    If you see a somewhat haggard (e.g. looks like he's been in town all week) old, fat guy locked on to a VP machine with a whisky sour in his hand at Venetian, come over and say hi!

    Stop by the players club. They should be able to see what you won.

    Hair Appointment was great! I cut off about 7 inches of my hair and it feels so good to be blonde again! [​IMG]

    Afterwards, we went to Mesa Grill again... one last time!

    Pumpkin Soup... [​IMG]

    Cactus Pear Iced Tea... which we were told is actually China Mist Prickly Pear tea... I may order some just to see if it’s the same....

    [​IMG]

    Filet Mignon and Garlic Mashed Potatoes... this was actually my first meal ever at Mesa Grill...[​IMG]

    Sticky Toffee Pudding with extra ice cream....

    And about an hour later she was here... she was definitely the big winner for our trip!

    The next day we slept in and by the time we got ready and made our way downstairs, it was lunchtime. We went to Yardbird... [​IMG]

    I ordered the lunch plate... it was good....

    [​IMG]

    We also ordered extra watermelon....

    [​IMG]

    And okra....

    [​IMG]

    We also has the fried green tomatoes, but they weren’t good... tomatoes were very hard and they were extremely greasy...

    [​IMG]
    My aunt ordered the hot chicken sandwich and while we love spicy food, she said this was so hot she just couldn’t eat it.... would have been nice if they had told her beforehand that she could get the spice on the side, but we heard that from the person that cleared our table....

    After lunch, we did some shopping and made our way to the Wynn to see if they had any different new games... it was completely dead in the Wynn and we felt like we had the casino to ourselves. They didn’t... I played a little bit on Tarzan and my bad luck continued.... Once we made our way back to the V/P, it was super crowded and actually felt like a normal weekend. We went to Cut for dinner and it was excellent as always... we also ordered way too much food....

    First time trying this drink... You start me up...

    [​IMG]

    Butternut Squash soup... [​IMG]

    Pretzel Rolls... which are no longer complimentary and we didn’t think tasted as good...
    [​IMG]

    Butter Lettuce Salad...

    [​IMG]

    Filet Mignon with grilled onions...

    [​IMG]

    Mac and Cheese...

    [​IMG]

    Seasonal Creme Brûlée with Huckleberry sauce...

    [​IMG]

    Banana Ice Cream...

    [​IMG]

    All so good!!! And we left there so full!!! Afterwards, i spent the rest of the evening playing at the Palazzo... and I actually won!!! This was on Jurassic Park...

    [​IMG]

    And this was on Buffalo...

    [​IMG]

    A fun night of playing, but everything was so crowded and there were so many people... in hindsight, I should have gone to the room. We flew home on Saturday and the I developed a high fever on Tuesday and my Covid test came back positive yesterday... we tried to be so careful, but honestly I think it was the crowds from Friday night... so far, my mom and aunt are fine and they didn’t stay playing Friday like I did... here’s hoping I have a mild case and a speedy recovery!

    Excellent report and congrats on the jackpots. Hoping you recover soon with no more than the high fever. I don't think I've read another trip report where the traveler came home with COVID. So sorry. Did your Mom and Aunt also go to the hair salon?? Wondering if you could have picked up the virus there? Are you required to notify the airline that you tested positive? Just wondering what the procedure is. Thanks for sharing your trip. I'm really sad I missed out on going to Mesa Grill. It's funny, after at least 20 trips, I never felt compelled to go until I heard it was closing and wouldn't have the chance again. When the new restaurant opens, I'll definitely go, before I can't. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    I hope things are ok with everyone too. I think this is the first known case on VF where it's almost certain the virus was contracted at a casino. Considering how many people have come & gone it's amazing that there hasn't been more, but still it sucks to hear that it happened to anyone.
