    Warm birthday wishes to you! Lovely trip you are having, and I am surprised at the Phaidon published "The Fashion Book" in your room! How very interesting. Safe drive home. :)

    I guess we'll let you join...
    Yeah, it's over a 2500X hit for the individual game! I think it's dumb that you have to bet two bucks at a quarter a game. If someone wants to bet more, why not let them??

    Great pics and hits ella!

    All right, now for today's recap...
    Breakfast in the room this morning, just something light so I have plenty of room for dinner at Michael Mina.
    7fa44f8606a165cfe04a7853c33df26c.jpg Then hanging out in the terrace for a bit. 3a1c131b6c50edaf0c2cd22ea304136a.jpg
    Off to Bellagio, and as usual they have a lovely display in the Conservatory. 2b68d30a37f9f9cfb2176a709c30eedc.jpg 60a1d8ca37e1ae8576805d0bfbe15e48.jpg 2663f4495cde3533aa54f6861dbb8db1.jpg b2051636776de802310b1a576279b3ac.jpg
    Now for gambling fun! Mr. Ellabellita always has much better luck than I do. This is a progressive bonus on GoT at Bellagio.

    Not bad for a $1 bet!

    Now for dinner at Michael Mina. We went at 5:30 to take advantage of the Sunset/Pre-Theatre menu. 10bdd5705a444714b4c99825b1815174.jpg
    I had the asparagus soup with crab fritter (so delicious) 2115a694f0723db95c54e9834ec2e385.jpg
    The filet 3d17524ce16ba761d0030fa6b60b4155.jpg
    The root beer float and cookies 3674ed85e63f6ea89c302299d92f7d59.jpg
    And a special birthday dessert of chocolate truffles! 9060c0bc085211762dbfeff70e84880b.jpg
    We also had the wine pairing, which was smashing!
    Service and food were wonderful and the pricing seemed to me to be a bargain. I'd highly recommend having dinner here.

    After dinner, more gambling at Bellagio, and while we didn't have any big wins, we both were able to play and be entertained for a couple of hours for little money, which is nice when it happens! I played a Lion Dance multi-game (four games) for such a long time, and somehow that kept me happy!

    Then we were off to the Wynn, and there were a couple of $100-200 wins for us but still the hand pay has eluded me. Same thing at Palazzo/Venetian. We feel fortunate that we can manage to play for so long and not spend too much, especially since we did spend a good deal on the spa and meals this time. Maybe one day we'll have some big money for our bankroll, but for now this will have to do.

    We decided to walk back to the Cosmo and I took a couple of pictures on our journey. 8869ce1356f661163a3fc9cdf26c7ba4.jpg 6d9f86233eb31efb5fbb0fa33edbccdc.jpg 859b42340af289941ce6149fda3a77d9.jpg 465c0c6f6de05b5958ee5109aad1e74d.jpg
    Now it is super late, almost 4 am, so I have to get some sleep before they kick us out of the room!

    Thank you for the birthday wishes, it was a wonderful day! My liver is holding up ok but I'll probably have to dial it way back for awhile when I get home so I can detox for the next trip!

    Great pics, thanks! Bongo needs a safety line if he's going to sit on the railing.

    Oh, yes, we've done that several times and have really enjoyed it. That's how we discovered the bar!

    I know, it was making me nervous to have him up there! I am a terrible monkey mother.

    We had a nice surprise upon checkout from the Cosmo-the entire bill was only $48! Celebrating with a Bloody Mary and of course, more gambling! f9d0ae5f0b052ed4053a6a6e6daed99e.jpg

    Terrific trip report! Michael Mina is one of my favorite restaurants, thanks for posting the food porn from it. Bongo looks like he wants to stay. :)
