    Met up with my mama, who is also in town for her birthday, which is as last Friday. We ate at Mon Ami Gabi and had a lovely meal and birthday dessert. Now we're off to see Jersey Boys. b72a65e82177296f3824b79a97c05195.jpg Endive, pear, and blue cheese salad, yum! 74dc157ca447c7334fcc1cc39adae842.jpg GreyGoose martini! 641f36522de14b29b830948079e2ab07.jpg Scallops, really yummy! 323d0c99d56494d24d13ad25c02b3b0e.jpg Complimentary cream puff for our birthdays.

    Jersey Boys was very entertaining, and my mom loved it, which is good because that was my birthday present to her! My mom is a very low stakes gambler and can't handle seeing me make any bets over $1.50, so last night I hung out with her at Paris playing the penny poker slots.It was actually really fun and we had a super attentive cocktail waitress who brought around vodka tonics quite often! Here are a couple of good hits I had, wish I would have been playing dollars instead of pennies! 41b2908de16cd31090c304e6aab907e2.jpg c005422738b06f0288f9665057e7dd88.jpg
    This morning we had breakfast with my mom since she was heading back to D.C., and now we are back out on the prowl and hoping for some good wins at higher bets before we head over to the Mandarin later for our spa treatments!

    I'm enjoyed your photos, especially the food. My girlfriends went and head treatments at the MO spa last week and they loved it there!

    Glad you had some nice hits on the penny VP...and found a good waitress! I have never had much luck at Paris for service when playing on the floor.

    Maybe you can sneak away from Mom for a bit and find even bigger wins! ;)

    The spa at the Mandarin was wonderful. Mr. E and I both enjoyed the jade enzyme facial. From his description it sounds like the male attendants in the spa were much more attentive than the female ones. He was thoroughly impressed by the service on the men's side of the spa. I didn't find the women's side to be particularly lacking in service, but I also don't like to be bothered. Wish I had some pictures but I felt weird about taking pics inside the spa. There was a laconium, steam room, some showers with special effects, and a whirlpool. Also heated seats and some snacks like banana chips, fruit, and trail mix. I did find it a bit odd that there were views of the strip from the spa, because that was too frenetic for me, but Mr. E loved it. Elizabeth was my aesthetician and she was great.

    Afterwards we went to the Mandarin Bar for some drinks and snacks. From here I thought the view was wonderful! f891d4cebf2dec2d95f36df7f35987aa.jpg 38b8c501084402ce1a22a60327cf60fe.jpg b7ba7eb6fcefaa9b3b4fc3335db1e8ee.jpg

    Then we tooled around Aria but didn't have much luck. Then back to the Cosmopolitan where we found better luck on a Wonder 4 machine for me ($200 win on a $2 bet, which is pretty good for me), and much better for Mr. E on Hot Hot 8!

    Now back at the room for some much-needed sleep, and here's the nighttime view

    Later today we plan on room service for breakfast, probably more gambling in the afternoon, and then my birthday dinner at Michael Mina!

    Love the view from the MO bar, I keep meaning to go there and have a drink.

    That's a fabulous win your husband had on the Hot Hot 8 game, the best I have seen so far.
