Most casinos are open. Cromwell is still closed due to they are filming a show called love island there. Some hotels are only open Thursday-Sunday right now. Yes you have to wear your masks in the casinos, even between sips of your drink or a puff on a cigarette. I did see lots of cleaning going on. There was hand sanitizer and free masks everywhere. MGM hotels had sinks to wash your hands right there on the casino floor.Looks like you had a great birthday and managed a few wins - well done.
like you hitting 3 7’s I would have thought that is a jackpot!
And yes I did look at all the pictures And they bought back happy memories of our November 2019 trip (our last holiday abroad due to Covid!)
I still crack up when I see pictures of madam Taussauds (the hangover scene) - I went up to that open door and jumped out of my skin when the tiger roared. Chris and my brother and his wife have never let me live it down.
Missing the conservatory in the bellagio - what a shame it’s normally fun to see what they come up with but that’s a great excuse to go back (I know it would be something different by then but we’ll it’s a reason to go back)
I’m curious do you wear masks in the casinos and how about sanitising? From your comments it looks like most casinos are open - are they?
When you get tired of snow, you can send it here, please. Hopefully I will have my drivers license by then (my road test is on Dec. 31st) and I won't have to have lessons in the snow. I know how to drive in snow....did it for years. But having an instructor 2nd guessing everything I do is not fun...so by that time, I won't have to submit to someone else's judgment and I'll be happy to have some snow!Day 7 - 50th Bday extravaganza trip
The day before I had checked with the front desk... no extended checkout available, but I could pay for a half day and have the room until 6pm. Since our flight was at 11pm, that definitely sounded like a plan to me, so we took that deal.
Our last day... we started out at Blueberry Hill for some tasty breakfast... highly recommend!
While we were there I was scrolling thru instagram, and found out one of my knitting friends (who lives in a different state than I do) was also in Vegas... so I texted her to find out.... wazssssup!? So we made some plans to meet up after breakfast. Hubby still wanted to see the Marvel station gift shop at TI, which just happened to be where my friend was staying. So I got to meet up with a real life friend while there... how fun is that?
Played a bit at TI... did ok, but I don't seem to do great there. Went back to the Aria and napped, checked out and went to MGM, no luck there at all, and it seems packed with riff raff. Decided to go check out the Wynn before we left, and that was the first Friday they had security and bag check. We didn't have much luck there either.. but it was fun to look around. Got a bite to eat in there cafe before heading to the airport.
Dropping off the car at Enterprise was super easy, and we had just the right amount of time in the airport.
We had such a great trip, and decided to book another trip for February. This time we are going on the cheap. Staying at NYNY, and hoping to make minimal plans... maybe we might get to see a show this time!
I should add to this that we didn't spend even half the money I had planned for my Birthday Extravaganza, so I already have us booked for another Las Vegas Trip in February. I thought it would be a good time to get out of here when we are super tired of the snow!
