    So final update. We went to Donnie & Marie last night. It was a great show, very glad we went despite being very tired. Ended the night slotting around Cosmo with no big wins.

    It was a wonderful birthday week and it couldn’t possibly have been better. Nice to meet other Fanatics. It wasn’t a winning trip financially but the memories made are priceless.

    Sorry @ttaylor001 but I'm going to hijack and add on to your report because I was too much of a degen to stop the shenanigans and post while I was in Vegas for my birthday bash lol. Got there on the 7th for 3 nights at Cosmo and slotted until the wee hours except for a break for some grab and go secret pizza which was just OK IMO and later a great salad from the Juice place. Had a decent win on Buffalo diamonds f 20190607_180601.jpg 20190608_172056.jpg 20190608_172241.jpg 20190608_173722.jpg 20190608_174647.jpg 20190608_180455.jpg 20190608_181426.jpg or a bit over $700 on a $6 bet but not much luck in the high limit room or on anything else. Had dinner on the 8th after meeting up with everyone at the chandelier meet. We went to Le Cirque and had the pre theater menu which was fantastic and a great value. We will definitely go again.

    I must say the Cosmo has really grown on me and all the employees I came across seemed to enjoy there job and were extremely helpful however checkout and dealing with my folio was a bit of a nightmare. This is the second time I have had room charges on my bill that I didn't do and Im sure it will get sorted like it did previously but it is a bit frustrating. To top it off I got home and I checked for new offers, coin in and out and my identity activity and saw I had my identity points redeemed for buffets, clique bar and a few other places which I never went to and on dates I was already gone so I'm not sure if my account has been compromised or why this happened again to me but like I said when my host returns from days off Im sure this will get fixed but nonetheless disappointing and a bit concerning that points are being redeemed by someone else from my account. Had a couple more decent wins and got lots of time in even though I lost my BR which I have no problem with so the gamboling front was great for me. Pool was awesome as always and breakfast at Overlook grill as well as dinner at Scarpetta was fantatic as well....I go for the spaghetti or Pisci? seafood one every trip. 20190607_185021.jpg 20190608_112100.jpg

    Day 4 of my trip took me to Palazzo for 3 nights. The casino reno looks good and the lounges were all really busy which was nice to see. First game I played there was Buffalo Diamond where max bet was only $4/spin and almost $300 in I got my first and only handpay of the trip and the slots were cold at the Venetian. Off 4k bank roll there I only got $15,226 coin in and of course as always left all my BR but not much play on it but I had fun. Had a decent meal at Sushisamba and excellent happy hour at Lavo with my usual meatball with whipped ricotta and calamari but there was one meal that stood above all and that was Wing Lei!! I've done lots of great restaurants in Vegas but this one I can't stop thinking about the flavors and entire experience. We started with shrimp spring rolls and added on to the order and they were so delicate and delicious but portion was small so probably will skip next time seeing the other 2 dishes were very generous portions and we barely finished everything on the plates. General Taos? Chicken and Beef tenderloin with garlic chips were phenomenal!! Service was flawless, complimentary deserts and the little chair for my purse were extra special touches that made the experience even more memorable!! Highly recommend and again I felt it was a great value for the $. My new favorite. Finished our trip with a massage at Canyon Ranch Spa done by Pamera which was fantastic for me since I prefer relaxation massage and I almost fell asleep (I get wired in Vegas so like to have a relaxation massage my last day to calm me down for reality back home) the Aquavana had all the rooms working and I much enjoyed it. For the ladies(or gents too) the spa store had excellent prices and I scored the cutest bathing suit for $72 only and got bath products which were a bargain...at least compared to Canada so this is one spa store I will likely buy stuff from every trip with it's uninflated pricing. Only Palzzo pool open right now and it didn't get sun until later in the day so that was a big bummer but otherwise a good stay and entire bill except spa was comped so happy camper here. Gentlemen I took a couple pool pics for you to enjoy as well 20190611_173052.jpg 20190611_173336.jpg 20190611_180209.jpg 20190611_121305.jpg 20190611_120745.jpg

    So glad to have met you even if only briefly. Will definitely have to have drinks together next time our trips cross....I love food too, so really appreciate your food porn! I am thinking on a possible fall trip, likely solo, so let me know if you are inclined to go.... :)

    I guess we'll let you join...
    Hope they can get your Identity points straightened out, @sparkydog, and hoping it didn't get compromised. Hope the machines treat you better next time too!

    Thanks @tringlomane . I just looked and all my activity history is blank so hopefully someone is working on it. For a slot player the Cosmo slots treated me ok because I got some decent coin in and tasty drinks however Venetian was a different story.
