IIRC, Wizard once warned that deliberate messing about with user ID's could be counted as insults.

Isn't this thread's content controversial enough without many of us testing the water on what's acceptable?

Peace and love, friends. Peace and love $:o)

Rebuke PG. Rebuke Mendoza

Seems to me to be intended to insult each-other.

Let's not. Let's stay on topic.

Agreed that we should stay on topic, but the reason I don't comment harshly when PG makes rude comments and am friendly towards him always is that he tells us that he suffers from this malady

I know of it but mine is just good old fashion depression. Iíve dealt with it for over 15 years along with really bad anxiety disorder.


but still, I'm saddened that I have to wake up New Year's Day to hear PokerGrinder's racist rant. That sort of thing has no place in this thread, or this planet, and he does not get a pass for that, in my book malady or no malady.

Back on topic shortly with some pictures and continuing trip report.

He's a Canadian, ribbing all Americans on their behaviour towards all Mexicans. Controversial and ABSURD!

This Limey accepted that as tongue in cheek. Others might have seen it as a racist rant.

My rebuke stands, unless over-ridden by someone more in tune with US behaviour. I'm happy to yield to Wizard or BBB on this.

Many posts in this thread are controversial and I'd even say there is some trolling going on.

Pack it in folks.

Last night we did end up going to both casino's parties.

The plan originally was to go to Wynn's party first, but at 9pm as we were getting ready to leave the room, my Treasure Island host called the room from downstairs to ask if we knew where the party was. That was something. No casino host has ever bothered to phone to ask why I'm not at an event, so we felt compelled to go to TI's party first.

TI's party was...nice. Great Old School band, excellent food, if we had gone to only that event we might have had a certain impression of a Vegas New Year's Eve casino party. The theme was a sort of, "Under the Sea" underwater motif.

TI Appetizer:

TI main course:

From the blue hue of the plates, you may gather the underwater lighting motif they were trying to convey.
They gave us these sparky twinkly rings.

As soon as dinner was over, we slipped out, luckily while my host's back was turned so that he didn't notice 😜 then picked up the gift the casino gave us which was some kind of dashcam.

We walked up to the room, dropped off the gift, and headed out to go across the street to Wynn. The Las Vegas Strip was closed off from all vehicles, so it was an easy walk as far as being able to cross the street diagonally, and not have to wait at any crosswalk, but still it was a good ten minute walk just to get inside Wynn, and then another ten minutes or so to get to the ballroom.

Along the way we saw many police officers, and even one fatigue wearing armed forces guy, more than a few of whom were slinging automatic weapons. Previously, during my walk to Encore to check into our "room" there, I'd seen quite a few Wynn security officers patrolling with Security dogs sniffing the bushes. (One thing I really liked about the Wynn dogs is that they are all now some kind of friendly looking little curly haired dog, no more menacing German Shepherds.) Security was definitely tight they weren't taking any chances. The last time we were in Vegas for New Year's was about five years ago, and it wasn't like this, not nearly as much law enforcement and heavy artillery presence.

Once at the party, which we arrived around ten PM, it was just clear even before we entered the ballroom that this party, dubbed THE PARTY, was on another level. It was indeed, THE party. It blew TI away, made us feel a little sorry for our host back there. I mean this Wynn party was akin to...a 500 plate Persian wedding at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. The stops were mostly pulled.



These pics don't even do justice to the event, it was pretty high end. A lot of the men were in tuxedos, and those who weren't were dressed like me in a dark sport coat with a collared shirt and no tie. (But they almost universally wore white shirts, I'd like to think that I one upped them with my purplish colorful Gucci shirt. 🥳)

You could just feel the caliber of the crowd. It reminded me of a line from The Great Gatsby, something about being "aware of the easy money in the vicinity."

Even though we arrived as most of the guests were eating dessert, they did a rewind for us and served us the complete meal.

Appetizer:

Main course:

Actually to be fair, the food was better at TI. Although presented more ornately at Wynn, the tenderloin medallion was overcooked, and while Wynn presented lobster in its appetizer, TI's prawns were unmatched - TI always somehow gets great prawns we've experienced this before at other TI events.

Kelly Clarkson came on at about 10:45pm and kept belting out a lot of her new and old classics, which again we're not exactly KC fans, but she put on a great show.

It turned out that the family at our table, their parents (which the entire family was at the table, parents, couple siblings, sons and their girlfriends) knew my parents from my hometown, and we had a good time at that table.

We left at about 11:35pm to walk back to TI to see the fireworks.
The Wynn gift was...slippers?

(Maybe they slipped something into the room as well last night, may walk back over there shortly to check.) TI had cordoned off the "quay" in front of the casino just for the invited guests from the NY's Eve party (and also for some other casino patrons who hadn't quite made the mark for entrance to the dinner party, but played hard enough to warrant a cocktail party under the stars with a direct view of the fireworks).

We ended the night outside, watching the fireworks, which they were coming off of the rooftop of the Venetian too, and down the strip as well.

Racist? Heís said heís from Mexico which makes him you know, Mexican! As far as the wall comment that was me mocking Americans not Mexicans lol. The Nathan part was mocking Nathan so Iím really not sure where the racist rant comes in?!?
