    Hello!

    I booked this trip a while ago and was playing it by ear on whether I would go or not. But I need a break from reality and this works for my schedule so here I am! My flight was early (for me) so I spent last night in the hotel at the orlando airport. It was only $126.00 and you literally take the elevator down in the morning and you are at security. Much better than stressing about getting there in the morning.

    I’m solo and normally eat at the bar, so this will be a little different for me. I booked dinner reservations for three nights (Lago, Spago and Carbone and will figure something out for tomorrow, I normally just wing it and eat what I want that particular evening.

    tomorrow I have a chair booked at the Cypress Pool. Will be interesting with the whole mask thing...but I’m planning on being under an umbrella so not worried about a mask tan line.

    The hand washing stations here are nice. I think earlier reports were on pong with the care that MGM took to reopen,

    One new thing that wasn’t here my last trip and most likely has nothing to do with Covid - They now have ticket machines so you can punch your own sports tickets and they have one right off the main hotel walkway by players club versus all of this being back in the sports book, I made a ticket for some basketball games tonight mainly just to use the machine.

    I’ll try to update periodically....I am trying to maximize my slot playing to utilize the 5x points that ends tomorrow.

    had a few good hits on Billions themed mighty cash machine...

    I will say this...I normally play a lot of video poker at the sports book. It looks so sad empty. I struggled a bit drinking a beer while slotting but I’m sure I will ge used to it? Off to shower and fix myself up.

    I hope you have a fun trip! Some good hits to start!

    Ron ended up buying beer at Walgreens and drinking it in the room before bed. Easier than at the machines.

    Yay! Let me know how the solo dining goes. I usually love eating at the bar but since that’s not an option I’m not sure what I’ll do in a few weeks. I always feel they hate women dining alone at a table.

    Good luck!!!

    Thanks! I have a cold bottle of wine up here and might enjoy that in the room rather than taking it downstairs with me. I’ll adjust!

    Hope you're having a wonderful trip thus far. Did you lose power at Bellagio last night? I saw a story of an electrical transformer blowing up and wondered if it affected the Strip.

    I didn’t Notice a power outage but I was in bed by 1:30 or so.

    I realized last night when unpacking that I didn’t pack the “nice” jeans I planned to bring but I did throw in what I call my “fancy pants” which are simple black stretch pants. Thank goodness I put them in the suitcase. Not sure it really matters as I saw several people going into dinner that were wearing whatever they put on that morning when they rolled out of bed! The black pants will be going to dinner another few times this trips.

    I gambled after dinner for about 4 hours which is probably as we all do about an hour too long. I was still trying to maximize points. Last time I looked, I was at 21,000 points with the 5X multiplier.

    I don’t take food pictures...but did take a picture of my drink at Lago. I had two of these! Serrano Boulevardier.

    Julian Serrano was in the restaurant. I’ve seen him there before. I like that he is so hands on.
    I had a caprese burrata salad and risotto with shrimp and lobster. It was all good and I was satisfied but not stuffed. It was fine on my own but it was a table on the outskirts of the dining room. With the capacity restrictions, they really were using every available table. I enjoyed dinner and didn’t feel out if place, but I will definitely go back to bar top dining when they reopen.

    I didn’t take a lot of pictures last night but I payed a wonder 4 tower game for a long time. No great hits but many over $100 that came frequently enough that I was max betting by the end.

    I’m off to get a little something for breakfast and take care of something for work before the pool.

    Wife and I are headed out for 4 nights on August 5th. Staying at Bellagio as well how are the crowds? Do you have to reserve a spot at the pool or is it first come first serve?

    The cypress pool I did reserve a spot. It was $125.00 and it was money well spent. I did the reservation in advance, but I think you could possibly walk up (obviously depends on the day of the week). The other pools seemed to have spots for people as they arrived.

    Finally got my work things settled this morning and got to pool around 11:30.

    It was definitely different keeping your mask on when not in the pool. I forgot almost every time I sat down in the chair again after getting in the pool. They have many people walking around that will remind you! I thought I was doing pretty good but I was gently reminded several times. I had two cucumber flavored drinks and a few raspberry lemonade Frozen drinks.

    showered now and will hit the slots soon!
