    We ate at Scarpetta on both Tuesday & Saturday nights. After not having dimes there in over a year, I was extremely pleased with everything. Service has always been excellent – I’m friends with one of the bartenders – but the food was exceptional these times, too.

    Tuesday: heirloom tomatoes & burrata, calamari, Lamb Tagliatelle, side mushrooms.

    Saturday: ahi tuna & strawberry salad (special that night), chicken Marsala (best I’ve ever had), side spaghetti a la vodka, tiramisu, & cheesecake (my fav base cheesecake anywhere, btw).
    Not pictured.... delicious drinks. They have this honey hot margarita that was just phenomenal.

    Saturday was a bit of a delayed anniversary celebration for us...and like we would say no to free dessert, hahaha.

    Also, @claired67, to avoid too much bad juju, I won’t go into the negative details on the pool :sunglasses: besides the severely disappointing starting service and opposite daybed location of what I reserved, A and I had a great time together. Was a beautiful day! (Wednesday)

    And, I don’t remember if I posted this before or not bc, well...champagne...but we decided to stop by HL for a quick glass or two of champagne and some VP. It turned into me downing over a bottle rather quickly, leaving with $1 profit, and this roadie of Veuve....

    9E6D757F-17AF-492D-AB8E-D8D521CE9ECC.jpeg

    My favorite type of roadie Veuve.

    Continuing Wednesday...
    Wednesday was a great gaming day (tbh, most of them were, which is beyond unusual but damn can I get used to it!). And we didn’t even play that much because of the pool (we shut it down at 6pm) and then dinner at Beauty afterwards (see next post).

    I can summarize most of Wednesday gaming with....

    Round 1 of Huff’N’PuffPalooza:

    Y’all. This game this trip was off its damn rocker because I HAD SO MANY BONUSES. And most of them quality! On Round 1 on Weds night, we were hanging with @Wiscolovesvegas and her husband. One of the most hilarious nights I can remember in Vegas in a while. And, I could not lose on a H’N’P machine when they were around!

    These all happened between 11:11pm and 12:41am.

    I think I ended up taking the ticket right above $3k after starting around $1.9k. Insane. Unfortunately stuck about $450 into Buffalo Rev right after that, then decided it was def bedtime around 1:30 or so.

    Oh, PAUSE. Before that Huff’N’Puff demolition, I absolutely crushed it on Wolf Run Gold. Definitely one of my new favorite games!

    took it for around +$800ish by the time I cashed.

    So, again, a slight rewind....to before Wolf Run Gold & Huff....

    Beauty & Essex. Just love it there every single time we go.

    Starter champagne, Emerald Gimlet & Woodsman, two rounds of Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Dumplings, ‘lil French Dips (they weren’t as rare as they appear – just bad lighting), Thai Shrimp, Chicken Meatballs, Chocolate Peanut Butter Meltdown.

    Aaaand we are at Thursday!

    Some random drink porn...Vanessa in HL is just incredible. Known her since 2013 and she’s such a sweetheart, too.
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch blended drink (omg) and a pair of some blackberry-lime vodka concoctions that were so tasty:
    8BE79FA0-A7DC-4FCC-96F0-9E16FB8E820A.jpeg D9422964-C60B-40DA-A178-9D4146F9AE37.jpeg 49541C86-504B-45DC-A347-BA5DB6AD4D9E.jpeg

    We stopped at The Study in RRL before dinner for a cocktail as my friend was extra’d there. Was a first timer at The Study and I loved the vibe. Very library-like but ...oh, I guess that’s why it’s named as such (literally just dawned on me typing this hahah).

    This was our Zuma night with @Wiscolovesvegas and boy was it a NIGHT (I should just hang out with them permanently bc I burn so many calories constantly laughing...zero guilt about eating the pounds of butter sauce at Zuma).
    Not many photos bc we devoured things before they could even set them on the table, but a cocktail and the lovely anniversary dessert they made for A and me:

    6C948105-1915-473F-A3A1-624F08A1CF75.jpeg 71FBC7AC-E219-4682-B6E8-690FEA163FA5.jpeg 421BB502-089C-4068-AD21-95A281649136.jpeg
    the thing was massive and I think it’s in the range of like $50-60ish IG ordered directly from the menu, so this was an amazing treat.

    We went back to say hello to our friend in The Study for a moment, and A spied an interesting glass in a cabinet....
    and decided to get the drink made from it. Loved it. Birds & the bees (I think partially captured on previous menu photo).

    5D44EAF5-46E2-4FFD-BCB1-7905F0421B60.jpeg

    I was more than ready to go to bed, so we headed upstairs for the evening.

    I think my gaming from Thursday was scattered somewhere in the report...

    Looking back on photos, I think I actually covered a good portion of both days with live updates, so I’ll try to do a pic dump of what I don’t think got posted (except Huff’N’PuffPalooza Part 2 from Saturday...that gets its own post :tearsofjoy:)

    Friday was the IV morning + Secret Pizza + the $4k AWAK hit + Zuma again that night (we just can’t stay away).
    Mostly a fail on getting some food porn from Zuma again, but I’ve got a few pics plus our great window view:
    4DE6996F-0F34-4AC3-BBF9-09F3509C5EA8.jpeg 7C6F611A-8CC2-4767-8064-BD578A28CAB8.jpeg AB02E7FF-BA35-4FFC-8F2D-BFF34A7A25F7.jpeg 96EBE465-7B4C-4515-B3B2-365B7B1AF727.jpeg 8B93F366-42A7-4306-BCBF-7BF76AA13C5D.jpeg EF0F034E-3C64-4133-94AF-18B553DD0617.jpeg DFCC3498-AE2D-4540-BECF-EDC5AE3600C4.jpeg 88736833-3F12-447F-911D-434170A7A752.jpeg A541D4E4-B764-40D8-B218-C5F672B2ECB5.jpeg

    We gambled for a bit that night, but that was Friday (next morning is when I went on my bit of a rant). Onward to Saturday!

    And for the quick wrap-up of Saturday that hasn’t made it up here yet:
    This was the Bardot, $2k quad 4s w/kicker, Scarpetta, Huffapalooza part 2. Speaking of that...


    before dinner, we gambled with @Wiscolovesvegas and her hubs again. And, yet again, they brought the luck with Huff. I decided to kinda low roll for the night to extend my last couple hundred and book a win... so did 2cent Huff, min bet. And went on a complete tear. Ended up increasing to 5 and 10cent. Some bonuses aren’t pictured bc I forgot about them.

    3643027B-C132-456D-AA0F-DAFAA2E9B2A1.jpeg EA1CA980-1E80-4FFD-83CF-88910BCC6B08.jpeg 63D8585C-9A47-4DCC-9105-95929BD58384.jpeg F41ADD69-A8ED-4908-B1B8-B05CD26CE643.jpeg 22B92370-7B9B-49CC-AD99-82241D8E4EA7.jpeg 8A746126-42F4-460C-965F-540DC57A0D26.jpeg
    Put in $100, had it up to $746, then think I cashed at $600.

    For timing/context...right after this was the “panties or mask” post :tearsofjoy:.

    And, that, folks, should hopefully fill most of the gaps.

    One thing I did miss out on, though...

    100% complete failure on not getting to see @IrishDave :disappointed::disrelieved::sob: like...it’s my own damn fault for not just SHOWING UP at any given point at Chandelier...however, I am super excited to go read his report because I have been saving it until now. Prepare for the barrage of likes, Dave! (And I promise not to be imaginary next time :innocent:).

    oh, and PS – loved loved loved getting to see @Texas Steph! You rock so much. And I got to meet @Hoofy7 who is a total blast, too!

    PPS.... I promise for whoever is reading this – if you get the chance to ever meet any of the above, you won’t be disappointed. Such awesome, fun, genuine people. Oh, and of course @Wiscolovesvegas, too!!

    Even though we didn't get to spend much time together (my fault for being "chained" to Chandy most of my short trip... oh wait, on second thought, I'm blaming @IrishDave ) I am sooo very glad I got to see and chat with you again for a bit, and meet A! If I rock, then you two double rock!!
    And you, my friend, are a superb judge of character in @Wiscolovesvegas (and her hubby)!! I agree with your comment on burning calories with the non-stop laughter, and I will treasure that weekend for eva!!!

    Congrats again on your lucky-as-all -hell gamble palooza! I hope to witness some of your hot streaks the next time we all get together... as there WILL BE a next time!!!!

    Wait. This wouldn’t be a proper GlenCoco TR unless I “sign off” with a proper GIF.
    So....

    That’s a bummer about the pool but at least you had a good time. I love Scarpetta and The Study and Zuma-so great to see all the pictures.

    Happy anniversary and thanks for finishing up the report.

Literally last night I was like “ omg we’d be at Zuma right now, OMG @Texas Steph was just getting to Chandy”. ... omg I’d be yelling to Dave “ where’s the damn multiplier Dave”. Poor @MrsIrishDave ear! Lol @Hoofy7 wanting to punch the chandy host to me telling a gang member off... what? Hahaha. I’m crying laughing !! @GlenCoco screaming MASK .... A and I punching our ticket to board the blackout train ... “ all aboard chooo choo” ..... my best and blessed trip by far..... even if the machines were just heartbreak and sadness !! LOL LOL !! And Steph is right. ... WE WILL DO THIS AGAIN !!!! I’ve said it once and I will say it again ... I miss y’all like hell :)
