on radios.

    Holding my own at Bellagio, and the Bloody Mary is the best floor one I've had so far.

    I kept hearing a kid screaming and whining. It sounded awfully close. Turned around and these parents are on each side of a 3 or 4 year old who is sitting in the chair pressing the slot buttons. :eek:

    Seriously??? Guess Bellagio wouldn't pay out if the kid hit a jackpot. LOL.

    Security shooed them off before I could take a picture. Damndest thing!

    Went briefly to Cromwell and super fast lost $45. Realized I forgot to put sunscreen on my arms and legs, so decided to head back to the room. My skin does not handle the sun well.

    Got back and just chilled for a bit. I've got a tad over $200 more than I left with this morning. V was having room drinks and playing on his radios when I got there.

    Went down and got a folio printout of my charges. All week, I've hovered around 13,000 MLIFE Tier Credits despite all the room charges. Went to the MLIFE desk with some receipts and the folio and now I'm at 57,622. Our stay in a few days at Delano will get us to 75,000 so we can remain Gold. My playing doesn't keep us Gold, my spending does. LOL. I just care about it for the valet parking privilege.

    We're now at Il Fornaio at NYNY for a late lunch. First food we've had today.

    20210714_141753.jpg

    20210714_141131.jpg
    Long Island Iced Tea for E and Gin & Tonic for V.

    We split all the food below.

    20210714_141144.jpg
    Bread with Oil & Vinegar - $2 charge.

    20210714_141418.jpg
    Caesar Salad

    20210714_142958.jpg
    Pasta Alla Vodka

    Going to play some slots and get some drinks after lunch.

    Back in the room fixing some room drinks. Going to do a pocket/purse/safe dump to see how it all ended.

    20210714_181957.jpg
    We still have plenty of booze and mixers to take to Delano on Monday when we return.

    Need to do a lot of packing up. I would like to get out of here early. If we get hungry later, we're going to grab something from Eataly. I canceled Best Friend.

    Here are some pictures from NYNY down to Bellagio.

    20210714_153511.jpg
    NYNY - Did well on this the other day.

    20210714_155640.jpg
    Leaving NYNY, then saw this and had to play it. We got the Gadget Bonus.

    20210714_170827.jpg
    Nary an Original Walking Dead machine to be found. I did find a WD2 at Cosmo. Hit one bonus, but not much else.

    More Bellagio Conservatory shots.

    20210714_173743.jpg
    We have that end of the trip puffy look. LOL.

    My bed accounting is done!

    20210714_184959.jpg

    Survey says....

    I brought $3,653 cash and left with $2,683.42 for a loss/spend of $969.58 for the week. Tips and gambling were mixed together, but I probably tipped around $150. It could have been a lot worse!

    I'm really not planning to gamble much next week when we come with the girls. We'll do a brief pass through Las Vegas in October, and then we'll be back for 8 nights in December at Christmas. I will be saving my pennies for that December trip.

    I've clocked 21,010 steps since this morning. Not sure if I'll go to the gym tonight or not. Guess we'll see how stuffed I feel from Eataly.

    Ugh, I hate packing. I need to get much better at bringing less.

    I need to add that we have around $2k in charges for our stay, meals, purchases, etc. It will take me longer to figure out that final tally, since not everything was a room charge.

    Finishing up a tad of the room wine that was left and some snack mix we brought.

    20210714_195851.jpg

    I forgot to give info on V's radio battery.

    20210714_200111.jpg

    It basically is a sealed lithium battery, housed in a case that provides different charging ports. The battery and case were purchased separately, but both from Gigaparts. V also had to buy a connection wire for the battery.

    20210714_200124.jpg

    The more I look at his stuff, the more I would think he was a terrorist if I were housekeeping.

    Headed to Eataly for some more Italian grub and maybe some dessert.

    20210714_200800.jpg
    Beautiful, dusky Vegas.

    If you haven't had a chance, check out @Retrobabble's trip report. Such wonderful history in it! I'm a sucker for retro stuff too. So glad to see Mr. @ardee joined in for a few days also!

    Sounds like so many of us will be here at Christmas too! :santa:
