    Thanks! @Anna T. We have been having much fun! I agree with most on here, it's weird but if you like smaller crowds ( love it ) and you can roll with some closures, it's STILL a nice break from reality. The doom of this crazy pandemic doesn't seem to be front and center when your masked up and gambling. Strange as that sounds. For me, I can still escape. Is it the same? Hell to the No. I do respect those who choose to stay home. I also give props to those who say, WHY not? You gotta do YOU. I will say, I'm debating my 8/30 to 9/3 trip. If I go, I have a corner suite Aria or Salon Bellagio which does not suck. I'm just trying to weigh risk. It's ALL a gamble, whether we admit or not.

    Just caught up. Sounds like a fun trip.

    I know MGM isn't for everyone but I still like it there. Pool pics looked great all but the 107 temps.

    Hope you make one last stab at talking their money.

    @Riders MGM is gritty realness. It's a whole other vibe. You may win, you may get shanked. It's a gamble. I found out my dealer SAM from hi limit roulette last 4 years has retired due to covid. I loved him. He was sullen. He would see me and light up like a Xmas tree. I had fun with him and his crew. Holy Mother he could count! He's met my husband , cousin, daughter, brother , Mom multiple times. We had a thing. . He was? Early 70s? We would talk travel. He was from Korea. Loved my last name. We shared stories. I think I will move to Aria but visit MGM. I love Aria. Stayed 3x now but loved corner suite. I love restaurants and casino and service but Sam kept me at MGM....but The time for me is over. Especially as I confirmed with host I can keep him!! Sad but true. @Riders what do u love about MGM??
    I love Colicchios and Emerild chef table

    Lago outside did not disappoint! I'm rebooking now, Sept 4 thru 8 for my bday. Trying to decide either Aria or Bellagio? Which pool is good? I love both. Any Mlifers care to weigh in? Last night I hit 1k in Bellagio on Pigs lock it. Gave it back on Buffaloes , I'm still surfing but dangerously close to wipe out! Thanks for following![​IMG][​IMG]

    How have I missed this up to this point??? Lago's outdoor Sunday brunch in spring or fall in cooler weather is a must for me.

    Hmmm... Aira or Bellagio...both??? Can't go wrong with either one, pools, rooms, restaurants, and casino are excellent at both. I like Aria's casino and restaurants a bit better, but I think it would come down to which style I wanted for that trip, modern or classical. Tough call.

    Sounds like a fun trip was had. I prefer the ARIA Corner Suites to the Bellagio Salone Suite. More space at ARIA and ARIA Corner Suite has a half bathroom too,

    I have no idea How This my first time outside there. It was pleasant not unbearable heat. I will try again in Sept if we go. I have it booked Sept 4 to 8th but we are skeptical. I'm thinking Aria but wow I love playing in Bellagio:) 1st world dilemma

    Great way to finish on the slots! I prefer the pools at Bellagio. For some reason I find the Aria pools have nothing really to them for ambiance where the Bellagio has so much foliage and a classy vibe.

    Aria is distinctly non family.
    Bellagio - you get big families and everyone else. Much bigger gambling floor at B... Lots of everything. Aria has a decent selection of slots, just enough to be interesting. I stay at Aria and play at both.

    Yes. Aria has the Toto super potty. Bellagio has a separate regular bidet or as I always wonder why did the put the drinking fountain in the bathroom so low..lol.
