    Correct. We were playing at a handicap accessible table and at least one spot has to be reserved at all times which is why that sign was present.

    Day 2 of the trip would have us spending the day at G2E. Further updates will be made on that thread- but overall it was a fun experience. Great to see the new machines, but, I also found it sensory overload with all the machines set to burst into bonus rounds, lol!

    For dinner that evening, we hit up Yardbird. I've enjoyed it in the past, so figured I'd make a larger table reservation this trip. I was shocked to find out for a table reservation over 7 people that there were a ton of requirements in place! For a table of 8 for instance, the restaurant itself can't make the reservation, you have to contact the home office. From there, they were requiring a $60 per person spend or $600 for the table collectively- that was prior to the 8.15% tax and 23% service charge (does that mean gratuity still above that??) IF all that was agreeable to you, then they will send you on-line "paperwork" after paying a $150 credit card guarantee. Seriously?

    So, we kept the table reservation within their crazy limitations. Our crew had dinner with beeejay, alexanbo and hielo- a good time was had by all! As you can see from the pictures, it was yet another meal that did not disappoint! Just looking at the deviled eggs in that pic makes me hungry!

    We decided to take a walk down to Cosmo since it seemed many had moved there by now. This picture of the fountains just NEVER gets old, right?

    This evening was such a blast with some fun surprises! Lots of members started arriving around the Chandelier bar where we were hanging out. First pphold showed up, and a short while later Evoni. EVoni had her friend Rex with her who was in the HBO show Entourage. As that had been one of Mr VC's favourite shows, I couldn't help but to ask for a pic!

    We were having an awesome time, and I was enjoying my favourite drink- a raspberry lemondrop!

    Wait....darn it! Why didn't anyone tell me? Just noticed my eyelashes did make their way onto my martini glass. I just knew that was going to happen.......

    Then I heard that Sonya, founder of another forum, was around the Cosmo! We managed to connect on the slot floor and had a great chat! It was such an unexpected surprise, but so glad we finally had the chance to meet and talk!

    By now, VegasMonkey had arrived and many of us were having drinks. Some of us left and were now heading for Caesars! We arrived to check out the rainman suite and within short time Packer and Broncofn arrived! It was great to see Packer again, and meet Broncofn for the first time. Can't thank you boys enough for your hospitality that night, it was a ton of fun! And that suite.....I mean just the view takes your breath away, as seen in my photo below.......

    It was getting late so we made our way back to Palazzo. We hit the slot floor again, and it was still loving us! No handpays at all, but in these first two nights we were up easily 4K! It was late so we eventually called it a night!

    Just a little slot porn for my 1k hit on $5 WOF progressive.....

    Hey VC, the only thing I can remember using it for was topping champagne off with it and adding a rose petal to the drink for garnish. I believe I saw a Pinterest recipe though for a sangria using wild rose liquor in it. ;)

    @BFF and I played the towers and both got quite a few bonuses. I was playing I think $6 a spin and think she was playing similar or higher? I even got the Super Free Games and ALL of our bonuses paid under $10! Lol When she first arrived and we met up we went to play these newer machines behind the Fusion Bar. It was a bank of 6 or 8. Took us forever to figure out what was going on with these red crystal hearts. Most games explain themselves as you are playing, but NOT these. Lol She was getting the bonus frequently and had her credits up really high for awhile. It just ate my money. We also tried Dragon Spin and I got a WILD bonus but it didn't pay very much. I was having very shitty play that day and just couldn't win a thing. Then the next day I had the Midas touch! Couldn't lose...until the next day. It was a lot of fun to meet you BFF and you are as sweet and personable as you are beautiful. Thanks for forcing me to be social! Did you ever run in to Wendy bartending at Fusion. She wasn't there during my stay. I saw you got the regular key lime cocktail which is very good too, but only Wendy makes me the smoothies there. ;)

    That is true; I thought it odd 2 bartenders told me 24hrs. I assume it's the same fine print at all the bars, so I am confused.

    I don't have any experience using after 2 hours. I did give some away and confirmed they're transferable.

    Hmm... let's see if we can get some clarification as I know lots of people had tickets they just ended up throwing away.

    @Hoofy7 - it was fabulous to meet you and Mr Hoofy as well. Thanks for all the slot fun!!!! You must have been my lucky charm 'cause the bonus runs weren't as forthcoming the rest of the trip. Except HL Mustang Money. @crystal finally convinced me that game is worth playing. Also thanks for the drink recommendation - that came from a text from you but you might not remember. Hahaha. Wendy did make it for us....you'll have to remind me to try the smoothie next time.
    Take care and it was great to meet you.
