    Great rebound Crystal. Congrats. Admittedly I was a bit concerned when you went silent (I know you were also sitting the phone down) but recall your early on comment about drinking and feet swelling. Lead me to believe you might have developed clown feet and had to go hide out for a bit. hehe

    Nice report, thanks for sharing and have a good one

    Crystal, glad you had some luck at V/P after all the losses at Cosmo and Aria. Sorry to hear about your disappointment with MLife, but sounds like you found a new home at V/P, with Cosmo as a backup. Thanks for sharing your trip .

    Crystal, I'm so happy it was my beloved Davinci Diamonds that started you on the great comeback trail! Great to hear that Cut is back, though for me I never experienced anything there but great service, food and they always seat me at my favorite table that is noted in their computer, LMAO!

    M-Life used to give out free tickets for Shark Reef, Bellagio Gallery, Mirage Gardens for Platinum and above, but then I heard they cut it back to 2 free tickets to one exhibit per trip and only if you were staying on property. Have they changed that back to where you can now go to more then one exhibit per trip and it's complimentary?

    I hope I don't regret staying at Aria with Mom for 2 nights the end of July. It's the only place she could get a comp besides her 3 nights at Palazzo and my host offered the upgrade for me to the corner suite for my offer so I'm going with it. The only reason it might be worth it to me is the NYE party at the end of the year but then again I haven't gambled there much this year so doubtful I will get the invite. I really wish Venetian and Palazzo had a good NYE party. :(

    crystal, it wasn't you or BFF bringing bad luck on the craps table. They were not hot at the Cosmo all night and the next day. But the slots were good to me. Nice meeting you and BFF at the HL Slot Pull.

    I hit them all up. They gave me a letter at check in(at Aria) but I wasn't planning on stopping at Mirage after fashion show mall...Mlife desk let me go in by showing room key and card so I used letter at Shark Reef. If I had to pick between the two most definitely would pick Mirage Secret garden with the dolphins and Lions. You can get very close to the young dolphins and the lions come right up to the fence. Go early or later because there isn't much for shade unless you love the heat as much as me.

    You too as well. Glad to know it wasn't just us bringing bad luck at Craps...and Im really glad to know you had luck on the slots there. I didn't have much luck but I didn't tank as hard as at Aria and I will definitely stay and play at Cosmo again.

    At check in Desk ask for your Platinum experience package or ask your host to set it up for you ahead of time.

    So pleased you had fun. I'm enjoying myself but haven't one a damn thing. A nice win would really make a great trip a super trip! Check out of Bellagio tomorrow and off to Cosmo for 3 nights.....can 7 days of bad luck turn around?!

    Sorry you didn't have a huge come back, crystal, but it doesn't sound like many of us there last week did too well. Was still great to meet you and the others even though you and I were only cheerleaders for the pull. Next time we will participate and be the big winners we are meant to be

    That's it, we have the same taste in where we sit at Cut. :)

    I had to take the suite upgrade for Mom as she has a regular room comped and she wanted access to the VIP lounge for her morning coffee and snacks as she has to wait for me to get up. Fortunately Aria always lets her check in to VIP with me and gives her access to the lounge on her own key card as long as I have the corner suite for me. My host has moved to Chicago and is no longer at Aria, not sure what that will mean for me for backend comps but likely nothing good. I agree with you about Javier's and Carbone is still on my list of new restaurants to try so it's good to hear that you and others like it so much. I made Platinum with M-Life during my NYE's trip but if I don't get invited to the party this year, I don't think I'll bother to make it next year and will stay more at The Cosmopolitan instead and perhaps become Platinum at that property.

    I'm with you on trying to get V/P to step up their NYE party!

    I had dinner at Cut last night and we had a great food experience. The service was still not great. I honestly think we just had a bad server. I had the butter lettuce salad, the aged filet, sautéed corn, fingerling potatoes, banana cream pie and baked Alaska.
