    Oh please keep posting, following along is helping me pass the time until I get there Sunday afternoon. Pics of those hand pays you will soon get would build the excitement even more. Not sure I'll be visiting any pools though.

    Gotta hand it to you being at the pool. I just saw a post on Facebook from Red Rock. Appears to be snowing . . . :)

    I think the VP pool deck is the nicest on the strip. Really love that resort...hate the casino.

    @crystal let's see those hand pays, keep it going, you've got another day or so to win big!

    No big wins. Met up with @BFF and played a bit of video poker before going to Mastros for dinner. Btw we went to the wicked spoon barfet and it was terrible this morning. Food had been sitting at stations for a while and honestly if I was a paying customer at $45 I would have been wanting a refund. Two parties around us asked for the manager and complained...I thought it couldn't be that bad but it was. Pics aren't loading so Ill post them in the morning. Thanks everyone for following along.

Still hanging in there on the slots, forgot to take pics of wins but no handys to report.

    Surprising to hear about wicked spoon. I thought it was hard to fuck up breakfast.

    Wicked Spoon could be fine 99% of the time and this happened during the other 1%. I’ve been several times and the food is good. It’s not really fair to pass judgement on a one off exception.

    I popped the capillaries in my one eye fro. Eye strain so today wasnt the most productive. Did a tonne of shopping and had a wonderful meal at scarpetta but no slot big wins but not for lack of trying.

    Yes @bebe i typically play where I stay except I'll donk a hundred here and there when Im out and about touring. The slots were brutal last night but I came home with a small bit of my bank roll left...just under $600 so thats great seeing I usually go bust. So many bonuses so great time on slots! I saw someone get a $10k hand pay on walking dead $3.75 bet had a full screen of wilds and 10x on last reel so I was happy for the lady. Went for a walk before heading to airport and got a couple picks of eataly at Park Mgm 20181229_092729.jpg 20181229_092643.jpg 20181229_092654.jpg 20181229_092639.jpg 20181229_092729.jpg 20181229_092643.jpg 20181229_092654.jpg 20181229_092639.jpg

    Goodbye Las Vegas, I won't be back until June because next trip is Grand Luxxe at Nuevo vallarta. I made an agreement that once a year we can do a non Vegas trip so that is where he chose. Happy New Year to everyone and thanks for following

    Thanks for the TR crystal, hoped it’d be a winning trip but coming back with $ is always a good thing.
    Happy New Year and welcome back to the rain, thankfully I’m escaping it for a couple of days.

    Wow! I had no idea they had that in their gym...then again, I haven’t set foot in their gym, or any gym, in years lol. I might as well start 2019 on the healthy track and hit the Aria gym next month!

    Your Aria room does look very strange...I’ve never seen one like that. It looks like it’s a wedge shaped room?
