    Well, this trip was originally slated for July 1-5...but I couldn’t help myself once @Wiscolovesvegas informed me that her Vegas trip was back on again (third time’s the charm? :tearsofjoy:), and her + her husband would be arriving on June 29! It didn’t take a whole lot of convincing to add one more day up front, so a quick flight change and text to my Cosmo host later, and bam – arrival shifted to June 30 at 10:40am!

    It’s been a while since I’ve done five nights in Vegas – I’m pretty sure it was like six years ago during my final college spring break – and I don’t think my body can handle that type of shitshow again. I already know I’ll need to have a break day and likely work in a visit (or two :sweatsmile:) to Reviv (does anyone else hear the faint echos of my liver pleading for mercy...?)

    My last Vegas trip was 4.5 months ago in February, so I am beyond excited to finally get back to my favorite place and hang out with @Wiscolovesvegas! I had a trip planned over March Madness that obviously was canceled as well as a trip in early May that bit the dust, so for me, I guess third time is indeed the charm. :sunglasses:

    And, let me just say...I’m reaaaaal eager for a vacation. I haven’t taken a single PTO hour in 2020 (I’m very grateful I’ve been able to remain busy despite the pandemic!), so the burnout is starting to creep up. Everyone else’s trip reports here lately have been so helpful and entertaining; they’ve been critical in helping me get to the finish line before my trip! So, special shoutout to @Figment76, @BeeeJay, @Anna T., @Riders, @VegasMonkey, @Texas Steph, and all of the other awesome VFers who’ve made TRs! I hope I’m able to keep up with y’all.

    Tentative Agenda:
    – The obvious gambol. Looking forward to a rather healthy bankroll considering the cancellation of my previous trips. Planning to play a ton of VP, but I’ve got a huge backlog of slots I’m wanting to try, too!

    – Food. Omg, ALL the food. I almost succumb to tears just thinking of Zuma. Got Zuma planned twice, Beauty & Essex, China Poblano (a first, btw!), Scarpetta, Milos, Lardo, & Secret Pizza on the docket.
    Given the reduced capacity and higher holiday demand, I already made all of the reservations I could. We may also try to fit in Lago and/or Michael Mina over at Bellagio, but we’re mostly trying not to leave Cosmo if we can help it :sweatsmile:

    – Pool time. Channeling my inner @claired67 and booked a lower poolside daybed at Blvd Pool. Excited for that as I haven’t had time at Blvd in roughly two years.

    – My boyfriend and I have been in a long-distance relationship and this will be the first time we get to be together in-person since our Feb trip due to covid. I am beyond happy and ecstatic to spend quality time together again! Of course, we’ve been talking and FaceTiming every day...but it doesn’t quite replace time together in person :relaxed: FT is kinda like eating a granola bar when you’re hungry...it’s better than nothing but doesn’t really give full satisfaction. He first flies into PHX on 6/29, then we fly together to Vegas the next day.

    – Spending some QT with Wisco and her husband, laughing until we cry, and team playing our way to those jackpotsssss.

    Buckle in, everyone. I hope I don’t fall off the rails with this TR!

    There needs to be a LOVE button for this!!!!
    I CAN NOT WAIT to see you again and oooh my the shenanigans we are going to get in to!!!
    You honestly deserve this vacation beyond anyone I know and am just so incredibly happy that we get to be there together!! Fun fact: since @GlenCoco was all aboard coming in a day earlier ( I had to twist his arm so hard... NOT... NOT AT ALL LOL), hubs and I decided to return the favor and will now be staying until the 5th ( originally leaving the 4th) I couldn’t even imagine seeing fireworks without my vegas bestie!
    As mentioned team glen coco and wisco for the win. We are about to drink our weight in veuve , laugh out asses off, eat way too much Ponza at Zuma , win some JACKPOTS, play way too many hours of VP ... just cuz we can lol and wait... did I mention ... win some jackpots. :)
    clearly the 30th can not come fast enough!! Can’t wait to smother you in hugs. XOXO

    Also I will try to jump into this TR to fill in any missing blanks. Bahahaha. 8 more days till we both kick this off and 9 until we are having a clinky glass moment at the HL bar. :) CAN NOT WAIT!!

    China Poblano is excellent, but they have a tendency to mess around with the menu. There's a quesadilla dish I used to love, but then they inexplicably added mushrooms to it. Blegh. But all the Cosmo restaurants are phenomenal.

    Safe travels and good luck!

    Looking forward to your trips - all 4 of you! Are you both going to post on this thread? Regardless, I’m glad you were able to coordinate dates, etc.

    Originally, we were supposed to be there the 2nd-5th, but not not meant to be.

    Have fun for all of us still stuck at home!

    Thanks!!!! Oh we will both be posting on this!! Lol Glenn coca is way better at Tr’s than this gal, so being the amazing guy he is, he’s letting me jump in on this one. :) just another reason why he is my vegas bestie!!
    Honestly so sad that we are missing you and Ron! My hubby had heard your names so often and was bummed he wouldn’t be able to meet y’all. ONE OF THESE TIMES!!

    Thanks, Riders! If I can channel even 10% of the VP luck you had on your last trip, I’ll be a very happy camper :wink:

    Thank you thank you! Looking forward to it. I did take a look at their menu and it appears quite reduced, but I expected it as much.
    I’ll look for the quesadilla! But...especially because I like mushrooms on pretty much anything haha.

    You will be SO missed, April & Ron! I really look forward to the day one of my trips aligns with your trips :relaxed: thank you for the well wishes!

    Steph :sob::sob: so close yet so far! Please keep all the machines warm for us upon our arrival and make sure the bottles of Veuve get lined up haha. Loving your report right now! Looking forward to our paths crossing on trips again – hopefully during a slot tourney again :sunglasses:

    @GlenCoco is far better at using tech , he will be MY SAVIOR to this TR. LOL.
    @Texas Steph and @bebe .... I can not wait for the day the stars align and we are all there together!!! Oh the fun to be had!!!
    Itinerary/goals
    Hubs and I have pick up at 11:10 am on the 29th and off to Cosmo for a quick checkin, speedy unpack and down to chandelier( last time there, unfortunately we had a very similar experience as @momnkid has had this time) so fingers crossed room will be ready. Once I get to pushing VP buttons and drinking ... the LAST thing I want to do is be a responsible adult and unpack later. Haha. Hubs and I have zero locked in plans and will probably just hit up secret pizza just to help absorb the alcohol. We also plan to play a bit in HL ( something we rarely do) and actually hit a jackpot. ( yet to happen in 25 years of going to Vegas) we welcome any slot suggestions!!
    30th: we will be the welcoming committee for GC and boyfriend. Should involve a lot of loud squeals and happy dancing! haha. Have not seen each other since last year. Off to HL bar for the first of many glasses of Veuve. :) over the course of time together, we plan to join BR’s for some HL play....Wish us luck!!! I also believe @IrishDave arrives in as well.... so we plan VP and drink ticket collecting. Lol


    From the 1st-5th .... we will go where the wind blows us. :) @Hoofy7 arrives on the 1st, so plan to hopefully meet her as well. Resy’ s at Zuma Thur night with GC and boyfriend ( thanks for making them ) !

    this trip is the first time in YEARS, that we do not have a family member of some sort either with us or joining in at some point. So hubs and I will not know what to do with ourselves for 6 nights.... OH WAIT ... that’s right... we will drink smoke and gamble ( ok hubs doesn’t smoke haha) perhaps even pull off a winning trip!! A girl can dream :)

    @GlenCoco @Wiscolovesvegas @IrishDave ...I am going to be living through this trip report! I can't believe I am missing everyone again as I am arriving July 10-July 14th. Reading this report will help the days go by! Currently living vicariously through @Texas Steph and @momnkid . I have to do a better job at planning trips. I gave Ruby Slippers and Munchkinland large donations. Can some of ya'll get that back?? LOL!

    Wow, sounds like a lot of fun with so many of you going around the same time. I am so jealous, I won't be going at least until October or maybe even 2021 since my hubs is ultra conservative, he does 't think it is safe to stay at any hotel yet. Any way, good luck to all of you, have fun meeting each other and win a lot of jackpots and royal flushes.

    Clearly whisky and VP are of no interest to you! ;)

    Ughhh, C, you will be so missed! Still laughing at our bar adventures from last year and drunk PMs about Clique :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    YAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

    We’ll do our best! And Munchinland absolutely hates me. Definitely an aesthetically pleasing and fun game but I have never been able to hit anything on it! I’d probably be just as well off feeding Toto $100 bills because all I get back is crap hahah.
