    So this is a trip recap from before we started our TR's! New footage never before seen, and quite possibly- should have remained that way!

    We were double booked on offers- staying at Cosmo on 3 free nights with $350 FP and also at CET for free nights (not used) but had an event that was kicking off Olivia Newton Johns residency at Flamingo. Oh yeeeesssss- read on....

    We were starting with a 2k BR and would see if we could survive the weekend without hitting a bank machine!

    The trip started with a decent sized hit on monopoly-

    We celebrate the win with some favourite chocolate martini's on the floor at Cosmo

    And then grab a slice of pizza at Secret Pizza

    We head back to the casino and get a great hit on some ski machine- close to a handpay but yayyyyy- no taxes!!

    At some point we hit up Holsteins for a snack, including a boozy campfire milkshake!

    It was time to hit up our evening event! The offer had a dinner event at the ballroom at Flamingo. They really did a great job! It had an open bar, included dinner, had a photo booth, featured the Sha-Na-na's band, and would have a dance contest with ONJ judging. It would also have a draw for free play! They also gave us 2 front row tickets to her show the following night-

    We of course, chose to be silly.....

    The dinner was fun, they had a cool dessert- merengue stuff, brownies, and other undecipherable forms of sweetness-

    Now we didn't win the dance contest-

    BUT we were THRILLED to have won $1000 in FP in the draw.....pretty sure it was the costumes giving us good karma!!

    It was a fun evening, but it was time to explore the strip, making new little friends along the way......

    Then it was time for a late night snack, prime rib at The Henry

    View attachment 293025ad752e30452a7179ea400a801b.jpg

    In the end, we came home with $1400, had $600 in cash paid shopping- so we had broken even! All food was charged to the room and applied credits to pay leaving only a $21 balance (we didn't know about back end comps then!) we did hit gold at Cosmo that trip and received our host appointment from them for following trips!

    And that was the last trip we would make not having forum friends to meet up with! Oh how the bankroll and itinerary have changed over time

    You were both so cute. I remember when flamingo had this event. I didn't go but others had reports posted.
    I also remember when girls wore poodle skirts and sweater sets.

    It was a great trade off on giving up our $300 FP offer for the event especially since I won the $1000! They really did do a nice job on the event so not surprised that you remember the TR's from it!
