    We arrived in Vegas yesterday and I had every intention of doing a live trip report but...Vegas. Yesterday was a long day as we were awake at 5 to catch our 10am flight. We had a town car pick us up at 7am and we arrived at YYZ just before 8am. I tried to check in the day before but as always the Air Canada app was being difficult. As it turns out I would have never been able to check in online as I was randomly selected for additional screening with my boarding pass marked with ssss. The only additional screening they did was swab some of my belongings including my cell phone. We made it to the gate about 30 min prior to our boarding time. [​IMG]

    Flight was uneventful and felt much longer than 4 hours 40 minutes. We pre selected our seats however what we didn’t realize is that our row (23)did not have a window so our view was of white panelling. We couldn’t get off the plan fast enough. We headed straight to baggage claim and thankfully all our luggage made it. I had to check my carry on at the gate as it was a full flight and I’m always worried it won’t make it on the plane. We contemplated taking an Uber to the MGM but opted to take a taxi as it was the easiest option. We arrived at the MGM a little after 12pm and the check in line was fairly short. The room initially assigned to us was not ready however she was able to get us in a room that had already been cleaned. We are staying on a 2 night comp with a small resort credit. She mentioned that we were entitled to a complimentary fridge for personal use as we had booked through an Mlife offer which I’ve never been told before. We were giving a Grand King strip view on the 25th floor. We dropped our bags in our room and headed to get something to eat. We were in such a rush in the morning we didn’t eat breakfast and it was now 4pm Toronto time. We hadn’t tried Shake Shack so we decided that this would be a quick and easy option.[​IMG]

    Shake Shack was good and we felt we enjoyed it as much as In and Out for different reasons. After Shake Shack we headed back to our room to relax for a bit as we were exhausted. Nothing to report on the gambling front as we had no significant wins or losses. After relaxing for a bit we decided it was time to head out and see where the evenings takes us. We walked down the strip to Cosmo to play for a bit before heading to Planet Hollywood to grab something quick for dinner. We stopped at Earl of Sandwich for a quick dinner. We each had the original on wheat. [​IMG]

    After dinner we headed back to the MGM and again no big wins or losses to report. When we left to grab dinner Casino was on AMC and when we returned Good Fellas was on. Unfortunately they were both edited beyond belief which made them almost unwatchable. I was exhausted after a long day of travelling and maybe lasted an hour before passing out. P woke me up around 10:30pm to ask me if I wanted to go back out with him...that was not happening back to sleep for me.

    I woke up a few times throughout the night and finally at 6:30am I knew there was no going back to sleep. P woke up and asked the time and i knew there was no way he was getting up. I told him I was going to go downstairs and play for a bit and I’d bring up coffee for us when I was done. Unfortunately the bank of lightning link machines were out of order so I decided I’d play Dragons Law or as P and I call it Dragon Bastard. Things did not go well initially as I put in about $200 before hitting this. [​IMG] I knew I should cash out grab coffee and head up to the room but degen. I ended up playing it all back in while enjoying two coffee and baileys. I moved on to Dragon Link $100 in and nothing. I had successfully blown through the days budget by 8:30am. I stopped at the Starbucks in the casino to grab two lattes for P and me and headed back up to the room.

    We slowly got ready and headed downstairs to Avenue Cafe for breakfast to use our resort credit. P had the classic breakfast and I had the smoked salmon bagel. [​IMG] There was no way I was going to finish all of that. After breakfast we headed out to walk the strip. P wanted to go to fashion show mall to order some clothing we can’t get at home. We slowly made our way down to the opposite end of the strip stopping at Cosmo and Bellagio to make a donation. Last year P and I had a blast playing a bank of lightning links in the Bellagio. Unfortunately the same could not be said this year. I sat down next to a woman who attempted to turn down the volume on my machine. I had just triggered the hold and spin when she looked over at me and stared repeating “ loud too loud” before reaching over and hitting the volume button on my screen. From that point on i couldn’t hit a damn thing so I cashed out and moved down a few machines and quickly replenished my bankroll on Sahara Gold.

    That smoked salmon looks awesome - exactly what I get every AM at the Aria buffet

    Good luck today! I’d have been pissed if someone turned the volume down on my machine while I was playing! Wow.

    I would think there’s a protocol regarding touching someone else’s machine!! (Read: Don’t do it. Ever.)

    Good luck on the rest of your trip!

    After a little bankroll replenishing we continued down the strip towards fashion show. P ordered a few items that they didn’t have in stock and also picked up a pair of sneakers. After we finished up at the mall we decided to head back towards MGM as there was flash flood warnings. We made. Quick stop at Pairs and played long enough to grab a drink or two before leaving even. We continued our journey back to the MGM only stopping to pick up something to drink along the way. [​IMG]These are delicious albeit dangerous as they are quite strong. We made it back to the MGM around 4 and decided we’d play for a bit before heading upstairs. I sat down at the same Dragons Law from the morning and proceeded to donate all my winnings from earlier. We decided it was time to head upstairs and relax before getting ready for dinner. We love Julian Serrano and did not make it there our last trip so we decided we had to do it while down at this end of the strip. We were going to walk across to Park MGM and take the tram but we couldn’t find the entrance to the hotel from the front! We decided to just keep walking much to my dismay as I wasn’t exactly wearing walking shoes. We got to the restaurant around 8:45 and were sat immediately. We knew there were a few dishes we had to order based on previous visits. We also ordered a few new dishes. P ordered the Agua de Serrano which is a spicy tequila cocktail garnished with a habanero pepper. I was looking forward to their sparkling sangria which I quickly found out was no longer on the menu. I had a glass of their red sangria which was okay not the best I’ve ever had. The first dish we ordered was the cheese and charcuterie board. They brought out the wrong board as the first one had no cheese on it. P had to flag down a server and let them know this was not what we had ordered. They quickly took it away and within minutes we had the correct dish on the table. [​IMG]Everything was good but there were no real standouts. The next dish to come out was the stuffed piquillo peppers. [​IMG]Once again this dish good but not great. After this dish we both started to feel a little sick. We hadn’t eaten since breakfast and knew that was our problem. We still had two dishes to go so and knew it would be a challenge to get through them. The next dish is our favourite. We love this black rice dish and have been to a few tapas restaurants back home and none of them have anything close. [​IMG] We barely finished this before our final dish hit the table and I knew I was not going to eat my share.[​IMG] P and I ate maybe 1 1/2 chorizo between the two us. We did eat the cauliflower and it was quite tasty. At this point we were both complaining of stomach pain and decided it was best to take a taxi back to MGM. We charged our meal to the room which was quite reasonable at $110 before tip. We were back in our room by 10:15 to try and digest our food. After an hour so we were feeling better and decided to head downstairs. I checked my Mlife account a noticed I had made pearl in 24 hours so I headed to the desk to replace my card. P and I did a few laps of the casino and quickly realized the assortment of machines at MGM is really not that great considering the size of the gaming floor. We decided to give Dragon Link a try which started off positive. I got a hold and spin fairly quick and hit the mini for $100. It kept me playing for a little bit before I decided to feed it another $100. I forgot for a moment I was playing 10 cent denom and hit the button next to the spin button which is max bet ‍♀️after a few spins I noticed my money was almost gone and I had seen a ball with 2500 credits which I never see betting $2.50-$5.00 on the 10 cent denom. I quickly realized I had been max betting for the last few spins and it did not work in my favour. I went full on degen today spending about $1,200 out my bankroll not including the winnings I donated back into the machines. P wasn’t ready to go back up so we moved around together not really hitting anything and at 12:30 we headed upstairs to bed. I checked my coin in at MGM ($6,473.33) not bad for a little over 24 hours. I’m hoping they will cover the rest of our room charged at checkout. It’s now almost 8 am and I am wide awake. Thinking I’ll head down to grab Starbucks before coming back up to pack and get ready to move to the other end of the strip.

    I know I have never had that happen to me! I moved down a few machines and laughed when a woman in between us turned hers up all the way.

    You definitely don't touch a neighbor's machine - especially a stranger's machine

    Was thinking the same thing. The one at Terrace Point Café at Wynn is also delicious.

    Agreed, if she had done that to me I would have put it back to where I wanted it and told her she was welcome to move if it bothered her.

    But it's Vegas - I'm sure she was playing a slot machine in the local public library. Keep it down - people are trying to read!
