    So it took me quite a long time to get over my beloved Thunder choking to the Dubs. I had a trip planned to Cleveland to watch them in the Finals during our anniversary. Yes, my wife is that cool. It was not meant to be. So consolation prize is a trip to Vegas for our anniversary. I'm going to do updates for restaurant week meals we are doing on this trip.

    Have Charlie Palmer Steak, China Poblano, Bazaar Meats and Hakkasan planned for restaurant week meals. Will take photos in case anyone wants to see.

    Got in last night. Flight delayed. Straight to Charlie Palmer Steak. $50 for 3 course with unlimited wine pairing.

    Yay- a ballagio trip report! Love the idea of attending restaurant week- really looking forward to the food porn! Heard good things about Charlie Palmer- food looks good, did you enjoy it? Great deal for $50 with unlimited wine!

    Interested to also get your take on Bazaar Meats, had a friend who said it was one of the best meals she ever had, but the menu frightens me.:eek:

    Have fun, good luck, and eat well!

    Don't expect too much out of this report. I was only going to post food pics from restaurant week in case anyone wanted them for reference for future years. This is an anniversary trip so gambling won't be the focus. I told the host to expect a low play and I would pay for the room if he needs. No big deal.

    Charlie Palmer was a great value. Food was good. Perfectly cooked. The only complaint was the lobster was a frozen one and not live. But what do you expect for $50 with wine.

    Will post the 3-4 other restaurant week meals. As for not gambling, I won't almost $2k at Mandalay after 15 minutes. Here was one of the wins.

    Checked into Cosmo and went downhill. Lost all of my winnings from Mandalay. Proceeded to go on tilt and lost $3k of my BR. So much for not gambling. No bonuses. Proceeded to just lose without any wins. I think I am officially over gambling at Cosmo. Their HL slots are too tight. Fortunately, checking into VP today. Hopefully it will go better.

    Well glad you got the HP to finance some of that loss! Fingers crossed on the conversion of freeplay at V/P!

    Looking forward to next dinner pics- enjoy!

    Lunch was at China Poblano. $30 with $16 wine pairing.

    Lychee sour.

    Spicy mango margarita.

    Drinks were very small. Not worth it. Food was good. Solid B. Value was a C. Service was Fail. Food took forever even though they weren't busy. My taco came out first. 15 minutes later they try to clear the table for dessert but still had not brought my wife's fried rice. Sticky rice mango was highlight.

    Wife sleeping on balcony right now while I got back a little over half of last night's bloodbath. Decided to gamble after lunch. Hit these two almost within 6 spins of each other. The best part was the first one was on FP. Shutting down Cosmo gambling now. Only down $1k. Gonna go pack and head over to VP. Fortunately got late check out so not rushed.

    Right. I tried left. Got a kick in the ass last night and tonight. Somebody hit $33.5k on a $25 machine at PH. Don't know when but it was on display when I was there yesterday. I know it wasn't me. It was one of the machines I play and was headed to put some money into it. Guess not after the hit.

    Most of us like the right one. I've seen the left one dry for ages.

    Ended up giving the smaller hit to the wife to say happy anniversary.

    Went to Venetian. Nothing there. My FP from tourney is now down to $700. Hoping to hit something with it again. Went back to Palazzo. Good call.
