    Thanks for the advice nick. That’s two strikes for Uber with me and I’ve only taken 5 rides with them lifetime. We will maybe try Lyft later today and see how it goes.

    Wife at the spa this morning and I’m assuming it’s wonderful. So I went over to pop my Cosmo cherry and throw a couple hundred in play. Got as high as $400 at one point but eventually crapped out after a solid hour of slots and VP. Think I am close to 1000 identity points so whatever coin in that is. I took @MNSlotLover advice to try $10 ainsworth ant no luck for me today on those. Also did 10 straight 3 credit $5 pinball in the high limit room to win exactly zero. But considering that still held my own pretty good. Even tried Hoot Loot and Texas Tea and both did well.

    Decent bonus on Buffalo Gold and lightning link.

    That’s after collecting 6 golden heads which I think I had done after the first 4 spins. 25 spins total so I guess it could have been a bit better.

    Uber will likely refund the waiting time fee and the add'l distance cost ... just go to Help in the app and you can find a way to complain about past rides.

    A little kudos to The Cromwell hotel check-in staff this morning. Went down around 11am to figure out what we were going to need to do in order to get into the Luxury King (ie Strip View) room that was on the original reservation. Turns out they had one ready - basically across the hall from our double queen room last night and they let us keep both for the move across.

    Pics from the new room:

    One interesting thing from last night's room was that it was room 713. As in "13"th anniversary. Figured maybe it was a good omen. Turns out it was not.

    Kinda scratching my head about the “let us keep both both for the move across” comment.

    Did you think they would make you move your stuff in the hallway, shut the door then be able to go in the new room???

    The concern was just that check out time is normally 11 and check in time is normally 4. Curious that last night they were sold out of our room type but by 11am this morning they had one ready. I guess somebody could have had an early checkout but still it was only 13 hours later.

    Lunch at Flour & Barley in the Linq Promenade. Pizza joint. We are eating light given the plans for Bacchanal tonight.

    Not very busy in here so the dude refilling the water glasses is doing a great job.

    The pizzas were both really good. Nothing fancy just simple and perfectly executed.

    Going to have to wait a little while for more gambling wins. Shutting down the gambol until after the 8:30 Bellagio fountain show. On tap for this afternoon is some walking around and shopping. Then Bacchanal for dinner. I feel like I’ve mentioned that already lol. Must be looking forward to it.

    Sooo... today they are redoing the display at the Bellagio conservatory. We took a bunch of pictures I will post later. They will apparently be done tomorrow at 5pm if anyone in town wants to see it while under construction. It’s pretty neat.

    Don’t give up on the Ainsworth hunt!! It doesn’t happen every time, so keep the faith! Try it again if your winnings and bankroll support it! Good Luck!

    Food porn from Bacchanal. Hard to make it look as good as it tastes since I’m no master chef when it comes to plating.

    If that was your first time gambling at Cosmo and you signed up for identity, make sure to check your email for a free play offer. They have been sending new members offers the next day to try and get them to come back

    Ok fallen behind on the TR a bit. Quick catch up.

    Bellagio fountains last night for a memorable performance.

    Couldn’t get the perfect viewing location because telemundo was doing some sort of show. Grrr

    After that we went to Cosmo for slots and hung around for almost an hour on $100 each. Played Ghostbusters 4D which was fun but eventually my arm got tired pointing at Slimer. Fun game.

    Bankroll was spent for the day but since YOLO took another hundred each down to the Cromwell which went well. Played hard for 2 hours solid and each ended up about $50.

    This morning up early bc I forgot to disable the alarm on the phone. Then slept in a bit more before getting to the creperie for breakfast. Mixed berry for her and cinnamon bun for me. Sorry no pics.

    Then to the Cromwell to check out the pool. Complete fail. All daybeds and cabanas require purchase so for us when we just want to lay in the sun for an hour it doesn’t work. $5 to rent towels there. Worst part is that there was NOBODY there.

    Nice enough joint. Just not at all for us.

    Now we are at nine fine Irishmen for drinks as a toast to my wife’s mom.

    Dubliner for her on the left and a Gaelic Punch for me on the right.

    Now off to Luxor for the free daily and then Mandalay Bay for the Shark Reef for free on a MyVegas reward.
