    Spent five nights at the Cosmo last week and thought I would do a quick summary. We stayed in a wraparound and had a friend join us for a few days so we got a rollaway bed. We set it up in the entrance hallway and it worked and fit very nicely there and provided privacy.

    Don’t ask me how but my wife figured out how to play the songs on her computer which went along with the fountain shows. Never realized how much the music really enhances the beauty of the fountains.

    We ate at all of our favorite restaurants at Cosmo and stopped in the new food court to try it out. I had the chicken which was pretty good but the side of coleslaw was excellent. My wife had a pork sandwich which she liked. We were able to sit down and eat in a booth. Compared to the Cosmo restaurants this was a real bargain so I give the new food court a thumbs up.

    We went to Charle Palmers for dinner Monday night to listen to the jazz trio. Tuesday night we saw Human Nature at the Venetian and really enjoyed it.

    The rest of the time I gambled at Cosmo relentlessly. I did hit one hand pay on the new buffalo max machine. Cosmo has two of them, one with a $6 max bet and the other with a $4 max bet. I hit my hand pay on the four dollar machine. Also had a lot of luck on buffalo grand, wonder four buffalo gold, 8 petels, and a lot of other machines. One of my best hits was on Dragon Link playing dollars and hit a bonus quickly paying just over a thousand. Even with all the hits I had I still went home a loser so I didn’t break my streak but I did have a great time and had good playback.

    Saw Diana Evoni playing the new Lord of the Rings slot but she was filming and I didn’t want to disturb the video so I left her alone. Thought I would see her later so I could introduce myself but never saw her again so I missed my chance...darn.

    Ran up a large bill at Cosmo and never connected with my host and left without checking out so don’t know as of yet what my final bill was. Everything is usually comped except tips so I’ll have to wait and see what my final bill was.

    Sounds like a very nice trip! Thanks for sharing.
    Will check out the food court on my next trip.

    Nice to know there are two different Buffalo Max slots, ie: max bet.

    Sounds like you played your butt off and had a great time, thanks for the recap!

    I thought I saw her too but I was so tired I was pretty sure I gave her a dirty look so I ran away hahaha.
    Did you try the wonder 4 boosts? I did fairly well on those.

    I never check out. Can't remember the last time I did? Like, If my house limo is set for 1:30 to go to the airport...you KNOW I'VE CHECKED OUT? I guess I should be better. I still get the notifications. But VIP lounge, KNOWS I'm gone. Ooopsss...think I posted on the wrong thread. I'm sorry...Baddass I am.

    One of the few machines I didn’t play. I saw them and meant to play them but never got around to them...next trip I’ll definitely give them a try.

    I'd love to know how your wife figured out getting the Bellagio songs on her
    Computer!

    I don’t have the slightest idea how she did it. She’s not home tonight so I’ll see if she can explain to me tomorrow.

    Not sure how your wife does it but I print a fountain schedule from Mark's Las Vegas website and keep a playlist on my iPad with all those songs downloaded. Then I can just pull up the correct song when I see the fountainheads rising.

    Hmm, now wondering if I could have the music playing and hit record. Would it work? Or is the iPad going to cut off the music when I switch? Not too hard to fix - can just pull up the music on my phone. Wait. What am I doing?!? My husband already has hundreds of photos and videos from our Cosmo balconies. Do I need to give him more ideas?!?

    Was a little worried about not checking out at Cosmo but did get an email today that all the charges were covered. That was nice to hear since we went a little overboard this trip. I don’t mind losing but hate to pay for anything except tips in Vegas. We only ate one dinner off site which the wife insists on.

    @DK528 I found schedules online and an Apple Music playlist, but it’s involved. Hoping we get an easier answer.

    Your wife is a briiliant woman. Our song is "Time to Say Goodbye" by Bocelli and Brightman. Our trip is only complete when we are comfortably ensconced on the balcony watching the fountains boom with every turn of Andrea's voice.

    Man, I almost feel like I'm there just thinking about this. T-8

    You did a quick summary but come on, there has to be some tidbit or story you want to share. Help get me thru this work day.

    Yup, that's the go-home song. We're still over a month away so I'm not counting yet.

    Wish I had some story or tidbit to share with you to help you through your work day. After 47 years of marriage there is not much new or exciting to share. I will give you one piece of advice though, travel and have fun while your young and able. Going to Vegas is about all I have left since travel has become difficult for me especially because of the medication I have to take for motion sickness which has side effects. Sometimes I think that the vibe at Cosmo really isn’t for me but I don’t care because I enjoy my stays there.

    We have been doing the best we can to follow your advice! For years, we were the youngest playing keno at the VP bars, grabbing a snack in the Diamond Lounge etc. Not that we cared, but I sure as hell care now. We aren't the youngest anymore! Whaaaaaaa! lolololol

    I hear you on the vibe at Cosmo. When it gets really, really crowded on a Friday or Saturday night, I don't feel like I belong either. That's when I give in to the call of alcohol. Dancing to bonus rounds, cheering for mediocre line hits and ending every sentence with a catchphrase from Austin Powers... Suddenly, I am the vibe of Cosmo and to hell with anyone that doesn't jump on the Tracy train that's following the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B.

    Identity Platinum,
    On my trip, I got out of the bath and decided I was hungry. Decided to just throw on some clothes and go see if the food court was open. They do not have full length mirrors in the terrace studios. I got on the elevator and oooh boy was the outfit bad, plus my hair was all wet. and no makeup. Decided screw it and kept going. Ended up following all the Marquee people to their line... and the food court as not open. I was not fitting into the vibe either hahahahaha. Went downstairs to find my sister and she laughed and laughed at the poor outfit.
