    Just catching up but just want to point out that Oahu has a Yardhouse and Ulta. Just in case you wanted to cross those off your "to do" list

    Great start so far! Very well written!

    Unfortunately not, i think the only two Hawaiian breweries that distribute here are Kona and Maui.

    I have been to Kona twice, and that was a unique experience at the airport. Kona is a great place to visit for a week. So, much to do on the big island.

    Good luck on your Vegas trip right now.

    Love this trip report!! The pictures are amazing and your writing style is top notch. I have actually been to Hawaii, in Waikiki Beach, and it was absolutely beautiful. To live there, even for a short while, must be amazing. I am flying out very early Saturday morning to Vegas for 7 nights, so will be there at PH very soon!!

    Good Morning! It is Day 2 (11/21).

    First of all, I have tons of respect for all of you who do live trip reports. It is tough work to be writing, taking pictures, and, frankly, just remembering to post often.

    Thanks for going easy on me my first time. The hardest thing is to remember to take pictures of food and drink before eating and drinking them. I’ll give you what I got at least!

    After District Donuts which was delicious but an incredible sugar rush, we went to the floor of the Cosmo and got cards printed out. I had taken a client out for a meal at Scarpetto back in June but I forgot to add the transaction to my Identity membership. This was a $1200 meal and worth a ton of tier points but normally you only have 90 days to add the transaction. Well, one of the wonderful women at the Identity desk made an exception and added the meal to my Identity. I was extremely grateful.

    With newly printed cards, we dinked around on some new machines we hadn’t played before, including Buffalo Gold Revolution. No big wins bat had a great time.

    Mimosas were the drink of choice this morning. It’s fun when every round is a double.

    We were up about $200 when I got a phone call that our new room back at Planet Hollywood was ready so we headed back to move. Thankfully it was just a few doors down in the same hallway. With a much better view of the Strip this time.

    More to come!

    Thanks! Did you hear that Anheuser Busch purchased Kona? I think they were already doing a lot of distribution, so I bet distribution for Kona goes much wider now.

    The Big Island is amazing. Such a diverse place in a small geographic area. Thanks for the good luck!

    Thanks for the love! Hawaii really is amazing and we're blessed to get to be there even for a bit. I'll warm up the tables and slots for you here. And then you can bring it across the goal line :)

    Nicely done on getting Cosmo to give you identity points for the meal. That's 6000 points, enough to get you to Sterling, if not already there.

    Good start on the gambling.
     
    Hopefully third time is the charm

    LadyFox’s massage and facial was this morning, so it was a great chance to get some gamble in. $5 craps at Excalibur was... strange. But good. Bought in for $200, out for more.

    You can see how many come bets and odds I have out here:

    [​IMG]

    I like to do fun bets for the dealers. This time, I bet $1 for them on the come with me, which became a 9. Full odds ($4) and we got it eventually! Here’s the bet about to be paid off. They were happy and grateful.

    [​IMG]

    We had three really great shooters nearly back to back. Each made at least three points each and tons of my come numbers with full odds (3x4x5x here). I was in the middle of them and did not do my duty at all haha.

    When all is said and done ($200 in) here’s what we ended with:

    Drinks of choice were baileys and coffees and a mimosa. The mimosa came in two parts: a half glass of orange juice and a small single serve bottle of champagne. Pretty fun! No pic, sorry!

    I was at the exact place you were playing/standing at 10 days ago, hit a $25 hard 6 and left for the airport. Like, the exact same rack and everything. Good work!

    That’s fun you were standing there. I’d say we both made out well in that spot. What a way to end your trip with a $25 hard six!

    Thanks! I was extremely grateful for her willingness to bend the rule. You’re right, it was instant Sterling. I’ve spent and gambled so much at Cosmo the last few years without remembering to use my card. No longer!
